create the perfect senior magazine and resource guide
Today's fan share is based on just one of the templates that comes with the Complete High School Senior Marketing Kit. Kristina of Kristina Young Photography shares, "I based my Senior Portrait Guide off of the content from the High School Marketing Kit brochure. I knew I wanted to pull together a comprehensive piece that included everything any Senior (and their parents!) would want to know. But I was stumped on how to pull it all together, and what to include. The 24-page brochure provided me with an "ah-ha" moment and I was able to re-brand, tweak, and add to the content to arrive at a perfectly polished product. I created an online PDF version, as well as a hard-copy magazine that I kept at my studio, and brought with me on consults. This year, I was able to easily replace the images with new Seniors, tweak the content as needed (i.e. changing up packages, adding in what I'd learned the prior year), and voila, another gorgeous magazine!
I've added in elements like A Note to The Parents, The Headshot, Friends & Family, Product Shots, a bit about My Style, Before, During & After (to manage expectations) and What's Next (so they understand how to book). I also created an Important Points (a.k.a the Fine Print) to state up front important details about deposits, scheduling, copyright, Facebook tagging, and ordering deadlines.
I love this product for so many reasons. I love that it spells everything out online for clients that want to have it all in one place, immediately. It's beautiful, professional and polished and there is so much excitement around the cover. I had my intern help me narrow down all the potential covers and when we landed on this year's, we knew it was perfect.Â I also pull elements from all the other templates for use in graduation announcements and invitations as well as just having those designs in my arsenal!"

The turquoise waters of the Bahamas, the dramatic Rocky Mountains, the vistas of Iceland- endless romantic images pop into our minds when we think of destination weddings. And that is why, almost every wedding photographer at some point wants to give them a go.
So we’re going to tell you how to find them, book them, and prep for them.
clients you love + photography you are excited about + doing it your way = happy photographer
We think a shift should be made in photography. A happiness shift. You likely got into photography because you love taking photographs. And then the reality of making a living at it started to creep in, and you became bound to jobs you didn’t really want to do, because you needed the money. We’ve been there, and yep, it stinks.
Here’s a saying we find really annoying:“do what you love, and the money will follow.”Umm, nope. If we asked every photographer out there if they are working hard, they would say yes. But if we asked every photographer out there if they are raking in the big bucks, many would say no.
