Today we have the perfect solution for those of you looking to completely prepare your clients for both their session and what to expect after the session. Andrea of Harstein Photography shares, "I used portions of both the Portrait Client Welcome Packet and the Wedding Client Welcome Packets along with the Pre-Session Consult Kit for my new moms (birth, newborn & first year photography). I personalized the products by using my branding and fonts. I took the "preferred vendors" piece from the wedding packet and converted it into a preferred vendors list for my new moms. I listed: Birthing class, OB-GYN, birthing center, midwife, birth resources, breastfeeding, cloth diaper source, boutique baby store, and boutique clothing & deals. I put all of the pieces into a presentation folder, tied a piece of hemp around it and added a flower. I LOVE IT! I think it looks professional and it gives me confidence to know that I have everything that I need to show a mom why she should choose ME for her birth and first year pictures. Between all three products, all of my marketing needs have been met. I'm so proud of them! The reactions I've received so far from clients has been great. It's so fun to watch a mom open it up with a smile on her face. One mom told me yesterday, "Gosh, you just know everyone, don't you? You're so connected", in regards to my preferred vendors list. It made me smile and I told her to just wait until after she's had this baby. She'll feel like she knows everyone, too! It was important to me to include it in my welcome packet, as a source from one mom to another."
Thank you so much for sharing Andrea! Enjoy your $75 shopping spree to the shop!
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.
The formula is simple.
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.
