Creating A Professional First Impression

Creating A Professional First Impression



Today we have a lovely fan share from Ali Peterson of Skyy Blue Photography. Ali writes, "Using several elements from the Essential Pre-Session Consult Kit, I was able to complete my Client Welcome Packet. The Client Commitment Guide was altered to include my products and pre-designed wall layouts, as well as an added page for preparation suggestions. I also include the Questionnaire, which I've made a few changes to so that it relates directly to my clients. I like the fact that the 8 page brochure has tons of information in one place. Keeping the price list separate makes it easy to change when my prices change. And the Questionnaire is a great way to get the consultation rolling. The whole package was so easy to match to my brand. It looks great and makes me feel confident in my business. The first client to receive the new welcome packet actually admitted that they were impressed at my level of professionalism. First impressions are key to getting clients to trust and value you, and the Essential Pre-Session Consult Kit gives me the first impression I want."

Thanks for sharing, Ali!

Well, hello! I'm a boudoir and wedding photographer from Pennsylvania; I am based in both in Philadelphia and in the mountains of Northeast, PA. I have a love for shooting film, vivid colors, fluffy dogs, salty snacks, binge watching Netflix, sarcasm, and napping. My road to becoming a photographer isn't a very poetic or adventurous story: I was a painter and had always pursued the thought of going to school for fine art. I took an introduction to film photography class in my senior year of high school and just fell in love with the medium. I've pursued my own photography business ever since and am still shooting with film!

One thing we love about living in Portland is the strong emphasis on sustainability and a genuine concern for the environment. The natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest has obviously inspired locals to care and take action, to protect the lushness surrounding them. The name of the game here is conservation and preservation - with multiple trash/recycle/compost bin options in every restaurant and coffee shop, to chicken coops adorning backyards aplenty. We’re so pleased to see this positive trend hit the design and technology spheres, as hard copies become a thing of the past and the Cloud becomes the Internet’s new storage bin.

I’m Cheyenne, and I’m a body positive, self love boudoir photographer based in Philadelphia. I love my mama, my puppy girl Penny, my babe, and cheesesteaks. When I was 13, I picked up my first camera. Two years later I started a little business photographing families, babies, and a very tiny wedding! I continued to shoot through my time in art school and eventually decided to fully dive into creating a well rounded business for myself. I left college after my junior year and worked my butt off to build up my business.
