Valentine's Day is behind us and the next major gift giving holiday is quite a ways away. But that doesn't mean you can't upsell products from family, maternity, and newborn sessions to the person who possibly loves those images most: Mom. Mother's Day is Sunday, May 12th (in the U.S.) and is the perfect opportunity to get a few extra fun and sentimental products into your clients' hands and hearts. At your upcoming order sessions, bring up the idea of gifts to the other decision making adult while Mom is MIA for a second. Parents love the idea of gift giving, and having the perfect products readily available for them (so they don't have to do the hard work) makes it that much easier!Here are a few hits we recommend adding to your vault:
From a very early age I loved taking pictures and looking at them in magazines and books, but the art of photography captured my heart when I was a teenager, on my first overseas trip to Wales. From that point, I began shooting with a little film SLR and having my friend model for me. In college I took some digital photography and visual communication courses as part of my communication studies major, and decided to pursue a career in photography. I became a legal business and took my first paid client at age 20, and it's been quite a journey and adventure over the past nine years.
I secretly bought a mail-order 35mm camera when I was 15, and took lots of ordinary photos of animals and nature for several years. Although I majored in art and studied photography in college, my career started in marketing and advertising, from the client service end. Then I had the most beautiful baby, found my old camera and realized how much I love photographing people.
