capitalizing on the opportunity of extended family sessions

capitalizing on the opportunity of extended family sessions

"Dear Photographer, We would like to schedule a session as an anniversary gift to our parents.  It will be me, my two siblings, all of our kids, and of course our parents.  How much would something like this cost?"

You received the inquiry and you just aren't sure how to respond. Handling extended family session inquires - and shooting the session itself - can pose challenges above and beyond those of smaller, immediate family portrait sessions. And often just working through the logistics can be daunting and cause you to back away from these requests resulting in unbooked sessions and missed opportunities.

Design Aglow is here to help with our “Guide to Shooting Extended Family Sessions”.

We have created an essential roadmap that will assist you in managing the end-to-end process of extended family sessions as well as ready-to-go content that you can brand and immediately use to market and sell these sessions. As an added bonus, we've provided you a “must-have” shot list, a family tree worksheet, and a few posing ideas that will help to ensure you capture everything your clients want and need, and then some!

Special thanks to Rebekah Westover Photography, Fresh Art Photography, Timeless Treasure Photography, Kristina Young Photography and Missy Saunders Photography & Design for the lovely images within our guide.

I actively use so many of their resources: The Big Picture Planner for my own sanity, The Inspire Guide to help my clients find their vision, many design templates for books and albums, and OF COURSE the Albums. Just to name a few.

Do you feel overworked and underpaid?
Does it pain you to deliver digital images...but no album or wall portraits?
Do you believe in tangible products, but don't think your market can support higher priced items?
