Offering unique keepsakes like this interactive album is one of the easiest ways to upsell your portrait sessions. Jodie of Fresh Art Photography shares, "I did back-to-school mini sessions a few weeks ago and thought it would be really fun to make an album that the kids could fill in themselves! Combining photos with their handwriting and drawings will make an amazing keepsake! I took your Interactive Keepsake Album and customized it. I wanted to add space for their drawings so I left most of the cover blank... a fun space for them to add in their own details. The first and last two pages also are completely blank for them to use. I wanted them to draw a self-portrait also which I think will be neat with actual images of them for comparison in the same book! I changed some of the questions and added in new ones also (taking into consideration the ages of my little clients). I printed the 8x8 soft-cover book from MPIXPro because this was just my gifted add-on (so the soft cover keeps my costs down) plus the press-printed book will be easy to color on in a variety of mediums. I am in love with this little book and can't wait to make them for my own kids! I think it takes the idea of capturing your kids at the start of the school year to a whole new level because their drawing and handwriting change SO much during a school year... maybe even more so then they do physically in a photo. I hope these become something my client's treasure!"

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.
