Here are our top 10 tips for success. Download your FREE full guide and phone script here. Created for Design Aglow by contributor Megan DiPiero.

1.You have two ears and one mouth so listen twice as much as you talk.

2. Smile first. Always smile before you talk.

3. Never focus on price. Talk about your sessions and products.

4. Questions, questions. It's about them, not you. Ask the right questions and genuinely care about what they have to say!

5. Weave into the conversation: website, style, family, products.

6. Most clients have not thought about products. This is where we get to shine as trusted advisors and open them up to new possibilities.

7. Help make this easy for your clients (and for you) by having a planning session prior to the shoot.

8. Model your phone consultations with a service-focused, active-listening approach.

9. Confidently present the products that are right for your clients at the prices that are right for your profitable business.

10. Practice and polish your approach at every opportunity. You will be fantastic!

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.

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.
