Have you ever shown up to a session and cringed a little bit at the neon green shirt your client showed up in? When I started photographing couples, I would just email them when & where to meet — and that was pretty much all I did to prepare them for our session together. Sometimes it worked out fine, but more often than not, my clients showed up not knowing what to expect and I left feeling like I could have done way more to prepare them ahead of time.
Enter: the Session Guide. What started off as a couple of pages with outfit advice turned into a 20+ guide filled with information on not only what to wear, but also how to choose the right location, mindset, and what to expect before/after the session. Sending out this guide before engagement sessions has been a game changer for my client experience. I no longer have to worry that my clients will show up totally unprepared, because all their questions have been answered before they’ve had a chance to ask.
