I’ve been in business for 12 years now, and I have a confession to make. I have not been serving my clients to the best of my ability.
I’ve been there to help them plan and choose the best location, wardrobe, time of day, etc., and delivered photos that thrilled them, but then I disappeared. They were left alone to figure out what and how to print. Because I really don’t like to be a pushy salesperson, I thought this was something clients would prefer. Over the course of my business, I’ve found this to not be true at all! They want and need my help; it’s why they hired a professional in the first place.
After the exciting initial viewing of their gallery, my clients would get back to life and one more thing got put on the to-do list. Then along came the online gallery expiration day and they either had to scamper to place their order or call me for an extension (which often led to more extensions.) The next question would be, “Can I just buy all the digitals?” which often ended up in a drawer to never see the light of day again. How sad!
That is all going to change.
I’m going to make YOUR experience the best it can be! We are going to get your photos on your walls or coffee table and out there to be shared with loved ones. From now on, all of my shoots will be followed up with an in-person ordering session. This is going to allow me to help guide you and be a sounding board for your ideas, while I give my advice and we actually LOOK at how things are going to appear on your walls. Don’t feel like digital files are the ONLY important thing. Enjoying your images every day is what matters.
During your session, we will schedule an appointment for 2 weeks after to view your photos at my studio. Together, we can sort through your favorites and decide what will work best in your home. We’ll see it all on the big screen as we mix and match photos that work well together to create a wall gallery for you. If you can’t pick just a few, we can talk through album options and you can hold samples in your hands to really see and feel them. Want a birth announcement or holiday card, but want to SEE the difference between pearl and felt paper? Well now you can as we have lots of samples in the studio to browse. Let’s face it. You are investing in custom portraiture and you should get the full custom experience.
It’s going to be great. I promise!
(Oh, but if you happen to be a client who lives afar and are only visiting here, we will still be able to post your gallery online so you can view it when you get home so fear not!)
To kick off this exciting new phase, I am super excited to show off my new line of frames. They are clean and simple, can work in a rustic home or an elegant, modern one, and they will feature you photos beautifully. Here’s a peek…
