It’s January, and there is so much to be excited about with the new year! If you missed my last post, be sure to check it out. Most likely, you are in one of the honorably mentioned groups that are making this business a success, and I thank you for that!
As I mentioned in my last post, my mantra for 2018 is “Best Year Ever”. I already have a few weddings, family portraits, and senior portrait sessions on my calendar, workshops, training events, and photography conferences to attend, and a multitude of ideas that I’m bringing to the table to improve YOUR portrait experience with Lauren Beesley Photography.
What's changing?! Up until recently, clients booked a session with me, we met at the agreed location, I took some photos, we all went home and I sent a bunch of digital files in an online gallery, never to be spoken of again....and well, if you want a quality photography experience, and hope to get real value from your investment, that just isn't good enough.
After several sessions over the past few years, I realized a few things. First, in the past, myself and other photographers running their businesses like I was would deliver 40-50 images per session, and some were great, everyone loved them, and others were just kind of "meh". Nobody wants "meh" photos in their gallery. Second, I noticed that many people pay to have quality photos, but don't really have a plan for what to do with their photos once they have the files. They might share a few pictures online, but then not know what to do after that. Should you hang some on the walls? What sizes should you get? Where do you even go for high quality prints (HINT: NOT Walmart or CVS or Shutterfly!)? Can you relate to these situations?
Starting this year, I am offering full service senior portrait and family photography. My services now include a pre-session consultation to find out not only what you want to see in your photos, but to get a feel for how you want to display and enjoy them after they are delivered, customized session options with more flexibility for locations and wardrobe changes, hair makeup and wardrobe styling services, and a personalized viewing and ordering session to help you select your most wall and album worthy images - helping you hand pick products and artwork designed perfectly for you and your home, as well as offering digital images to share online. Maybe the best part of all - you only buy what you love.
These changes are BIG, and all designed to help me serve you better, personalize your experience, deliver higher quality services and products that will last for generations, and help you get the full value from your photography investment. I cannot wait to bring these services to your senior and family portrait sessions in 2018!
