Questions covered with real answers:

  • What are your prices?
  • A close friend or family member contacts you for a session. They want to know your prices. You feel they want a discount (or just guilty like it’s the right thing to do). They may flat out ask for a discount. What do you say?
  • My friend got a discount, can I?
  • What would you charge for just a session without the fancy editing? I want a disc.
  • I only need one or 2 photos and don’t need them edited for my family. How much will that cost?
  • Why is there an increase in pricing?
  • I’m looking for a photographer for my son’s birthday party, how much would you charge to just come and take some candid photos?
  • What to say when reaching out to a vendor:
  • What to say when reaching out to another photographer:
  • What to say when you need to ask for a model release of photos you’ve already taken for a friend:
  • You shoot only during the Golden Hours, they want 12:00.
  • You shoot only on Thursdays and Saturdays, they want Monday.
  • Your package doesn’t include a disc, but they want to buy one.
  • What to do when a client doesn’t like a portion of your contract or model release and wants you to change it.
  • Friendly reminder for deposit/contract and final payment.
  • What to do when client hasn’t made final payment.
  • Hi! I’m so in love with your photos. We are expecting baby #2 soon – it’s a boy! We can’t really afford much, but I thought it would be fun to have you and your husband over for dinner. We’d love some photos of the new baby and I thought our girls would have a ball playing while we do a few photos. What do you think? You wouldn’t charge me for that right?
  • Just like at the start of a relationship, one of you has to make the first move. Get a solid booking.
  • You’ve sent your potential client all of the documents they need to finalize to book with you, but you haven’t heard back since your email a few days ago.
  • The booking is set in stone. What’s next? Sending welcome note or gift and include a thank you for booking is crucial. Add personality.
  • Reminder just before the session.
  • What to do when a client is a no-show or is an hour late and they beg you for more time (or demand it).
  • What to say when client keeps rescheduling.
  • What if my kid doesn’t cooperate?
  • What if I need to stop and feed baby or my 2.5 year old needs a potty break?
