A great way to increase your income as a senior photographer is with mini sessions! Whether you’re a mini pro or just starting to offer them, having a completely branded & well thought out, educational campaign and commitment process is a great way to not only charge higher prices, but run efficient sessions as well.

Things to consider before offering mini sessions:

  1. Social Media Marketing: how will you tell your audience and potential clients about your minis? Consider a detailed campaign that showcases your mini dates, themes, product included, sign up process, etc.
  2. The Inquiry Process: when people ask about your mini sessions, how will you answer their questions? Will you email each one of them back with a custom answer? Or will you have a beautiful client guide that explains the mini session process and pre-answers any questions they may have?
  3. Client Prep: when someone chooses to invest in a mini session with you, how will you help them prepare for the session? They’ll need to know what to wear, where to meet you, your policies, and any products you offer after the session.
  4. Gallery Delivery: you’ll need to have a plan in place for delivering their images to them with your printing policies and any upsell campaigns you plan on offering them. Are you going to try and sell them an album afterwards? How about gift prints or a canvas? You’ll want to know all of this ahead of time and have a system in place.
  5. Mini Session Client Organization: plan on juggling a lot of mini session clients? You will need to have an organized system of keeping up with who has paid, what day and time they’re scheduled for, when they received their gallery, and more.

So now that you’ve just read all that… are you prepared and ready to start offering senior mini sessions? If the thought of getting all this in place overwhelms you, don’t worry… we’ve got your back!
