Tell me more!
I've been struggling with my clients showing up to their sessions and not being fully prepared. From chapped lips and chipped nail polish to wrinkled clothing and wet hair. I've had it all. I knew that I was doing something wrong and not properly prepping my clients but I didn't know how to help them.
Amanda's course outlined exactly what she does to ensure that her clients are camera-ready. Since taking the class, I now know how to prep my clients. I've been working on a What to Wear Guide, Hair and Nail Guide, and Style Survey. I also started doing fashion consultations and offering professional hair and makeup. These changes have resulted in my clients showing up confident and prepared and I'm getting images that I'm super excited about.
I always saw fashion photographers online and how amazing their clients looked and wondered why my pictures couldn't look like theirs. I knew they had a whole team of stylists, but how could I, a senior photographer, have something like that for my clients?
Once I started offering makeup & hair styling as well as wardrobe styling, word got around FAST that I was offering a "once in a lifetime" portrait experience. And guess what? I didn't even have a studio. My clients were being styled in their homes and I was styling their outfits out of the trunk of my car. Before I knew it, my clients were telling all their friends how amazing they felt for their sessions and my booking shot through the roof!
AFTER TONS OF TRIAL & ERROR WHILE SUCCESSFULLY PREPPING MY CLIENTS THROUGH ALL STAGES OF MY BUSINESS, I CAN'T WAIT TO SHARE WITH YOU WHAT I LEARNED.
