Planning for a successful session - Client Questionnaires


I want to take a moment to chat with you about how I always tailor your portrait session to your family's style and needs. I make it a priority to work with you and ensure that you get the images you dream of and ones that you'll be excited to get printed and display in your home.


One of the ways that I achieve this is by sending EVERY client a questionnaire (thanks to Iris Works!). These questionnaires are brief and easy to fill out - but the info you share is super helpful in my planning process and making the absolute most of our time together. The more detailed info you share, the better! A great example of this was a session I had recently with this adorable family.

So this mama really provided some amazing information when she completed her questionnaire. She messaged me after completing it and apologizing for the "novel" she wrote but I actually loved all the details! The information she provided about their sweet girl really helped me think of the moments to capture in our session. Many of the things she mentioned are usually worked into my sessions anyway - because I prefer those candid moments and documenting the connections and feelings in sessions as much as possible. So I'm always having families play and love on each other as opposed to just standing there looking at the camera. Here is a screen shot of her completed questionnaire:

And here is what I captured....

I was able to capture a lot of what she wrote about in her questionnaire. The key to ensuring that your session is even more successful is taking a few moments to complete the client questionnaire I send to you. This gives me a clear idea of your expectations for the session and what images and moments you really want to capture with your family.
