Treat Your Clients Like Family
Bijgewerkt: mei 15
When it comes to how I interact with my clients it's simple - I treat 'em like family.
If you read my Imposter Syndrome post then you know I used to be a photographer who had negative self-talk and low confidence in my ability to be a good photographer. That affected the way I would interact with my clients. I used to be quiet, never wanted to touch them when I posed them, I was very awkward. Now, that's all out the window.
Every encounter is a chance for me to spread love and establish a relationship with a client. I want them to be as comfortable as possible during a photo session.
After I learned how to worry less and love myself more I was able to translate that into my interactions with clients and potential clients. Now, when someone books a maternity shoot I'm more prone to treat them like family - "Yay, congratulations on your bundle of joy." I've learned that this small gesture makes my clients more comfortable with me. I'm now more comfortable making small talk and taking my time instead of rushing through a session.
I believe that every encounter is a chance for me to spread love and establish a relationship with a client. I want them to be as comfortable as possible during a photo session. Photography does help support my family with additional income, but more than that it affords me great reach and connection with people to establish a photography family.
My family is small right now, but I love each client. I celebrate with them via social media. And like my biological family there are so many of us and I can't wait to add more people to my photography family.
