The Benefits of a Post-Session Guide in Enhancing the Client Experience

A pet photography session is so often an entirely new and unfamiliar experience for many. You pushed through the discomfort of making the call for your pre-session consultation, made strides in understanding what to expect when preparing for your dog photography session, and–with an I-can’t-believe-it expression of delightful surprise–gushed to me all throughout your session at how well your dog is doing…even when the internal chaos of that moment feels like a three-ring circus.

But now what? Well, we’ve reached my–and my clients’–favorite part: the reveal and ordering appointment. Your reveal and ordering appointment is perhaps the most exciting part because it’s the first time you’ll see your images! Together, we’ll choose your favorites, view product samples, and finalize how you wish to enjoy your images in your home. You’ll also place your order at this time.

OK, that may all make sense on a surface level. You understand the processes. You’re excited about the possibilities…yet you’re feeling subtle waves of this underlying uncertainty. Now what? What’s next?

And that is completely 100% normal and expected. And that’s exactly why I’ve created a post-session guide designed to bridge the gap between a successful session and your reveal and ordering appointment.
