Moments to Memories: Connecting with Clients with Amber Thorson

Are you wanting to book more emotive sessions? Do you want to take those beautiful moments during a session and turn them into memories your clients will keep for a lifetime? I have found that most of the emotion starts with the connection you have with your clients. Connecting with clients before the session and getting to hear their story makes for one beautiful session that will create a memory they will cherish for years to come.


Embracing Families with Teens

with Christa Paustenbaugh

Do you immediately start sweating when you get an inquiry for a session that includes pre teens and teens? Do you refer out sessions with older children and teens because they stress you out too much? Never fear, this is where I come in! Prior to my photography career, I worked as a social worker in middle and high schools for 10 years and have two teenagers of my own so they hold a special place in my heart! I’m going to walk you through how I prep for a session that includes teens before I even meet them. I’m going to arm you with strategies for your back pocket when things start to go awry. Follow along with me through a full session with 2 teens and how to create beautiful interactive images.
