FULLY CUSTOMIZABLE FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY TEMPLATES
WHICH TEMPLATE CAN WE PROVIDE FOR YOU?
Have you ever wondered how much email communication truly matters? One of the biggest disconnects we see in client experience for other photographers (and in all of the past mistakes we made!) is a lack of clear communication and expectations outlined during the emailing process. We have a UNIQUE opportunity to clarify, to set boundaries, to get on the same page with our inquiries and inquiries-turned-clients while we email them before the session occurs. These templates can give you a starting point for many different situations to make sure you've being thorough and not skipping a beat!
After 11 years of inquiries and bookings, we know what needs to be said during email communication
Your time is valuable.
Let me help you optimize your time by eliminating the pain points of figuring all of this out on your own.
We've created four resources to expedite your journey and get you up and running sooner!
Lightroom Editing Class
Photography & Editing Class bundle
If you're ready to learn how to use your camera, how to edit and how to start a business...
Just getting started?
We've got FOUR mini-classes for that.
We've broken down how to take your camera OFF of auto and shoot in manual in a SIMPLIFIED WAY! I've watched students take this class and create incredible businesses from it. Instead of sitting online for hours, flipping through your manual trying to figure it out... let me HELP YOU!
• You know how to set your aperture, shutter speed, ISO and white balance to get the kind of picture you've always wanted to create
• Your images are in better focus and getting sharper with practice
• Finally, you are able to achieve that pretty background blur called bokeh for an artistic and high-end look
• People see the pictures you are posting and start asking you to take some for them!
• You feel confident enough in different lighting situations to gain control over your settings and produce the best possible outcome... and that's when you know you may be ready to start a business with this! Or.. just take better pictures for your family and friends :)
Photography after classes...
• Maybe you haven't even taken your settings off of Auto yet, or when you do.. you're not getting the results you want
• You feel like the thought of shooting in manual is probably too complicated to even attempt
• You aren't sure about terms like aperture, ISO, shutter speed, white balance and more
• Taking pictures is something you LOVE to do but you're not quite getting the results you want yet, and you would love to improve your photography just for fun or maybe to start a business
• When you've tried to learn before, the wording is too technical and hard to understand... you're looking for something extremely simplified and easy to digest
Your photography now...
Say goodbye to AUTO mode! I don't want you to ever look back, LOL! And you know what? Once you get a good grip on manual... you won't want to. Before we dive into details, I want to set you up in manual mode.
When you look at the back of your camera... it can seem IMPOSSIBLE to know what to choose and focus on settings-wise. This is why I have simplified it down to the four key settings you need to learn and understand first before diving into anything else.
We're going to move forward with our basic four settings into a place where you understand WHAT is next once you know where to find these and what they mean... but we're not explaining this in an overly-technical way. Everything is easy to grasp and simplified!
You can know your settings ALL day long but if you don't have your light right, it will never matter! We're showcasing good light, bad light, weird light and other types of light we want you to be able to get a handle on.
Watch us move through our yard, home and manage the light and all settings accordingly. We KNOW that you can you get a grasp on how to approach bad light and what to avoid, and then when the optimal times to shoot are for the BEST possible results!
If you picked up the editing bundle, you'll watch us edit all kinds of scenarios in Lightroom Classic. It's SO much easier to watch someone else correct things and change settings around than to look online over and over and try to piece it together!
Hands down, this is one of my FAVORITE classes I've ever created! That's because it was launched in the beginning of the pandemic in 2020 and I watched people who were stressed about providing income create new ways to bring in money for their family. Some of my students went on to go FULL TIME with their new business and there is literally nothing better than seeing people who were unsure about what to do and even unsure about if they had what it takes to go on and do BIG THINGS that make an impact on their customers and clients and make an income for their family. Read MORE below to see what our students are saying!
By joining the class you agree to the following terms and conditions here.
We love to hear students tell us how much they've turned around and made or how they've set boundaries around their business that help them avoid burnout and serve clients better through their education at Salt Air School. Could you use this kind of change in your business? Or are you thinking of starting a business and want to see how someone else is doing it? You're invited to join NOW!
There are no contracts required or obligations to stay. $27 a month to apply what you learn to your business and build demand and increase income.
You also get to watch my mistakes, how I correct them and how I move forward from these moments. Being a photographer, no matter how many years is still a challenge but it's how you proceed that really matters!
I'm not talking about styled shoots. These are families that I work with here on the outer banks and you get an exclusive behind-the-scenes experience!
We created a LOW COST family photography membership where you can not only learn about aspects of running your photography business... but you also get to watch me work with REAL family clients!
What could you learn if you could watch REAL behind-the-scenes of a family photographer in action!?
• Business software, invoices and contracts
• Shooting at sunrise (behind-the-scenes)
• Personal branding
• How to streamline the booking process
• Newsletter marketing how-to
• Sunset family session at golden hour
• Discounting pricing for returning clients
• Challenging cloudy day session (behind-the-scenes)
• Camera settings
• Client communication
• Client pricing guide
• Client session guide
• Editing in Lightroom
• Marketing for FREE
• Instagram for business
• Hot summer day (behind-the-scenes)
Of course you'll have to show up and do the work, but when you leverage the power of education in the field you want to grow in... you can mature your business more quickly and have this growth lead to MORE INCOME. What would it look like if you could apply the things we're offering in Salt Air School listed above and by the end of a few months have your prices raised and your photography business creating more demand through your incredibly up-leveled client experience? It's a joy for me to offer this for such a low and accessible price point to you. We hope to see you in Salt Air School!
