The First Year Program!!!
Photo albums become storybooks
Each of my packages includes either an 8x8" or 10x10" 24-page custom album that clients receive at the end of the program.
At the start of the year, I provide my clients with a questionnaire form to fill out with each session and ask them to provide special material in the coming months to mix in with the images in their album.
These additions can include sentimental quotes, personal messages, letters from the parents, pictures drawn by the baby’s siblings, and fun facts about the child from each stage. The overall idea here is to create a storybook of the first year that families can always look back on. A child’s first year goes by fast, so I like to give parents the opportunity to slow down and enjoy the experience. With the storybook album, parents get to think about these details as the year goes on and get an insight into their memories when the year is over — how they felt at each stage, little moments they might have forgotten, and pictures of their baby to follow every step of the way. Giving clients meaningful displays Along with the storybook album, clients also receive a whole wall display consisting of 3–4 portrait products that they can incorporate into their home. But instead of only selling one collage or multiple portraits from one session, I have clients select one portrait image from each photo session. This way, they get a Framed Print, Gallery Wrap, or other product of their choice with every stage. Then at the end of the year, they have a whole display that cohesively represents their child’s first year.
