PHOTOGRAPHING MINI-SESSIONS: WHY AND HOW?? Ask Anything | Photographer Education

Where are all my fellow photographers at?! This video is definitely for you (though it isn’t exactly short– I’m a bit long winded! Don’t worry, that’s why I gave you the play bar so you can skip around if needed!).  After being asked by multiple different people, some newer photographers and some more advanced that are looking for efficiency and best practice, about mini-sessions, I decided to do a facebook live all about mini-sessions! Whether you are new to them and considering for the first time or a seasoned photographer who is curious how they work super successfully for someone else, this video is for you!

You will learn:

  • The 3 reasons I love mini-sessions and how they apply to be being primarily a wedding photographer vs a portrait photographer
  • Exactly how I run them, and some things that have not worked in the past and brought me to my current workflow
  • Some Q/A about mini-sessions including: how to price, what to include for your clients, when to offer them, and how to schedule them.

I hope it is super helpful for you!

I'm Jill, a wedding and portrait photographer based out of Chicago and Central Illinois, and available world wide! I'm also a photography educator, wife to my favorite person on the planet, mama to 3 amazing kids and an energetic Aussie, and obsessed with statement jewelry and all desserts (especially fruit pies!). 

As a past high school teacher, I have a major heart for education. After going full time in my business, I have built a business I love that gives me an almost 6 figure salary and allows me to be home part time with my kids.  I dream for you to run a business that enhances your life and lights you up, and I believe I can help you learn how to do it with a little hustle and a lot of heart!

Hello Friend!

Are you a Photographer?

Start HERE! 

Are you a mom/hobbyist?

Start HERE! 

You're in the right place!  As a past high school teacher, educating others is my life's work and a HUGE part of my business!  I have been teaching moms and hobbyists how to use their camera from first purchasing it all the way to coaching them into businesses of their own, and I'd love to help you as well, wherever you are (and whatever camera you have!).

I'm so glad you are here!  Teaching Photographers and other small business owners how to run more joyful, successful, and profitable businesses is one of my favorite parts of my business!  I specialize in working with photographers to make their goals a reality (or figure out what their goals should be in the first place!).
