A Session Spark: Documenting Progression

Imagine having less clients and more sessions. Instead of working so hard to find your next client, think about what it would be like to photograph them again and again by documenting progression of something memorable – a series of sessions.

Honestly, this Session Spark could be applied to any kind of progression. What have you done in your life that has taken a significant period of time to complete? A few things that come to mind are building a home or home renovations, weight loss, studying and preparing for a big test, or even high school happenings. Let’s face it, life is one big progression. We are always working towards something – whether small or a big dream.

If you have a client working towards something and they share it in their interview with you, consider documenting it. Consider doing a series of mini sessions in order to documenting something big in their lives. I hope that this blog opens your mind from seeing sessions as 60 minutes of allotted time.

Documenting Progression

Author: MarieMasse
I help client documentary photographers fine-tune their workflow + marketing game, so their work is filled with sessions that represent their voice + client values while earning a living. I shoot undirected, off-beat stories that aren’t preserved often enough (like the story of couples before starting a fam or becoming empty-nesters – a dream project of mine), so my clients’ old box of photos is a meaningful, visual diary of their life + legacy to leave behind.
