I just want to talk to you guys a little bit about a new idea I'm really excited about. Vision Boards!! Something I know a lot of my clients struggle with is how to decide and express what kind of look they're hoping for with their Engagement, family, or child photography session. Do I wan't a modern look, a romantic look, vintage? What kind of clothing and what location will help make my ideas a reality? How do I explain all this to Karah? Easy, Vision Boards! Go to Pinterest and make an account if you don't have one. Then start searching. If you have no idea what your vision is yet, try searching for something basic like "Engagement Photography ideas". Here's what I saw when I searched that phrase
Just start scrolling down and look at what comes up. When you see something you like, click on it. You'll see something like this
Click on the red button that says Save. Another little box will pop out and on it will be another button with a red + and the words create a board. Click on it and name your board anything you like. Keep going, saving things to the board you made. You might start to see that most of the photos you've saved have a certain look to them. Maybe they're all on the beach, or in the city, maybe they're playful or romantic. Once you notice what they have in common you can start refining your search. You don't have to do your whole board in one day, in fact I don't recommend it. Take your time and get it just right. At least a week before your session, its time to send your board to me so we can decide where to do your photos and so that I can prepare. Go to your board and click on the button with three dots near the top right of the screen, then click Send Board. You should see this
type in email@example.com and then click to send. Everyone has different taste and different ideas and I want to make sure that all of my clients get exactly what they're looking for. I can't wait to see what you guys come up with!
