exciting news...

Wow…it’s been a great week with lots of fabulous marketing ideas from Willette Designs.
Kelly was super generous to share so many ideas. She has some more fun things to share with everyone…
but we are saving that for the forum.

I did not intend to start a forum when I started this blog. But after many wonderful people encouraging me {and leading me} in that direction…I’ve decided to do it.
I’m not sure when it will be ready…still working on that…but I hope it becomes a place for everyone to share ideas {and be inspired}. This forum will be full of information, marketing ideas, decorating ideas {we all know that’s my favorite}, friendships will be formed…it will not be a place to critique images {there are already great forums for that}. I feel the photographers I interview have so much to share and would love to share it with others…this will be a place for “all that sharing” and so much more!

I’m so excited {and nervous} for this new “division” of the Savvy Photographer.
And for all the members of the Savvy Sisterhood Forum…how about a Savvy Sisterhood Weekend Getaway…full of guest speakers and workshops…and goodies!!! This will be sometime next year…ohhh…it will be great!

Here's a question for you...Do looks really matter?

When it comes to packaging…maybe they do.

We all know the Tiffany’s blue box means something really special is inside…no matter what’s inside…it’s special because it’s in that little blue box.

Is it the same way when it’s comes to portraits?

Photographers all have different styles of photographing. And we also have different approaches to our marketing and packaging. Why do clients hire one photographer over the other…because we all have our own personal style and clients that hire us are attracted to our style. Recently on a trip to the market, I purchased grapefruit flavored soda…Not because I particularly wanted {or needed} grapefruit soda…But simply because I loved the can…it was pink. I was attracted to the simple pink can!

So when our clients pick up their images, do they value them more if they are packaged beautifully?

As a client, tell us your opinion…we photographers want to know…

send us your images of your packaging and marketing materials...

we'd love to see!
