Why do I do free family portrait sittings?
I have kids. It is chaos. Nothing ensures comical levels of chaos like paying upfront for a family portrait session. You just don't know what you're going to get! It can be super stressful. Stress and an "I need this to be perfect" sort of 'energy' very, very infrequently result in a magical family portrait. The very things that might drive you crazy as a parent could actually fuel a really fun photo shoot.
No financial risk means less stress and more fun. More fun means better pictures. Better pictures will (in my experience) lead to more sales.
So, I think offer free sessions is best for families and best for my little business.
So, these sessions aren't really free, are they?
The sessions are absolutely free. There's no obligation to buy anything. They will cost you only 25-minutes of your time. But you will love your pictures and i'm hoping you will find it impossible to resist buying them!
Why only 25-minute sessions?
How dare you.
Kidding. I'm kidding. The best photos (certainly when it comes to family photos) happen in maybe the first 15 minutes. And, this allows me to photograph lots of families in a single day.
