For Photographers

I am so excited to introduce you to my August 2022 Star Students!! I LOVE my online course students, and this is such a fun way for them to humbly brag about all the amazing things they are doing!! This month, I’ve got 3 students to tell you about: Brandy, Janae and Susan. It’s my hope that you’ll be encouraged and inspired by all they are doing in their senior photography businesses!!

Before I took this course, I was struggling with… posing

Since completing the course, I have… more confidence

I was interested in this course specifically because… I need a visual mentor

If someone asked me about this course, I would tell them…Before joining the Senior Scoop, my confidence level was low. I really believe watching another photographer (a good one) work with clients is essential in understanding exactly what I’m supposed to be doing “out there”. Watching Hope interact with her clients has really helped me make my own clients feel at ease and enjoy their experience.

If I had to list my 3 biggest tangible WINS since completing the course, they would be… My best images, increased confidence and knowing how to make seniors feel great during sessions.

Before I took this course, I was struggling with… booking! I started my photography business when I moved to a small town where I didn’t know a soul.

Since completing the course… I have a full senior calendar and I’m able to run my business by mostly doing senior sessions (my favorite!!). My first year of spokesmodel (after just months of moving here and during the pandemic) I had 4 spokesmodels. The next year I had 7. This year I had a waitlist for my spokesmodels and had 23 girls on there!

I was interested in this course specifically because… I wanted to specialize in senior photography. I love photographing seniors because it’s such a fun and exciting time in their life and I have the unique opportunity to show them how beautiful they really are (inside and out!).

If someone asked me about this course, I would tell them… It’s definitely worth it. Hope makes the content fun and easy to digest even with a busy schedule and it is packed full of useful tips!

If I had to list my 3 biggest tangible WINS since completing the course, they would be… increased bookings, increased pricing and more confidence

Before I took this course… I always loved working with high school seniors but never knew how to market to get them booked since I’m a bit older and don’t have a child in schools. I moved to Florida after my own son graduated from college so to say I’m far removed from school aged teens is an understatement. So learning the best ways to connect with them to get them booked was key for me.

Since completing the course, I have… This year I’m running my second spokesmodel team and though it’s not too large it’s grown from the first year. I love my girls and love the whole process of seeing them blossom from the initial meet and greet to the end of the year. It’s amazing to see the growth these girls have in front of the camera. Inquiries are coming in more and more due to the program and I’m beyond excited.

I was interested in this course specifically because…Hope is the bomb and I love everything that she does with her senior girls and if I can replicate the feeling these girls have in my program I’m all for it.

If someone asked me about this course, I would tell them… Do it.. Don’t wait. Don’t hesitate. You are worth it. Your clients are worth it!

If I had to list my 3 biggest tangible WINS since completing the course, they would be… My bookings have increased, my pricing has increased and editing has become a breeze
