Ready to make some bank?

Let me show you the way.

Mini Sessions don’t have to look like the “$250 including 10 digital files” that we see all too often on social media. Talk about running yourself ragged and making NO money! Ick.

So let me reach you how to launch seriously profitable promotions that will completely change the way you think about Minis & Specialty Sessions.

This Guide will have you running successful Mini and Specialty sessions in no time! 

Mini and Specialty Sessions sometimes get a bad reputation as “cheap” sessions but this guide is here to change that! In fact, my average sale on my Minis is typically close to the same as my full priced regular sessions, and I am only doing a small fraction of the work! It’s truly mind blowing.

This course is applicable to all levels of photographers, whether you’re new to the business and trying to get clients in the door or you’re established and want to run something different and fun! This is even great for super successful studios who are looking to bring in MORE money in LESS time! Seriously, anyone can use the principles in this guide to revolutionize the way business is done.

Your Mini and Specialty Sessions can be just as profitable as a regular session. Yup! You read that right, just because the session is shorter does NOT mean it can’t be just as profitable!

In this course we cover:

  • Why/When you should offer Mini and Specialty Sessions
  • How to reframe the way your clients view Mini and Specialty Sessions
  • How to properly market Mini and Specialty Sessions
  • Mini Sessions as a whole ass business model
