Consultations - What They Are and Why They Are Important

Have you ever came looking for a specific business and kind of felt lost? Like you were not sure what was to come next or that you really got your point across on what you wanted. This is more common than it should be. Many customers looking for a very specific type of service can leave the business feeling a little uneasy and not confident about their purchase. If you are spending your hard earned money on a service, you should be leaving with the confidence that you can take over the world (or something similar to it). 

One way Kaytee Lorentzen Photography has tried to help customers is by holding their hand every step of the way. KLP wants to make sure you don't EVER feel lost or that you don't have a voice when it comes to the photography service. In order to do that, I have decided to give complimentary consultations before booking, and before purchasing photographs. That way, you have time to ask any questions, explain what you want, and make sure you are happy before any major decisions are made. 

Consultation 1 - Before Booking

This is the first consultation you will have with me (Kaytee Lorentzen - the owner) before you even hand me a penny of your money. You may be asking why I give up my time for free. Because I want you to feel like I am a perfect fit for you or your event before you even hire me. You may REALLY want studio portraits and I just have to tell you that I don't specialize in that. I do natural light photography. This way, you don't spend your hard earned money then become disappointed. 

It's important to ask any questions you may have before hand or tell the photographer what you want just to make sure everything is crystal clear to you when making your decision on hiring a photographer. 

Consultation 2 - Viewing Party

It's not the kind of party with streamers, balloons, and spiked punch. This is where you will be able to view the pictures of the session before making any purchases with print or adding on a personalized app. We (You, your loved ones in the photographs, and myself) will gather together and watch them on a screen and watch the memories before you. This is normally my favorite part because there is normally a lot of "oohs" and "aahs" at this consultation. 

This is also where if you were to purchase the app what you top 20 are to carry around on your phone. The viewing party is important because you can see which photographs you would like to purchase and you can see it up close before you make any of those decisions.


Having these complimentary consultations will not only create great memories, but a positive one because you will only be able to get what you really want from KLP. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me here.
