As I'm sitting packaging up a few orders, I thought I would give you a little peek into what's inside and show you what you can expect from the end product of a session with me....
I offer clients a choice on the type of package they order. When a session is booked, a session fee is paid and then a package is chosen and ordered after the proof images are viewed. My most popular package is my premium USB package (ordered by 8 out of 10 clients). This package includes all images on a personalised wooden USB and a 6x4 print of each image. I think it's important for me to include prints with my packages and not just a digital image. I want my clients to be able to see and hold a printed image of their baby and not just hand them a usb that they can't look at until they plug it in at home.
I'm not sure about you, but looking at the image below doesn't stir much emotion in me. I love physical prints in my hand that I can touch and feel and not just a usb. This is why I like to include prints in my digital packages and would love to give my clients a greater option of printed products in the packages they purchase this year.
This images below give you an idea of what a package from Lynne Harper Photography might look like. Even though I sell digital packages, I still put so much effort into making them pretty and giving clients a physical product to take away with them.
I like to tie my prints and usbs in little cotton bags and box them in a crisp white box along with any additional prints that have been ordered. This is then all sealed with tape that has my logo on. I love all of these little finishing touches to my packages!
I'm currently working on new packages for 2018 which will hopefully give you the option of wall displays and printed books/albums to accompany your digital images. I have so many amazing products up on my walls and I'd love to be able to provide clients with affordable, beautiful art for their homes too. I have my favourite images of my girls up on my walls that I look at, and make me smile all day, every day....and I want to make sure that I am giving my clients that too and not just a wooden USB.
I hope you like my new packages when they launch. They are still very much a work in progress so if you have any thoughts on digitals v printed products then please don't hesitate to drop me a message or comment on the blog. If you are already booked in with me, please don't worry, you will still be able to purchase my 2017 packages if you prefer.
Thanks again for reading!
