3 Ways to Get Moms as Clients for Your Photography Business

Mother's day is a great way to not only bring in a lot of new clients but can also be a great way to show some extra appreciation for the many moms in your community. While May can be a busy time for most photographers you don't want to pass on the opportunity to do something special just for the moms near you. When you develop a relationship with these moms early they are more likely to think of you when they need photos of their family, kids, or special events. Here are 3 ways you can attract more mom clients to your business for Mother's Day or any day of the year.

1) Host Mommy and Me Mini Sessions

One of the best ways to bring in new clients is to set up a mini session. Mommy and me mini session are a fantastic way to promote your business to new clients who may not have the means or time to book a full session with you. While mini sessions can be a good amount of work in a short period of time they can be hugely successful and beneficial. Not only will you get to meet new clients but, assuming all goes well, you will have a significant amount of raving reviews to help boost your reputation as well as get some new referrals.

You can offer a Mother’s day photography class or a Mommy and Me Photography Class for them to bring their littles. It can be a great way to make new connections, bring in new clients and get your named passed around to a whole new market.
