Earlier this week, I hosted a Clubhouse call all about… you guessed it, mini-sessions! My students call me the Mini-Session Queen, which I just adore. And I LOVE being able to drop some knowledge for other photographers who are thinking about diving into mini-sessions. This Clubhouse Mini-Sessions Q & A was a chance for my students and other photographers to ask anything they wanted about mini-sessions.
If you aren’t familiar with Clubhouse, basically it’s a new social platform that’s like a giant zoom call with audio only. People hop into “rooms” and either engage in conversation or just listen to the conversation happening. Right now it’s only available for iPhone users, and is by invitation only. Needless to say, it’s not easy to get into a room! I knew I wanted to be able to share our conversation with everyone that ISN’T on Clubhouse, so we recorded this especially for YOU!!
Make sure you listen to the Business Journey Podcast episode to hear all of the questions and answers… there were some really great ones! As you probably know, I 100% believe in the power of mini-sessions. I completely believe that you can build a profitable and sustainable business with them. Or, use them to supplement your income during slower seasons. Whatever your reason is to start planning mini-sessions, I hope this Q & A inspires you!
And if you’re not sold yet on mini-sessions, make sure you check out my recent podcast episodes about Mini-Session Misconceptions. Trust me, this is a good one if you’re hearing any of the lies in our industry about mini-sessions! I’ve also got some great tips to start planning for your spring mini-sessions, too!
Don’t forget! I’m hosting a FREE class all about mini sessions on February 24th and 25th. You can sign up here and if you can’t attend live, that’s okay. Sign up anyway and get a replay!
