The IPS Process:
1. Have a consultation to discuss how it works, expectations, and get to know each other.
2. Capture the photoshoot with intent of delivering 25-30 images to the client.
3. Send over 2 sneak peaks.
4. Two weeks later, reveal their images via slideshow at Premier Ordering Session (or IPS session) for the first time.
5. During ordering session, label images as Favorite, Maybe, and No’s.
3. Determine the products that they’d like to order for themselves, then allow add-ons after they hit the minimum ordering fee.
4. Determine the products that they’d like to order for their family members.

1. Build a relationship with your clients.
2. Remind your clients of the value of prints and products.
3. Do not undercut yourself.
