Predicament

Mini sessions can be a challenge. We know clients love them. They’re affordable, fun, and fast. For you, mini sessions are hugely profitable, lead to full sessions, and broaden your network. But they can feel like a chore when scheduling everyone takes more time than it takes to shoot, edit, and send off galleries.

Solution

This is how booking works in Session: Your clients choose an available time slot, select a package, fill out your questionnaire, sign your contract, and make a payment.

Require payment before a spot is booked
You can collect a retainer or the full session fee from your clients before they can book a spot. You can also collect any remaining balance outside of session if you prefer. Each session and package you offer can have it's own payment options.
Get your contract signed and your questionnaire filled out during booking
Ask clients to sign your contract before they complete their booking. Create reusable contracts with smart variables that autofill essential client, and session details like session dates, client names, fees, locations, and more.
Real-time activity dashboard
Every one of your sessions gets its own live dashboard. You can see every visit to your session page, every client that is currently booking, every booked spot, and every payment—all in real-time.

Booking...

First come, first served. Never double book again

Mini sessions can get competitive, especially with limited time slots. With Session, once a client has begun booking, we reserve that spot for up to 15 minutes or until they are done booking. That way, nobody can take that spot from them.

"Before Session, I dreaded the thought of booking any type of group session like Mini Sessions and Mentor Sessions. All of the booking systems I had used before just weren’t cutting it. Not only was it time-consuming to set up each session, their user experience for clients just wasn’t great. Enter Session. A complete game-changer for my business! It’s incredibly user-friendly, has a beautiful interface, and makes setting up and booking sessions so effortless! I truly can’t recommend it enough for every photographer, regardless of the type of sessions you book!"
