Have you noticed how lately converting leads for Newborn Sessions seems to be more difficult than before?

At times it can feel like an uphill struggle when conversions aren’t going well – and it can leave you questioning if your work is good enough, or what you’re doing wrong. Why aren’t they booking you? 

Is it because of the cost of living crisis? Is everybody really just “shopping around” for the best deal?

As it’s always the case, reality is a little more complex and what you are experiencing is the result of a few factors combined:

  • Newborn photography is now a highly competitive, overcrowded market
  • Photographers are now more prepared when it comes to marketing, and ready to invest time and money on different platforms
  • Yes, people are a little more careful when it comes to spending money… But more than anything, they are continuously presented with high quality options, sometimes at incredibly good prices

While most of the above is outside your control there are still strategies you can implement to boost your conversion rates and turn those leads into loyal clients.  

Now let’s tackle the challenge head-on, in this blog post we will share the top five tips that should significantly help you improve your conversion rates and transform leads into clients; let’s get started! 

Tip One – Respond Promptly to Leads and Enquiries 

We all know the saying, “Time is of the essence” and this is certainly true in the world of newborn photography. Prompt responses to leads and enquiries can make all the difference in converting potential clients into bookings.   

However, we understand that when you’re busy capturing those precious newborn moments it can make it challenging to respond as quickly as you’d like.   

When it’s not feasible to answer messages and emails within minutes and – for busy times – ensure you have a good, clear, automated response that directs your client to your social media and reassures them that you will be in touch very soon. 

Make sure you keep an eye on your messages and emails, and allocate time to respond properly as soon as possible.  

  • Respond within minutes whenever possible
  • Have automated responses for busy times
  • Reassure a full response as soon as possible

Tip Two: Test Your Replies & Pitch Your Tone Right 

When responding to enquiries, finding the right balance between friendly and professional is crucial – as it is to test a few different replies to see which one guarantees the highest conversion rate.

For example, start by testing a shorter and slightly longer version of your email. Also, compare the response rate when giving more information about your prices directly in your email, instead of referring to PDFs or websites.

It’s also essential to strike the right tone in your communication. Being overly casual (“Pally pally”) can come across as unprofessional, while being too formal might create a barrier between you and your potential clients. 

Consider tailoring your tone to match the client’s level of enthusiasm. by striking the right balance, you’ll create a positive impression and build a good customer rapport, increasing the likelihood of them booking a session. 

  • Avoid filling your emails with information about you – focus on THEM
  • Offer congratulations and build be personal: if using templates, make sure you personalise them as much as possible! 
  • Test different replies to enquiry to achieve high response rate

Tip Three: Don’t Make Clients Work Too Hard! 

In today’s fast-paced world, potential clients expect quick and convenient access to information, especially when it comes to pricing. Avoid making them work hard to find your rates, or jump through hoops! 

Instead of sending them links to lengthy price guides or directing them to navigate through your website , provide some clear and upfront information in your initial response; with at the very least your session fee and the price that packages start from. 

By presenting your pricing information clearly and directly, you’re not only making their decision process easier and information quicker to re-visit but also demonstrating your professionalism and commitment to excellent customer service.

  • Remember that your clients are as busy as you are
  • Ensure your first email is succinct 
  • Make sure prices are easily retrievable

Remember that providing information about your services is totally part of your job: so don’t “punish” a client who have missed pricing information on your website by directing them to the same page they are coming from: take the time to help them and you will be rewarded.

Tip Four: Provide Direct Answers to Client Questions

As a follow on to Tip Three, when a potential client asks a particular question about your pricing or services, don’t leave them guessing. Answer their questions directly in your response, for example, if they ask for the price of a newborn session with all the images on USB, tell them! Don’t just direct them to a brochure or website. Of course you can make it clear that other options and products are available too! 

Imagine you’re shopping for a sofa, and you ask the salesman about the price of a specific model. How frustrating would it be if instead of giving you a clear answer, they handed you a thick brochure and told you to find the prices yourself? 

Just like in retail, excellent customer service is crucial to photography. If a client is comparing multiple photographers and you are the one who provides clear, direct answers to their questions, you’ll undoubtedly stand out as the more helpful and professional choice. 

Remember that providing information about your services is totally part of your job: so don’t “punish” a client who have missed pricing information on your website by directing them to the same page they are coming from: take the time to help them and you will be rewarded.

  • Provide excellent customer service from the beginning so your client has faith in you
  • Be clear, direct and helpful
  • Answer specific questions without referring to links/websites 

Tip Five: Follow Up! Don’t Underestimate the Power of Persistence 

We cannot stress this one enough! In today’s fast-paced world, people often delay important decisions, putting off responses ‘until tomorrow’ With hectic schedules and endless to-do lists, expecting immediate responses or on-the-spot decisions is often unrealistic. 

Don’t assume that a lack of immediate response signifies disinterest. Instead, take proactive steps to follow up with potential clients and keep your services fresh in their minds. Invite questions and offer further information to encourage engagement and demonstrate your dedication to meeting their needs. 

A well-timed follow up can make all the difference between a lost opportunity and a successful booking. Trust us, it works! We’ve even had people thank us for reminding them when they thought they’d left booking too late. 

To help you with this process, you should also consider using WhatsApp Business for one of your touch points: this is an excellent tool as it allow you to send media files (images, videos, PDFs) in an easy way and without the need for annoying links.

Of course, you won’t win them all this way, but what have you got to lose? Try to follow up the day after their initial enquiry, then a few days later and then, if necessary, a little closer to their due date. It costs nothing but your time and could result in a significant pay off! 

  • Keep communication open
  • Gently remind them of you and your services
  • Share nurturing content like galleries, slideshow, useful blog posts

In the current over-crowded market, converting your leads requires patience, persistence and creativity – most likely, your leads have also enquired with other photographers, so make sure to delight them from the get go!

We don’t do sales calls, but if you feel we might be a good fit you can book a free discovery call to work with me for an hour and see how that feels.

Facebook Ads have always been a big part of our coaching The Marketing Mastermind for Newborn Photographers, but there is no doubt that they are becoming increasingly popular among Newborn Photographers.

While there are great courses available to get started with Facebook Ads, learning to use them effectively to get bookings for Newborn and Cake Smash sessions takes experience, patience and knowledge of the mechanics of advertising.

To help you get started, or improve your ads, here are the 5 most common mistakes I see photographers doing with Facebook Ads.

1 – Wrong Targeting (including Lookalike audiences)

Facebook knows more about your clients than you do, trust me.

With relatively new accounts, trying to force Facebook to only target those you believe are your “ideal clients” can do more harm than good – as it restricts the domain “the algorithm” is operating on.

Especially with Custom and Lookalike audiences, if your numbers are low (small following, not posting regularly, not done much advertising in the past) you risk seeing high advertising costs and not very good results.

2 – Ads Don’t Sell

Think about it this way: even when your ads are set to bring direct sales (for example an ad that links to a booking page) they are not the only element of your “funnel”.

At the very least, you have:

  • The product you are selling (is there enough demand? Have you sold it before)
  • Its pricing (not everything can be sold with an immediate profit via ads)
  • The product page, landing page or your own process for dealing with leads
  • The ad itself, with its campaign objective, targeting, copy, images

Each element contributes to your “conversion rate”, and I have seen so many times photographers saying their “ads don’t work” when the problem was somewhere else in the process.

3 – Wrong copy

An ad is not a post.

I see so often ads that look and sound like a post, written thinking that the person on the other side:

  • Knows exactly what you are talking about and how your session works
  • Knows you
  • Will stop everything they are doing and sit down to read your ad in detail

Copy that works should answer at least 3 questions:

Who should be reading?

What is in it for them (yes, because nobody wakes up in the morning thinking “uh, I can’t wait to read another ad so I can spend more money!)?

How can they get it (a call to action)

4 – Not tracking the difference between your Instagram and Facebook ads

There is a massive difference in advertising results between Facebook and Instagram, so when advertising on both platforms you should monitor very closely how your budget is being spent, and the results you are getting from each.

5 – Trying to convert leads from ads like you convert your website enquiries

This is also something I see quite often, not adapting the enquiry workflow to take into account where your leads are coming from.

You see, the biggest advantage of social media advertising is that you can reach potential clients before they start researching on their own – and before your competitors reach them. So by default, some of the leads you get will be colder (some also will find out that actually what you offer is not for them) and less informed about how newborn sessions, cake smashes or any other photoshoot works.

They will also spend a little time researching other options (spoiler alert: your other clients do exactly the same, you just don’t see it!) so they will need more nurturing.

As I always say to my clients, if you are not prepared to deal with this…. ads are not for you!

3 tips in this sense:

  • Don’t do Messenger ads and then immediately ask people for their email address when they contact you. The advantage of Messenger is the immediacy of the interaction, remove that and you might as well use a different campaign objective
  • Send out a standard reply to enquiry email, which is the same one you use for your website enquiries and it is not tweaked for the ad campaign you are running
  • Follow up on your leads (if you don’t, someone else will)

Last, but not least…

Possibly the most important thing to remember is that advertising and marketing, exactly like photography are a craft – that requires knowledge, experience and training.

While I always encourage photographers to try Facebook Ads, only do so if you are willing to spend time and money to learn how to make them work for you.

If you expect things to work overnight… chances are you will be disappointed and end up feeling frustrated.

Feeling on the brink of burnout? Read our guide “Photographers on the brink of burnout

Thinking about our Marketing Mentoring programme? Read this first

Most of the times, all you need to do for your ads to work is to let

5 years ago, when I took my first photography client on board, I felt like I was going back in time.

So many tools and strategies that were well known and widely used in other industries were not only unknown to photographers but were also rejected and dismissed whenever I mentioned them in photography groups (and my gratitude goes to Maddy Rogers for trusting my words before anyone else).

Despite my frustration, I knew those strategies were going to be very much present in the future of this industry… and I could see that from my clients’ results.

My “marketing life” was so easy back then.

Then, 2020 and lockdown arrived… and I remember waking up the morning after the announcement more determined than ever to keep everybody focused, to help everybody be ready for the next steps.

The moment lockdown began, I knew marketing would change forever and I wrote so everywhere.

I knew social media and ads were the easiest and fastest go-to tool for businesses to sell, so I knew “fast” marketing would become harder.

I also knew that there was no “going back to normal” because those unable to work due to restrictions would want (and need) to catch up when reopening.

Of course, what I could not foresee were a war and recession and so here we are, 5 years later, surrounded by trainers and photographers who have now discovered the tools and techniques my clients have been using for years.

Am I worried?

No, because to me, that is the past of marketing. That age is gone forever, and photography is not the first industry going through a shift of this magnitude.

That’s why my priority for the last 6 months has been defining what’s needed for us all to succeed in the next 5 years.

There has not been a day where my brain has not been processing and observing, and then processing some more.

Feedback from photographers, other coaches, and trainers, mixed with my own perception and experience.

And now things are clear.

There are four things needed for us to stay sane, ahead of others and profitable in the next 5 years:

1 – More unique and new FAST strategies (and yes, this includes social media and ads)

With so many walking on the path we have paved, the “usual” won’t keep working forever.

And for sure, you don’t want to end up fighting over a £20 session fee with every photographer around you.

This is why the Marketing Mastermind will always be a big part of the coaching.

The Marketing Mastermind for Newborn Photographers is a 1-to-1 marketing coaching with 3 unique characteristics:

  1. It offers hands-on help to get you bookings. From advertising to writing posts and landing pages, we do the work together
  2. It is 100% tailored to your studio. We don’t copy and paste strategies because we know that every business is different.
  3. It uses marketing that feels good. No pressuring, pushing people, no dancing in front of your phone just because “reels are the future”.

2 – The ability to connect with our clients on a deeper level 

… trust me – we are all fed up with being sold stuff every moment of every day.

I see it from data, that “tricks” don’t work anymore. Our clients know that if they spend enough time looking around, they will find amazing quality at an amazing price.

So, if you think what makes you unique is either of these things… we have a problem.

Connecting with clients simply means better, more meaningful content that truly shows your clients who you are.

Why? Because that makes you irreplaceable.

But I know creating great content is not easy, especially when writing is involved, and that is why we are introducing “Pathway to Creation: Creative Marketing for Photographers.”

This is all about using your creativity, and photography, to create meaningful marketing content.

We’ll develop creative photography projects, visuals and any format of media that comes naturally to you and we’ll bring it to life for your audience to see.

I won’t be alone in this journey, you will be helped by other coaches, trainers and our partner labs.

3 – Tired yet? Time for a story

When I was in school PE for girls was volleyball. Every week.

Now, if you have ever met me in person, you know there is not one cell in my body engineered for that. Not one, and I don’t even like it.

So, every week was a nightmare, every Tuesday I would try to escape the torture. A whole hour of feeling inadequate and hating it all. Just let me do something else, ANYTHING.

But no, you’re a girl, volleyball it is.

That story, and many more similar ones, are what life feels like if you are not engineered for the mainstream.

And if you enjoy working with me… you are not.

Whether it’s “too short,” too tall, too big, too sensitive, overthinking, too shy, or too much of an introvert.

That’s why alternative views, paths, and ways of doing business matter so much to me, and why the world needs them so desperately now.

But here’s the thing:

No matter how good and needed these “alternative paths” are, if the world doesn’t know about them, if they are not sustainable (mentally and financially) for the ones carving them they cease to exist.

That’s why I am introducing The Shift: Conscious Business for Newborn Photographers.

From how to deal with business when you are highly sensitive to boundaries and kinder, warmer strategies to convert clients… The Shift combines my marketing background and experience as a certified Human Factors Trainer.

4 – And now something most of you already know, the Perfect Pricing Blueprint.

This, too, is here to stay and it continues to help photographers get more conversions and sell MORE without pushing and pressuring people.

So, there you have it, welcome to Grow Your Photography Studio v2!

Let’s be honest: hating Facebook is pretty easy, these days.

Like it or hate it, social media is an essential part of our marketing and business… and losing an account (or even worse, a Business Page) is definitely not an experience you want to go through. Trust me.

So while hacking attempt (and successes) are multiplying, I thought I would record 3 quick video to show you 3 essential steps to integrate in your security routine.

(And if you don’t have one… the best time to start is right now.)

I have been hacked! What do I do?

Here is a step by step process you can follow. Please note: this is not guaranteed to work, and your ability to act fast is essential.

IMPORTANT: In order to help as many people as possible, this guide refers to users who are not in Facebook Business Manager – but remember: operating from within Business Manager will give you the best chances of stopping the attack and recovering your page. Not working via Business Manager also means that you cannot monitor your Facebook Ad Accounts once your profile has been hacked.

  1. Ask your second admin to remove you immediately from your own page
  • From your News Feed, click Pages in the left menu.
  • Go to your Page and click Page Settings in the bottom left.
  • Click Page Roles in the left column.
  • Click Edit next to the person you want to remove, and then click Remove.
  • Click Confirm. You may need to enter your password.

Watch how to:

2. Block your credit card and remove Facebook from your Paypal’s billing agreements https://www.paypal.com/uk/smarthelp/article/how-do-i-cancel-a-billing-agreement-faq2254

Remember that ad accounts are automatically created for you when you open your page/profile, and if you have ever boosted a post you will have a payment method associated to your account.

3. While you do this, ask your second admin to open a support ticket by clicking on the “?” icon on the bottom left corner of your Business Suite

Make sure you note down the Case ID that’s given to you.


Q: How often should I change my password?

A: Minimum once a month, and remember to use a unique password (not used in other accounts)

Q: Should I create a second personal Facebook account and add myself as an admin to my page?

A: No. This violates FB policies (read here https://www.facebook.com/help/975828035803295) and, if flagged, will cause your assets to be suspended (this includes your ad accounts and Facebook Page)

Q: Who should I add as a secondary admin to my page?

A: Treat your social media and Google accounts as if they were a debit card or bank account.

Q: Is it safe to use options like “Login with Facebook” on “Login with Google” on websites and apps?

A: No. Well, it should but with each authorised login the likelihood of your username and password being discovered and used increases. In addition to this, when you use the “Login with [x]” option, you are asked to authorise the website/platform/app you are trying to use to access your Facebook/Google profile. That authorisation can be revoked, but it is a manual process that requires a few steps… so better avoid!

Christmas Minis are quick and easy sessions that should sell themselves, right?

Not necessarily, especially this year.

With so many newborn photographers now doing Christmas minis using a very similar pricing/formula, competition is stronger than ever.

In addition to this, almost nothing these days can be sold without a solid marketing plan and without investing enough time and resources, especially if you are not already well established and can count on a solid client base.


Ok, first of all… you are not alone.

Also, there is still time.

So if you have not sold out your Christmas mini sessions do not despair, but keep in mind these 3 simple “rules”:

1 – Think out of the box

Christmas Minis (like most minis) are a real challenge when it comes to marketing to a new, colder, audience. Since your profit is lower than full sessions, you need to find strategies that will help you reach as many people as possible… for very little money, or for free.

For this reason, in our checklist, we will include some unusual advertising and marketing strategies that we would not necessarily use to get bookings for your newborn sessions

2 – Don’t alienate your audience

Christmas mini sessions

We get it, you really want this to work.

However, in a couple of months this will be over, and you’ll be back to bumps, babies and newborns… so please try not to overwhelm your audience with Christmas images and posts – especially since it’s still September!

Remember that posting content your audience doesn’t like will affect your reach because Facebook and Instagram simply will not show your content to users who have not engaged with you in a while.

So if you see low (or lower than usual) engagement on your Christmas posts, do yourself a favour and limit the number of themed posts. Instead, plan on using some ads (again, read our checklist for low-budget ideas)

3 – Think about your business as a whole

Especially if you have little time to spend on promoting your studio, make sure you are not only focusing on your Christmas Minis!

If you are far from your goal (sessions you want to sell), or have not even started selling them, please consider whether you can even afford to keep going. Is it worth investing more time and resources in promoting mini sessions?

In our blog post about biases we have discussed The Sunk Cost Fallacy, our tendency to honour already spent resources: we are more likely to continue with a project if we have already invested a lot of money, time, or effort in it, even when continuing is not the best thing to do.


So here we go, our list is below and also available as a free download here (printable).

❑ Email your database of clients (need a mailing platform for this? Check out our list of Essential Marketing Tools for Newborn Photographers). If your list of clients includes less than 150 people, you’ll want to plan for some extra promo (for example ads).

❑ Make a list of your best 10-15 clients (with children in the right age range for your minis) and mail them a personal invitation (yes, by post!) or call them. Why? Because it’s personal.

❑ Consider creating a lead magnet to help you gather some new, qualified, leads. A lead magnet is a piece of content that you make available on your website for free and that people can download by giving you their email address.

Of course, you want your lead magnet to be Christmas themed and targeted at your audience.

Ideas are: a PDF template for a letter to Santa, a template for Christmas cards or other themed templates, etc.

The process you want to follow is simple: create a blog post to describe your lead magnet and include a mini form (only requiring name and email address). Ask visitors to fill out the form if they want to receive your file and, when you receive their contact information… well, email them the content with a little reminder of your Christmas Minis (and a few images!). All tools needed for this process are included in our Essential Marketing Tools for Newborn Photographers.

Your lead magnet could be promoted using a Traffic ad, for as little as £2 a day – or could even just be promoted with a boost on your Facebook page.

❑ Create a Facebook event with the goal of using it for Facebook Ads. Ads for events are not the best ads for conversions but you will be able to run them for as little as £1 a day.

Remember: you can’t message directly people who mark themselves as “Going” to your event, but they will read your updates on the event page.

❑ Create an Engagement Facebook ad for one of your organic Facebook posts. As mentioned above, we choose these ads over Conversions (which are the best ads for bookings and sales) to contain costs – since your margin on minis is much smaller than for newborn sessions.

Check out this video to see where to find Engagement/Event ads.

❑ If you don’t have at least 2k followers on each of your Facebook and Instagram profiles, and your database of clients is fairly small (less than 100 contacts) consider partnering with another local business with a stronger online presence.

❑ Create a promo video that you can use on social media – Animoto offers a few great templates in this sense, but you can use almost any tool.

Don’t forget to check these tips for creating promo videos for your studio (source: Facebook).

❑ If you have not done a model call, consider doing one and boosting the post to your local audience – don’t forget to use engagement as a goal for your boost. Also, don’t forget to record some behind the scenes footage (and take a few shots) that you can use for Instagram reels and social media in general

Imagine this: it’s Monday morning and you are sipping coffee or tea sitting in your studio… and waiting for your Facebook Photography business page to load.

So you wait, and wait, until you realise you can’t actually login.

And this time is not because you’ve been logged out and can’t remember the password, it’s because you have been banned.

Your Photography business page, ad account, everything is gone. In a panic, you login to your email to find a message from Facebook that explains you have violated the Community Standards and are not allowed on the platform.

For me, this is the stuff nightmares are made of – regardless of how many leads I can get from other platforms, I don’t want to lose the ability for my business to be represented on a platform with almost 3 billion users.

Like it or hate it, for most of us our social media pages have become some of the most important assets in our business.

But do you really know everything there is to know about keeping your Facebook Photography business page safe?

This post gives you a few basic steps that you should implement to ensure you comply with Facebook policies and add layers of redundancy to your pages.


Yes, your personal profile and business pages are connected by default, but adding a second administrator means you will still have a way of managing your Photography business page if you can’t access your personal profile.

This could happen for several reasons: you might be hacked, your profile might be suspended, etc. etc.

You can add administrators from the Page Roles section in Settings, this video shows you how.

Note: needless to say, choose someone you truly trust and that would be happy to let you use their profile to access your page!


No. Having two Facebook profiles goes against the platform’s policies and might result in your accounts being banned.

Now I know you might be thinking “Ok this is boring and complicated, I don’t need any of this and Facebook sucks anyway!”. 

I hear you. Our lives are already busy enough and “too much time” is definitely not one of our problems.

But here’s the thing, remember when you had to deal with that annoying client who was demanding to see your RAW files and you thought to yourself “my business my rules, I am not giving my unedited files to anyone?”.

Google, Facebook, Instagram… They also are businesses and they also enforce a “my business, my rules” policy.

So sure, you can ignore all of this and any of these platform’s policies… but you do so at your own peril!
