    Is there an app or questionnaire you give new clients before you start working for them?

    What genre of photography are you referring to?
    Retail? • Portraiture? Fine Art? Weddings?
    Commercial?

    Mainly Weddings, Family/Newborn and Commercial. Yes, talking happens before each job. But it seems like they know more specifically what they want when they're looking at the photos from the shoot. Make sense?

    Naturally. They have now been educated as to what is possible. That is nothing new. Most customers have no idea what they want in specific terms, but only generally. There is an opportunity to educate your clients. Show them some examples of what you can do. Then talk specifics, such as lighting, venue, poses, etc. It's wide open out there.

    So with regard to the specifics (lighting, venue, poses, etc), at what point do you feel confident that you have the info you need to execute and what information did you pull from the client that got you there?
