If you’re an aspiring photographer, there are several genres worth exploring as you determine the professional niche you’d most like to join. From landscapes and travel to portraiture and photojournalism, there are plenty of fields where you might find yourself working one day.

Some artists are particularly drawn to fields such as nature photography specifically because of the solitary nature of the work. If you happen to choose something like weddings or portraiture however, you are going to be spending a great deal of time working directly with clients. Considering this, interpersonal skills are going to be a crucial element of your success (or lack thereof) in the business. That being said, we thought it might be helpful to share a simple list of “what not to do’s” when it comes to your behavior around clients.

When it comes to family photo shoots, specifically those involving children, time commitment can be a tricky thing to navigate. We’re most specifically talking about the length of the session here. Any seasoned family photographer will tell you how stressful and complicated it can be to complete an hour long shoot when a toddler throws an inconsolable tantrum 30 minutes in.

Be sure to have a very candid conversation with your clients about what they would like to do if this situation arises. Some families are absolutely relieved when a photographer is willing to end a session early. Just like you have made a time commitment to them, they often feel like they’ve similarly made one to you. They might feel bad or embarrassed asking to cut the session short, knowing you’ve set aside time in your schedule for them. So just make sure to be clear about expectations. What you should not do is sit there without having spoken on a game plan for this situation, billing for your full hour while the parents try to calm a screaming child as the clock runs out on their session.
