Tips for Photographers {Check Your Junk Mail}

A couple of weeks ago I attended the Jasmine Star thFix.  You can read my review of it here.  While there I met the sweetest husband wife photography team and snapped a picture of them with Jasmine’s husband JD.  A couple of days later I emailed the picture to them and never heard back.  Another couple of days goes by and I mention on FB that I emailed them the picture.  Amy says she never received the email and asked if I could email it again.  I re-send the email and again I hear nothing back.  Amy and I run into each other at another workshop and she still doesn’t have the image.

And then it happens…she finds it in her junk mail.  No big deal right?  Guess what else is in her junk mail…4 wedding inquiries and a couple of portrait inquiries!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HUGE deal now!!

I had the exact same thing happen to me last November.  4 inquires went directly to my junk mail and I didn’t realize it until it was too late.  It was like a giant sucker punch in the gut!  Since then, I keep a close eye on my junk mail.  Most of the time it’s just offers to help certain body parts “grow” (wink-wink),  but I still check it EVERY day.

Kari Jeanne When I heard this story from Amy my heart actually hurt for her – totally one of our worst nightmares! Thank you for sharing – this can definitely happen to anyone!!
