If you haven't yet gotten the call, you surely will at some point. Someone's beloved pet is nearing the end of his life; maybe they've just received a terminal diagnosis. You agree to a portrait session, hang up the phone…and panic. How on earth will you make it through such an emotionally charged session?
Grief-recovery specialist Wendy Sloneker is my guest on this week's episode. Drawing on her 40 years of experience in the field, Wendy offers sage advice on showing up for your clients during their most difficult hours.
What To Listen For:
- Questions and listening techniques to connect empathetically with clients
- Deep thoughts on accepting money for your end-of-life sessions
- How to handle the sales session if a pet has already passed
- Specific products to offer pet parents from these shoots
