When your business is running well – and it hopefully is – it is important to stay well organized to keep on track with everything you have to do on a job. There are so many important things not to forget: Did I edit the caption for the whole shoot? Has the client received the link for the online proof gallery? Did I send them the CD of the engagement session? Did I archive the images? etc.
I invested half an hour today and created a job checklist. So I don’t forget any task I have to do for an engagement session or a wedding. I always know what already has been done and what is still left to do. I use a Word document with checkboxes, very easy. I guess some photographers go with an Excel sheet or use online tools. It doesn’t matter, take what is the best and easiest for you.
