I frequently get questions about Facebook sneaks and I’d like to share more info on how to get them, and what they are. The Facebook sneaks are a way for you to see your images sooner and to share with friends and family. I only start posting your sneaks after I receive a signed model release from both parents for all family members that were present at the session. I will post one of my favorite images from your session for 5 days (1 each day) and if I get a lot of comments and likes, I will post more photos, a grand finale, or blog as a thank you. So, you win by getting to see more photos and I win by getting the exposure to my Facebook page. I appreciate the traffic directly to the page, so I ask that you like the image and tag yourself. I also love reading the comments, so tagging yourself encourages your friends and family to comment and then it makes my day to read the nice things people are saying about your photographs. I ask that you do not crop my logo out of the FB pictures and printing of these is not allowed because they are intended for online viewing only. In fact, I do not provide a print release for Facebook sneaks and they are such low resolution that the prints will look horribly pixelated.
There is a method to my madness for posting sneaks. Day 1 is always my second favorite image. Its hard to decide sometimes, but I really like to start your sneaks off with a strong image:
For Sneak 2 I usually mix it up between family pictures, images of mom with baby, dad with baby, sibling pictures.
For the final image, I save the best for last! It’s always my top favorite from your session. I know it’s hard to wait each day to see sneaks, but it’s worth the wait. In the digital age we live in, there are so few suprises left. So, I only torture you for a little while, but its fun to wake up to a beautiful image of your perfect baby!
