Onyx Session Planning Guide Template


Uplevel your client experience with the Session Planning Guide Template from the Onyx Collection. The Onyx Collection features a design style that is clean, modern, and editorial, complemented with oval shapes.

As a Photographer and Brand + Web Designer with years of experience in this industry, we set out to create expertly designed templates that make you AND your clients' lives easier. These templates keep your brand at the forefront - Canva allows for you to easily customize everything to your existing brand (or, they are beautifully designed on their own, with no need for customization if you don't already have an established brand identity!), include PDFs with full instructions + prompts that will help you write your own personalized copy that matches your brand voice, and come with a full video course to guide you through the entire process - from opening the document through holding the final, printed product in your hands.

Session Planning Guide


A guide that helps to share your expert knowledge and intentions with any of your clients, no matter the type of session. With a combined two decades in the industry, we've made sure that any questions your clients may have for their photographer or videographer will be answered - without ever writing a single email. This 20 page guide template includes sections ranging from outfit prep to posing, and will ensure that your clients feel confident and prepared before their session

"I have three children, a working farm and a packed wedding schedule, leaving minimal time for much else, let alone time to refresh and redesign my client materials every year. Dawn and Maggie’s templates allowed me to create 3 beautiful, seperate guides in Canva in a period of an hour. I’m the type of person that gets overwhelmed by too many options, so while Canva is an easy to use platform, the multitude of choices is something that always stopped me from completing projects. So grateful for these templates that minimized the decision making, allowed me to quickly input photos and information and are gorgeous for my clients.  Love love love."

"Dawn & Maggie’s guide templates are an absolute game changer! As someone who is not great with graphic design and using software like InDesign, these templates are a breath of fresh air. They are extremely easy to use and easy to make your own. In my business, client guides are something I’ve always wanted to create but I’ve always been pretty intimidated by the time it would take to really get these where I would want to be. With Dawn & Maggie’s guide templates, I was able to make multiple guides in no time at all. If you’re feeling overwhelmed with trying to create your own guides or just want to take your guides to the next level, I highly recommend these templates!"
