Amazing images, zero stress: The many benefits of church directory photography events

A new church directory is a wonderful resource that showcases your amazing church community, including staff, families and groups. It provides loads of information in a highly organized manner, highlighting the people and activities that make your church so special.

Hosting a directory event with Lifetouch gives you access to a professional, proven process for creating a high-quality directory, plus loads of complementary extras. This means there's no stress to you or your families. Thousands of churches and community organizations have worked with Lifetouch and loved the results, not to mention the many benefits.

Free church directories

A classic printed directory provides a keepsake for families that includes activity pages that highlight your stories and ministries at no cost. Additionally, all members can access a digital version of the directory, providing a modern complement to the traditional printed directory everyone loves. The directory is a great resource and outreach tool for church staff, too. What's more, these images are available for churches to update your CMS (church management software).

Superior support

Planning a directory photography event might seem overwhelming to think about. However, when you work with Lifetouch, you're never alone. Every church receives one-on-one service from friendly and dedicated support staff and everything they need to organize, advertise and run a photography event. From free promotional materials to expert photographers who will run a smooth photography day, you'll be in good hands, so there's no need to worry or stress.

Beautiful design

With Lifetouch you know you'll be getting beautiful designs that reflect the personality and values of your church. If you choose to include activity pages with a classic directory, you'll get free access to StoryBuilder software so a volunteer can lay out those pages quickly and easily. Of course, you can also submit your own design, if desired. Remember, Lifetouch is always available to help every step of the way.

Family bonuses

To further encourage families to attend photography events, Lifetouch provides several valuable extras for free. First, every family receives a complimentary 8x10 professional photograph. That means whether it's an individual, couple or family, each session results in a free printed photograph. This is in addition to receiving a printed directory to keep at home. Families also receive a $10 coupon if they choose to order additional photography.

Giving back

As a church, there are causes that are close to your members' hearts. Whether it's a mission trip, a food drive or other effort, you are always looking for ways to give back. Fortunately, Lifetouch offers a variety of initiatives to partner with the churches we serve, including the Feed the Need program.
