Photography Mini-Session Form Created with Google Docs

By:  Kristina Rust Photography

Last spring I held a Wine Tasting & Portrait Party.  I talked about it a lot on my own business blog here and here.

In a nutshell, it was SUPER fun and my guests and I had a fabulous time.  I photographed 17 women at a beautiful winery located near my home (one of the perks of living in Northern California).   I have to say that having a glass of wine before getting your headshot taken is a great way to feel relaxed and at ease in front of the camera.  :)

Anyway, I created a sign up form using Google Docs which worked out great and I thought I'd share it with you.  I was able to link this form to my invitation, embed it it in blog posts and share the form online, making it very easy for guests to sign up.  And the best part is, it is free!  Oh and when you use Google Docs, a response spreadsheet is automatically set up for you.

Here is the form I created....

To create a form like this, all you have to do log into your Google account and go to drive.google.com.  Next, click Create (located on the left hand side) and then choose Form. From there it is pretty easy. You can choose different options in terms of the type of questions, i.e. multiple choice, text, paragraph text etc. Once you've finished creating it, you can share the link or embed the form (like I did above) using iFrame. I am also going to use Google Docs to create a model release to send out to my families. Let me know if you try it and how you decide to use it.
