Is it just me  thinking too deep??  In the last few days, I have had 4 bookings for family/kids shoots and having sat in studio waiting!!! and waiting, they do not show?  These were all confirmed the day before and all looking forward to coming..

Is it me, or does anyone else get this happen to them??

I've never had a family just not turn up in the last 7 years. It might be worth digging deeper, 4 is a lot.

Having just googled icon photography your site doesn't come up.
How would new clients (who have bookings) search for your address etc on the day before their booking. By Icon, your name? (sorry don't know what that is).
If you are relying on them knowing your website is Icon-photos.com I'd suggest that could be a problem...

I teach bondage workshops: lots of folk sign up, and are ever so enthusiastic, and we exchange detailed emails about it all. But numbers usually drop by 25-30% when I send out requests for payment!

I used to do some family stuff & had to start taking a deposit because so many just wouldn't turn up.
There is a chance that everything I just said is complete bollocks
