If you've done your job right in the portrait session, the editing process will go much more smoothly. Your goal is to get the number of images in your session down to a reasonable number as quickly as you can. You want to take the least amount of time possible, while still making the images look beautiful. Don't make them perfect! You don't know if your client is going to buy them yet, so don't spend a ton of your time retouching them. Get the images to a point where they look nice enough to present, and you will let your clients know in the presentation and ordering appointment that any images that they order will be fully retouched to the level of the images displayed in your studio.

Don't show duplicate poses. It will just slow down your presentation appointment. Your client is hiring you for your expertise, so you need to make the decisions about which images are best. This will reduce overwhelm for your client, and make the presentation appointment go much more smoothly.
