Are you sending lots of docs, 1) out of habit, or 2) because “the client expects it”?
Ok, 1) Break the habit before it breaks you, and 2) They don’t, ask them if you don’t believe me. They expect to have a great project delivered on time and on budget by a kick-a** professional team that inspire them and make them do a better job. That’s what they want, not docs!
Sometimes docs are used as a wall to hide behind, a way to “process the process” rather than actually doing the work.
Send only what they need. Then do the work. Everybody wins, everybody is happy.
