How did you get started doing this type of work?
I was one of those mom's that started after having a baby, however I didn't really pick up my first DSLR until my daughter was 13 months old. I spent countless hours online researching how to shoot in manual and I met so many amazing people along the way. I lost all of my photos from when I was a baby to about 5 years so I don't really remember much. I want my daughter to have some great photos of herself that she can share with her kids, her kid's kids, and so on. It is so important to me that she has these and I feel so blessed to be able to do this for others.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I provide stylized shoots as well as lifestyle shoots for your newborn/infant. I also will come to you in the comfort of your own home after delivering your child as I know recovery can take some time.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Don't hire someone based on price. I believe too many people out there hire someone to document the most important milestone's of their lives (as well as their child's life) based on a number. Try to look for quality as well as style. It's not at all uncommon to save up for photos just as you would to purchase a car.
