ARE YOU FEELING TIRED, FRUSTRATED OR OVERWHELMED?

MAYBE YOU FEEL LIKE THERE ARE JUST NEVER ENOUGH HOURS IN THE DAY?

STARTING AND BUILDING A NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS

WAS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE THIS TOUGH...

So are you ready to build a profitable

and sustainable newborn photography

business that you absolutely love...

...and that serves your dream lifestyle?

 you totally can...

 

...with the right action steps, tools, marketing strategy and a little help in the right direction. 

Maybe you started your own photography business because you dreamed of freedom,

financial stability and more time with your family. 

 

But instead you might feel a bit lost 

or unsure of yourself and how to make your business work...

​I've been there! Let me tell you my story...

When I set out to start my own newborn photography business five years ago, it was something I felt I had a calling to do; even though I had never professionally photographed a baby before! I had however, studied film photography in 1997 and had always used it as a value-added service to my publicity, marketing and branding clients in my PR and marketing business, SimplyBuzz. 

Like many of you, I had recently become a mother when I fell in love with capturing every tiny, precious detail. Sadly, my journey into motherhood was a long and bumpy one... and it changed me forever!

Finding my way back into photography was a creative outlet and a healing journey for me after my losses. I kind of fell in to it when I needed it most. And all I knew was that I wanted to capture treasured memories and create beautiful wall art and keepsake albums of these gorgeous, fleeting moments - for every family that I could. I wanted to give them the gift of cherishing their loved ones forever and preserving their memories! 

I had jumped in the deep end. I immersed myself into everything newborn photography... from newborn safety, posing and wrapping, hands-on workshops, Creative Live classes, online training and education - you name it! I invested thousands of dollars into learning from the some of the worlds best and most renowned and well-loved industry leaders.

Like many of you here, I knew I had a gift to share with the world, and with my strong, experienced publicity, branding and marketing background (and a lot of determination), I was adamant to create a thriving, profitable business that supported my lifestyle dreams and that would help me stand out in a saturated market - while working from home and raising my children. And I did. Within two years I had established a steady stream of clients - 99.9% of which shared my love for creating beautiful art work and fine art prints. 

 

And it all began by simply putting myself out there, knowing what I wanted and tackling it head on, one day at a time. I started with photographing expecting family and friends and then their newborn babies... and then their friends, and before long, the friends of the friends were booking me too!

The truth was, I never wanted to go back to

working full time, after my babies...

I never actually dreamed of becoming an entrepreneur or starting my own businesses... It's something I originally fell into in 2006, out of necessity because I was exhausted, working 24/7, for very little financial reward and not much thanks. I had a burning desire to be more, make more and to give more. And I always wanted to create an impact on the world around me.

I didn’t know how it was all going to come together when my entrepreneurial journey began. I just knew there was no other option. 

maybe you’ve felt the same way?

WHY AM I SHARING ALL OF THIS WITH YOU?

BECAUSE IF IT'S POSSIBLE FOR ME, IT'S POSSIBLE FOR YOU.

You can create the business and the life that you want for yourself while serving your client's needs.

Decide what you want and then take the necessary steps in order to transform,

evolve and step into who you want to become... both in your life and business.

 

The extraordinary life you dream of is 100% possible. You just need to find complete clarity and confidence

in who you are, what you want and why you do what you do, and then take action. Everyday!

There is a way to make being a mom while having a career and building a business work!

it's your time to shine!
