Today's fan share comes from Jenni Ashton of Ulysses Photography. She writes, "I absolutely love the Look Book, and so do our clients. Because I adore poring over catalogs myself, I had always wanted to create a catalog to showcase our products, but the thought of such a huge project was daunting. The Look Book Basic template was absolutely perfect for us ... beautifully designed and simple to use. We easily adjusted the wording and inserted our photos. We created one for engagements and one for portraits, making the selling process so much simpler. The feedback from our clients has been tremendous, and they come ready to order after viewing our Look Book. One client loved the Look Book so much, they wanted to order a copy to keep! :) Thank you for creating such wonderful selling tools!"
Thanks for the great share, Jenni....we love that you included the Sweet 16 Fleur in your Look Book (in the first image)! Enjoy your $75 shopping spree on us~
I secretly bought a mail-order 35mm camera when I was 15, and took lots of ordinary photos of animals and nature for several years. Although I majored in art and studied photography in college, my career started in marketing and advertising, from the client service end. Then I had the most beautiful baby, found my old camera and realized how much I love photographing people.
Hi! Tell us a little bit about yourself. What was your road like to becoming a photographer?
Hello! I am a portrait photographer based south of Boston, MA. My passion is capturing mothers and their growing families. Maternity and newborn portraits are the foundation of my business, and I also capture baby milestones, children, and families. Fun fact: I returned the diamond earrings my husband bought me for our first Christmas as a married couple to buy a digital camera.
When I was in college, I had a friend who was a professional photographer. The first time I went to her home, I walked in to find stunning photographs of her children on the walls.
There was a huge canvas in their living room and a creative photo display in the main hallway. I remember being so moved by the beauty of those images, thinking to myself, “I want to create images like this!” I bought myself a DSLR as a graduation present, learned photography from online courses and started my photography business about a year later.
