To emphasize how easy this product is to customize (if at all!) and send off to clients, this product was launched less than a week ago and we already have a fan share! Leesia of Leesia Teh Photography shares, "To be as green as possible, all of my guides are delivered in electronic PDF form unless the client requests paper copies. The Selling A Showpiece Portrait Guide already uses the same font for my other brochures, so all I had to do was add some images and a branding touch with the paw prints on the page of text. I also wanted to show vertical and horizontal pieces, so I combined both the digital copy layout and print layout into the PDF. This guide was a perfect addition to the information my clients receive and it was a cinch to customize the files - this was done and ready to go in less than a day! Anything that helps a client visualize is essential for product sales. Since I work from home and don't show anything in a studio or showroom, I've been looking for a way to show clients relative sizes without having to lug around huge prints and canvases. This is perfect. Within a day of getting this ready, I had a client who lives two hours away ask for sizing help - and I had the perfect guide to send her!"

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.
