Clever products that shine with creativity help show clients that your profession is rooted in art. Today's fan share from Dana Laymon Photography is a great example! Dana says, "I simply plugged the images into the Visual Poetry Accordion Album template in Photoshop where the images holders were in the design. Then I uploaded and ordered the album. It's so simple and the design is so modern. I love that you get multiple designs with this template and they can all be edited to fit your brand. It also works seamlessly with most vendors that offer this product. All you have to do is upload it! I'm not a designer so it's nice to have the hard work done for you! My clients love these. They're just small enough that they're perfect for a purse or small gift. I'll surprise my clients with one of these if they purchase a larger album. Then they want to order more as gifts for their family!"

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.
