Holiday gifts can be a great way to let clients know you appreciate them while also generating business. Simone of Fotografie Simone Lauber shares, "I used the Essential Calendar Collection and created flyers for 2016 with my name and website at the bottom. I printed 1000 pieces and now distribute these in our region for business partners in the wedding industry. I also added a free download on my homepage to generate lots of traffic to my website and I offer my customers a free 2016 calendar with their session. It's an inexpensive, nice giveaway for my clients and a great motivator for them to book a session.
I love the layouts for the calendars. It's so easy to create wonderful things with them and I've received only positive feedback. Some customers said they want to frame the calendar and put it on their desk or shelf."

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.
