Booking clients. Going on shoots. Invoicing. Processing photos. Photographers have plenty to do without thinking about sales and marketing. For many, it’s a challenge to continually offer innovative solutions to clients. That’s why I started Magazine Mama.

Being a professional photographer myself for over 10 years, my goal is to provide other photographers with marketing materials and products that they could customize with their own company name and logo. I use my experience in photography and my background in publishing to develop new and exciting products for photographers.

One of my latest magazine templates is the Newborns Welcome Guide. It has both an elegant and clean design. There is space to showcase several images. You can display a horizontal image across two pages for a bigger impact. The neutral and subdued color palette portrays a dreamy and peaceful feeling. The shapes, text, colors and fonts can be adjusted to match your studio branding. This template comes with three pre-written text sections & articles: welcome text, “Preparing for Your Newborn Session”, and “Capturing the Precious Moments of Baby’s First Year.”
