What makes your product/service unique? Our focus is helping photographers be successful by providing them with marketing materials and workshop curriculum that they can use to make additional income during the off-seasons.
Tell us how your product/business came about: The idea for Magazine Mama came about when I decided to combine my love for photography with my love for publishing. At the time I was publishing two local wedding guides and had been photographing weddings for 10 years, so it seemed like a natural transition. The curriculum side of the business was started by my husband who is also a photographer. He used to be a teacher in Japan (which is where we met and got married), so he combined his teaching background with his love for photography.
What is your most popular product/service? Our most popular products are a toss up between the wedding magazine template and our teaching curriculums. My personal favorite is our Basic Digital Photography Curriculum for Kids. By the way, if you haven’t downloaded the freebie on the website you can do so here:http://www.magazinemama.com/
Today's Eye Candy come from Jean Smith of Jean Smith Photography. This session is amazing. The emotion and interaction you can feel from this family is so fabulous. It reminds me how priceless family portraits are! Family Season is soon approaching and we will all be up to our eyeballs in shooting and editing so many precious moments!
Jean is an on location photographer living in New Hudson, Michigan with her husband and four little boys. She loves all “genres” of people and therefore photographs them all…babies, kids, high school seniors, and couples. She likes to consider herself a natural light photographer, but madly loves incorporating off camera flash into her work as well. Jean is incredibly passionate about photography and teaching others. She, along with her rad husband, Travis, teach photography workshops in Michigan and around the country.
