    This is a very useful breakout.

    Finding new clients can be hard, but converting clients into repeating client will insure a steady income, and is not that hard if you implement Maggie’s suggestions. Included is a 118 page pdf packed with great information and beautiful imagery. The pdf consists of several parts covering different stages, with suggestions on preparation, location, equipment, what to bring, poses etc. And each part has an accompanying video, so you can actually see how it goes in real life. Besides the stages, Maggie covers marketing, workflow and organization, pricing, and selling. You will also find editing video (several images are edited in it), video on light and composition, as well as some bonus materials. Maggie shoots at clients homes, in studio, and outdoors, so you get ideas for different types of sessions. Even if you are not a professional photographer, but have your own little one (or just love photographing babies), you will find this breakout quite helpful, because you will know what you need and what to expect at each stage.

    This breakout is exactly what I was looking for.

    I love newborn photography, but it made sense for me to also explore capturing my newborn’s first year milestones…I just had no idea how to approach that! Maggie has given me so much valuable information not only regarding client interaction and the flow of a family session (from consultation, the shoot itself, and selling and providing the finished product), but also there is so much helpful business knowledge that is also included. She shoots and wrote this breakout from the heart and it is clear that she adores all of her clients and that she loves teaching as well. I feel so much more prepared now to approach the family that I recently did a newborn shoot for and discuss the possibilities of some milestone sessions this year. I’m so excited to see where all of this new knowledge takes me. Thank you for a wonderful, wonderful breakout Maggie.

    This breakout is fantastic value for money.

    Maggie outlines every part of the BFY concept, from idea through marketing, shooting and business success. She shares what she has learnt in her own journey in such a generous way and provides precisely the right information to help you decide if this sort of package is for you, and if so, how to make a success of it. I found little nuggets of wisdom and helpful reminders dotted throughout the materials and videos and I always love watching other photographers shoot and interact with their clients. If you specialise in family photography and you’re looking for ways to add value to your business this breakout is excellent.
