I was fortunate to meet Mimika Cooney at a photography workshop that we both attended. She was very sweet to spend some time with me after the conference, sharing her experiences with NILMDTS. When I found that she had written a book, I knew I had to read it. The book is well written, easy to read and is packed with beautiful photos and lots of great advice that could only come from experience. As I read, I felt that I was receiving the information from a friend. The book seems to speak from the heart of a friend advising another on how to truly succeed in a business that she seems to love and enjoy......Thank you for sharing your knowledge. I'm planning a second reading of the book, especially Chapter 4. Maximizing Your Web Site, which was very practical and informative. Especially appreciated are check lists and forms that are included in this book. Newborns and early childhood are my favorites and Mimika includes some fun photos of the messy nature of the business. Fun book that packs a lot of knowledge.

I started my children's photography business approximately a year ago, and have purchased well over 20 photography books, both for business and for inspiration. This book covers everything from what to charge, how to target (and treat) the customers you are looking for, ideas I hadn't even thought of and so much more! Her suggestions regarding setting up a studio are so informative, I believe I could start today and know exactly what would need to be done. The images provided in the book are as beautiful as they are informative. Mimika Cooney knows this business inside and out and has done a WONDERFUL job sharing it with others.

This is a wonderful resource. I will go back to it when I need to update or if I'm needing some encouragement in the boutique photography. Whether you are a newbie or a photographer needing some new education this is a great book to read and memorize. I would recommend for any type of photographer wanting to change their style, update and give more to their business or just need a little inspiration.

I have been a photographer for five years. This book was very basic. A good read for someone starting out. It was very short. I thought it would have some info about posing very young babies and it did not. It was ok but not worth the price.

If you are starting a Newborn Photography business....this is your bible. I wish I had found this book before I bought several others. Mimika Cooney is a wonderful photographer with a great business and marketing background. She gives you real insight into what you need to do to establish yourself and how to market yourself to attract clients. I am thrilled about how much her book has helped me start Baby Gaga Photography. Mimika is also very accessable. If you have any questions for her you can send her an email and she will definitely get back to you. You can also see her show on Youtube and she even has an online school. I just love her and all the tips she has to offer.

In this book, Mimika Cooney not only shares information, but inspiration as well. Yes, the book has sections on how to shoot, but the wealth of knowledge in this book is in the early chapters on building your business; marketing your business using social marketing and other options; and the operations of going from a new customer, to bringing them back again, and again, and again. I would strongly suggest it as required reading for anyone looking to start or continue the maternity and baby part of their business.

I learned quite a bit from this book and got some pretty good ideas to use in my studio. I liked the section on baby plans the most.

I must have misunderstood what this book was when I purchased it. I was trying to find a book on how to photograph babies. It is a book to help you start a photography business. It is very well written for what its purpose is. If I were to open a photography business than this is a book that I would definitely use to assist me.

Was hoping for something unique, but this book is the bare basics of baby photography. You can find the same basic info on YouTube.
