I loved this book, full of inspiring photography and great ideas to kick start your portrait business. Along with practical advice on marketing for your business there is plenty of information to help you get and keep those oh so valuable clients, and keep them coming back for more. Chapters on building and really making a website work for you, advice on marketing materials and handouts for potential customers. There are also chapters covering the different stages of babies development, where a great portrait is a must have for any proud parent/grandparent. Help on choosing outfits for the photo session and practical advice for when things don't quite go according to plan, those babies and toddlers can be messy and temperamental little creatures at times. If you happen to leave this book lying around where grubby little hands can get at it, don't worry, it has a hard wearing laminated cover that can be easily wiped clean, always a bonus when working around children. This volume is a highly recommended addition to any photographers library.
