The next Momtography class is less than a week away and I know 24 more ladies are gearing up for an afternoon of fun, learning, and growth. I know I am excited to meet and work with them all! One of my favorite parts of our afternoon together is setting a little bit of time aside to share some of the resources I have found over the years. Resources I have found to be an invaluable and fun part of being a photographer and mom.
My #1, top choice, must have it now resource? SmugMug. Hands down.Â No contest.
SmugMug is a photo storage and sharing site famous for making your photos look amazing. Their tagline, “Your photos look better here” is no joke. With SmugMug you can store, view, and retrieve your original images at any time. You can print from their reputable photo labs. And you can even customize the look and feel of the site your liking.Â They have 3 affordable annual subscriptions plans to choose from based on your level of usage, but I think the service they offer is priceless.Â They also offer a 14 day free trial to give them a test drive. I highly recommend you give them a try and ensure your digital photos are in safe keeping.
#2 pick? Memolio.
They’ve appeared on the blog before. They’ve really been around here since I started out on this photography journey and have been such a supporter in me and my growth. I absolutely love what they’re about, their customer service, and their product. Memolio offers mini albums or brag books. Great gifts for the grandparents! Or for you slip in a purse to share with friends. Or for dad to keep on a desk at the office. So many uses in such a cute little package.Â A GREAT way to share all the fabulous images of your kiddos!
And now? It’s time for some fun!
Who doesn’t want custom camera bags, camera straps, or lens bling?! I love Etsy! And Etsy led the way to some of these amazing shops who are cranking out fun & custom photography goodies.
Martilena is making out custom dslr camera bags.
VMJESS is making custom, cross-body camera straps.
Happy Acres Farm is making cute cute cute lens bling animals to keep your kiddos looking at the camera!
These are just a select few of my top picks, but they are the ones that really top my list. I hope you stop by their stores and sites and tell them Be Young Photography sent you. I know they’ll be happy to see you there!
