Super Monday Instructors: Make Maternity Photography Work with Tanya Hovey

tanya_hovey_headshot.jpegTanya Hovey, CPP, of Little Angels Photography in Layton, Utah, first become interested in photography after her first child was born. Like most new moms, she just couldn't stop taking her baby's picture! However, unlike most new moms, Hovey took her newly discovered passion for photography to the next level.

"The difference with me was that I had a craving to learn more. I wanted to perfect my images," says Hovey about her drive to turn professional. "I took all the night classes offered in my area regarding photography. I read all the books I could get my hands on. After about a year, I was laid off my job, and I decided to start a photography business. I never knew my business would turn into what it has. And I have PPA to thank for all my successes these past 10 years."

Over the last 10 years, Hovey has become one of Utah's top maternity photographers. One aspect that she sees as crucial to her success was the availability of PPA's educational programs. "Everything I have learned has made me an awesome photographer and a great business woman," she notes. "In this business world, you have to be both!"

If you're interested in maternity photography, don't miss your own chance at anhovey1.jpeg educational program: Hovey's "Maternity Portraits" Super Monday class on October 25th in Utah.

Hovey is ready to share her hard-earned knowledge about making maternity photography work, from marketing to maternity clients to establishing a good workflow. In addition, you'll see a sample photo shoot with a maternity model, during which Hovey will take you through the entire image making process all the way up to the portrait delivery.

"I hope photographers taking my course will be able to learn what has worked for me these past 10 years," Hovey comments. "I can teach them about my mistakes and hopefully, they won't make the same mistakes with their photography businesses!"
