Frame Worthy Shot. . . Open for Business!

Hello everyone, I'm so excited to start blogging about what I'm passionate about.  I hope many of you will find the photography information useful and interesting.  I'm going to start by introducing myself and telling you about my plans for this blog.

As you probably already know, I'm Jill.  This is me and my cute family.
You can probably tell by the photos of my family, I stay busy!  My boys are a full time job all by themselves but I make time for my photography because I love it.  It's my hobby, and lucky for me, it's also my job. 

I own a portrait studio, Sweet Confections Photography.  I specialize in newborns but I really do a little of everything.  You can see my work at my website, my blog, or my facebook.
I am a self taught photographer and I am in no way going to claim I know everything, but I've managed to build a successful business and I want to share some of that knowledge with fellow photographers and aspiring photographers.  My goal is to save other aspiring photographers some of the blood, sweat, and tears that I put in over the years. 
As you can probably see from my work, I love props.  I have a somewhat whimsical style.  I also love photojournalistic shots, particularly with families.  I love capturing that emotion, and even better, I love seeing my clients' reactions when they see those photos!
Okay here are my plans for this blog:
- digital design freebies
- posing tips
- technical stuff
- studio lighting set-ups
- finding the light when shooting outdoors
- session tips
- marketing and sales tips
- post-processing tutorials
- prop and action reviews and giveaways
- weekly photo contests
- guest photographer interviews
-question and answer

and so much more. . .

So here's your chance. . . Got photography questions?  Email them to me at  I will not have time to reply to each email individually but once I week I will choose one email to answer in detail in a blog post.  So gather your questions and send them my way. 

Thanks for supporting me in my new endeavor.  I hope some of you will be active participators!  Let's have fun!
