Video Transcript:
I had a personal background in photography, but never thought I would have a job taking pictures. I learned the functions of the camera, the different poses of babies, and how to get comfortable dealing with the parents. The perfect person for this job has the energy to actually deal with the hassle of being up or down, handling the newborn safely. You have to be patient. A good sales strategy is important to the job because you're actually setting your own income when you do it. The sales process did not come easy to me at all. I've had previous jobs where I've sold, but it does take a strong seller. The more you sell the more money you make. My most rewarding experience would have been taking pictures of twins. And they were in the NICU for a very long time and the mom was so excited. And they will always remember the moment. With Mom365, the scheduling does fit my lifestyle, especially since I'm a student. I can pick the days that I don't have school, and I can work early in the morning and as long as I need to throughout the day just depending on the birthrate. I have the best job in the whole hospital, taking pictures of newborn babies that are so innocent and sweet and you have no choice but to love doing what you do.
