Alli Peck with Glow Portraits™ has been a photographer for 12 years and began specializing in newborn/maternity photographer 7 years ago. She resides in a small rural town in northern British Columbia, Canada. She’s a mama to 4 children and a wife of 19 years and manages to balance family, traveling while working full time. There’s nothing else she’d imagine doing than being a photographer who is able to create beautiful memories for her clients.
My girlfriend wanted maternity pictures so we took them in my living room with natural light and a point/shoot camera. It was so much fun and I foresaw this becoming a business.
I have 4 children, my oldest is 18 years old and has severe special needs. When I travel I either hire a sitter or my husband is home at night from his work.
Facebook years ago was a great marketing tool. Word of mouth in my area also helped marketing.
My beanbag is my favorite baby item.
Favorite prop is Lemondrop Backdrops.
Future is determined only by your own limitations. I hope to continue photographing bellies!
Do what makes you happy, there is nothing worse that having a job that you dread doing or going to.
The money and dedication it can take to run a successful business.
