Spring of 2019. What an incredible year it has already been here at Fount!

Recently we opened registration for both our in person workshop for motherhood photographers as well as our online course! Our online course registration has closed, and we begin April 1st- we can’t wait to dive into all of the content with this year’s attendees! There are only a few spots left for our November workshop- you can get all the details for joining us HERE.

One of the areas that we are committing to improving here at Fount this year is getting more eyes on your published features. Being a photographer myself, I recognize not only how much time it takes to create a great submission for the chance to be published, but how valuable your time is as a whole. So we took some time to reflect on how we could add more value to your features- which all came back to being found online as a business and connecting you with clients who desire to book your photography. In order to do that, we are committing to better optimizing each feature for SEO (search engine optimization) based on the type of session being featured as well as the location- AND better optimizing each and every feature for Pinterest- a search engine that we believe has the potential to be our greatest referrer of website traffic. We are taking intentional steps to better both of these areas!

We also are going to be creating some cornerstone content that we believe our website audience and readers will be very interested in. The first will be an ultimate Maternity Session Style Guide available for free download. What to wear for maternity pictures is such a common question for expecting mothers. (if you’re a motherhood photographer, you know this well!)

We want to provide an incredible, beautiful free resource- and if you’re a motherhood photographer- we want YOU to be a part of it.

This guide will be a cornerstone piece of content here on our website, and highly shared & promoted on our Pinterest. (since we began taking more intentional steps to be seen on this platform, we have already seen an increase of 150k monthly views in just 7 days!)

We are now taking submissions for your best maternity images where you can provide a shop link to what your client was wearing.

All images chosen for the guide will be given photographer credit- including your website AND Instagram- so this is an amazing, one of a kind opportunity to get your work seen by expecting mothers in a new way.

We will be announcing additional submission opportunities for additional content we have planned over the next few weeks.
