BEGINNER PHOTOGRAPHY FOR MAMAS! Ever wondered how those camera savvy Insta-Mamas get those ‘perfect’ looking images? Well, I’m lifting the veil and interviewing these Mamas (as well as professional family photographers) so you can learn how to do it too! I'm Amy Oliver, Mama of two cheeky girls, family photographer of 10 years and also professional tea drinker. I’m on a mission to help Mamas take better photos of their kids, without the confusing technical jargon! So grab a cuppa, put those ear buds in and get comfy. This is beginner photography and SO MUCH MORE, just for you!
#08 The heart led story behind LoveJK and the magic of gallery walls!
Jennifer is a mama to her beautiful Archie, designer, photographer, and dreamer of beautiful tangible keepsakes that she has made her mission to bring to life, co-founding LoveJK with her husband Ryan in late 2011.
In this episode we chat with Jen about the path that led her here, the amazing quality of the product she is so proud to offer, and the struggles that go along with being that Type A personality business woman and striving mama.
We know you will fall in love with Jen as we have, and be in awe of her incredible business LoveJK too. We are also incredibly honoured to have LoveJK as our key sponsor for our upcoming launch of Beginner Photography Masterclass for Mamas!! LoveJK will be gifting each student a framed 8"x10" print and we are so grateful. Yippee!!!

Easy Fun Listening
This is a great podcast to listen to for the little tips and tricks it takes to take great photos. Easy to understand even if you’re not a professional photographer and just easy listening when out for a walk.
I’m so glad I found this podcast. As a hobby/beginner photographer who loves photographing the ‘in between moments’ with my children I’ve found this podcast so inspiring. I really hope you release some more episodes Amy because I’ve enjoyed all the eps so far.
Honest, funny and lovely
I can not remember enjoying a podcast more. Amy is a beautiful host and her guests are funny and inspiring. Like so many my girls are who inspired me to pick up my camera and it just so wonderful to hear from others who have been there too.
