newborn photographer
Lead Photographer/Field Trainer (Former Employee), Springfield, OHFebruary 23, 2014
Pros: seeing people during the happiest time of their life, and the babies!
Cons: no money or room to advance
Who wouldn't love taking newborn pictures!
There's just not any money to be made and no room for advancement.
They pay commission OR hourly rate, if they paid both it would be much better and more worth your time and effort.
Managers are hard core "sell sell sell"... it's like they don't realize that some people simply can't afford $300 for baby photos!

Infrastructure rescue and turn around
Senior IT Manager - Infrastructure (Current Employee), Saint Charles, MOFebruary 21, 2014
Pros: friendly environment, has very much a "family" feel
Cons: the it environment has been grossly neglected for a very long time
When I entered Mom365 I realized that there was a lot of work laid out before me. The company has been around for decades and has operated under different names including: FirstFoto, Growing Family, Hasco, Our365 and now Mom365.
IT within the company had not been a focus and had been greatly underfunded for 10-12 years, Much of their IT infrastructure – more... was old and out of support and well past end of life.
Within a very short time frame I spearheaded and initiated the following:
- Built out a robust Virtual environment and virtualized our entire environment using VMWare.
- Evaluated and restructured our entire networking topology including replacing load balancers and building out an entirely new wireless network and replacing a very old Pix firewall with a new SSL firewall.
- Upgraded and replaced a very old, out of support phone system.
- Initiated a full site replication as part of our DR and BC plans.

While there is still a tremendous amount to still do at Mom365, I have significantly reduced unplanned downtime and outages and laid the ground work for the future. – less

Work at your own risk
Baby Photographer (Former Employee), NCFebruary 15, 2014
Pros: taking photos of babies for families that appreciate the service
Cons: working on commission with no base pay.
At the outset the job seemed like a great job! But from one day to the next you never knew what to expect. On the last day I worked I had 25 babies to take photographs of and was on the floor by myself because another photographer had to go to replace another at a different regional hospital.
Co-workers could be nice to work with, but watch your back.
Doctors – more... and nursing staff treat you like unprofessionals and largely do not respect the services you bring to the hospital.
The most enjoyable part was the babies, and taking photos of them.
The company needs to pay a base-pay plus commission. There is no way to make a living from the compensation they provide.
You could work an hour and only make minimum wage, only as a default. They also need to pay the photographers for the time it takes to go and get money orders on their own time for cash payments of photo packages to mail to the corporate office.
The packages are highly overpriced and the company puts a lot of pressure on the photographer to sell top down. – less

Loved the people I worked with but the company is a complete disaster and are very unproffesional
photographer and sales represenative (Former Employee), roanoke memorial hospitalFebruary 5, 2014
Pros: enviroment
Cons: bosses, unloyal, deceat
This job was very unprofessional and unloyal. My coworkers and surrounding people were amazing and we worked well together. I would say the best part of this job was the enviroment. But the worst was the company, pay, and bosses. As well as not knowing the rules or truth because everything was unclear.

Management was hard to contact, not enough hours
Professional Photographer (Former Employee), Detroit, MINovember 6, 2013
Pros: newborn babies, happy moms and dads
Cons: snobby doctors and nurses and management, less hours
The idea of photographing newborn babies was awesome. I loved taking pictures of babies. that was all that I liked about this job. You get paid commission and you had to sell these expensive packages to the parents. Most had more than one child. Almost no one wanted to get pictures. Then you had to deal with snobby nurses and doctors that would come – more... in a get the baby in the middle of the session. And there was nothing you could do about it. Literally I couldn't do anything because my job said what they had to do was more important. It was an irritating job. I went from working 5 days a week to working 2 days a week for 4 hours a day. that's nothing to live off of. That job was a big inconvenience. Management was the worst.. Seriously. – less

Extremely flexible
Newborn Photographer (Current Employee), Saint Charles, MOSeptember 19, 2013
This company is fun to work for and you'll really enjoy making moms happy with their first photo session in hospital. On the plus side this job is really flexible to your schedule. On the negative side, not much room for advancement, work off commission (which could really be a positive as well) they sometimes seem to not value you as a photographer, – more... the front line people who make this company possible. – less

Great Learning Experience for beginner sales
Newborn Photographer/Sales (Former Employee), Ridgewood, NJJune 25, 2013
Pros: working with newborn babies and new moms
Cons: only commission
The job in itself was a great opportunity for me to learn the sales business and meet new people. The downside is that the products offered are a little overpriced and therefore the commission salary you make is not what you think it is going to be
