PictureHum founder

From PictureHum founder Abi Smigel Mullens:

"I created PictureHum to connect families with vetted and high quality family photographers. I knew there had to be a better way for friends to personally recommend family photographers as well as a more simple solution for pricing and booking.

I'm tackling this problem using my almost 20 years of experience working in the photography industry as an underwater photographer and as my experience as a mom to two young children.

In my time as a photographer I have been asked to take photos of friends children and families more times than I can count. I realized that the reason they were asking is they wanted a personal recommendation for this most important of services. When I started to dig deeper, I found that the pricing is also intimidating. While pricing for sitting fees is upfront and clear, package pricing and prints becomes more fuzzy.

On the flip side, I know what it is like to run your own business as a creative. The fun part is shooting and editing photos, while the tedious and often expensive part is running the business and marketing oneself.

I came up with the PictureHum marketplace to solve these problems. Families can find local family photographers their friends have recommended with clear pricing for a standard one hour session and digital images. Family photographers can set their own pricing and availability with minimal legwork in marketing to local families.

I am so excited to share this service with you! I hope PictureHum will be a solution to this problem and enable families to capture sweet moments easily and affordably. I look forward to seeing amazing images of your beautiful families!"
