Hi Y’all.

I’m Serap.

We help photographers to grow, shine, build profitable businesses, take better photos, make more money and live life on purpose.

My journey started with a question in a photography course ‘What will you do after the course, Serap?’. 

I answered this question exactly like this ‘I want to be a baby photographer and I will photograph babies from all over the world’ Be careful with your wishes:) I started taking baby photos in 2013 in Istanbul, Turkey. After 5 years, I found myself in Canada in 2018 and this is the best place to take babies images from all over the world. I’ve photographed over 1.000 babies from 86 countries (still counting).

I didn’t always have this business: the photography students, the courses, the 6 figure sales,…

When I started baby photography in 2013, I didn’t know where to start. We struggled to book sessions. Even at low prices. We felt drained and discouraged. Considered giving up completely. 

Then I started to invest both time and education in this business. I tried many systems, developed them, I kept working until I found the most perfect one. (I still continue)
I felt so happy to train a photographer in 2017. Almost as much as taking a photo. Then, I founded Serap Seker Academy in 2020, I talked to more than 1,100 baby photographers and I have more than 600 students now.

Take your photography to the next level, invest in yourself and your business by learning the techniques I have learned over years to capture and create remarkable images that you and your customers will love.

I founded the Babies & Photographers Association in 2021. Its mission is to Inspire, Motivate, Educate, Promote and Support professional baby photographers.

Babies & Photographers Association brings together a community of passionate photographers committed to growing in their knowledge, skills and business by providing its members with the best resources to accomplish this mission.

Currently, I’m probably dreaming of ways I can help other photographers grow profitable, passionate, authentic photography businesses that allow them to live more and work less.
