We had the good fortune of connecting with Linda and Istvan Takacs and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Linda and Istvan, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
When we started our photography business we wanted to offer great quality and affordable prices. We started 4 years ago and even though we have won international awards for our newborn images, have taught newborn photography to others all over the world, we still stayed true to why we started! We still try to keep it so that most families can get the best quality memories at an affordable rate!
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Newborn photography was definitely not an easy path to master. We took this job very seriously and we spoke to pediatricians about newborn safety to make sure that we can detect if something is wrong when we meet babies and to know how to handle them safely. I think that what sets us apart is that our images are so real. They are moody and elegantly toned but they babies look comfortable and natural. We are very proud that we are now working with vendors to represent their brands, have started teaching and are working on bigger plans but cannot speak of them until they are closer to being accomplished. 🙂 This industry is very competitive and it requires a lot of hard work, dedication and patience. Working together is definitely what made us excel at the rate that we have. We want every newborn photographer to know that moms truly just want beautiful images of their babies looking happy! Its not about the perfect pose, its not about the amount of poses, its all about capturing that smile that mom loves, its all about the baby looking peaceful… its all about creating memories that will last a lifetime! Don’t over think it, look at it from a moms perspective and you will succeed!
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
We would definitely go to Erwin Park in McKinney Texas and ride the bike trails until sunset. We would then end the evening by having the most amazing yet delicious meal at Tropical Smoothie Cafe in McKinney!
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would definitely say that we have to give thanks to each other! We are a husband and wife duo and we push each other to the max! Also, I would like to give a shout out to all of our customers and fans! Without them we would be nothing! One more shoutout to Tropical Smoothie Cafe in McKinney Texas, https://www.facebook.com/tscMcKinneyTX, they make our lunches almost every day. Their food is healthy and full of flavor, we could not keep going without them!
