In this comprehensive book, Cooney touches on each facet of being a successful newborn portrait photographer. She begins by outlining the foundation of her business model and provides insight for the reader to establish something similar for their business. Defining your target market and ideal customer profile are essential to guiding your business in the right direction. Cooney focuses her business, and this book, on what she calls a ‘boutique’ brand. These are pricier photo shoots and packages, which require more time and care. Working with clients at this level often creates a lasting relationship and hopefully, repeat business. This is where the branding of your business is so important. Not only can it deliver regular clients, but can also inspire important word-of-mouth references. Emphasizing how important it is for a photography studio to have structure and direction to become and remain successful, Cooney walks the reader through many scenarios that have helped form her business. A strong social media presence, creative marketing & promotions and repeat customers are the key to standing apart from the competition, therefor remaining vital.

Each of these Analysing Architecture Notebooks is devoted to a particular theme in understanding the rich and varied workings of architecture. They can be thought of as addenda to the foundation volume Analysing Architecture, which first appeared in 1997 and has subsequently been enlarged in three further editions. Examining these extra themes as a series of Notebooks, rather than as additional chapters in future editions, allows greater space for more detailed exploration of a wider variety of examples, whilst avoiding the risk of the original book becoming unwieldy. Shadows may be insubstantial but they are, nevertheless, an important element in architecture. In prehistoric times we sought shade as a refuge from the hot sun and chilling rain. Through history architects have used shadows to draw, to mould form, to paint pictures, to orchestrate atmosphere, to indicate the passing of time ... as well as to identify place. Sometimes shadow can be the substance of architecture.
