Starting a Photography Business

As you all know I am starting a photography business.  I haven’t talked much about it up to this point, so I figured I would tell you what my ambitions are and what I plan on focusing on with my business.

Like any business you want to find a niche whether it be newborn photos, family portraits, weddings, the list goes on.  I am focusing on pets.  They are my favorite.

For me it is fun because I love catching that moment. That face they make that makes your heart melt, or the thing that they do every time you walk through the door, just sends warm and fuzzy feelings down my spine.

I have been talking about starting this for a long time and a couple of weeks ago I decided that I was finally just going to jump in.  I finally made a website, and am writing this blog to get my name out there some.

I am going to local business’ like breeders and seeing if they need portraits done of their dogs and puppies, which we will see how that goes.

I am ordering business cards, so I can hand them out to local business’ as well, and signing up for craft fairs this winter. I am really working hard to market myself and build my confidence up so that I can maybe one day work from home and be self sustaining.

If you have any tips for me getting my business going I would love to hear them.
