A mom at Leila's Saturday morning tennis lesson was telling me about the joys of starting a home business, as she casually hands me a Cookie Lee catalog. "What do you do for a living?" She asks. "I'm a mom." Proudly, I respond. "And a photographer." I felt the unwelcome need to add.

"Really? We've been looking for someone to photograph our whole family. Bring me some of your business cards next week. I'd also like to put some on our bulletin board at work. I work at social services and we place children in homes with loving families. We have lots of families who would love to have their photos taken together with their new children."

So, I'm diving in.
And printing moo cards.

Hi Gina, I am so pumped that you are starting a business!!! how exciting.
Feel free to email me if you have any questions. Its hard getting started but it picks up speed fast.. and you have such a natural talent you wont have any problem booking clients.

If you need a nice flash layout for a photography site WINKLET designs is where mine came from. Its super easy to update.

Keep me posted!
