One of the best ways to have an extra income is to just get out there with your camera and start taking pictures. It's something you can do in your spare time, you don't have to work for anyone else, and it's one of the best ways to start a business for yourself.
Photography is a form of art that people are willing to pay for because you're capturing memories they care about, and will be proud to hang on their wall. It's an easy way for you to get out in your spare time and get paid to have fun creating art.
It's something that takes work and practice to get good at, but I love helping stay at home moms improve their photography so they can get off the ground and run with it.
I have a Photography Tips Blog with tons of fun video tutorials to help you use your SLR camera and take better pictures!
Some of my favorites are: Tips for Better Infant Photography Sessions, How to Work Your New SLR Camera, and DIY backdrops for your home.
I love being a photographer and capturing memories for people. In my first year of getting an SLR camera, I had over 100 photo sessions including 23 weddings and was able to provide for my family just doing what I love on the weekends. It's seriously the smartest work-at-home opportunity there is, and I love sharing with other moms who are struggling to help support their families.
