Small business

So, yesterday I promised to blog about the small business idea that's been floating around our heads for the past few weeks, months maybe?? Anyway, I'm pretty obsessed with photography, and it seems there's a real lack of maternity/newborn photography in the area. I think both are incredibly beautiful subjects, and something that is close to my heart. Last year when my sister was pregnant, my plan was to fly out to visit them shortly after they had the baby so I could practice on her. I would get to meet my new niece and my sis and bil would have (hopefully) beautiful photos of their first baby.

Unfortunately my niece made an unexpected appearance well before her due date (around 29 weeks) and spent much time in the NICU. By the time she got out and was healthy enough to be around others, I lost my opportunity to get my bum out there - you know how it is, work, life everything else gets in the way, and sometimes it's just difficult to prioritize.

So, my idea is in the next year to practice practice practice and read up on starting a small business, and hopefully by this time next year will be able to do it part time, and then, who knows!

Good luck! I think it's a great idea -- you've identified a gap in the market that you can fill. Do it!
