The dreaded acronym… MWAC. Mom with a camera. Maybe it’s because I read so many mom/photography blogs or maybe it’s because so many of us mothers weren’t motivated to delve into photography before we had an adorable live subject to “focus” on, but I have heard this term so often lately that I find myself apologizing for being one, which is just plain silly.
You may know that I’ve been toying with the idea of a photography business. I recently completed the Clickin Moms class, “So You Want to Start a Business?” It consisted of four week-long lessons about price structures, insurance, licensing, and writing a business plan, among other things. I realized that I definitely don’t have the time needed to pursue this at this point in my life. Maybe when my daughter begins kindergarten in a few years I will still want to do this. I am beyond happy to do a job here and there, but nothing “official.”
Just because I can take great pics doesn’t mean I MUST be a professional photographer. BUT, I am looking into selling some of my images online. More about that soon. I do love taking pictures and I love that others get pleasure from them as well.
