Do you need help to get your photography business started?
Are you like me asking yourself where do I start, or perhaps you want to start a home based studio part time or full time or you just need some help with a few things?
I started from scratch with nothing and have built a successful home studio and now I own a full service studio in Carlsbad, San Diego. I worked around my kids schedule and worked from my home.
