I'm not in business yet ... but I'm willing to take clients right now for less than I'll charge when I'm full into business. I was contacted out of the blue by a stranger for a maternity shoot - now I have the maternity shoot AND newborn shoot booked. I need to get the contract done and get her to sign and mail me a deposit (as the email history with her has been rough, she was shopping around for sure) to make it solid.
And I have to figure out if I need to properly get an EIN (tax number) or if this falls into the "hobby" category for now. Planning on checking with the small business office this week.
Just thought I'd share my excitement, this feels so real!
