I just found a lady on craigslist that lives in my area and is advertising $50 for a 1 hour session "on location", promises at least 25 images on cd, etc. The funny thing is... she calls herself maricopa mom photography (like my screen name) and has children in the same age range as my own. I checked out the gallery (www. maricopa mom. com remove spaces of course) and saw some snap shots of her family and a couple pics of another child.
Now, to be fair, I just have a dinky point and shoot that is dying on me and I really don't know much about photography from a hands-on point of view (I only take pics of my own kids and friends... for fun), but I was amazed that she was comfortable charging strangers!

:O makes me also glad I'm not looking for a doula if those photos are worth $100

LOL! I wonder if she gets any business.

Sort of off topic but does it make you guys mad too when you see people with seemingly thriving business who you think still really need to work on the basics? I guess my anger is really misdirected, I'm probably just mad at myself for not being secure or brave enough to actually start PBing and working my way toward going into real business or something..
Sometimes I think ignorance about your own talent (or lack thereof) is bliss!
