A Cabin Fever Infection

OK, so this staying home 24/7 to save on gas is nice and everything, but we have GOT to get out and go SOMEWHERE! Both Ava and I are cranky and unmotivated! I think we may go check out the library so we know what it’s like for future reference. I looked online, and they have “Baby Time” scheduled two mornings a week, which sounds like a great way to get Ava and myself out of the house and meet new moms and babies. But it doesn’t start until the school year starts in about 3 weeks, and we need something NOW! I do need to get some groceries, so that may have to do.

So, some of my blogging friends are in the photography business, and I am seeking opinions. I would really like to advertise myself on Craigslist for my area to do free photo shoots. I am basically trying to build a good portfolio, and the only money I intend to charge is if they want me to order their prints for them. (If they want to order them themselves, I will give them a CD of the images for free!) Oh, and if it’s not in town, I’ll probably ask to be reimbursed for mileage. Anyway, I feel like if I do this, I need to have a website set up so that people have an opportunity to look at a few of my pictures, learn a little bit about me, etc. I have a wonderful, computer savvy husband who is perfectly capable of helping me set up the site, but that is not my concern. But does my “business” need to have a name? Josh already has a business with a web site called LinkSoftSystems, and the easiest thing to do would be to call it “LinkSoft Photography” so that my website could just be a branch of his website (and therefore cost nothing!) But is that catchy enough? I don’t want anything too trendy, because it’s just me, and I intend to use my photography more as a ministry for people who can’t afford professional photos (but may be able to afford, say, a $70.00 package) than a money generating machine. And what all should the website have? I, of course, would have some of my pictures, probably organized onto different pages for different categories (weddings, engagements, etc.), a page with contact information, and a page with pricing information. I’d really like to keep it relatively simple. Anyway, any thoughts on the process, and links to some example sites, would be appreciated!
