Re: If you want to be depressed check this out

We have one in our town - she shoots no weddings in our town...all in the city an hour away. Does maybe 10 a year.
Her hubby has a 'real' job.
She also shoots newborns and teaches at a local college (photoshop, photography, etc).
A few others I've met at PPA events -if you ask them- will tell you they do 5 big weddings a year and often make their money off school pics, owning a chain of 'portrait innovations' and the like.

My opinions are my own and not those of DPR or its administration. They carry no 'special' value
