“Local Love” - a fabulous tip from Kelli France on growing your audience: “My plan is to contact upscale boutiques and salons within my community. I'll ask one vendor each month if I can photograph their store and feature them on my blog with a giveaway. The giveaway will include a prize from both of us and will require peeps to like both of our Facebook pages and join our newsletters. I will encourage them to send their fans to check out the blog feature & giveaway via email and with a framed image to put by their cash register. Bam! My audience has just gotten bigger!”

When I was in college, I had a friend who was a professional photographer. The first time I went to her home, I walked in to find stunning photographs of her children on the walls.
There was a huge canvas in their living room and a creative photo display in the main hallway. I remember being so moved by the beauty of those images, thinking to myself, “I want to create images like this!” I bought myself a DSLR as a graduation present, learned photography from online courses and started my photography business about a year later.
