Hi, I'm Manali! I started my photography business right after college after hustling for years trying to find opportunities to second shoot and then hustling to find my very first PAYING client (that wasn't a friend)!
I've been through:
- Struggling figuring out settings on the fly
- Trying to mask my OWN nerves while posing
- Crunching the numbers a million ways trying to figure out the "right" combination to go full-time with photography...
...and trying out all the marketing strategies and naturally, second guessing everything I just mentioned above!
I understand how tough it is running your business as a side-hustle.
But I ALSO know it's possible to go full-time with your photography less than a year after you start your business. Because I DID IT. And I truly believe, that you can too!
