If you want to make extra income or launch a full-scale business from home, then consider photo coaching. If you’re a professional service provider like a photographer or estate planner, then I’ll show you how to strengthen your professional portfolio with photo coaching.

I’ve been a photo coach for almost 30 years and started as a young mother.

I’ve enjoyed helping families journal their family stories and show them how to safeguard their most meaningful memories.

It’s a career that has allowed me to spend time with my family and pursue hobbies like golf and pickleball while enjoying travel.

Read on and see why this is a great time to start a business as a photo coach.






Photo coaching offers flexibility

I launched my photo coaching career as a young mother who left the corporate world to care for my children and add to the family income. Sound familiar to anyone?

I know colleagues who’ve launched their businesses while in mid-career and others have started while approaching retirement.

The investment for launching this business is quite low and the need in the marketplace is great.

The need for photo coaches

About 97% of Americans own smartphones, according to Pew Research from a study done in 2021. The number of Americans who are snapping photos and recording videos on smartphones is growing every year and typical users have about 2,000 photos stored on just their phones.

Question: how many photos and videos do you have right now on your phone?

Think of how many more photos are on laptops and external hard drives.

Many of us still have traditional scrapbook albums on shelves at home along with VHS tapes, slide shows, and other media that we can’t enjoy.

Our memories are scattered. Let’s bring your favorite, your most meaningful memories into one private and secure place.

  4. Images are never compressed. They’re stored in full resolution.
  5. Store files in a central storage area and organize them into Albums, Nested Albums, and use Tags to identify them quickly.
  6. Turn your stored digital photos into photo books and other gifts that can be given and enjoyed during the holidays and all year long.
  7. Use FOREVER® to research your family’s history. Get a plan to begin your research or get help in locating hard-to-find records. Each file has an option for writing brief or lengthy descriptions so people reading in the future will understand why it’s significant.
  8. FOREVER® offers a streaming option so you can instantly view your videos on any device and when you share them with your family and friends, they can view instantly from any browser on any device.
  9. You’ll have tremendous support. I enjoy mentoring others and letting them know the ups and downs of my business and how I’ve been able to generate a full-time income for many years.

Think of it this way: FOREVER® is much better than a time capsule.
