Crossroads between Hobby and Business | Photography Business or Hobby

Photography Business or Hobby

When he was born, I had to make the decision to be a real profitable business or take pictures of my kids for fun. If I was going to spend hours away from him at weddings or editing photos, I needed to turn a profit…or I needed to spend those days with him.

I chose to invest in education, upgrade my equipment and market myself to the masses. And I’m soo thankful I did.

I love photography. And I love running a business, creating marketing plans, building a team and strategizing. Having a business has kept me sane, given me purpose and helped channel my anxiety into passion. Visit this page for some corporate trainings that can be useful for your staff.

I know working isn’t for everyone but personally I’ve learned I’m a better mom when I have something to work on for myself. There is so much happiness in growth.

If you’re at the crossroads between hobby and business, think about the following from the IRS

  • Whether you carry on the activity in a businesslike manner
  • Whether the time and effort you put into the activity indicate that you intend to make it profitable
  • Whether you depend on income from the activity for your livelihood
  • Whether your losses are due to circumstances beyond your control, or are normal in the startup phase of your type of business
  • Whether you adjust your methods of operation in an attempt to improve profitability
  • Whether you (or your advisors) have the knowledge needed to carry on the activity as a successful business
  • Whether you were successful in making a profit in similar activities in the past
  • Whether the activity makes a profit in some years, and how much profit it makes
  • Whether you can expect to make a future profit from the appreciation of the assets used in the activity

Photography Business or Hobby

If you are ready to take the leap into running a business, remember to stay in your lane. There are enough clients to go around even in the most saturated of markets. Just because everyone is a photographer doesn’t mean you’re less of one! Don’t be afraid to cheer for the photographer next door while you’re going after your dreams.

I’ve taught HUNDREDS of photographers EVERY single system, marketing technique, Lightroom setting, lighting secret, location and pose I have. And here I am.

    This is good information! I don’t have children but I always wondered what I would do if I did and wanted to run a business.

When you book a package with Kylee Ann Photography, you become more than just a client. Our Kylee Ann brides become part of a tribe that is irreplaceable. Some of our greatest friendships have begun this way. 

We have found that our absolute favorite weddings have been for brides and grooms that book the full wedding experience. Because we spend so much time together with our couples before the wedding day, we are able to develop a genuine friendship, and crack the code to capturing your true personalities. 

Instead of coming to the wedding day as just another wedding vendor, we come comfortable and confident to capture the relationships exactly how we see them.


We love weddings...everything about them. Because of this, we love to hear every single detail throughout the entire wedding planning process. Your roommates may get tired of hearing your wedding plans (I know mine did), but we will not. We’re here to offer an open ear and lots of advice!






Kylee Ann brides have access to our KABride facebook community, weekly bride tips, unlimited consults, questions and of course, our 80-page Bride Magazine.
