Help me out here.
Sooooooooooo.....I love doing photography! As a matter of fact, I think the reason I've been doing so well in my recovery with ED is because I've found something that I am so passionate about and somewhere to focus my energy. When I first started I did a bunch of free stuff and I'm glad I did. It gave me a portfolio, plus it gave me experience. I've told Dave that I need to shoot once a week in order to grow. So sometimes I take my girls out if I don't have a shoot scheduled, or I'll call one of my former YW to play around and practice new techniques. I don't mind doing this at all....in fact it is fun, cause it's stress free.
So this is where I need advice.
I start to feel guilty when friends need photos done.
I feel like because we're "friends" I should do them for free or give them a discount. I don't want to feel this way. I mean there a few 'bests' that I don't have a problem doing this for. And there are some situations that I want to do them for people etc. But for the most part I want to make money.
So is this just me, or does people feel this way? I feel that friends expect a discount or a free pass.
What do you think?
What should I do?
Should I have a standard when it comes to friends, or do it case by case?
If you were my friend what would you expect me to do for you?
