Most people treasure photos of their families and friends. Many people send out holiday greetings with pictures of their loved ones each year. Some even create personalized calendars for their relatives with each month featuring different pictures of their family.
However, portrait photos and photo shoots can be quite expensive. If you enjoy photography or are good with a camera, why not offer to get some shots of your friends' families for free? Make it fun! Meet up at a favorite park or coffee shop and just start taking pictures!
You have a chance to do something you enjoy while simultaneously saving your friends a lot of money!
Offer to take some photos regularly, every couple of months or so. Those friends with young children will particularly appreciate this as young kids grow so fast. Once you have the photos, you could even offer to create an album for your friends, highlighting your favorite shots.
Next time you spot some tourists taking pictures, offer to take a group shot for them. You are saving them the trouble of trying to find someone to take it for them.
