Definitely. He sometimes thinks I bite off more than I can chew b/c at any one time I have a dozen things going lol... but he thinks its really neat. And luckily, he doesnt complain too much about me spending money on it (unless things are tight) lol

yes, he took out a quick loan so i could buy my slr when i really really needed it. He wants me to teach him to use it too. but he's 100% behind me as long as it makes me happy. he helps me out with my equiptment when i have a shoot.

Yes and no, to support me means he can't play with the camera Just kidding. He is supportive. He takes credit for all the good pictures but his definition of good is perfect straight from the camera so it keeps me on my toes trying to better myself. Now I just need a voice recorder so I can state my shots on vacations and stuff so he can't steal them.

Sometimes. He's not ready to let me go full-time yet. He just needs the security of me having benefits and a steady paycheck from my "real" job. He starts complaining if I spend too much time on my photography and not enough time with him and the boys. Understandable though. He likes the extra money though when I am busy. It's a catch-22 situation with him.

My DH is pretty supportive, but like Sherri's DH, he thinks I take WAY too many pics. That's the joy of digital though, you can take a million and only print the ones you want.

Absolutely! He is really the professional photographer in the family. Even though I have some experience I still consider myself in the "learning process". Dh is extremely talented and photography/videography is his life (and career). It was dh's idea to open up our own photography business, so photography is a huge part of our life.

Mine is all for it as long as it keeps paying for the camera. But he is just happy that I have finally found something that I have a passion for.

My DH is 100% supportive and even talking to his company about me coming in and taking candids for the company slideshow at Christmas. He is the one who talked to his sister, though I am not the "official" photographer for her wedding, I will be taking candids of people while the official one is busy getting pictures of the bride & groom.
He is planning on this being a business for me, so I can work as needed and still bring in some money. He is planning on buying me some new lenses for the camera, a specialty printer and a few other things so I can start doing this professionally. Oh ya he is going through my old photos and saying how this picture and that picture will look good in my portfolio.
He has never supported me doing a home business before but he sees this is something I can be pretty good at, instead of direct sales.
