Which direction should I go?

First, let me apologize for not updating anything for the last 2 months. 
I've been at a crossroad in my life and I've got a few decisions to make.

One decision I need to make is where to go with this Website.
The other is where to go with my photography.

I personally like the idea of not having back to back photo sessions, 5 days a week.
Plus, I enjoy not having to edit a ton of images and have them done by a certain deadline.

I like to do things at my own pace, especially because I have 4 (soon to be 5 next month) kids.

My passion is photography. But I don't want it to become a chore, or never have time to capture memories and images of my children as they grow up.

I really want to branch out into teaching other women like myself, how to take photos of their children, or how to get the basics so they can start a photography business (if they would like to do so). 

The only thing is I don't want to spend all my time designing and writing a course workbook. But I am going to have a lot of sleepless nights here soon. Maybe, I'll be able to use that time wisely to get something done. I really want to take on small classes of 5 to 10 women/men who want to learn how to use their DSLR cameras. We'll be able to go over what the settings on their camera are, how to use them to obtain the best image, and then I'll supply them with a model or two and let them get some hands on experience. Nothing better than hands on experience. 

I'd probably offer this class two Saturdays and two Sundays a month. The class itself would only be about 2 hours with an hour of shooting time.

The introductory price for my class will be $150 per person. Each student will get a course workbook with all the information we'll go over in the 2 hour class. It will also have some space in the back to take any notes that you might want to write down.

The introductory price will last until January 1st, 2015. 
I'll be taking classes starting June 14th, 2014 (that's when I will be back from my "maternity leave"). I will need at least 5 student's in order to run each class. Classes can be held in the MD/DC/VA area.

If you wish to have a one-on-one mentor session the price will be dependent upon the amount of time you wish to have with me and a model.
2 hours- $200
3 hours- $300
4 hours- $375
5 hours- $450
You will still get a workbook, but a one-on-one session will be geared towards exactly what you want to learn. We will communicate through email in order for me to find out what you need to work on and I will put together a specific plan for you.

If you are interested in finding out more information or would like to inquire about a Skype lesson, please feel free to email me about pricing.

Thanks for allowing me to talk about what I'm thinking about and for catching up on my blog.
