Capturing the Moment

April 26, 2012

When Kim realized her hobby and talent of children’s photography could become a business, she wanted to make sure she got off on the right foot. Paul Howard of the ASU-SBDC was there to help her plan for the financial and legal portions of running a business while also raising her two kids.

Nature of Business : Photography
City : San Angelo, Texas
SBDC Business Adviser : Paul Howard 


Kim is a stay at home mom with two small children. She began dabbling with photography when her first child was born. This led her to start photographing newborn infants of friends and family. Kim also likes to do outdoor photography. She decided it was time to take this to the next level and contacted the Angelo State University • Small Business Development Center for assistance.

Kim met with Advisor Paul Howard and they discussed business structure and how to register her business. Other basic business topics included the need to keep good records and marketing. After meeting with Paul, Kim made the decision to start her business.

Kim says, “Paul Howard did an exceptional job advising me about my small business plan. It is comforting to know there is a place to go when I need to speak with someone I can trust. Paul called me after our appointment to check the status of my progress and has always been there to help me with my questions and concerns.”

Kim Torres Photography is now up and running and will make an impact on the local economy. The business created one job and hopes to expand to have a studio in the near future.
