One suggestion might be to have an assortment of pet clothing to dress up the animals, kind of like one of those photo galleries at Disney or Dollywood where they will make you look like your photo is from the Wild West, just do it for animals. Shop for you clothing at your nearby thrift store. Add other props as well to add character to the shots.
*Pet Graduations – Sticking with the pet theme, contact the local dog training schools to see if you can be on hand at the end of the class. Pet owners are as crazy as parents about having great photos of their “babies”.

*Family Postcards – Many families now have their picture taken professionally for holiday greeting cards.

You can put together a package that supplies postcards and event albums. There is no limit to what you can do in this category.
If you have any creativity at all, you can have a part-time occupation in which you can make money with your digital camera.
