a work in progress | studio sneak peek
My husband is awesome. Yes, I’m admitting that publicly, mostly because it’s true, but also because I’m pretty sure he doesn’t read this blog. See, I like to make grandiose plans in my head and then naively think that all it takes is a few nails and some paint to bring them to life. He knows better, but he’s kind enough (and smart enough) not to tell me that I’m out of my mind. Instead, he just tells me to go for it, fully knowing that he’s committing himself to doing the bulk of the work. I help, of course – I can wield a paintbrush like a pro – but the heavy lifting is all on him (both figuratively and literally).
So, when I showed him the studio space and told him what I had in mind, fully convinced that it would only take “a day or two”, he just nodded and quietly loaded up the back of the truck with power tools. One month, lots of heavy lifting, and way too many hours spent at Ikea later, I finally have the studio space I’ve always envisioned.
We still have a bit to go: the floors need to be refinished, some trim work needs to be added, and the new lights need to be hung. We’re working on it (and by “we” I mean “Michael”). In the meantime, I had my very first client in the studio yesterday morning – a beautiful newborn baby boy – and Saturday is the first beginner’s photography class. I was going to wait until it was completely done before posting any pictures, but I’m not that patient, so here is a sneak peek …
Don’t forget that I am running two in-studio specials through March 31st! If you are expecting in the next couple of months and are planning to have newborn photos done, contact me to schedule your session ASAP. If your baby is a bit older and is just starting to roll over or sit up, you can also take advantage of the mini session special to capture those once in a lifetime milestones.
