Studio is up and running !

Milana's school bbq 021

...and we are ready to roll!!!

Milana's school bbq 006 name is Wanda

There! I said it.
But the good news is - I'm on the wagon.

Pre-studio & misc 110
The summer started with cleaning, purging and organizing the kids "stuff" (and I'm not proud to say that they were getting worse than me....eeeek!).
Then we started on my/our "stuff". I want to be able to work comfortably throughout the year as we have fabulous natural light in our loft and if I can move around and shoot with some distance, I needed to clear out a mess of "stuff".
So, that's exactly what I did.

Pre-studio & misc 116
It took just about the whole summer because I had a flurry of shoot to do and everyone booked all at once. I was happy for the business but it took forever to finish my "little" project.
With over 500 sq. feet of floor space and a 9 foot cathedral skylight, it really is a perfect studio. (Which is what it originally was built for till the kiddos took over.)

So, to celebrate my new space - and to launch the new fall season, I'm doing a give-away for local people (unless you see a roadtrip in your near future).
A FREE Photo shoot!!!
All you have to do to enter is: leave a comment here below
or on my Facebook personal page
and "like" me. ('cause I know you do. You do, don't you?)

Please leave me your name.
Or e-mail me, mentioning the give-away, and I'll enter your name that way.
We will randomly pick a winner (well....the kids will from a hat) and the winner will be announced and receive a free photoshoot with me either in my studio or at a location of your choice anytime this year.

I'm so excited to be working in all this space and look forward to a great new season. And can't wait to meet the winner of my free photo shoot give-away!!!

Happy Lavour Day!

Faith Hope Love Photography said...

It looks so, so perfect! I would kill for that space. People tend to think it is funny when I set everything up in my kitchen, but hey, it works! I love, love, love your flooring!

Wanda said...

Faith Hope Love - my floors are "pickled". I spent about 3 days on my hands and knees (a few years ago)painting a rubbing and polishing. It was worth it. Hides multitude of sins. lol

Looks fantastic! Good for you! PS: I am a stuff-oholic too. I really noticed it since the big move....

oooooooooOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH LA EVER did I miss THIS??? I knew you said you were setting up a new desk but this...well, this is just over the top!

Your studio (which I am proud to say I've been in SEVERAL times...ok, in one weekend but that counts!) is beyond the pale!! I absolutely love every single thing about it and your desk is workable! When EVER did you collect all that cool photographer gear and not tell me about it all? I love it...just LOVE it. I want details and then I need you to figure out how to carve out 500 MORE square feet in my house to do the same (NOT POSSIBLE< I know!)...well, a girl can dream, can't she?

Congratulations on the gorgeous studio!
Love you oodles!
