Nearing eight years at this point in my portrait photography career. Did I ever envision myself saying those exact words?! Not a chance! But... here we are. When I turned the calendar on year seven, I silently thought, "uh oh... should I be nervous about experiencing a 'seven-year-itch?!'" No. No. Not at all. Well, I wish I were completely confident in saying that I wasn't nervous at that thought. And then I remembered somebody saying that every seven years our body chemistry (to some form of degree) goes through changes. Huh. Okay then. I'm starting to see a correlation here. I've felt restless for some time now, wanting to expand my photography offerings by opening a portrait studio. A place that is well lit with natural light, where I can create in a more climate-controlled environment, and that is beautiful to me. I looked around for a while, imagining myself opening a Main Street style studio. But it didn't seem to fit for me. And then one day it dawned on me (the "Light Bulb Moment" when God whispers in your ear) - Hey, why not open an in-home studio and just see if it's a good fit -- for me, my family and my client-friends. I talked it over with my family and they were on board from my initial pitch! They truly are that good to me. They have more confidence in me than I have in myself.
So... here we are almost 2 months into the planning stages of rearranging, purging/cleaning out, painting, prepping our home for the S T U D I O space!!! Gah!!! I'm beyond excited to announce this to you...
I am opening an in-home portrait studio!!! Did I just say that out loud?!!! Yes. Yes, I did! :)
I'd like to present to you, my Opening Weekend Studio Kickoff Event with Holiday Portraits!! Happening Saturday & Sunday, November 4 & 5 from 1pm - 6pm. I'm taking 15 minute sittings, every half hour. There will be door prizes (some incredible goodies to giveaway!), light refreshments, and lots of FUN! There's a $35 minimum print order due at the time of your gallery reveal appointment, which will be within 1 - 2 weeks of your portrait date. Simple as that. Gather up the family, come out to see the new studio space, get a few images made with yours truly, have some fun and laughs, then you're on your way! You'll book a separate appointment to come back to view your gallery and make your print selections, design holiday greeting cards, etc. and everything will be delivered to your doorstep within 3 days.
I enlisted my precious models to help me with some ideas I had to shoot in the studio, and they came through like champs for me! This is the backdrop I will have set up for the Kickoff weekend event! I'm thinking festive holiday scene for you!
The girls even posed for me later that night, in their PJs just before bed. I am loving this light too!
Lucy, our cat, even got in on the action!
I'm looking forward to hearing from you with your preferred date/time to reserve your mini-portrait session at the Studio! I still can't believe I'm announcing this and am moving ahead with this dream come true. It promises to be *merry* fun for all! Thank you for continuing to support the arts and your local photographers, like me!
