The Studio Reveal

So my space is finally at a point where
I can show it to you all.  It’s still a work in progress
but it’s fully functional and being used.  The main thing left to do is
finish decorating the walls.   I do believe more canvas’ will
be ordered this week 😉

I leased this space back in March and
slowly but surely put it together.   I wanted to furnish it
as inexpensively as possible so most of the items are thrifted.
The main splurges were the couch (from Sit N Sleep) and the TV.
The matching chairs came from home.

I made the curtains using inexpensive
Walmart panels.   The round table and chairs and the coffee
table were thrifted and painted.
The area rug is from Urban Outfitters.
The TV dresser is from Goodwill.   I painted it
a fun green and re-used the knobs by spray painting them
a matte black.The shelves are temporary until I
get more matching ones.   I brought the bins from home but
first gave them a fresh coat of paint.Most of the accessories were thrifted also.I always have Jone’s soda for my seniors 😉This place makes me happy when
I walk in the door.  🙂   I use it to meet with
wedding clients, hold pre-consults and ordering sessions with seniors.
I’ve even done a little shooting
in here.  Previously I did all this in my home but as
my business grows this is so much more convenient for
my family and my clients.

My only willing model today. 

Brady’s 5 minute photo shoot

I was really hoping to have a wedding ready to blog this morning but it’s just quite done enough to post.  This will be a super busy week but I’m hoping to have one blogged sometime soon.  So, instead I will leave you with the little dude who spends most of his days with his mama.  I’ve really had the urge to photograph my kids lately.  And that’s a good thing 🙂

I may or may not have bribed him with netflix for this quick shoot….

What to blog about…

It’s been a busy week getting back into a routine (which I love by the way!) and blogging just hasn’t happened much.

And because I didn’t have enough going on I signed up to consign at a 2 day sale at the end of the month.  So yesterday found me tagging and hanging hundreds of items of clothes.  The thing about holding onto your baby clothes is that it is painful to let them go.  But seeing as the only girl in this house is 8 and the youngest boy in this house is almost 4 I think it’s time to clean house.

Some other things on the agenda this fall:

Get back into budgeting and couponing
Meal Planning
Work on the business along with figuring out basic studio lighting
Snuggle with the 3 (almost 4) year old
Enjoy my quiet days and hopefully be productive

I’m pretty sure this was about the most random and possibly most boring blog post I’ve done yet.

Fun Times

Having a little fun with Kirsten the other day.  Standing and posing gets boring so we made it fun.  She loved coming up with her own jumping ideas.
