I am beyond excited to finally reveal the new photography studio in Charlotte, NC that I now call my office and client meeting space. I created the space to have a place I could be creative, productive and call my own. I wanted it separate from where I lived so I can really dig deep at the office then turn it off and enjoy my time away from work as well. I have a hard time doing that but having this space has really helped. I also wanted to create a great client meeting area to show my clients all the possibilities they could create in their homes from their custom sessions. My goal with every session is to bring it to life through wall art and keepsake products so my clients can relive their memories every single day. With this new studio, I can do that. Every client gets the unique opportunity to view their images with me while I help them design something amazing for their home.
The studio has been such a labor of love and I couldn’t have done it without so much help from my family and friends. It’s a small space but it took a lot of work to make it a place I love to come every day and bring clients. I’m a big DIY’er so we painted every wall, trim and the ceiling along with the chairs, my desk and 3 other pieces of furniture. I also upholstered 3 awesome thrift store chairs and a cork board with amazing fabric from Front Door Fabrics. There are many personal touches that came as gifts from friends like the pillow with my logo from Emily. My Mom tracked down anything I loved on Craigslist including the beautiful white rug that I’ve already stained. Melissa surprised me with great coffee mugs in my colors and the cream and sugar holders. My better half got a blue Keurig for the space and dad, of course, hung everything and put my shelving up. It all came together much better than I imagined. I get excited to come to my office every morning and love having visitors.
I hope you’ll join us tomorrow for the grand opening! You can drop in any time between 5pm and 8pm to check out the space and sign up to win a $1,200 photography package.
