I’ve been working hard the last month towards a goal I set for myself when I first started my business. I’ve always dreamed of a natural light studio. Somewhere dedicated I could bring my clients. I still love on location family shoots, but if you’ve had a newborn session by me you know the amount of loot I bring with me. Beanbag, space heater, bags upon bags of blankets, props, flooring, backdrop stand, backdrops, etc. Set up and tear down of a newborn session take quite a bit of time and most importantly I don’t have control of light. Yes, in photography that is THE most important thing. While my business isn’t quite ready to own it’s own location I got to scheming. Anyone that knows me well knows I’m a wee bit obsessed… determined. 🙂 When I set my mind to something I’m doing it, darn it. One day I walked into our attached garage and it hit me. THERE!! It’s the perfect space! So I started making phone calls and asking my handyman extraordinaire husband if I was crazy. (His answer was yes to the crazy question, by the way). But, he knows better than to stifle my excitement. He’s a smart man, I tell ya. It definitely took some work, and I still don’t have photos for the walls (you didn’t really think I’d have completely bare walls did you?).
I am so excited about the potential of this space.
Here’s a youtube video tour!!!!
I’m also extending an introductory special to the first 10 people to book a mini maternity and newborn session at the studio!!! I don’t run specials very often, so don’t think you should just wait for the next special. The first 10 people to book a mini maternity session and newborn session at the studio will receive my 5 digital image package for the maternity session for FREE!! You read that right. Email me for details JenniferMauren@gmail.com. This special doesn’t have an expiration date either. So, if you’re not due until the spring? No problem. As long as the session is booked, you’re in the clear. And, that’s not all!! ::in my best infomercial voice over tone:: Now through 9/30/11. I’m taking $50 off my mini sessions held at the studio!! That means my 5 image package is only $200 and the ALL image package is $400!! Mini sessions are PERFECT for maternity, baby milestones, family holiday images! I do have a beautiful landscaped property. So at the “studio” also includes shooting on property. I’ve held quite a few sessions here actually. (you can thank my husband for our well manicured property, that’s not my specialty).
And because no post of mine would be complete without some photos! Here ya go! This is sweet Hayden. He was 3 weeks exactly and was AWESOME. Older newborns can be tricky and he totally rocked. His mom and I danced together years ago (in what feels like another lifetime). I love working with old friends!
