The BIG BIG NEWS! | Baltimore photography portrait studio

Okay, we have been busy busy busy busy!!!  My email boxes are so full right now, it’s unbelievable, and I promise, all will be answered and taken care of today.  I have a shoot first thing this morning, and I will spend the rest of the day answering emails and phone calls.  We finished up our first childrens/baby/maternity photography workshop of the year on Friday (we only have a few seats left for workshops this year – – Our furthest attendee is coming from the UK – how fun is that! :))

At any rate, the big big news?  What is the big big news?  Well, I was getting ready to sign another lease for my current studio, and right before we started shooting for the next Similac ad in November, I happened upon another studio situation.  It all seemed too good to be true, but there it was, staring me in the face, and I had to make a decision.

Yes, we are moving into the new studio in February.  It is about a minute or two down the street from the current studio.  We will be using this entire building, and it sits on 8 beautiful private acres.  The gentleman who has renovated this building, has done a tremendous job.   Here’s a picture.

Here are two little “storyboards” of the decor going in the shooting area and the coffee-shop-style kitchen…

Needless to say, we’ve been placing orders on furniture, we have 34 gorgeous canvases that will be hung all over the building (I finally have great wall space), I have all new photography sets coming – everything from a shabby chic look to barnwood to stonework, and spring… wow, spring is going to be amazing shooting outdoors. We even have a stream going through the property!

So get ready, while I am still booking sessions right now, most are taking place starting the second week of February and we even have some booking up to August, so please contact us to get on this schedule! We also will be having an open house once everything is in place and settled, so stay tuned for the news.


Also, we’re on Facebook —-
