My new studio

This post has been a long time coming. I finally got around to taking some pics of my new studio. The first photo was taken over the winter- the before photo. My husband opened up our whole 3rd floor. He took down ceilings, walls, doors, exposed a brick wall, and installed a skylight to give it a bright open feeling. I can't believe it's finally complete! Shawn has done so much for my dreams and career, I love him so much! I have the space to do small studio shoots and also a meeting place for brides. It feels so good to be working from home in a space that is private from the rest of the house and so beautiful. I am so grateful.

BEFORE


AFTER!






This room was a kitchen.






My favorite part is this hairpin fence that Shawn salvaged and painted white. There use to be a hallway, wall and door here.


This hanging window was found in the basement and was the original front door to the house.




I love these. Ikea has this great new color in their frosted glass cabinets- turquoise!










While the move from my storefront in Northern Liberties was sad it was a good decision to come home. I have struggled with whether to write about this since I try to keep my personal life separate but I just have to brag! I am 30 weeks pregnant and can't wait to meet my son! I did not post about it earlier because I was afraid people would not hire me thinking I would be on maternity leave. I am doing good and still shooting. I plan on taking the month of August off.
