Photographing newborns are my passsion. So much so that I have tried to create a space that lends itself to the utmost success for every session. When my husband and I were looking for our home, back in early 2011, this space was one of the main reasons that I loved this home. In fact, I wasn’t really sold on the home except for that! I have grown to love the entire house as our family has made it our own and I have set out to make this bottom floor an amazing space for photographing newborns and making my mommy & daddy’s comfortable. In fact, one of my mommy’s recently sent me this email: “Oh my gosh! Yay!!! Again you’re awesome! Michael and I can’t stop talking about how comfortable we felt!”

To begin, here is the panoramic view of the studio. As you can see, it has so much beautiful natural light streaming in. It was a mother in law suite so it is equipped with a full kitchen so I can keep refreshments on hand and the living area is now my studio and office. I love the lightness and brightness of the windows. This is the actual studio part-the studio also has a dedicated restroom, a separate room for breastfeeding, and a cool & comfortable space for parents to put their feet up, watch television, and relax while I take care of the baby!
For my backdrop I have reclaimed barnwood that I have whitewashed on one side and left a beautiful, rustic natural oiled look on the other, along with hand scraped wood floors.
I love being able to display my fabulous product offerings so that clients can really see them in person and feel and touch them. For me, it helps me decide what fits in my personal spaces as far as color and texture and overall appearance.
This is my desk where all the editing magic takes place. I recently switched out my fall family images for fun beach shots of my children because of this fabulous warm weather we have been having. The images on the wall (the beach images) are metallic stand outs in a 20×30 and 3-16×24’s.
And I may have a bit of a prop habit-I was featured in Confessions of a Prop Junkie last year probably because of that! My husband just shakes his head when the FedEx truck pulls up 😉
I found this large piece of driftwood one day when my hubby, the kids, & I were out in the bay on the boat. At the time I had no idea why I wanted it, what I would do with it but I knew I’d find the right spot. I would love to do a chandelier with it if I can figure that out!
This spring I have been all about gardening and have quite the herb garden going. I am loving mint water all the time now!
And I am always crushing on my Organic Bloom frames! You gotta check them out-Rachel is amazing to work with!
I am a Southern Girl from birth so a mason jar can be added to just about anything 😉 I had this neat but plain light fixture in the foyer so what did I do? Added some mason jars with the help of my hubby.
