Today we're peeking inside the studio of Suzanne Puttman of Click by Suzanne:
Where, and in what kind of space is your studio located?
I have a residential space in Portland, Oregon
How long have you been there?
What makes your studio special?
It is a detached space off our main house. It has a very clean, comfortable feeling with all the amenities that a studio needs. A couch and seating for clients, a changing table, lots of layout space, a bathroom and lots of shelves for props and blankets. The original garage wood is one of a kind and over 75 years old!
How has it helped your business?
It has been a huge selling point. I have everything clients need; they don't need to bring a thing...except a well fed happy baby that is!
Do you have any tips for opening a studio?
Just do it! It takes a couple of years to acquire all the fun little details that will make it your own. We have built all the shelving over time, added furniture when I could afford it and then found a table that would be long enough to fit the South facing wall. Word of mouth is huge in letting future clientele that you have a nice, clean, and safe studio. It has been a blast!
