Today we take a peek inside the studio of Kelli Dease Photography:
In what kind of space is your studio located?
How long have you been there?
What makes your studio special? My studio is located inside a renovated factory building in historic downtown Collinsville in Connecticut. The landmark building once housed an ax factory, but has since been converted into small offices and artists studios. Many of the original features of the building, including the freight elevator that carries clients up to my studio, are still in use, making for an eclectic and unique space!
How has it helped your business?
Your studio should reflect your brand. My space is modern yet classic, with a soft, feminine feel. It is also very quiet and private, which is essential when working with newborns.
What products do you sell the most?
Digital files, prints, albums, canvases, storyboards and image boxes.
Do you use Design Aglow products in your studio? If so, which product(s), and how have they helped your sales?
I use Finishing Touch Borders in all of my albums and am about to launch a new line of birth announcements, but haven't decided which template set I'd like to use yet!

Hi! Tell us a little bit about yourself. What was your road like to becoming a photographer?
Hello! I am a portrait photographer based south of Boston, MA. My passion is capturing mothers and their growing families. Maternity and newborn portraits are the foundation of my business, and I also capture baby milestones, children, and families. Fun fact: I returned the diamond earrings my husband bought me for our first Christmas as a married couple to buy a digital camera.
When I was in college, I had a friend who was a professional photographer. The first time I went to her home, I walked in to find stunning photographs of her children on the walls.
There was a huge canvas in their living room and a creative photo display in the main hallway. I remember being so moved by the beauty of those images, thinking to myself, “I want to create images like this!” I bought myself a DSLR as a graduation present, learned photography from online courses and started my photography business about a year later.
