What makes your studio special?
I can't get over the natural light that floods in through the 8 foot windows. It's something that constantly inspires me, even when I'm not shooting that day. Natural light is such a mood and confidence booster, so when I'm photographing boudoir sessions with my brides, or even photographing a little baby, that natural light brings everyone at ease. It's so peaceful.

How has it helped your business?
Opening my little studio inside my home has helped my business tremendously. I blog a lot of personal things, so I feel like my clients already know me more than they may know any of their other vendors, per say. When I invite them into my home, I'm letting them in just a little bit more. I think that's important - it builds trust. And trust is everything when you're working closely with clients. It's also served as a great Plan B option! Weather isn't always accommodating, so it's been lovely to have my studio as an alternative space to get some really beautiful images.

Do you have any tips for opening a studio?
Make it unique, comfortable and keep it neutral. I opted for a lot of subtle colors within this space so I'm able to accommodate just about any color palette that my clients bring over.

What products do you sell the most?
Fine art prints and 8x8 linen albums. They're so beautiful and I take a lot of pride in the design elements of creating the perfect album.

Do you use Design Aglow products in your studio? If so, which product(s), and how have they helped your sales?
Not yet, but I am so in love with your Paper Shop. I can't wait to include it in my marketing!

My cozy studio is located in my home in Bentonville, AR. It is easily my favorite spot in the house and my clients feel just as special coming here because of how comfortable and welcoming it is. When we decided to build our home we had the builders close off the (what would have been) garage, add a separate entrance, and we went to work ourselves, finishing it up with shiplap, painted concrete floors, and my props and wall art to decorate the space. I couldn't be more in love with how it all turned out.
