What makes your studio special?
Character. I LOVE my tiny hole in the wall for its charm! The studio is located in the heart of Melbourne's historic downtown shopping district and sits quietly above my favorite coffee shop. When I walked into the space, the first thing I noticed was the old sink and I immediately wanted to take it out. That sink is now my favorite piece in the whole room. I worked it into the gallery wall as a vase and it then inspired the rest of the decor! I created the desk and dress rack entirely from plumbing pipes and lumber to match and then finished the space with a stamp from my branding in purple accessories. It's bright, quirky, and cozy!

How has it helped your business?
As a wedding photographer, consultations are a major part of my booking experience. Opening the studio has allowed me to make a professional first impression. I also love that my clients get to touch the tangible products that I have to offer and see for themselves the worth in my design and printing services. I get to sit down with my couples and create albums and wall art together and then witness their emotional reactions with the finished products.

Do you have any tips for opening a studio?
Do the research on tax and license laws for your specific area before signing a lease. I was definitely caught off guard and paid for it in penalties!

What products do you sell the most?
Albums are my biggest seller followed closely by prints.

Well, hello! I'm a boudoir and wedding photographer from Pennsylvania; I am based in both in Philadelphia and in the mountains of Northeast, PA. I have a love for shooting film, vivid colors, fluffy dogs, salty snacks, binge watching Netflix, sarcasm, and napping. My road to becoming a photographer isn't a very poetic or adventurous story: I was a painter and had always pursued the thought of going to school for fine art. I took an introduction to film photography class in my senior year of high school and just fell in love with the medium. I've pursued my own photography business ever since and am still shooting with film!

One thing we love about living in Portland is the strong emphasis on sustainability and a genuine concern for the environment. The natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest has obviously inspired locals to care and take action, to protect the lushness surrounding them. The name of the game here is conservation and preservation - with multiple trash/recycle/compost bin options in every restaurant and coffee shop, to chicken coops adorning backyards aplenty. We’re so pleased to see this positive trend hit the design and technology spheres, as hard copies become a thing of the past and the Cloud becomes the Internet’s new storage bin.

I’m Cheyenne, and I’m a body positive, self love boudoir photographer based in Philadelphia. I love my mama, my puppy girl Penny, my babe, and cheesesteaks. When I was 13, I picked up my first camera. Two years later I started a little business photographing families, babies, and a very tiny wedding! I continued to shoot through my time in art school and eventually decided to fully dive into creating a well rounded business for myself. I left college after my junior year and worked my butt off to build up my business.
