Capturing Unique Images with Children & Animals

Photographing children and animals together is a great distraction for any child. Most kids hate to sit and pose for photographs. When you add an animal in the mix, they are distracted and focus less on a camera in their face. These types of sessions feel more like playtime than a photography session!    I get the best interaction shots when I ask the child to find the animal's nose or look at their ears.

Our studio marries the best of an industrial loft with boutique elegance. We had the opportunity to design the floor plan, pick the finishes, and make it our own. We both love interior design, so we loved the process of designing and decorating our space and really feel at home here.

Inside Real Studios: Emily Lapish Photography

It's made a huge difference to have a professional studio space where I can host events, hold consultations, teach workshops, and shoot through the cold winter months (when in the past, clients would wait til the warmer months to book). Tangible products are very important to me both as an artist and a businessperson, and having a studio allows me to showcase my favorite Design Aglow frame collections and albums, as well as huge canvases. We've all heard the phrase "Show what you want to sell" and it definitely rings true; clients don't know that an 11x14 print is small until they see my 38x46 canvas on the wall - and it *doesn't* look huge!

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.
