Inside Real Studios: Marta Schmidt Fotografia

Clients say that the space really shows who I am and it makes them feel as if they know me already. They also say that my photography style and the decor really match. I love the space because there is usually room for the whole family, and they feel comfortable enough to leave things around and the kids that are waiting can play in another area.

Inside Real Studios: Mellow Yellow Photography

It JUST got finished over a week ago, but I know this space is going to help showcase my best work, and personality. Not only is it going to be a fabulous space to meet clients and hold ordering sessions, but it is such a calm, relaxing space to work. I have already got more work done in a day than I normally do in a week ;) I just want to be in here.

Inside Real Studios: Maryjanes & Galoshes Photography

Stick to (and INVEST IN) your vision. I spent time on Pinterest pinning what I loved that I thought I would like in a studio. Once I had a good collection, I went through the board to find the common themes and see what it was that I was drawn to. Then I edited out the pins that didn't fit and built on that. I referred to the board all the time to make sure I was sticking with the look and feel I wanted. There were several times along the way that someone would try to convince me to make a change, paint the trim another color, pick a different piece of furniture, buy a cheaper option..... or I would question myself regarding whether or not I could pull it off. I could not be happier that I stuck with my vision and went with my gut.

My new natural light studio has helped me tremendously in growing my business. Not only does it give me a wonderful alternative to our insanely fluctuating Texas weather, but it's allowed me the room to expand and offer so many other options to my clients. I'm able to carry out my large, styled mini sessions throughout the year.. even when it's 109 degrees outside.
