When I was trying to figure out what I wanted my new studio to say to my clients I realized it was much more about how I wanted them to feel. I want to transport them to New York City to the set of Vogue or Vanity Fair magazine. In reality, the studio is located in an collective artists studio in a refurbished old rice mill called The Silos on Sawyer. My style of Intimate Portraits soon became a luxury experience to the women that come through the studio.

Having a studio changed everything about the service I was able to offer my clients. I work in a controlled environment much more conducive to photographing newborns. It's warm and flooded with natural light, it's quiet and serene. It's a comfortable space where parents can truly relax. A makeup artist makes mom feel truly pampered and having a studio wardrobe to borrow clothing from has been wildly popular with my clients. I have everything I need to consistently create beautiful imagery and a wonderfully luxurious experience for my clients!

The studio is housed in a historic cigar factory in downtown Tampa and there are many other visual artists in the spaces there. It has wonderful charm- rumor has it Babe Ruth used to buy his cigars there and it is an important part of Tampa's history. The studio itself has been designed entirely with sessions in mind. It looks like a neutral bedroom- like any house but with a cleanliness that allows me to focus only on the connections of families. It has a canopy that goes all the way around the bed and it is beautiful when used in intimate maternity sessions. It is a soft and special place.

It is exactly what I set out to create! A bright, beautiful, inspiring space that is also very versatile. The biggest challenge was to have a space that could accommodate a full backdrop setup for portraits, a seating area for client consultations, storage solutions for props, camera, and lighting equipment, and also a living space set-up for lifestyle and boudoir sessions. Keeping all of this in mind, I also needed to be able to move the space around easily, so I didn't want to add too many large pieces of furniture. It took a bit of planning and some strategic (and thrifty) shopping, but I am over the moon with the calm, clean, and classic feel of the space!

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 wanted to create a space that was Urban Glam...I think I did just that. The seniors and their families LOVE the space. They always say they could live there. I love that they feel like that are coming to a friend's home. They have dessert and drinks and just plunk into the soft leather couch to watch their slideshow and enjoy their time there.

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.

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.

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.
