Inside Real Studios: Domus Aurea Portraits

Inside Real Studios: Domus Aurea Portraits

About eight years ago, I was reading a recipe blog and somehow ended up on the blogger’s photography posts. I spent a ton of time going through her photography posts and just couldn’t stop thinking about how I had to give it a try too! My husband (who is amazingly supportive) got on board immediately and we bought a camera. From there, I read, practiced, and photographed family and friends, and it naturally spiraled into what it has become today.

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. We collect unique props from around the world to complement our cute little clients.

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.

How To Stay Sane In The Insane Holiday Season

How To Stay Sane In The Insane Holiday Season

The holidays. 

Can you believe they’re just around the corner...again? It seems like it was just yesterday when we were stuffing ourselves with last year’s festive treats, bundling up against the cold, and bracing ourselves for Aunt Mildred (you know who we mean - there’s one in every family).

You know it, creatives: things are about to get crazy. Your inbox emplodeth, and your phone doth hellishly ring. Not to get all Shakespearean about it, but an overflow of good converts to bad.

So how do you manage it all? When the long view looks bleak (which, in reality, means from now until late December), what will your coping mechanisms be?

Having a studio has definitely set us apart from other photographers by showing that we mean business and clients know that when they approach us. Since having the studio, it has limited the number of people approaching us on little-to-no budget simply because clients know we have business expenses.

Having the studio has also definitely helped me deliver consistency in our images, which helped our studio to have identifiable signature style on our images. Being in Dubai also means shooting outside during the summer can prove very difficult. So I am relieved that I won't have to put my clients under the 45C (113F) degree heat for sessions.

My goal in renovating my studio was to provide better customer service, superior products and a more streamlined process for my bride and grooms. I use many Design Aglow products in my studio to achieve this beginning with the Big Picture Planner to keep me organized. I use the Pricing Menus to provide a tangible pricing guide to my clients during consultations and sales appointments. In every package I include the digital images from the weddings on the glass USB packaged in the presentation boxes and branded bags.

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!
