Studio Update

OK, Folks.  We are officially in the decorating stage of the studio, so this means no more photos until it is complete!  The walls have been painted, the lighting installed and we are onto trim and furniture!  This is where I get to take over the reins!  YIPPEE!
Right now I find myself overwhelmed by storage solutions and fabric swatches....Any of you interior designers out there willing to work out a barter system?!  OOO - and landscapers too!
I am amazed at what the Farmer has accomplished on this project.  He has worked long hours, deep into the night in order to provide this space for my work and my wonderful clients.  He believes in this project.  In me.  For that I will be eternally grateful.  What a man.

The Burton Family + 1

The Burton Family plus one.  The "One", to soon join them in just five short weeks!
Between this beautiful Mama and her darling little one's, I had a hard time leaving this shoot!  They were a joy to work with, even daring to run outside on this snowy morning for some family portraits in the back yard - short sleeves and all!

Studio Update

Getting Closer!! It was all I could do yesterday to wait until the drywall men finished their day's work so I could run out and get some photos of the new space!! 

This is the new "office" area - room for a desk and computer and large workspace tables against the wall.

Waiting area/display area

Shooting space

More shooting space!  I am totally in love with the light in this room!!

I will keep you all posted as we progress in the next few weeks!
