The New Studio

20090730-Warehouse-005

The past couple weeks have been adventurous! After viewing an old warehouse space as a potential studio on Main Street in Charlottesville two weeks ago, I fell in love! I asked the owner to let me in immediately – with a big portrait session coming up, I was dying to shoot somewhere other than my in-home studio. At that point, the building, built in the 1930’s, had not been used for anything other than industrial needs: it had been a car dealership, a construction equipment rental place, and a mechanic’s shop. Each owner had taken decent care of the place, and so the only thing we had to deal with the day of the shoot was the excessive dust – but my client did not miss a beat! She was thrilled to be in the new space, and we had a great time!

Since then, I’ve completed a series of projects to clean it up a bit, including power-washing the brick walls, ripping down various wooden walls and shelves installed by previous tenants, and putting a fresh coat of white paint on everything. It is now much cleaner and brighter, and I cannot wait to share it with everyone!

In celebration of my new studio, I will be having an open house within the next couple weeks for clients, friends, and families (exact date and time TBA). I will also be having a BIG Célébrez-Moi event on September 12th exclusively for affordable intimate portrait sessions! Check out the flyer here, and email me to reserve a space!
