Our New Studio!

Here's our finished new studio space!! I wanted a comfortable living room like feel that is bright and open.  Since we do mostly on location shooting, it's not your typical photography studio.  I did design in though so that if I want to shoot I can use every inch of space, have to maximize!  The brick wall is awesome for headshots or a quick industrial look and the funky wall papered wall is great for a totally different texture.  This space is the main reason that we built our house, because it's really hard to find something in an already built house with a separate entrance and connected but separate space.  All the artwork is hung on a wire system so it can be removed or re-arranged easily without drilling holes in the walls.  Since the rest of the house is coastal chic, I wanted to do modern NY loft style but I couldn't do it!  Still going along with the shabby chic theme is the furniture and wood mantle you see below the monitor.  The sofa and chair I literally looked for like 6 months to find something like this and almost spent a ton of money on a custom piece when I found this set on craigslist for next to nothing.  It's great because I can easily fit them in our suv to take them on shoots as well.  This is the only space in the house with dark dark hardwood floors just to distinquish it as a sepaparte space as well.  There's an attached full bath as for our clients as well.  It's a smaller space so tricky to photography but has a vessel sink, tile mosaic around the mirror and blue painted cabinets with a huge drawer for storage.
