My friend Paula came over with her daughters Jordan, 4 years, and Lilah, 1 month. They were my new studio guinea piggies, and they definitely presented me with lots of opportunity and lots of challenge. The following day, my client Lee visited with her adorable son Austin, 10 months-- he was the first "real" shoot in the new space.
I couldn't be happier! I'm really looking forward to utilizing the studio space for more infant, maternity, and boudoir shoots. I still have a few steps to take in regards to final setup (need somehooks to hang things from, and to build some frames for the backdrop fabrics) but it's going really well. My style will remain as it's always been-- focused on the subject, with minimal props/backgrounds to distract. In looking for fabrics, I'll seek out patterns that are simple and classic.
Here are a few of the images from those first two shoots:
