1. My studio... well, it's kind of amazing.
I am in love with my new studio. It's my happy place. It's pretty and gets gorgeous light. It has everything needed to make beautiful sessions. The space is inspiring and I'm constantly finding new ways to use every nook and cranny. It's the perfect place for every session, whether I'm photographing a little newborn baby or a family of five, it's the perfect backdrop for my clients' families.
2. Fine art prints & albums are my favorite... ever.
I go all out when researching the best possible products to offer my clients, and when I found an opportunity to offer the very best museum quality fine art prints and albums I literally jumped up and down I was so giddy about them. The prints are amazing and gorgeous. Thick beautiful museum quality textured prints that render color beautifully and will last for decades. And the albums are to die for with beautiful thick heavy-weight pages and solid binding.
3. The studio wardrobe is gorgeous.
I started investing in the studio wardrobe last year and I am so in love with it. Every single piece is gorgeous, fits moms beautifully, and photographs like a dream. It's so hard to figure out what to wear for a session, and I'm so happy to be able to take the guesswork out of it for you. Having something beautiful to wear is another way I enjoy pampering clients and it's so much fun to play dress up before we begin.
4. Less is more.
This is true in several areas of my business for 2016. My style is returning to one of simple muted neutral colors, without a lot of fuss or props. This style isn't for everyone, but it makes my heart sing. I'm also trimming back on the number of sessions I take each month. I love you all and I would love to photograph every baby in the world, but it just isn't possible. This year I'm striving for balance. More chances to connect with my husband and son, because I never want to miss out on time with them. Inspired by that, I'm also exploring new ways of giving other moms the same, with beautiful simple portraits with their children and babies.
It's going to be a wonderful year. I can't wait to find out what's in store next.
