As Lens 2 Life enters its third year in business, I decided some changes were in order. After the holiday mini sessions, I realized that with living in the midwest I really can’t rely on shooting using natural light alone. Therefore, my first change will be the introduction of studio lighting. Now, I don’t want to get too crazy with artificial light, but I do find it necessary at times to achieve sharp and noiseless images. Once I introduced artificial light into my studio, I then discovered that there just isn’t enough room in my tiny studio to work! It was time to move into a larger studio. My husband and I had always threatened the kids that if they didn’t keep their playroom clean, we would take it away. Well, it was time to follow through, especially since that place is usually a disaster no matter what Pinterest organizational idea I tried! This week I moved my kid’s toys into my old studio, which Madison and Annie now call “The Girls Den” (poor Sammy), and I renovated the old playroom into a new, larger studio. I am hoping that in making these changes, I will produce more technically sound images as well as be able to move around more to get your little ones laughing and smiling for their shoot. There will be some other changes with packages and policies as well in 2015. While I am not ready to share that information just yet, I do plan to have my website updated with the information within the next few weeks. I hope you and your family have a happy and healthy New Year!
Out with the old and in with the new. My kids get a new play area or “Girl’s Den.”
The renovations begin. The walls and trim were painted. It took almost four coats to completely cover that blue, and new flooring was laid down.
The new studio is complete and I’m already moved in.
