My newborn photography studio is finally finished! I officially opened my home boutique studio on January 19th, but the last finishing touches were added on Friday (then I left town for a couple of days for my birthday) so you now get to see it! This has been a long-time dream, and I’m so excited to share it with you!
Though it was designed specifically with newborns in mind, I can also use this studio for children up to two years old. We can even do cake smash sessions for one-year-olds with a white seamless backdrop!
Okay, enough talking… here it is!
This is the on the wall to the right as you come in! A large selection of my newborn hats! Have a few more stashed away…
Straight ahead of the entrance, there’s a table displaying some of my photos and holding some goodies. Above the table, is one of my two favorite things in the studio – a custom-designed frame from my friend, Jayne, of Sugar Bea Art!
I love this frame because she made it all about me! Jayne finds antique and vintage pieces and puts them together into frames and other pieces of art which she sells in her Etsy store and at trunk and vendor shows. We wrote back and forth several times on Facebook to discuss the pieces she was finding. I told her about all the things I loved – Jane Austen, lace, all things girly, and she would ask me how I felt about this and that. Here are some detail photos…
I love how unique it is! The two quotes are from Jane Austen – “Till this moment, I never knew myself” and “Indulge your imagination in every possible flight” – both from Pride & Prejudice.
That wall cling above the couch was a complete pain to put up. It’s like one giant sticker! At one point, it collapsed on itself into a small ball and we had to stretch the entire thing out again. That blue mark at the top is from my jeans when I was kneeling on a corner of it to stretch out a wrinkle in the middle. Hey, it’s a story now! It shows the various sizes of prints so that you can tell what they look like when they’re up on a wall.
I bought the template for the wall cling from Design Aglow. Thanks to my awesome hubby for helping me put it up and keeping me calm as we unfurled the great big sticker ball.
But here’s where the magic happens! Two different setups to the left of the changing table. This is also where I set up the newborn bean bag and the blanket backdrops.
The wooden backdrop was made by my father-in-law last week! It’s the other one of my two favorite things! Here’s an action shot!
I did the amazing staining afterwards. 😉 Yay, me! Imagine your cute little baby here!
My first client in my studio was little Adriana pictured here:
All of this, combined with hanging out with my family, helped to make for an excellent birthday for me (Feb 16th)!
