Since my family relocated, I’ve had the opportunity to start fresh with designing my studio space! I’m so excited to share a peek inside for this studio tour post!
I’ve loved working in this new space! My husband Spencer painted the walls gray for me, and I love how it turned out! I wanted a shade that was neutral, but I wanted slightly warm undertones that wouldn’t cause cool color casts on skin in my portrait work. I feel like this color turned out perfect! It’s exactly what I was looking for, and I even use the gray walls as a backdrop.
I love how this room is structured, because I could really have 3 different setups along one wall, with my newborn posing beanbag on the other side if I needed to. It’s perfect for newborns and young milestones!
All the Props
I have lots of options for props, wraps, headbands, and little outfits that can be used during your session. I keep the most requested items conveniently stored in the studio. There may or may not be a few additional prop items tucked away in my office closet. (I have a slight problem with loving to buy cute props.) Those gray boxes are filled with texture layers, silk florals, little outfits, teddies, posing pillows, etc. My studio has everything we will need for your newborn session, and there is no need for you to worry about any of these items.
I LOVE wraps! And so do my newborn clients! Swaddling makes babies so snuggly and comfortable, and it makes for some adorable portraits as well! I’m a neutrals girl, so I have a variety of whites, grays, tans, and browns with different textures. I love how timeless neutrals are! Pinks and blues are also popular, so I keep those handy, too!
I have a similar selection of backdrops for beanbag posing. They are hand selected to be cohesive and look great together! One of my personal favorites is a white backdrop with a baby wearing white. I just think it looks so pure and beautiful!
I host the most precious little guests in my studio and take sanitation very seriously to protect them. I’m a little OCD about keeping my studio clean and safe for new babies. Every item used during a session gets washed, wiped, or disinfected before it is put away to be used again. I wash all the linens with hypoallergenic detergent. I wipe the props down. Everything from the fluff under the baby to the bonnet on their head is cleaned between sessions. I strive to make my studio a safe and comfortable place for my wonderful guests!
I love working in my new studio, and hope you will enjoy being here during your session, too!
