I often wish I had a small studio space. We just left Hudson and while we got lucky and sold our home…we didn’t find one first. That being said, we’re not totally set on one area, so opening a studio isn’t the best idea yet.
So I continue to travel.
Then I talk to new Moms and they say how much they love that I travel to them. That they don’t have to pack up a new baby. Diapers. Extra clothes. Whatever they may want in the session. Maybe other children. That they don’t have to worry about getting ready to go out (some like to get ready to be in the pictures, but often, they finish up while I’m working with baby already). That they get to feed baby in the comfort of their own home. Sometimes we sit and chat while baby is fed. Sometimes they go to their room or the nursery and have some quiet time while I take a moment to check out my email.
As much as I would love to have a studio. I’m never 100% sure I ever will. Part of what I do it to make sure my clients are comfortable and happy throughout the entire process of working with me. If that means going to their home, then that’s what I do. It also means part or all of your session can be completely tailored to you.
I can use your home. Your walls. Your furniture. Your blankets. The babies room. Mom and Dad’s room. The backyard. Whatever you want. And then your session becomes that much more about your story. Sure, I’ll bring my stuff too, but by traveling to my clients, they have the opportunity to tailor their session to tell as much about them as they want.
In the newborn session that follows, those are the wood floors and the walls in the home. Not backdrops. Not a studio. That’s their dog. Not a prop And we have pictures from their family room as well.
So maybe one day, I’ll have a studio to call my own. And maybe I won’t. If I ever do, I’m sure I’ll always travel. And no matter what, I’ll always strive to make your session tell you story.
Till next time, enjoy a few adorable baby pictures from last November.
(Yep, that means just December is left to catch up and then I can finally start blogging about 2013!)
