First off, I have to thank everybody who made it out to the grand opening event. I was not expecting nearly as many people to show up that did, and I am so grateful for all of you. This studio has been a dream of mine for years, and now it is finally a reality! Finding an open retail space in the Claremont Village is not easy, let alone one that would be perfect for a natural light photography studio! I jumped on this space as soon as it became available.
My husband is amazing, he spent almost 2 weeks straight doing everything to get the studio ready to open. He put in new floors, baseboard, painted, cleaned, etc. My dad ran electrical work that was desperately needed as well. I have the most amazing support system of friends and family who came and helped out before the grand opening. Here are some pictures of the journey from beginning to end. (well, almost end..I still have a few things I want to do in there, like get my sign!)
This was 3 nights before the grand opening. My husband and sister were keeping me company while I painted my ikea expedit bookshelf.
Thanks to my mom for providing refreshments!

This is part of the adorable village right outside of the studio. I love downtown Claremont! It has so much character and is perfect for a photography studio.
