An Excerpt from KATh’s Blog
Where it all began...
When I first started Newborn and Baby Photography, my first studio was actually Piper's bedroom. There was no room for props or more than 3 people! It was teeny TINY but as I was just starting out with close to no props, it was perfect! My light source were the East facing windows which meant the light constantly changed in the morning, It was always a case of adjusting the curtains while in the middle of a shoot. The more I practiced, the more I understood my light and I knew I needed a South facing window.
Then came my second studio which was the lounge, located at the front of the house and the windows were South facing! It was also wide enough that I can have two set up going at the same time and even fit a sofa for my clients. I had a small cupboard and my props fit perfectly! The new studio was almost perfect except for the toilet being towards the inner part of the house. My clients have to go through my house to use the toilet and to be honest it is quite hard to get a house clean and tidy with a baby around.
John then suggested to move the studio into our MAIN bedroom and it made perfect sense as there was an ensuite for my clients and a walk in robe for my growing collection of props. I tell you, my husband is my biggest supporter and only he can sacrifice the comfort of our bedroom and ensuite for my passion. He even built an internal door half way through the hallway so when clients come in, they can't see the mess on the other side of the house and for privacy purpose too. It was perfect! Life was good for a year! Then one day, I photographed twins who came with their parents and grandma. I also had a photographer friend help me that day. We were constantly bumping into each other, it was crowded. That's when it dawned on me, I need a bigger studio!
