My home studio is in our room over the garage in our little home in North Charleston. It was my husband’s man cave until I finally won the battle to take it over, it took me a year. Clients can relax on the couch and watch tv, or entertain themselves on the studio ipad, or on your own device during your session. The room is kept around 80 degrees during all newborn sessions. Clients are encouraged to bring some drinks, and lunch or snacks.
It has taken me a while to “find my style” and I’m not sure I have truly found it yet. I love a natural style with a hint of props. I love these little balls of cuteness dolled up in hats and accessories, but I truly love the newborn being the focus of my work rather than a prop, but I do love to play. When working with a newborn I will typically get the shot without hats, and then I will add the hat, or headband. I prefer creams, whites, tans, mauves, but I love to play with a pop of bold color too. I love a variety of texture, vintage looks, and lace, I am obsessed with soft delicate knits from bonnets, headbands, and stretchy wraps. I recently taught myself to knit and have started making my own bonnets, big bump blankets, and several of my mini blankets to incorporate into my photography style. My soft props are all handmade by myself or purchased at Etsy from a pool of talented artist here in locally all over the country , and overseas. My favorite etsy artists for my knits and crocheted props that I use come from countries like Belgium, England, Lithuania, Romania, South Africa, and Ireland.
