A lot of work and love went into this space and it is absolutely perfect! I got the keys on March 1st and opened the doors on April 1st. There are a few more small details to finish – curtains, the inside of the closet, and decor to fill in but it is ready to roll and in action!
The studio is located in Appleton at the Edison Center right on the river and between the locks, such a creative and booming area! I have my own “private” entrance which means that clients won’t need to go through the common space or lobby of the building to find me. The space is almost 800 square feet and divided into two rooms. When you enter you are greeted to the studio and shooting space and the back room is a lounge area used for an office and meetings. Wedding consultations will now take place in a unique, comfortable place – not a busy or noisy coffee shop. My work is displayed and there are plenty of albums and print samples to browse. It’s really the perfect setup!
I snagged this place right when I saw it! I could not turn down all the natural light, the location, or the potential I saw in it. It was in ROUGH shape when we started, we literally had to touch every single inch of the place in some way. Cleaning and washing took up the majority of the work and some fresh paint did wonders to the place. After refinishing the floor in the back room and completely replacing the front floor, we were ready to go with furniture and decorating! Oh and let’s not forget about the amazing closet that, Chris, my boyfriend built to cover up the grungy utility sink and create more storage.
The studio will be used mostly for boudoir and branding sessions, wedding consults, and of course, a designated office space for me to work! I am so excited to have a place of my very own that is completely my style and unique vision!
Take a look around and of course, please visit if you are ever nearby! I would love for you to see this magical place in person!
