We have a Home Studio!!!

Here’s a public service announcement – We now have a little home studio!!!

What’s the big deal, you might ask. Well let me explain-

#1- Cost

Most studio rentals charge anywhere from $50-200/ hr for renting out a space. That has been my experience atleast here in Minneapolis. Alot of times, equipments are part of the hourly fee. But many times, its not! So by creating a little space at home with a simple lighting system can help me cut that cost and infact put it towards other fun camera gadgets or that trip I have been oh so waiting for, well that’s a win in my books!

#2- Helps you stay warm in the winter months!

In Minnesota, the harsh winters make it incredibly difficult to take pictures outside, let alone having a model dressed in a beautiful dress and have her freezing and shivering the entire time. Does not make for a great picture taking experience for both parties involved. Having a home studio solves that problem!


#3- Get a chance for loads of practice!

I am fairly new to studio lighting and really started to get into it and learn it last year. But I would only get a chance to practice it, when I paid for it for client shoots. That restricted my practice sessions down to maybe 1 or 2 a month! And if you want to get good at something, we all know that “practice maketh a man perfect”! Now with an at home studio, even if I do not have a client shoot, my amazingly good looking husband and kids willingly volunteer as subjects for me – Exhibit A (see photos below – that’s my man!)


Now granted, this space in our basement is tight and will be able to fit only 1 person at any given time. But it works great for interesting and fun headshots!

So if you are looking for a space to get some headshots taken, reach out to me ASAP – see CONTACT section!

Thank you for taking the time to read this post! If you liked it, do share it with your friends and family on social media of choice! I would appreciate it very much.

I’ll see you guys again in my next fun post! 🙂
