New Photo Studio Space!

My initial concept for Picturpaint Studios was to use my 1908-built row house as live/work space to paint, showcase my art, edit photos and meet with clients. I’ve always loved doing photo shoots on location vs. in studio, so I thought, hey, let’s just roll with that.

But then the inevitable happened: I decided that in fact I do need a studio space for shoots! So, we’ve expanded! Well, sort of…

My home’s front room, with its high, curved ceilings and its large windows, vintage floors and antique trim, is now up and running and ready for photo taking. I’m so excited about the beautiful, diffused natural light and the mix of simplicity and texture! I’m a little less excited about the dining room table in my living room, but it’s only temporary, and well, this is a good exercise in letting go of perfection and embracing the concept of working with what you have.

The best part? My beautiful dog model/business partner Maeby (@sweetpeastudiodog) will be here to greet you and make you laugh during your shoot.

Of course, I’m still booking location shoots too! Email or direct message me for more info…
