A Godly Studio

They say cleanliness is godliness.
*errr-herrrm*
I have to say I have always been an untidy person. My dad and husband will agree vehemently! Not that I am proud of it but I have never had a tidy desk in the workplace, nor a tidy bedroom, nor a tidy wardrobe, nor a tidy bag, not even a tidy desktop on my computer! :s And obviously the studio is not so tidy too hehe :p

Well since our move from Devonshire, we have been busy shooting and processing that we haven't really done any space planning and thus there are still boxes lying about with photo frames not put up yet etc. Yesterday I took the first steps to start getting organised by going to Ikea with Dylan in the pouch, Charlene and my in laws in tow too. We managed to buy some shelving and filing cabinets, a new reception table and a wardrobe for the fabrics in the studio. Furniture arrives tomorrow then the fun begins.

***edited on 29th Oct to include the photos below, all taken with the LX3***

AFTER:




check out the gigantic canvas we printed on the left wall :p it's 1.5m x 0.75m!




and that's our new open concept wardrobe on the left


We also changed the backdrops today. The chestnut background has now been replaced with an almond one. It looks great lighted, sort of a happy pale yellow. As usual our demo unit Dylan was shot against it once we got it up. Will post a photo soon.

Anyway we look forward to welcoming you to our newly improved and godly studio :)

Hey Maryann,

It's me, Jayne! You shot my pregnancy shots last year with Felix... Congrats on your baby boy and new studio! Love your blog and all the great pics. And took the plunge to get the LX3 after reading your review. What a great P&S it is! Take care and will look you up for a family portrait sometime later. :-)
