Celebrating a New Space (and a cute baby) | Carolina Beach Photographer

I'm so pleased to announce that I have a new natural light studio! Back in March I started renting a space above LeSoleil http://livebythesun.com/ in Carolina Beach to use as a gallery/showroom. It's been working great as a place to showcase some of my work, and also as a place to meet with clients (since I'm now offering in-person proofing!) Well, I've been thinking for a while that, although small, there was some beautiful light in the room most of the time. I think it could be the ideal location for mini-sessions for older kids (that don't need a lot of running room) or babies that aren't running yet! So, I went looking for a subject to photograph - I needed a baby that was sitting up, but not yet crawling - and I found the perfect one. You met P back in December when she was just 4 weeks old http://danajacksonphotography.blogspot.com/2008_12_01_archive.html. She was the perfect candidate - she is almost 7months old - sitting beautifully, and lives right around the corner from me and the studio! Perfection!

So, if you're still reading.....welcome to my studio! These are all natural light portraits - and I'm sooooooo excited!

Now, P is a very serious girl - but finally by the end she let the smiles out! Thanks so much Laurie for letting me borrow P!




I'd love to hear what you think - so please leave comments! And if you want to book a session for this awesome space - just let me know!!!!
