It has been all go the past couple of weeks getting everything ready for you. The studio still looks a little like a building site, but everything will be singing and dancing by the 12th April. Fingers crossed this date sticks!
So what have we been doing? If you’ve been to the studio at all recently, you’ll have seen how many props we have to hand these days – it has got a little bit crazy! We have baskets and boxes coming out of our ears and enough maternity dresses to dress half of Lancaster.
Over lockdown I’ve devoured one or two DIY and tidying up series on Netflix as well as stalking some amazing photography studios around the world. The inspiration has flowed forth.
We’ve given everything a home and a pretty home too. Storage is king and it is beautiful – or it will be when it’s finished! Organisation and colour coordination, does that get you excited too? I want to do all this to my home now as well!
Learning DIY Skills
We’ve all chipped in, and grown quite savvy with the old saw and drill and reading flat pack instructions! Our trusty builder Martin has advised us along the way, and done all the biggest jobs. He comes highly recommended if you are looking for a handy man.
Making the Studio Work for Us
We’ve also been thinking about how we work and how we can make the space work for us. We have revamped our office to maximise workflow. Built a specific newborn photography station to save our knees. And to make the studio all the more COVID friendly we’ve put in a second samples station upstairs. Plus we’ve finally put a new floor into the loo.
There is more, but you’ll just have to come and visit us to see.
We can’t wait until that can happen!
See you soon!
