The blog has been long over due for an update….and this particular news is just the time for a new post! The past month I have been bursting at the seams with exciting news to share with you all! Caught by a Flash Photography has officially opened a STUDIO! We are located right off of Joppa Road, within easy access of the beltway and Harford and Baltimore Counties. I can’t wait to bring in clients to see this wonderful space and to enjoy some fun in front of the camera! We are fully equipped for newborn, children, seniors, families, couples, businesses, and yes even pet portraits! I am anxiously looking forward to capturing your memories with our unique props, backdrops, and floors! Not only is the studio equipped with professional studio lights, but their is also gorgeous natural light coming through the windows; perfect for portraits and newborns!
I couldn’t wait to share some pictures with you of the space! Their are so many projects that went into putting this space together and I could not have completed this without my creative and very handy husband! He has put so many hours into the space, and I am so grateful for all he has done! He helped build a wood floor, backdrop wall holder, studio light tracking system, picture hanging system, wall moulding, corner shelf…and the list goes on!He has truly captured my vision and made it into a reality! Thank you dear hubby for supporting and creating my dream! Love you!!
My theme for the studio was to design a shabby chic space with plenty of antique and vintage accents, along with some new pieces. I wanted to keep things pretty cohesive throughout, keeping with a turquoise and brown theme that also flows nicely with my website, business cards, & packaging.
My husband and I had many adventures finding so many unique items for the studio, all at various antique stores in PA and MD. Along with the antique stores, I was able to obtain many gorgeous pieces from my favorite resource Etsy! Seriously though I think I might need to have a therapy session for my addiction to this site! From shabby chic pillows, converted mason jars, lavender sachets, crocheted rugs….really anything you can think of I was able to find pieces that just fit right in with my style!
Organization was also a key element to designing the space; along with a closet shelving system in the closest holding plastic containers labeled for easy viewing, and a simple wood unit holding colored fabric bins which are labeled as well! I also purchased an unfinished table that I stained and easily will store other items as needed. I want to be able to find everything easily and know what I have on hand!
I can’t wait for my clients to come in and experience the studio! In the meantime though I have attached a few glimpses into the studio space! Oh and the studio bathroom…well that is a post for another day! That too has received a face lift! :0)
Please let me know what you all think of the space! Love you all! You too have helped me make it to my dream!
( Studio Address: 1832 East Joppa Road, Suite 2A, Baltimore, MD 21234 *by appointment only)
