THE BEFORE

After 4 years at 2 amazing studio locations (Big Bay and Milnerton) I'm excited to announce a new chapter in my life!

 

I decided to move my Studio to my Home so I can continue to work as a photographer but now dedicating more time to my family and my clients and being a better "mom", "Wife" and "PHOTOGRAPHER" to all my existing and new clients. 

I have realised that giving my money away on "RENTAL" is absolutely insane especially in today's tough times and that moving the studio back home means i will be able to enjoy more time with my family and give my clients more attention and better service. 

 

I can now focus on everything in one place. It was not an easy decision to make coming from having amazing studio spaces from 70m2 in Big Bay and then a 200m2 in Milnerton, which was a dream come true but this has also shown me that i can work anywhere, in any location and in any situation and light. 

 

Its the experience that my clients enjoy with me.

 

I was sad to leave my current studio but realised that making this step was going to be the best thing for ME. It wasn't hard to determine the space i needed and how i would go about incorporating the studio into my home...but to do that i still needed to do alot of planning and "sweat" and "tears", as i knew exactly the amount of space i usually need to capture my clients from my previous studio setups.

THE RENOVATIONS BEGIN

The whole building process was amazing in only took 3 weeks to do this conversion for me, the next phase will happen in the next few months or which will be to the parking area and will include a little garden for clients to relax in

 

A huge thank you to MFW PROPERTY MAINTENANCE to Warren, Francois and his team for making this studio space possible. 

THE NEW STUDIO

I am so excited to share with you my brand new studio!! 

 

THANK YOU TO ALL MY FAMILY, FRIENDS AND CLIENTS for all your support and for making this happen!

 

It is a beautiful natural light studio that has a  warm and welcoming environment for families. Its a state of the art NEWBORN boutique studio with amazing natural light and purely  dedicated to your precious little ones, toddlers and of course the mommy to be and small families. 

 

The studio is stocked with comfy wraps, hats, bonnets, headbands and unique props for newborns and babies. I have a beautiful wardrobe area that is filled with gorgeous maternity dresses and small range of toddler outfits too.

 

It has a cozy lounge  with a full view of me capturing your little one, and is stocked with light nacks and beverages. For your convenience, I  have complimentary wifi and kid friendly movies to keep your little ones entertained while i capture your newborns.

 

The studio is located in Blouberg. So close to Milnerton too.

 

Here are a few photos of the new studio, I will share more of the studio when i have completed all the tiny details.

 

The 60m2 studio has the following features:

 

  • A Newborn Studio equipped with all props for the session - trust me with 12 years of collecting items you will see just how many items i do have. 

  • General studio with stunning cement tile look flooring and different wall backdrops to capture the perfect family portrait

  • Makeup/Dressing area with baby changing station

  • Amazing Coffee of course....trust me this is something i "live on" and of course other refreshments and snacks.

  • Bathroom

  • Stunning natural light

  • Free Wifi and Netflix (for the little ones)

  • Exclusive parking just for my clients (2 bays only) so limited but definitely shows you how i am focused just on you and not being a commercial studio.

 

It is fully equipped with

  • Baby changing station

  • Nespresso Coffee machine and Refreshments

  • Free Wifi

  • Minimal parking available for 2 cars only 

 

Here are some F&A on my new studio space:

How many people can the studio accommodate:

My studio is a more intimate space as i prefer more intimate sessions where i can focus on YOU! So a calmer environment, and i prefer capturing larger families outdoors on the beach or your own home for a lifestyle (natural feel)  or on a stunning wine farm ...check out my family sessions here.
