I love natural lighting and our office downstairs is just the perfect place to set up my photography studio. This has been a long-time dream, and I'm thrilled to share it with you! This is just the beginning of my adventure and I expect to add more touches as the business grows. I owe a big thanks to Suzanne Schaefer of Reinventing the Home for all the input and help!
Since I specialize in maternity, newborn and children photography, I wanted to set up my studio in a way that I can very easily switch between newborn and children sessions. I found this great 3-in-1 photography backdrop stand tutorial using PVC pipes to hold all my backdrops. I simply use clamps that I bought at Home Depot to hold fabric and blankets. For seamless paper and fabric backdrops, you can store them each rolled up on a piece of PVC. A few great places for posing fabrics and blankets are Roses and Ruffles, Ikea, and fabric stores like Jo-Ann. To go with the set up, I decided to get a posing bean bag from ShootBaby.com, giving me a nice platform to pose and photograph newborns and babies. With the beautiful natural light shining through my windows, all I need is a reflector on the other side to bounce the light back to create beautiful soft images!
To hold all my blankets and posing fabrics, I went with Ikea's RIGGA Clothes Rack and hanged them. I also found this great scarf and tie hanger at Target to hang all my wraps. I love that idea!
And finally, here are some props I've started collecting. I love that natural, organic look and can't wait to use these soon in the studio on my tiny little models!
I can’t wait to share more photos from the studio! Follow my work by visiting my Little Moments in Time Photography website and blog. You can also visit my Facebook page to Like me and follow me on Pinterest! Thanks!
