Last week the garage was converted into a photo studio. I’ve always wanted to do this but couldn’t in my Portland home since the gym was used for the preschool. Having to share space with the preschool meant needing to set up and take down equipment for each photo session. We cleaned out the garage, hung some curtains to hide the storage area, and painted the wall white. There are still some things to do, but at least the space is now usable. I love that we can hang items from the ceiling. We couldn’t do that in the preschool gym since the ceilings were too high.
After converting the garage, we decided to do an autumn portrait session with Tessa. We gathered a few fall items and had some fun with our new set-up!
I recently completed Sandra Coan’s strobes class and would like to try out the skills with some child models. More info about my work with children can be found here.
