The indoor studio remodel is moving along really well…we have most of the drywall finished, and we are moving to trim work this week. Tile is expected to begin work this week in the new bathroom also, and we are double checking our selections for lighting, plumbing, cabinetry, and more. I’ve been slowly stockpiling the additional items necessary to outfit the kitchenette area, bathroom, and dressing room and all in all I’m really excited about the progress and the timelines.
I do believe Matthew Bowe Design Build will deliver this project on time and that makes me very happy! I’ve been busy booking March portrait sessions and again, the excitement builds with so much interest in the new space and the convenience it will offer my clients. And of course, our other vendors and sub contractors are working really, really hard to make this deadline happen. We can’t forget Dulles Electric, Ferguson Plumbing, Roberts Plumbing, Trumps Electrical Service, Mosaic Tile Company, Local Wood, Aspen Construction Group, Sky Marble and Salzano Custom Concrete. It’s been wonderful working with familiar faces, but also getting to know and build so much respect for our new partners in this process.
So while I concentrate on the build out of the new #indoorstudio, I also have to begin turning my attention back to the outdoor areas – our exclusive #portraitpark. Prep begins very soon on the spaces out there to make sure they are beautiful and ready for the outdoor photo sessions that begin late March….so we are looking at what props will stay, what needs refreshing, and what needs changing. And then I turn my attention to what new areas I’ll be developing this year. It’s a big job, and of course, we do it all ourselves until we need help from the “big guys”. You already know my favorite outdoor vendor is Wildwood Landscape, and we hope to add a few new trees and/or shrubs to some spaces this year. And next year – I have BIG outdoor dreams & plans! I hope we can make those happen!
I’m excited about the options we already have, of course, for family portrait sessions and engagement sessions, and certainly high school seniors. But I’m always looking to mix it up and make it different and new. After all, the same photos over and over again get boring, right????
