My Humble Studio

I have finally put the last finishing touches on the studio... for now... LOL 
Take a peek ♥

Cozy seating for mom and dad - Catch up on some light reading


Champagne bucket filled with refreshments and Sweeties (as my grandma calls them)


...with a cherry on top ~ handmade red velvet cupcakes with butter cream cheese icing


Handmade white chocolate candy crowns and animal shaped white chocolate 
dipped oreo cookies *drool*


Everyone needs a little something salty with their sweeties



Sofa table with organic lollipops, lemon drops, and pre-sterilized 
vanilla flavored soothie binkies


 I crochet and knit each and every hat.... I hand sew the fascinators and floral headpieces to coordinate with specific sets. I custom design each session for your newborn. No two sessions are exactly alike

  4. @Aheufa Thanks for the blog love!

    @Skye Quit it... you are my inspiration. I've always wanted to do a completely shabby chic room.

    @Tiff Thank you so much... I know, I need to cultivate a little patience.

  20. Can you please tell me how you store your fabric backdrops? I have a huge problem with the fact that I have to iron all the time. It appears that the wire is landscape fencing but is that a piece of wood attached to the fabric? If so what kind and how? I love that idea!!!! You do beautiful work! My email address is tammybrownphotography@hotmail.com or I am on fb at Tammy Brown Photography. Thank you so much!

  33. Thank you so much for the tutorial on the fabric backdrops! Genius! I just had a quick question, what are your stages made of? Almost looks like twin box springs with bed skirts, but that wouldn't be sturdy enough...am I close? Love your studio!!!

  34. Hi,
    My name is Cassandra Lindquist and I am the manager of Precious Time Photography. You may have heard of us. We typically shoot twice a year on location for several well-known national children’s stores (i.e., Pottery Barn Kids and Janie & Jack). We are looking for artistic children’s photographers to shoot for us this March in the Janie and Jack children’s stores. We are interested in editorial, fun photographers. We love photographs that show kids being themselves. Based upon the quality of the content in your website, it appears that you would be a great candidate to work with us. I love your work!

    Note: This is not a natural light shoot. You must use studio lights.
    The shoot will take place during the following approximate dates:

    Shoot: Early March

    View: Late March

    You would be photographing children digitally, on location in the store by appointment. You will need to have all of your own photographic equipment and a laptop computer. We like our photographers to shoot and sell their own work. The pay is commission-based and generally falls between around $350 to $750 per day. In addition to the pay, this arrangement is beneficial to you because it also allows you to promote your own studio. If the customers enjoy your work . . . you have instant access to many affluent, potential future customers.

    If you are interested in possibly working with us after reading this email, please let me know and I will send you more information. Please get back to me as soon as possible, as I am actively looking for photographers in your area.

    If interested please respond via email to: precioustimelc@gmail.com

    Regards,



    Cassandra Lindquist
