At the end of 2010 I temporarily closed my studio location and went to being strictly an on-location photographer, I was due to have a baby in a few months and needed the ability to be home with him and actually have a “maternity leave” of sorts. With the large retail space (read:overhead!) I had, this wasn’t going to be an option for me, so I chose baby over super-awesome studio. Best choice I ever made because since then my friend Kindra offered to lease me a smaller space in the back of her boutique. I had actually been looking for a smaller space, what I had was over 1000 sq. feet and I only needed maybe half that. This has a been a perfect compromise for me, and a great business choice as well. Kindra’s boutique is absolutely GORGEOUS inside, she displays my work in her space (foot traffic? yes please!) and anytime my clients or myself need some sort of clothing/prop we have an entire store to shop in! If you haven’t heard of Bibs 2 Bloomers here is a Daily News article, and another article by my favorite local publication the Valley Bugler with more information. We are located at 107 A Church St in Kelso, which is in between the two bridges on the Kelso side and just down the hill from Sunnicuts. Stop on by and shop, or call to schedule and appointment with me!
So….that brings me to the photos- Kindra asked me to take some photos of her kiddos, so I did!
