Dover New Philadelphia Ohio Photographer | STUDIO TOUR
STUDIO TOUR | Dover New Philadelphia Ohio Photographer
I’m very exited to finally be sharing my Midvale studio with you!! I’m located in Midvale Ohio, which is snug in between New Philadelphia and Uhrichsville (just after the Schoennbrunn – or Kent Tusc Branch – exit on 250 East). Or for those of you more North of me, I’m 30-40 minutes South of Canton and 10 minutes away from Dover.
This place has been a work in progress to say the least. When we originally purchased this home almost 5 years ago, the studio was in our plan. Of course life happened and it was put on the back burner. Honestly, looking back I can see that this is the way we needed it to be for awhile. I took over our dining room in our home and set up studio in there. And while there were drawbacks, it worked for us. Liam was born that same time and I can think of quite a few sessions where I was baby wearing Liam, he was playing quietly on his play-mat or in his bouncy chair, napping in his bedroom or he was crawling around behind me making the other babies and children laugh at his antics. I didn’t need to worry about leaving him. I scheduled around our home schedule and it was just what we needed in that time. Now that my kids are getting older I was finally able to take the time to finish the studio space. I’m able to schedule studio session while they’re in school most days and if they’re not, my two oldest are great at distracting and entertaining Liam for a few hours while I’m right outside the house in the studio. Perfect!!!
Make sure you read this post in it’s entirety so that you can see my 4 year old’s own little “studio tour” he did on my iPhone. I about fell off my chair laughing when I found it!
I absolutely love my little studio! I call it perfectly imperfect. It has perfect window light for bright days and I have my studio light to make up for darker days. The white walls are great at reflecting the light back onto my adorable little subjects.
I’m still working on getting more studio samples up on the walls. Be patient with me, LOL. I did just order a few items that will be on the walls soon! Be on the lookout for that post at a later date!I think Liam approves with 2 thumbs up 🙂Now that you’ve seen it finished, how about a behind the scenes look at the progress photos? I’ll warn you…. it was downright scary at first. When I texted my DIY bestie the first couple of photos, I held my breath thinking she would surely skip out on me. But nope, not Alicia, she came to my rescue as always! Don’t worry, she’s racking up all these DIY points for when she owns her own home one day… Then she’ll cash in and I’ll be repaying for all of her help. 🙂
As promised, here is an adorable video of my 4 year old son talking all about my studio, explaining what types of props I have available for use and other fun stuff. 😉 Make sure to press play!
