Where did we go again?.... Part Deux

How did we spend our summer?  June and July were even more crazy busy as this whole transition began to grow legs.

I like how the golden hour light reflects off this stainless steel sign at the new studio.

June was all about three things:  1) At work, finding and grooming my replacement and 2) at home, preparing the house to put on the market.  On a photog's income I know I can't continue to live in this big house and it's way too much for us anyway.  3) At the end of the month I found that commercial studio space I was looking for (well, not exactly what I had envisioned but something I can make work.)

Ryan and Beau helped me with this "floating" crown molding so I can move these backdrop panels around in the small portrait studio space.

July was another crazy month.  I scrambled to get the house on the market (yea, I missed the spring selling season - that will cost me) and I moved all of my photo studio and art studio over to the new commercial space.  My house was ready to show by the middle of the month, and I had to work hard to begin to get the new space ready to use.  We shot just one boudoir client using make-shift pop-up backdrops, an air-bed, and a lot of patience on our client's part.  At least she liked the final product.  She bought a large print to hang in her fiance's man-cave and their wedding is today where she presents him with the album I made for her.  Can't wait to hear how he liked that.

And, we have a trip to the west coast in August I needed to prepare for.  All about that in the next article, so stay tuned.
