So as many of you know I recently opened a storefront in downtown Defiance! After graduating college in November and having to turn down so many sessions because I didn't have an indoor space, I waited for the perfect opportunity for the right spot to show up. In January, I ended up falling in love with a space that couldn't have been more perfect! I signed the lease in February and from that day it was time to make it feel like home! We had to paint all the walls because they were bright pink, blue, and green, replace a handful of ceiling tiles, install new ceiling fans, hang shelves and pictures, build a wooden wall, and just add some personal finishing touches to make it mine. I spent about 50-60 hours a week the whole month of March. It's been a long and slow process, but it is all totally worth it! I am now in the process of getting the outside painted and a sign so people know who I am! It's the worst feeling when your sitting in your studio and people walk by and say "hmm I wonder who that is." Everything will be completely finished by August and it is the most exciting feeling EVER! I plan to have a grand opening with giveaways, activities, and lots of food after we get everything finished! I can't wait to share before and after photos when it is all finished!
