We are up and running in our new downtown Marietta, Ohio portrait studio space! And oh my goodness I LOVE being in Marietta! It is a quick walk to a couple of my favorite places – The Galley/Adelphia, SWAGG , Focus and the Buckley House to name a few and Marietta is just so damn charming!
Many of you may already know that 2014 was a doozy of year for me both personally and professionally. I sold my family home in July, started living part time in Detroit and opened a new studio space in downtown Marietta. Honestly, the new studio space was a total surprise to me. I was not certain exactly what we were going to do when the house sold and a great solution just happened to unfold for us!It has been an amazing adventure and things are finally starting to settle down into what I call my new normal.
Andi’s new normal looks something like this: I travel the five hours back to the Mid Ohio Valley twice a month for portrait sessions. I work remotely from the Detroit area for the rest of the month editing, taking care of office type stuff, snuggling my fur babies, exploring Detroit and hanging with my curly headed love. It can be a bit hectic at times but so far I am enjoying it! Flexibility, an amazing tribe of friends, Google Hangouts and the ever amazing Jesse Hyde have been key to a smooth transition.
Speaking of Jesse, now would be a great time to mention that we are sharing studio space with our sister studio Hot Tomato Pin-Up Academy and we are loving it!
Our studio is an old warehouse space on the third floor of Putnam Commons (the old JCPenny building). It has a rough, loft feel with wood floors, tall windows, exposed brick and some very interesting architectural details.
The space is dreamy, with abundant natural light and tons of room for sets and props. More space means that I can easily accommodate indoor sessions no matter what the weather holds so there are fewer reschedules. Natural light allows me to accommodate kiddos (or any folks for that matter) who don’t react well to flash photography.
We would love for you to stop by sometime! Just drop us a line and let us know you would like to see the new space! We are booking now for April, May and all of 2015. Your session starts here!
Here are some images from the new space –
