This announcement is a long time in the making, but I’m super excited to say that I’m moving to a new studio space in September! Well, technically, mid-August, but those last 2 weeks I’ll be busy making the move and getting the new place all set up.
My 3 year lease at my current photo studio in Golden Valley was coming to an end at the end of August and I knew I wanted to make the move into something bigger and closer to my home in Maple Grove (if I could swing it).
I started looking for spaces in January just to see what was out there and there was one space I kept coming back to. I looked at a few other spaces in the area, but nothing seemed to fit right for me or my clients. I always have my clients in mind when thinking of my studio. I want my clients to come into a clean and welcoming environment and everything I looked at just didn’t fit the bill.
I finally inquired about the new space located on the border of Maple Grove and Brooklyn Park. As soon I met with the lease manager and got a tour of the building, I knew it fit everything I was looking for.
The new space, located at 7308 Aspen Lane N, is a one story office/warehouse building located in Brooklyn Park just 5 minutes east of downtown Maple Grove. I love that it’s one story, which means no more climbing stairs for me or my clients, yay!
The space is about 100 sq ft bigger than my previous location. I’ll be losing the bathroom right in my studio, but there are bathrooms right down the hall from me. What I lose in the bathroom/storage area I’ll be gaining in shooting space to add more variety to my newborn, baby and maternity sessions, which I’m really excited about. I’ll be taking photos and updating my studio page as soon as it’s all ready. My new floors are going in soon and I’ll have the keys in hand in about 2-3 weeks!
So, all clients with sessions scheduled after Sept. 1st will be in the new location. I still have a few sessions scheduled in August at the old location right up to my move date. Possibly one of my last sessions at my current studio will be of this little guy’s one year photos, so I thought I should share his 6 month photos now. I’ve worked with his mom and dad on their First Year Baby Plan Package from their maternity photos, newborn photos, these 6 month photos and in another week, one year photos of their little man. It’s been a blast working with them!
I’m currently booking sessions for September and October and am almost full for September. Please contact me today to book your baby’s photo session!
