our photo studio

 

I have no problem being transparent about the fact that our company headquarters is currently located in our home. While I daydream about the day when we open the doors to our actual office space outside of our home … this is our reality for the time-being. And that’s okay. Some things take time, and getting into an office space is most definitely a process.

Right now we have a photo studio set up in what used to be our dining room. To be honest, this was an area used only about three to four times a year anyway. This space is actually being utilized more these days than our dining room ever was. I love what happens in here. That’s Selena (left) and Kara (right) pictured above, by the way. Just working their magic like they do.

Lights, camera, lenses, shelves full of products, backdrops, wood boards, tripods. And … some stuff piled up on one of the walls serving as a daily reminder how desperate I am for a dedicated office space with a proper photo studio and fantastic storage – not in my home.  ; )

In the meantime, I am grateful we’ve had the space to do this while we’ve needed it. I’m grateful that our company’s photography needs no longer fall completely on my shoulders the way it did the first few years of running our business when I took all the pictures myself. I’m grateful for talented friends who are an integral part of our team and who make pretty pictures of our products.

    Fabulous! I know it’s a hassle having all that stuff in your house, but it’s also awesome you still do it this way. Yay for small businesses!

    We run a small manufacturing business from home. For a couple years we rented a building, but then we moved it back into our home. It keeps a lot more profit in our pockets, we just had to find a more efficient system (which we did and is awesome!)

    You’re doing a magnificent job running this business, no matter where you are running it from. So happy to hear you have been able to have someone else share the photography work. Keep on keeping on, your creations help so many of us create loving legacies for our families.

  6. I am blessed to have a room in my home for my portrait studio. It is located downstairs in my finished basement. I hope that you are able to get your offices soon. Your business is growing so fast! Thank you for sharing the photos.

    CHINA has pledged to bring order to its “chaotic” rare earth industry by introducing strict mining rules and tightening environmental standards over the next five years.
