Studio Tour

In my last blog post, I spoke of the absolute nightmare condition the studio was in when I got it.  After 4 weeks of construction and another few weeks of fine tuning, I finally have the space dialed in.  It was no easy task bringing the space from a warehouse to a sophisticated studio space.  It was a joint effort between me and my interior designer Sandi Kaneko Interiors.  Sandi elevated the space by guiding me in color palette curation, finishes and furniture.  I’m so glad I hired a professional rather than trying to DIY Ikea everything.  The space is everything I envisioned and more!

Godchild Gift Idea

When you’re a godparent, great care and thought is put into a gift for your godchild.  You may feel that a simple outfit or toy won’t suffice, after all, you love this child so much and you want to gift something from the heart!

Well, I have the best godchild gift idea ever for you!

What I’ve been seeing here at the studio is godparents thinking outside the box and gifting their godchildren (as well as nieces and nephews) photo sessions.  This thoughtful gift is something a child will never grow out of or lose; its something the entire family can enjoy forever.  Maybe that line was a little cheesy, but honestly, being a parent of 4 kids in the household, I know the gifts we remember and cherish the most are centered around unique, personal and won’t clutter my house up!  A photo session?  Check, check and check!

Alessandra’s Godmother gifts photo sessions to her each year.

I am thankful for thoughtful godparents like Liz who allow me to do what I love the most: documenting children’s growth over time.  Maybe you should be thankful to Liz too for giving you the best godchild gift idea ever!!

Today, see Alessandra’s 2 gift sessions from newborn to her 1 year cake smash!  Happy Birthday Alessandra!
