Fort Mill SC Charlotte NC Studio Photography | Newborn Studio {Alissa’s studio}

You guys. I’m pretty cold and dead inside…or so I like to say, but this new spot for my studio photography gives me all the feels.  Gosh, I have drooled over other photographers’ spots for 5 years and could not wrap my mind around how you even come close to getting to a place where it financially made sense and where you were established enough to make it happen. I can easily say…I still have no idea. LOL. I’m so grateful for all my clients, friends, and family who have helped me get to this point. It literally takes a village.

 

My studio photography used to take place in a bedroom in our home for the past 5 years. It was convenient. It was cheap. It was invasive. The house had to be spotless at all times and by last spring, we were doing 2-3 newborns a week and it was too much. My two older sons were sharing a room and they were on each other’s nerves. It was time for a change…..so we put our house on the market. We found a house that had a finished basement to give the business and our life a little bit of space from each other. Well our house sold, we put an offer on the other house, and all the things seemed to fall into place. For a day. Unfortunately after 48 hour under contract, it all fell through. My father went to the ER with heart attack symptoms and by the time I got home that night, our buyers had backed out. It was beyond frustrating, but led me on a search to make sure we were looking at all our options…..we weren’t. I stumbled upon a sweet little storefront space that was available a month later and I ended up in it. Just 2 doors down from a baby boutique. It’s crazy how things work out sometimes and how those frustrating dips end up being blessings in disguise.

 

So here it is…finally…on my 6 month anniversary of moving in. It couldn’t be more perfect for my first studio. It’s right on Main Street with a parking lot behind the building. Enough space for a sitting area, my studio, a nursing/changing room, closet, and a little bar area for snacks and coffee. There are a few things left to do….like paint and decorate the “kitchen”….but all in all, I think it screams Alissa Bray 🙂 From the green cabinet to that canvas of my boys in the creek. Sometimes I stand in it and think…I have no idea how we got here. Don’t get me wrong….Richard and I bust it….but for me, it doesn’t feel like work 90% of the time. It feels like an extension of me and that gives me all the feels.
