About Redwall Photo

The longer I shoot, and the more portrait sessions I do, the more I’ve been wanting a shooting space. A place to do simple headshots, newborn/baby sessions, and especially boudoir. By having a location where I can do some of these shoots, I not only make it easier on my clients, but also less expensive (how nice will it be to not have to rent a hotel room for boudoir?!). Granted, I still love on-location shoots, and for that reason, am still happy to shoot family sessions and engagement sessions “in the wild,” but I like having options!

So, enter my new space. When the renewal of the lease on my Lombard space came due, it was evident that it was time to look around and see what else was out there. I looked all over. Literally. I found some spaces I fell in love with, only to realize that they were leased the day prior, or changed terms on me last minute. I was about ready to throw in the towel and admit defeat, but then I stumbled across this space in Lacuna Art Lofts online and immediately fell in love. It was obvious that none of the other spaces worked out because this one was meant for me. Oh, that brick archway, that awesome weathered floor, those huge windows… and you haven’t even seen the rest of the building yet. The whole thing is pretty amazing.

A few days after seeing it online, I was able to view it this afternoon, and immediately signed on the dotted line to make it mine. Starting early April, all my meetings will occur in the new space, and I’ll begin offering studio photo sessions soon after (I might even have a grand opening special, so keep an eye out!). I can’t wait to have a grand opening so I can show y’all in person!

After much blood, sweat, and tears, the studio is finally finished! The last time I posted photos, we still had all the decorating to do, so it looked quite bare. Well, it looks pretty awesome now… but I’m not going to be posting pictures of it just yet. I want to keep it under wraps until after our public grand opening on Sunday, May 22nd, between 4-8pm (Clients, we will also be having a client-only party on Saturday, May 21st. Keep an eye out for an email from me!).

If you’re reading this, you’reĀ invited to our grand opening, so come eat, drink, be merry… and enter yourself in our raffle for a free portrait session and free cosmetics. We would love if you (and all your friends) would celebrate with us!
