When I initially left my nine to five, I set up shop in our home because that made the most sense financially. Which, was a wonderful option for a few years. I would get dressed and ready for the day first thing every morning, I’d never turn on the tv or let myself get too distracted. And then, inevitable, that all went out the window. The walls began closing in a little and small household chores seemingly haunted me all day long. I remember sitting in my sweats at 11 AM, looking up at the deep, deep, Netflix hole I was in (I think I was on the second day of an Orange Is The New Black binge) and thinking “Oh my goodness, I need to find an office space…NOW!”
It was fate that one day, a friend posted her old shared studio to help them find a couple new people to fill the space. Being that the only other person there was a photographer, I KNEW this would be the perfect office/studio! We hit it off right away and I moved on in, which was really great. Then, when I decided to try full time blogging back in January, Bethany was kind enough to help me out with unknown finances and we were able to work out a deal that Alex shared my portion of the space!
Having Alexandra in the studio with us has been so wonderful for the quality of work I complete when I’m there. We shoot for each other and are able to have brand strategy meetings together. The trouble was, that we never seemed to sit at the desk anymore and it kind of ended up a dumping ground for shipments and random photo shoot crap. We knew that something had to be done, especially since it was a shared room!
I was on a home decor mission and could only function in life by redecorating every single space I’d step into. I was browsing Article one day and we came up with the crazy idea to fix up our area and ditch the conventional desk concept. The vision was a cozier chair and a chic table/chair set up instead what would inspire us creatively and double as a great shooting space for photo and video!
