some of you have probably made your way to my quaint little preston studio space, but some of you might not have. this space is not only a place to photograph indoors, but it's also my office.  this is where i have client consultations, where i edit your photos, where i store my props, and it's also where i take newborn photos and headshots. so it's basically where i am about 80% of the time (joking, but also slightly serious!)

when choosing a color scheme for my space, i went with primarily grays. i got a lot of "why would you do that amelia? that's so depressing and dull."  oh the contrary, grays are timeless and elegant.  i added touches of black and gold and threw in some greenery anywhere i could.  side note: because i am a plant serial killer, all plants are fake ikea plants apart from a few recently acquired cacti which are super real (and pokey!)

in my opinion, one of the coolest things about having this space is that i finally have a place to display my film camera collection which is something i've been collecting for about 3 years now. i'm currently sporting about 30 of them around the studio on various shelves and corners but believe me when i say, between gifts and thrifting, that number grows about once a month.

one other thing that i couldn't live without in my studio is my amazon echo (this post is totally not sponsored by amazon, i literally just love it that much!) i play music through this, set timers, ask it the time when i'm setting up for in-studio sessions, or weather conditions for outdoor shoots, everything.  i basically consider alexa my assistant - sad but true! if you're curious about what they look like, it's the little black cylindar on my side table!
