As you know from my last blog, the hospital stay and subsequent re-cooperation, limited my activities. So, my Studio partner, Brenda Giasson, and her fiance', Tim, put in a lot of work and the studio is open for business. We had a few folks stop by to take a look during the July Lewiston/Auburn Art Walk. We may have a more formal "Open House" in a few weeks, as we shake off the cob webs, and get more organized with what belongs where, and how we can best utilize the space that is available to us.

We have roof access, when it is arranged in advance, and the view over Lewiston and Auburn are incredible. Even the windows look out over the city sky line.

As you can tell, I am kind of excited about having a place to shoot portraits and still lifes. Now, it is just a matter of building up a client list. Some say I must be crazy for starting a new venture when I was talking about full retirement not so long ago. But hey, I am doing something I love. In the meantime, I had a very nice session with a real cutie, on location.
I love photographing children, but they can be a challenge. Layla refused to smile for most of the shoot. No crying though, and she could not hold out forever. All the photos turned out great, but this one showed her at her best, laughing. Keep shooting, and stay tuned.
