Weston Family 061 900x600 Celebrating New Studio and Our 4 Year Anniversary!September is a month of big ideas and new ventures for me. On September 1st of this year, I celebrated the 4 year anniversary of deciding that I would take my photography hobby and turn it into a business. The last 4 years have been full of excitement, stress, ideas and growth!

Two years ago this week, I looked at the first place I considered renting for a studio. This is when the dream of moving my growing boudoir business out of my home started.
