Our New Studio

Joanne and I couldn’t be more excited to unveil our shiny new photography studio…..or I guess it technically should be called our living room.

You see, our condo is very boutique (aka. ridiculously small) so when we first conceived the idea of putting in a studio we both thought each other were crazy. I think our cat named Marmalade, nicknamed Marms, Puff, Fluff, or Beans among around a million other names, thought she was going to have to move out.

Well, here is the result. We love it!

One of our favorite additions was our “inspiration wall” which is basically wires that are mounted to the wall that we can use to hang stuff.

Mostly we hang food magazine photos but if you look carefully in the picture we also put up our wedding invitations. Sidenote: We can’t believe we are already approaching our second wedding anniversary on May 31st.

Pretty soon we won’t be able to call ourselves a newlywed couple. I am not aware of a rule that specifies an exact length of time you can use the term.

Is there one?

Moving on….

Here is another picture of Marmalade when she is not in her bed. This is a rare event  We were lucky enough to have the camera ready to record the sighting.

I really think she spends about 99% of her life in that bed.

Even when we were moving things around to create our studio she stayed in the bed to supervise. Although, I do remember her coming out to investigate and sniff the drill.

She LOVES drills for some strange reason.

This picture has nothing to do with the studio but I just took this photo of Joanne a couple of weekends ago. Isn’t she beautiful! I am so happy to be married to her.

She makes me smile and she loves making food.

I am one lucky guy.

    The studio is gorgeous. I agree with Aggie – the inspiration wall is a wonderful idea. And Marmalade! How adorable. The photo of Jo is beautiful – because she is, inside and out. Can I just say how great it was to spend some time with you in Orlando? xo

    The condo looks great and Jo looks beautiful :)

    I really like the new inspiration wall, I think every creative mind needs one so only fitting that you guys would have one of your own.

    I can’t believe it has almost been two years!

    I am loving your studio space. Can you come work some of that magic at my house? You’ve seen it, it’s not inspirational.

    Love your studio. It’s so important to have a space that truly inspires you! We are working on some kitchen modifications since that is my studio! ;)

      So true that you need a space to stay inspired. We have worked a lot on our kitchen too. It has taken us two years to do most of the renovations we wanted done but it was worth it. We will be posting the kitchen reno post soon. When you are finished with your kitchen you should send over some photos :)

    This is fun. I love to see other people’s living spaces and you have inspired me to share mine. And what a prrrrrrretty kitty. Marmelade would love my Squeak Toy aka Red Cat aka Kitty Kitty aka No No Bad Kitty. She’s a Turkish Varn; short white hair with a couple of orange juice spots, orange tail and partial orange head. Beautiful cat, just like your Marme is. Joanne is lovely, too. YOU BET you’re a lucky guy! :-)

    You guys.. you are killing me showing me the kitty1.. I need to start posting photos of mine, I just have to convince them to stay put long enough to take a snap! Love your studio as well.. and I can relate the the inspiration wall (I have one too!) and trust me they work wonders! I cannot wait to see the kitchen.

    Oh btw, you have a beautiful wife – you are both very lucky. And there is not status of limitation to the feeling of newlywed..that can go on forever.
