The new studio

Posted on 24 February 2016

We moved into a new house last August and one of the big selling points was that it had a beautiful stone building in the garden with power running to it. The previous owners had really let it go (it seemed to just be used as storage for a toy railway set) and we were excited about giving it a bit of TLC.

Motivated to get the decoration done in time for a very exciting photoshoot that's taking place tomorrow (more on that soon), we've finally got it sorted. I thought I'd take some quick shots to capture the almost-finished results.*


*It won't be finished entirely until Sam is properly back from maternity leave and there's a bit more of 'her' in here. I must admit it's a bit of a man-cave at the moment.
