The rich velvety textures, unique chandeliers and vintage frames create an atmosphere that's guaranteed to make you want to stay long after your photo shoot is over! "It's most important to me that clients feel at home here. I want them to feel pampered and loved the idea of a pretty, luxury and feminine feeling space. I love that my studio feels like a mix between a gorgeous salon and a quaint French apartment."
