The White Space Studio | The Story

We’re making progress from the first post about the studio! I still can’t believe this 5 year old dream has still really happened!

Throughout the years I have had many different ideas for my studio. Prior to opening The White Space Studio I had been shooting out of my home studio, which I loved. It was a small 200SF space that I was quickly growing out of. We had been looking for 2 years for property to build our studio outside of our house and FINALLY had found our dream house on an acre of land… However, while purchasing our new house, we learned that we were unable to have a home based business that allows clientele, thus leading to one of the best decisions we have yet to make regarding my professional career as a photographer: open a studio. I am SO thankful that it did not work out for us to create another home-studio because I LOVE – LOVE – LOVE our new studio space!

Some are probably wondering why I chose to name the studio The White Space Studio and not Michelle Newell Photography… Well, here’s why: I wanted to design a space for professional artists, not just myself, to have a space that they could create in and also use as a professional studio for their clients. In the future the space will be available for other photographers, painters, videographers etc to rent and use for shoots, galas, workshops etc…

Currently I share the studio space with my AWESOME studio mate, Elise Liptack of Elise Marie Photography. Elise specializes in photographing girls and women. She also teaches awesome Beginning Photography Workshops! I absolutely love having Elise as my studio mate, not only is she a FABULOUS photographer, she is also beyond creative and has helped make the studio look so cute!!

The studio is “by appointment only” and does not function as a regular retails space. This allows us to keep our sessions and appointments private for our clients as well as come and go as we please. Thus, when the curtains are drawn, we are in session =)

I have also been working on getting The White Space Studio’s website up and running and have FINALLY put some finishing touches on it! Be sure to check it out at: www.thewhitespacestudio.com We also have a fun facebook page for the studio: www.facebook.com/thewhitespacestudio

Enjoy this little sneak peek into the studio!

Sweet Chloë | 11 Days New {Sammammish Newborn Photographer}

June 22nd, 2012

To say that I love my job would be an understatement. And to say that I adore these sweet little ones wouldn’t be an adequate description. I feel extremely honored to be invited into such incredible moments in people’s lives such as these. And documenting these journies to parenthood is one of those wonderful moments. I [...]

To say that I love my job would be an understatement. And to say that I adore these sweet little ones wouldn’t be an adequate description.

I feel extremely honored to be invited into such incredible moments in people’s lives such as these. And documenting these journies to parenthood is one of those wonderful moments.

I first met Chloë’s mommy & daddy two weeks before her arrival. They were glowing with anticipation and could not wait to meet their precious little one.

She finally arrived and could not have been a better newborn for her session. Barely made a peep and showed her beautiful blue eyes towards the end of her session. Enjoy this sneak peek!

I am extremely passionate about maternity portraiture. I love meeting expectant moms and seeing that twinkle in their eye. The twinkle of knowing that they have something incredibly miraculous developing and growing inside of them. That in approximately 40 [short] weeks they will be meeting a life that will completely and forever rock – their [...]

I am extremely passionate about maternity portraiture. I love meeting expectant moms and seeing that twinkle in their eye. The twinkle of knowing that they have something incredibly miraculous developing and growing inside of them. That in approximately 40 [short] weeks they will be meeting a life that will completely and forever rock – their – world.

Maternity Portraiture is not about having someone take a few snapshots of the pregnant form. Maternity Portraiture by Michelle Newell Photography is an experience that provides expectant moms with a moment in time to revel what their bodies are truly doing. A moment to see how extremely beautiful they are. A moment of pampering.

If you are carrying a new life and have debated on having maternity portraits taken, contact me about our Exclusively Maternity Collections and how we will capture this incredible journey you are on.

i love hearing from you… leave a comment below!
