Showing some love to my friend and Ottawa yoga teacher, Jenna Switzer who recently drove up here for a studio session. So stoked to have her visit the new space. You can't take a bad shot with this beauty!
I'm excited to share a view of my newly renovated office and Natalie Surette Photography studio room.
This was a vision and dream I had in mind over several years, becoming more prevalent over the last six months, and two months ago I decided to go ahead with it. Forgoing the personal training small gym/fitness studio and nutrition practice was a decision that wasn't easy to make, but I feel the space is better used with my biggest passion of photography, welcoming in newborns for their first photos, themed sessions, intimate shots, portraits and at long last a good chair and desk to save me from editing on my couch.
A few personal touches and designs came together including a beautiful sliding barn door (to separate the hallway to the brewery) and custom shelving unit by Beyond the Bark to display some of my Dad's camera collection I inherited, along with a set of shoes my siblings and I wore as babies, books from my Great-Grandmother that are over 100 years old and some pieces that are near and dear to my heart.
So many photos for such a small space, but I am pretty happy with the way it all came together. The last two pics are the before shots for reference. :)
I've been enjoying editing in the bright space and can't wait to have more indoor sessions here.
I was invited to sit in with the Deep River Symphony Orchestra to capture the essence of Conductor Peter Morris while in action. Peter has been such an integral part of the musical growth of this community with many years teaching, directing, and conducting under his belt. What talent we have in our little town!
