Well it’s been a big secret for a while now, but now its all official. Mrs Smith Boudoir is moving to a new home. I am sharing a beautiful natural light studio with the lovely Jo from http://www.summerlovephotography.co.uk . It is in a grade 2 listed building and has the most wonderful natural light. High ceilings and fantastic atmosphere – I just cant begin to tell you how excited I am. I plan to blog the progress so here goes.
I was a little disappointed and disheartened looking for a studio. It seemed like mission impossible to find somewhere that had great light, period features and well, just felt right as wouldn’t have to re mortgage my house to afford. The morning I met the estate agent to view a couple of properties was cold and wintry. We viewed several spaces before getting to number 14 TMP. It was a sort of eureka moment – perhaps that’s a bit over the top, but I knew at once this could work. Ok it was a bit dusty and unloved, but the potential was totally there.
As soon as I got home I contacted Jo to let her know and see if she would be interested in having a look. We arranged to view again. I must admit I was quite nervous going back as I was wondering if the first viewing had taken place wearing rose-tinted specs, but Jo could see it too. So started a series of Apprentice style coffee-house meetings, lots of can we?, should we? what if? . Oh my, talk about a roller coaster.
So after lots of e-mails, meetings, nail-biting – we are almost there. The journey starts here ………….
