Studio Upgrade 2016! Ciceri Photo: Kirkland, WA

It is good to take time to remember our accomplishments and celebrate our growth. Not long ago, my home studio was little more than a nook in the garage.

Most of my work was done on location.

The aesthetics of my humble studio truly didn’t matter that much. Between the mobile portraits and warehouse product photos, I didn’t have anyone to impress in my own garage. ( I often chose to work without pants, even.)

But with my persistence in pursuing portrait photography, I developed the need for a proper home studio. (There is just something off putting about asking people to allow me to photograph them in my garage. *breathes heavily* lol) Granted, space is still quite limited but it serves its purpose quite well. I’ve moved out of the dark, dank garage and into a more refined and comfortable work space; a work space with HEAT. It isn’t much but this studio is mine. Of course, I could also go absolutely nuts acquiring better and better gear (and I will haha) but as it stands, this is my little space where magic happens. Huzzah!

I’m so pleased with the way my new nook is working out.  Now I just need to do a better job decorating the walls.  😛

Individual Portrait Session: Amanda’s Headshots

This is Amanda. Amanda is rad. I was fortunate enough to spend some time with her taking headshots and whatnot. She shared some of her tales of raising three young boys and all that such an endeavor really entails. She is one hard working woman and totally deserving of the quiet “mommy time” she had in my studio. (I love the kids but I have to give a big “Thank You” to that last minute babysitter!)

Amanda and her family are great! They were one of my first family sessions for Ciceri Photo. They have since gained another adorable little boy! (Seriously… all these boys are going to be heartbreakers, mark my word. )
