Welcome to Photoheart Studios! I’m excited to give you an virtual tour of this space. But you are welcome to visit me at the studio for an in person tour anytime! We also welcome children, pets and even husbands!! My studio is located within Makeshift Kamloops located in Dallas #104-Dallas Drive. One of the things I really wanted in my studio was a creative feel. The gals from Makeshift have made this space very cozy and inviting. There have been a few changes in decor but they are always coming up with something funky and unique! (I miss that red couch!)
A Peek Inside the Studio
High ceilings, concrete floor and large windows give this space a very open feeling! I love how each area has its own character! The macrame wall hangings are definitely in improvement from my childhood recollection of twine and beads!
A few of my favorite things
My favorite thing about this space (besides the FREE parking) is the versatility of where I can shoot within the studio. I can choose to use the bright window light or work in the back with my studio lighting. Depending on the mood of my shoot we can make it work. My first love is outdoor photography for portraits using natural light. However, my control-freak side is very happy about how much I can control the light in the studio… especially on those super sunny days here in the Loops!
I have several backdrops to choose from. A few that are features of Makeshift Kamloops vintage decor. We have also created some fun custom backdrops as well. My handsome hubby built a two-sided brick wall – rustic brown on one side and bright teal blue on the other! I love the versatility. Traditional white, black or grey backdrops are a staple, and I also have made custom backdrops such as a black/grey painted canvas and pretty flower wall that my daughter and I pinned each and every flower onto the wall by hand. We also make custom props, like hand-made flower crowns and decorative banners for a styled shoot. Check out this photo shoot of my daughter Sophia and a few of the crowns we have made recently here.
Pets are Welcome!
A very unique part of this studio space is that it is pet friendly! Yes! We welcome your fur babies to join us for a photo shoot. This is Lola, my beautiful Weimaraner pup! You can follow the adventures of Lola on Instagram @Lola_the_weim_sword. I am offering Fine Art Pet Portraits in the studio for all of you animal lovers out there! You can see some of the furry friends I made during a recent holiday fundraising event at Photoheart Studios with GenNext Kamloops here. I would love to show you my studio in person, send me a message or give me a call 250-318-3780. We can meet there for coffee and a chat!
