Today, I signed the letter of intent on my new studio and living quarters. I should have possession of it by the first of the year, if all goes as planned, and will probably open in early 2008.

excellent looking building.. love the height.. good luck with your plans..

on a side note

whilst running through your website i noticed something that you may want to change.

when i click on gallery - the page it goes to is called photography website template. it does the same for services and FAQ pages too....

however there are some very nice images on there... very nice indeed

Thanks, guys. It's really scary committing to something like this, but I'm determined to make a go of it. I'm hoping that the downtown location and the kick-a$$ facility will help with wedding bookings. I already book a number of senior and family portraits each year, so business in that area can only get better. I found that people in my area weren't taking me seriously due to the lack of a physical location (and actually told me that), so this may be just what I needed to double or even triple my bookings.

Thanks for letting me know! I purchased the template as an interim solution to a Big Folio or Bludomain site and forgot to change it. And I changed the link in my sig to my blog site rather than my website.

We all know you'll be very successful with your great attitude and work ethics Elizabeth. I wish you the best though, as you have some big kahoonas to take that step nonetheless LOL.

Thanks. Taking the step to not only give up my home but also to move to town after living in the country for 18 years was a big one. My boys are ecstatic, though, since they are at the age that they want to be in town closer to their friends and activities.

It is huge. It's 2,500 square feet downstairs with another 2,500 square feet upstairs. It also has a cool roof deck that will be great on summer nights. The loft has the original hardwood flooring and also has exposed brick walls and a large built in wardrobe in the master bedroom area. The back 800 square feet is unfinished with the exception of a rock climbing wall. This will be the bedroom area for my boys after we partition off two rooms and add a second bathroom.

The newer woodwork was installed by the fellow who owns the building now. He has a custom furniture shop and does absolutely beautiful work. I really, really want to buy a couple of the pieces he has in the showroom.

Congratulations!!! What a great building. It definitely is well suited to serve as a studio location. All the best for a VERY exciting new year for you.
