We recently renovated a new boudoir studio. Here is a little video we put together of the 6 week project. Dramatic Before/After.
We leased to a new space and had to do a lot of renovating. From ceiling to floor, we covered or replaced almost every surface. New silver tiles and chandeliers give the space a classic yet modern flair. The wood floors were one of the most physically taxing jobs, but they came out beautiful and make a great base for all of the sets we have created.
Because it is a photography studio, we wanted to keep as much flexibility as possible.. We needed a designated dressing room. We went with floor to ceiling curtains, that can be moved/rearranged in many different configurations.
The bathroom, as you can see, was a disaster. Christina did a pole on Facebook, asking friends and family to vote on wallpaper.. Add flooring, wainscoting and a giant mirror, and the final result was beautiful, vintage chic.
Having all cinderblock walls was another challenge we faced. While hanging paper rolls, Jake discovered the joy of the rotary hammer!

We just launched a new version of our site today. We did this for several reasons. We got feedback that getting to our portfolio could be confusing so we simplified the navigation. We also made a bunch of back-end changes that should make the site much faster to load, especially on your phone. The best part is that so many of our recent clients were willing to let us share their photos that we had to redesign our galleries to accommodate more images. We have a bunch more photos we will be adding over the next few weeks since we have more room now. Stay tuned and please give us any feedback about our new site. Facebook or Twitter are the quickest ways to send us message.
The lovely folks at Offbeat Bride have added us to their vendor guide. We had a great time meeting them at the Lovesick Expo last month in Alameda at Rockwall Winery. We also met some amazing vendors so we’re happy to be alongside such creative people.
We’re proud to announce that we have been awarded a “Best of 2016” award from Thumbtack for our consistently positive reviews. We have had some great clients find us through Thumbtack and we’re planning to keep our 5 star rating all year. Thanks Thumbtack.
We’ve been doing quite a few Pin-up shoots recently and wanted to share some photos from our most recent session. We always have fun crafting a narrative with props and a healthy dose of attitude.
Here’s some fun trivia about the origins of the term “Pin-up”:
The term Pin-up originates from the late 19th century when burlesque performers and actresses would construct a persona via photo cards to advertise themselves. These photo cards would would be found “pinned up” around the the mirrors in green rooms (back stage).
Trep.life Magazine did an interview on our studio recently, their photographer came by the studio last week to get shots of me and the studio. First, I want to say how easy it was to talk to Catherine (the journalist that interviewed me). She asked intriguing and direct questions. We’ve put so much work into building the space and getting it ready for our own use. Having a fresh pair of photographer-eyes come in with different ideas/visions was very interesting. Being the model for the day was humbling; a great reminder of the work and excitement our clients feel. I’m very pleased to share this featured article. You can check it out here: Behind Alias Josie
