This is possibly one of the most exciting blog posts I will ever write… I am opening a photography studio! It has been my dream since high school (no joke) to be a studio photographer and to have a space where I can create timeless images for people.
This was absolutely a stretch goal for myself in 2024, but things just came together and my dream was realized faster than I ever could have imagined.
I am so sad to see Hive leaving their space after 5 years, but I can’t wait to make everyone proud with the new use in this perfect spot! I will absolutely post updates to my social media as I transform 126 E Innes St into a photography studio, so please follow along on Facebook and Instagram if you aren’t already!
There’s also a hair salon inside!

I wanted to create a blog post to dive a little more into details for the new studio & salon. And honestly, just share how freaking excited I am. To make this studio even more perfect, there is a hair salon inside with two amazing stylists already – Aurora and Mandi. If you’re looking to book these women outside of your portrait sessions, you’ll be able to do that on my website.
I’ve always dreamed of having a studio, but being able to provide hair & makeup to portrait clients will be a huge win for everyone! It will make getting ready for your portraits a breeze and you can have it done just feet away from where your portraits will take place.
The next step in opening my photography studio is BRANDING! Just like any creative person just starting out, I always created my own logo or simply used a design from Etsy. Well, I hired a real designer and she is helping me create a new logo and a cohesive brand for the studio moving forward. I will share all these new details very soon! I can’t wait to share the new look and feel.
To be very real with you – there are going to be tears when my name is on those storefront windows. I’ve already had a few moments of happy tears and pinching myself, but I will cry like a baby when this dream starts to take shape.
After branding is finalized, I will order the decals for the front windows and then it’s time to move in!
Studio Photography Begins…
The plan is to have the studio space ready for portrait clients mid-March. My Grand Opening & Ribbon Cutting will be on March 30th.
If you would like to pre-schedule a portrait session, I would be ELATED to have you in my studio! Just reach out here!
As mentioned in the social media post, I am going to get heckin’ creative! Haha I think I just made that word up. There will be at least 2 different spaces that will showcase temporary artistic installations (by yours truly) for really amazing & different portraits!
If you are a local business in Salisbury or close by and would like to collaborate, PLEASE reach out to me! I can’t wait to do amazing things with the people & businesses in Salisbury. I love to think that when one of us succeeds, we all succeed together.
The photography studio will be available to rent to other photographers, I can’t wait to share more details on that! I think of this place as not only a really exciting next step in my photography career, but a collaborative & creative space to bring artists together.
If you’ve read this far – THANK YOU! I can’t wait to be the “new kid” on the block and get all settled in. Your love & support mean everything to me and we are going to create AMAZING portraits together.
Get in front of my camera in 2024! Let’s make some magic!
