Hi Friends! I've recently made some big changes to my photography business because I needed a fresh start. This year has been off to a rough start unfortunately, but I'm focusing on the good and I know it will come around to be a great year. The first change I made was to re-brand and re-name my studio - so I changed NinaMarie Studios to Blooming Portraits {seemed fitting for my fresh new start, plus I dig florals and greenery}. I also changed my branding colors, website design and logo. The next big change was moving my studio from downtown Stillwater to the lovely little main street of North St. Paul. My cute little studio is sandwiched between Neumann's Bar & Grill and a fun little Antique shop. Perfect since I love antiques and vintage props, but maybe not so perfect for my bank account :)

The space is a slightly smaller than my old studio, but it has forced me to get creative with my small space design, prop organization and shooting areas. I am in love with the natural brick wall already in the space and I can shoot both natural light and studio light. Just a dream. 

Here's a little taste of my new space, but you'll have to book a session to get the full tour!

This is beautiful Hazel. She was a sleepy little baby for her newborn session, making it easy to get different poses in baskets and on the bean bag. I could have literally photographed this baby for hours. Such a sweetie!!

Baby Audrey did so well during her first portraits! We put her in dad's army helmet, surrounded her with Christmas bulbs, dressed her in knits from No 2 Willow Lane, craddled her into bowls from TFJ Designs, and molded her into perfect little balls... all while she dreamed whatever babies dream when they are 9 days old :) Here is a little sneak peek for Audrey's studio newborn session! 

PS. Check out my new logo from Macarons and Mimosas. I am IN LOVE!
