Packing up and heading outta here!

I'm going to miss my new friends who drop in to spend some of their days with me.
I'm going to miss the best ever french fries sold next door.
I'm going to miss this big, huge studio and exhibit space!!!

But I'm more happy than sad. This has been an interesting learning process for me and I definitely understand the concept of things like:    LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION

This town is just not for me!

And I'm really happy to be closing this chapter of my life and moving on with the next.

Goodbye Nelsonville!

Greetings ladies...

You may have already heard... but I'm leaving Nelsonville and moving my work elsewhere.

There are many factors going into this decision:

1. This town is far too conservative for a free spirit like me.

2. The building has major issues with leaking water, mold in the walls, and now electrical issues (with bolts shooting out of a power box outside the building and 911 being dispatched in the middle of the night).

3. I realized that I'm not one for a normal customer-based photography studio. I sit in this place, waiting for people to come in an make appointments far more than I'd like to. It's more like a store than a studio... and that is just not for me.

4. I want a home studio where I can work on projects and book shoots... and when I'm not, it's private and not open to the public several times a day.

5. I would like to move on, to another town, and see if I can find like-minds who really value art and artists.

6. The Nelsonville square is DEAD. I mean DEAD. No one comes here unless you pull them by the hand. I mean, clients and my girls and friends come out... but when you look outside there is basically no signs of life. There is such a super high turnover for this area. It's sad really. It's so pretty here... but it's nothing like what it seems. Sigh...

6. And finally, I fell in love with the Marilyn & Me project... and found my true passion. I want to make women feel beautiful.... to do more projects like that and to shoot more boudoir.

I want to follow my love for Eye Candy.  But first I'm going to take a VERY LONG SABBATICAL - to take a break, regroup, get a new foundation started, and move Eye Candy ahead.

Cause Mama T is very tired.

Love to you all and come in and see me while you can!

An Eye Candy Girl Perk

 Brit and Brent's engagement photos. Unedited thus far but I really like them.

Free engagement photos (and maternity, etc)... And for big things like weddings, it's all at cost - so they just pay for the prints. My gift to them is my time (I stay from the moment they start getting ready until the reception is winding down) and editing. It's good to be an Eye Candy Girl.
