Had a wonderful shoot with one of my favorite clients/friends – Christine at CP Fusao.   Met a new model named Viktoria (Russian decent and awesome).  We shot Christine’s Jewelry and had a great time.

Last week was our first week of shooting in the new studio and what a week it was!  Every day was filled, and Mark kept up like a trooper with ice packs for his back and heat for his elbow.  But at the end of each day the satisfaction of being able to produce fantastic images for our clients was the reward for his pain.

Our clients are LOVING the new studio!  We had a client fly in from Texas, and one who drove from S. Carolina because they saw Mark’s website and loved his work.  Mark is thrilled to find that his lighting (we all know how important his lighting is to him!!) is going to further evolve because of the additional room he has for shooting.

So all in all it was a great “Grand Opening” and we are thrilled with the client feedback we are getting (as well as the feedback from our wonderful make-up artists Lisa Walker (Face2Face) and Kat Flynt (KatFlynt.com).  Everyone has said the studio feels like you are walking into a home, and that was our ultimate goal in everything we chose to “outfit” the studio with.  We couldn’t be more thrilled!  Attached is a few photos of model Stephanie who came down to help Mark test his lighting before we opened.  THANKS STEPHANIE!

As you may or may not have heard, Casual Elegance Photography is moving into our new location in Sandy Springs, GA.   Although this is just a few miles south of our present studio, it is easier to get to and is more spacious in terms of shooting room, which gives Mark greater latitude with his shooting.

It has a real project to get it all together due to Mark’s fall, and the injuries he sustained, but it has also been fun for us to work on it together, and to watch it all materialize slowly but surely.

We are excited that we already have 5 shoots scheduled for next week, and have done a commercial shoot for another tenant in the building already as well.

Over the next couple of weeks we’ll be offering some “Grand Opening” specials so keep an eye out!
