Almost Christmas!

And once again it’s been a while since I wrote something in my blog! Have no excuse… if only I’ve been busy with a lot of Christmas photoshoots at my studio, listening to online photography courses, dealing with viruses and household. Everything is nice! I’m having few days off… spending under a blanket and with the teacup in my hand… […]

Living in the studio!

It seems that I’ve been living in the studio lately… Well, I love it! I don’t mind spending time in my own special world. It’s amazing how my days have changed ever since I open up the studio. I loved to blog and share “a day in the life of Latvian mom” but now I bearly have an idea or […]

Christmas in my studio

Well, I miss blogging a lot… sometimes I wish there were more hours in one day. A few weeks ago I made a Christmas corner at my studio. And since then I’m so festive :). I love my fake fireplace! How do you call it in English? Are you getting ready for Christmas!? Ilze

Yesterday

I’m easy on naming my blog posts… Friday, yesterday 🙂 Yesterday I thought I will do all the paperwork, but sadly Linna got ill – eye infection and stayed home. So, no paperwork for me. Plus the weather was terrible – windy, wet and cold! We had “coffee break” between house chores. Coffee for me and cocoa for Linna – […]

Friday

I thought I will stay at home today and do accounting… all the paperwork. Jānis took all the girls to the kindergarten to be sure I can take all the papers out… but he came back with Linna. Linna has an eye infection and that is something that is very contagious. Helmī had it about a week ago. Now Linna! […]

Crazy… but love it!

Two months as an owner of my own business! My first business :). I haven’t been in my comfort zone ever since! The journey so far was crazy enough. I love it! Perfect balance between workout (photoshoots) and time at the computer (photo editing). On Sunday I saw a squirrel – hanging upside down and looking for something. Exactly like me! […]

OMG!

It’s been a while! So.. a lot has happened in the past month. Biggest things are: Taking care of MY photo studio, one of three local kindergartens said no to the conveyor style photography company and choose me – basically, give me a chance to try capturing 280 kids in portraits and 13 group photos. I had to make an […]

Week After the Opening Party

This is the only picture I have of the studio opening with me! My hair looks crazy and lightening is “very flattering” 🙂 But it doesn’t matter! By the way, my brother also looks weird in this picture. I bet we are getting old. 🙂 The opening was overwhelming! Didn’t expect so many people. I forgot my outfit and Janis […]

Getting ready for the opening party!

Finally, all the cardboard boxes of studio equipment, buckets with color, used brushes from repair are sorted and out of the studio! Yesterday I washed the floor and this was my first time cleaning such a big room – 107 square meters (1151.74 square feet)! If you ask me I better clean 4 smaller rooms instead! But this will be […]

Opening

Finally, I’m (not) ready to open my photo studio! The Grand (is it?) opening will be on Saturday 25.08.2018 from 11:30 till 15:30. If you are in Gulbene – please visit! Most of the things gone wrong, but I feel it meant to be that way! For example, I ordered a big chesterfield sofa and received 3 boxes with just […]
