Around this time last year I heard that the amazing studio at 23 market place, Arbroath was going to be available… I didn’t think twice, I wanted it! Going into it I knew the overheads etc would be huge but I figured they were worth it for such an amazing space. What I didn’t predict was that the stresses of running such a large studio would steal the love I have for photography. I ADORE what I do and I love that it is the type of career that I can balance extremely well with my home life and my children. However add a large studio and everything that goes along with it, it becomes not as flexible and enjoyable as it used to be.
It is for this reason that almost exactly a year to the day of taking on the studio I have decided to give it up! This isn’t a decision I have taken lightly and Ive spent a lot of time agonising over it as it really is a spectacular and awesome space. Now that I have made the decision final though I feel excited and positive to be going back to my roots of being a mobile photographer! I can’t wait to fill my car with lots of lovely props and be welcomed into the homes of all my new wee families.
I would like to make it very clear this is by no means a precursor to Newborns by Nicola closing its doors at all, I LOVE what I do and I will be continuing, just mobile and happier!
The studio will close its doors on the 17th March. All those booked in have been contacted already and I do have a few spaces left before I hand back the keys if anyone wants to book a session in the studio.
After this I will be fully mobile, visiting clients homes. The great thing about sessions in your home is they are super relaxed, no panics because baby has just scoffed its last bottle and you have no more milk or because your toddler has been car sick on the way in etc. And please don’t worry that I will be expecting to arrive at your home to a gleaming house fit for a queen… I have 3 kids and a home that looks like a tornado has hit most of the time so I know exactly what it is like with kids, especially new arrivals! This will also allow us to take some more relaxed, documentary style images of your family around your home if you would like to do that, perhaps in babies nursery 🙂
I am so excited for the future of Newborns by Nicola!
