i love this kid’s campaign for karen walker sunglasses. these 4 year olds really worked the camera, eh? the top photo is priceless.
this little blondie above answered her “what’s your favorite animal?” question on the KW website just like i would…”Zebras because they’re very stripy.”

i wasn’t exactly looking to get a new studio space right away, but sometimes the opportunity presents itself and you find the need to jump on it. when i found out about the unique space in the arts district (see more here) i figured i would head over and take a look. they had an open space for rent so i gave it some serious thought that week. here’s the photos…
we are fitting 3-4 people up in this space right now and we find ourselves a little crammed on the days that we are all in the office. however the bigger issue than that is the need for a photo area. i am constantly looking for places to shoot blog content since my space isn’t big enough and i think it would really benefit the blog to have an area that’s set up and ready to go. it won’t be the location for every shoot, but i think it will be great for DIYs, recipes, products and even some simple style posts.
so i decided to take the leap for my business (gulp.) my three requirements for a new space were natural light, the ability to paint it white, and an area that i could shoot and hold small workshops. this space had all three of those.
the walls are still being built, and we are sourcing painting right now. i know a lot of you on instagram thought i was crazy for wanting to paint the space white. believe me, i think the wood + bricks are beautiful in their original state…but i have my heart totally set on painting it. white bricks are one of my favorite elements and i think it will be so beautiful for photos.
our workspace itself is around 700 square feet but in the unique space there is a community kitchen, loft, library, event space that i can use for blogshop or other events, a conference room, and a rooftop hangout area. all of those things made the price jump from my current space worth it.
we move next month and are getting very excited about the decorating process. we will keep you updated along the way!
ps. there is going to be a co-work area downstairs if you are interested in having a place to bring your laptop, use wifi and meet other creatives. check out the kickstarter project here and watch the video about the space here…
