For quite some time now all I've been wanting to do is open a studio; a place where I can meet clients, a place to for me to be able to do certain type of shoots and a place to call my own. Reality finally set in a couple of months ago when I found the perfect little spot. You may or may not know, I grew up in the Martial Arts industry and until I started doing photography that was all I knew. My parents opened up their first Martial Arts facility in the Clear Lake area 19 years ago this June and it was mine & my brother's home away from home. As the years went on we opened up two more facilities and our main location in Clear Lake grew, we added more buildings and are still expanding. With our expansion, a few years ago, my parents built a nice size office in the back of our main facility and it wasn't really used much. I finally got the courage to ask if I could move in and without hesitation they both said yes. It was definitely something that I had been waiting a long time to do so I was beyond excited that my dream was actually coming true. I started planning it out in my head back in December and all I had to do was wait for the current tenant to move out completely and I could move in. Once April hit I was ready. I moved in and it became my new home away from home. The best part about it is that I grew up on the grounds where my studio is located so I couldn't be happier about my location. Its definitely my little slice of heaven.
I am beyond blessed that I was able to open up my studio and now have a place to do the things I have envisioned for this next step for my company. I hope you enjoy the tour, in photos, of my studio. You'll definitely need to come visit in person though!
Studio hours are by appointment only, if you'd like to come have a private tour don't hesitate to ask! :)

GO COOGS!!!!!! \\n/
WOW, what a year!!! I don't even know where to start!! I want to first say that I have been truly blessed this year, my business has grown so much and is still growing! I have been so very grateful for all of the amazing clients I have had over the past year and no session was ever the same. I was exposed to so many different clients and I have been so happy for each and every opportunity that came my way. This year was a very trying year for me and I am happy to say that I pulled through and came out even stronger than before. It has been a lot of trial and error and finding out what works and what doesn't definitely takes time and I think Im happy to say that even though Im still very much learning a lot I think I have finally found what works for me and my company.
I hope to continue to grow my company more and more each day and be blessed and honored to photograph more beautiful faces along the way! I can't wait to see what 2013 brings and hoping that it brings everyone health, happiness and prosperity!! It has truly been an honor to work with all of the amazing people I worked with over the past year. I started off last year with a 50th wedding anniversary for one of the sweetest couples I have ever met and I will be ending it today with a family session! Below are just some of the sessions I shot over the year, if I put all of them up you guys would be here too long. ;) I definitely grew a lot as an artist and can't wait to grow even more!
I will be starting off 2013 with some personal projects and a wedding!!! Im super excited and can't wait! Im ready to share with you all the next chapter in my life as well as in the people that I meet along the way.
I hope you all have an amazing New Year and live each and everyday as it was meant to be lived, to the fullest!
I want to leave you all with this: Smile every where you go, laugh when unnecessary, cry when needed, hug a little harder even if its too tight, kiss those whom you love longer and just be YOU! The world needs more people like the one you are. Happy New Year Everyone!! xo~Layla
