Professional Photographers

A mentor and very good friend of ours posted this article yesterday.  It is very interesting and sheds a different light on photographers.  It is a great read, take a look for yourself.

The New Robin Perrin Photography Studio

I am so excited about the new studio!  I am in love with the way everything turned out and can’t wait to start meeting with clients in the new studio.

The room looks totally different!  When we first moved in the room was basically a man cave.  There was a nice comfy couch with a TV so James could play PS3.  We also had a ping pong table, treadmill and weights.  The walls were covered with James’ sports memorabilia.  I promise I did not kick James out of the room.  It was his idea to change the room into a studio.  It actually took him a few months to convince me because I felt so guilty!  Finally, I caved and the room is now a studio.  These are just a few pictures of the room before.  I didn’t have many pictures because I never went into the man cave.


I wanted the studio to be fun!  We had a great time putting it together and had lots of help from the college girls.  Putting the room together was also a lot of hard work!  There was a lot of purchasing then returning and purchasing again and sometimes returning again until it was perfect.  The first thing we decided on was the wall color and I love the color we chose.  I wanted something bright and fun, and not too dark.  It ended up just right!  After a little pushing from the wonderful, Lisa Hanson (painter extraordinaire), we also decided to paint the ceiling and I am so happy we did.  We went a shade lighter and it was the right decision!  We bought most of the furnishings from Ikea and  Pier 1.  I love both of those stores and could live at either place!  James actually helped me put together most of the furniture from Ikea and he did a really good job.  He even made two trips to Ikea which is almost as amazing as him putting furniture together.  I also found a few things at antique stores.  I found the super cute coffee tables from an antique store and then painted them to match everything else in the studio.


My friend, Kalub, had the idea to add a candy bar to the studio.  I love it, except every time I am in the room I think I need a piece of candy.  Oh well!  I am so happy with all the canvas’ in the room.  I just love being able to see pictures of my sweet clients all over the room.  There are so many little things in the studio that make it so cute.  I really like the way the RPP turned out and it looks great hanging over the door.  The studio is exactly what I had pictured in my head and so many people helped make it a reality.  Thanks to those of you who helped with it.  For those of you that have not seen the new studio, I can’t wait to hear what you think about it.

May Already?

You might have noticed by now that is May 11 and I have never posted my May goals or given an update about my April goals.  That is because I didn’t realize it was May until Sunday evening.  Things have been extrememly busy here!  My prayers were answered and I did more senior sessions this year then ever before.  I am truely blessed to have amazing clients and to be able to do something I love.  I have loved each and every senior session!  This senior session sesason is coming to an end and I am a little sad.  For two weeks I had a session every day and I became so use to it.  It stressed me out to be so busy, but it was an answered prayer.  I learned a lot from this busy season!  Now that it is coming to an end, I just want a few more sessions.

Since things were a little busy during the month of April, my goals really didn’t get accomplished.  It disappoints me when I set a goal and don’t accomplish it, but this time it makes me excited.  I am so happy that I was busy taking senior pictures that I didn’t get around to my April goals.  The April goals will be moved to May and I will do better this month.

Downing Family – San Antonio Family Photographer

I feel like I am always saying “I love this family” or “This family is so sweet.”  I say it often because I have the best clients ever.  This family is no exception!  This is the Downing family and they are great.  Fran and I go to Bible study together and she had twin boys in December.  I finally got to meet Smith and Harrison and take a few pictures of the family.  Keep your eye out for more pictures of just the boys.
