Photography Business Resources During the Coronavirus -- Loans, Grants, Unemployment Benefits

Uncategorized Mar 29, 2020

Hi friends,

I know how tough the last few weeks have been with closing down our studios and canceling sessions.  I also know that a lot of people are stressed out about financial obligations now that they're unable to work.  Thankfully, we have some options.

My Favorite Newborn Tieback/Headband Holder!

props studio organization Jan 09, 2019

I'm ALWAYS asked about the tieback holder, because it's a gorgeous and efficient way to store and display all those dainty tiebacks. So I thought I'd make a post about it!  

I bought this from JBV Woodworks on Etsy.  He doesn't open his shop often, so you'll want to watch our facebook group for photographers for updates  (his wife updates our group when he opens!).  And if you're lucky enough to snag one, you will thank me forever and ever.

Today, he opened his shop again and I ordered a double. I'll post an image when I get it. I can't wait!

I order the unfinished wood and chalk paint it with Renaissance chalk paint (Ivory Tower) from Amazon.
