I Heart Faces Inspiring Photography Studio Tour {Keri Kay Photography}


We are excited to bring you another installment of our Inspiring Photography Studios series. This month, we invited Keri Holcombe of Keri Kay Photography to share her beautiful studio space with us.  Her attention to detail is evident from the moment you enter the century home in which her studio is located, from the charming chalkboard welcome to the beautiful blue and white color scheme and the vintage accents.  We know you are going to love this space!

My photography studio is the upstairs of a nearly 200-year-old house, which had been turned into a business building many years ago. It has a certain charm that can only be found in old houses with a lot of history.

The “pretty room” is used as a waiting room/consultation room and I do a little bit of natural-light shooting in there. I found the table and chairs at Goodwill and my mom painted them white and covered the once-hideous seats with a blue fabric to match the walls. About those walls… she also picked the paint color. Thanks, mom- I totally would have gone with beige! (I hate admitting that, but it’s the truth.) I couldn’t be happier with the way it turned out, though. The wall color actually inspired my branding colors.

Behind the lace curtain is a mess of extra storage. “Pay no attention to the mess behind the curtain!” The entire room slopes to the right(remember that old-house charm I told you about?) and it makes my clients feel as if they had a margarita or two. I don’t even notice it anymore. I wish I did though!

The other room is my main shooting room where I shoot with studio lights. I have a couch for new parents to relax and take naps on while I shoot, and a scentsy warmer to reduce the “old-house smell” to a much more pleasing-to-the-nose ,“Newborn Nursery” scent. Yay for that!  One corner has a changing table with diapers, wipes, lint rollers, diaper covers, onesies, nursing covers, etc, and a bulletin board full of thank-you notes and cards.

Another wall is what I call “basket city”. (No explanation needed, there). Another corner is home to another Goodwill find, my desk. (Which is jealous of the chairs in the next room because I don’t have the time or knowledge to paint it in a cool and vintagey way.)

Clients love browsing through my collection of hats, diaper covers and wraps, which I have hanging on a clothesline. (Hopefully, they are pretty enough to distract from the desk.) Baby-girl headbands and baby-boy ties are hanging from the fireplace mantle.

Beneath that is a sign that reads, “Enjoy this moment for this moment is your life.” I do. With every photo shoot… I do.Beautiful in-home Photography Studio Tour!

i was wondering what is the beautiful paint color on the walls? It looks like a very light turquoise or aquamarine. If you have the name and who makes it please let me know I’m setting up my art studio and I think this color with white would be gorgeous together.
