There are town and county approvals before I even begin demolition on the interior of the building that will be the indoor shooting space.

The response was positive apparently […]

At home in the early morning: Madison sneak peek

I stay up late. I like working in a dark quiet house. It feels like time stands still and I can accomplish so much more in the wee hours. However, there is downside to my late night leanings. I am not a morning person – getting out of bed, getting my coffee, getting dressed….. these […]
