… in Las Vegas in June of 2016. It was my first time actually running my own business, so naturally, I loved that place like it was my literal flesh and blood. It was so much more than an experimental playground for my photography; it was my big chance to share my talents, knowledge, and ideas with the world. It instantly elevated my career to entrepreneur-status, as I was scheduling new clients almost every single day. I remember feeling so cool waking up at 6am every single day to go to work at my fully-licensed portrait studio in the heart of the most visited city in the entire world.
What happened next was life-shattering. In June of 2017, almost exactly one year after opening, someone backed a vehicle into the back door of Studio Redfox. They pried it open, went inside, and left with over 11 grand worth of studio equipment. We filed a report, but as far as I know, the thief (or thieves) were never caught. How would they? The security camera wires were all cut, the DVR box was missing, and there wasn’t much left for the investigators to fingerprint.
I couldn’t believe it. In less than 24 hours my life was turned upside-down. At that point I knew it was time to finally make some changes I had been wanting so desperately to see in my life. In July, we closed Studio Redfox, and I said goodbye to Sin City for good. My boyfriend and I packed up my Jeep with as much as we could fit, with the help of my Shiba Inu puppy, Koko – and we hit the open road for a very, very long drive to a brand new city, closer to home, where I would hopefully have better luck. One day soon I will have another photography studio, but until then, my apartment will suffice. So give me a call and let’s book a session! You’ll be one of the many patrons of the future: Studio Redfox: Atlanta!
Redfox: Atlanta, here I come!
