Where the idea came from…
I’m not a photographer. I’m a mom, a wife and an engineer. After my first son was born, I wanted to get pictures to capture his newborn stage, but didn’t know where to go. Like many parents, I resorted to taking him to the mall for photos. Yet while the photos were decent, the experience was less than enjoyable and left me wondering if it was worth it.
However, being a creature of habit, I continued to take him for updated milestone photos…until my second son was born and I was now taking in two children. I was tired of settling for whichever photographer was on staff and being limited to only minutes for a full sitting. I decided to research photographers and not only found several that were extremely talented and affordable, but also noticed that a growing number of people were simply taking their own photos. Yet none of these photographers had a studio.
And, while I love outdoor photos, Minnesota’s climate doesn’t exactly lend itself to year-round outdoor portrait settings. Most on-location photographers would either drastically reduce or completely shut down their businesses during our long winter months. Parents were limited to taking pictures in front of the fireplace year after year. That’s when I saw an opportunity, and UClick Studios – photo studios for rent – was born.
