The hunt is still on!
I never knew that looking for a new photography studio in Grand Rapids, MI would be harder than finding one in Chicago!
Lucy and I have been spending our mornings walking, driving, and cruising around the Grand Rapids area trying to find that perfect spot to call home for my next studio! It's definitely a great sign that small businesses are thriving in the area - all the shops and boutiques are filled with small stores and awesome restaurants and breweries! Grand Rapids really seems like a great place to be, even though my studio in Chicago was probably as perfect as it gets :)
East Grand Rapids sure seems like a wonderful place to set up shop! I read an article the other day that East Grand Rapids was voted one of the top 10 cities to raise a family in, which was very reassuring! Between Rose's Restaurant, The Lifestyle Kitchen Studio, and everything in between, I'd love to be somewhere in that mix! I have myself on a waiting list as soon as a space comes open, but for now, I'll just have to be patient :)
We drove up to Rockford and Ada to check out their downtown areas this morning - both are absolutely adorable! Along with looking for a great studio, I've found some really great places to live in that area, once that time comes when we'll need a bigger house!
If anyone has any leads on a great retail space in the area, feel free to shoot them my way! I can't wait to get out there and start photographing some newborns!
