The Latest

Soft Opening Live Art Event

We hosted our soft opening and it was a huge success this past February. It was great to see all of our passion and efforts come together in one evening.  

We had amazing feedback from all artists and guests involved. 5 painters, live music, a personal chef paired food with wine provided by Ruths Chris’ and beer from City Built Brewery.


Giving Back To High School Seniors

With the funds raised from the event we are working with students from East Kentwood, Ottawa Hills and Kellogsville. We are taking them out for a day of fun and education as we teach them about the art of photography as a creative outlet.

Local salon Head of the Pride is going to pamper the guys and then we will head to Carbon Stories studios to set up and shoot senior portraits. After the session we will take a limo provided by Affordable limousine to get lunch provided by Outback Steak house.
