We count our lucky stars to be able to work together creating pictures for the best clients on earth!
Here's a bit of timeline:
SilverBox was founded by Amy and Kim who first began shooting together in 2003. By 2010 the amazing Annika Miller (who'd been our lighting and shooting assistant throughout her college career) was all grown up and excited to build SilverBox Seniors! Next step: studio space! In 2011 we opened warehouse studio in Columbia's Art District, sharing the space with Hoot Design Co (a graphic design business of SilverBox bride, Kristen Brown).
The combined SilverBox and Hoot Design Co allows for one-stop shopping. SilverBox brides can benefit from Hoot Design Co. wedding stationery. When that couple expects their first baby, they come back to the studio at 107 Orr Street for birth announcements as well as maternity and newborn pictures. At holiday time, Hoot Design Co designs custom greeting cards around the family photographs SilverBox creates.
Plus, our Berry Building neighbors offer amazing collaborative opportunities. Both Studio Home and PS Gallery have become great partners and friends on many levels. Amy explains: "Years ago, as newcomers at an international photography conference, Kim and I heard a keynote speaker say “build a mountain of friends” -- advice that we took to heart. We joined forces, establishing a look, a work ethic and a brand that laid the foundation for growth. Now we walk into our studio feeling lucky, not just because we do what we love, but because we do it alongside friends. Together we challenge and learn from each other and together we look for creative solutions. We have expanded the team carefully and thoughtfully, and the result is expanded possibilities and very happy clients. Life is good."
