About 10 months into a year of weekend side-projects (just for kicks and learning experiences) we had a shoot scheduled with two incredible dancers. We wanted to experiment with movement and natural interior light—but where to shoot? Orlando isn't exactly filled with high-ceilinged industrial spaces (or so we thought.)

We brainstormed for a few minutes, and remembered that local print shop Mama's Sauce had plans to move into a big empty warehouse west of College Park. They were still in the process of building out at the time, and we'd seen a few Instagrams of local businesses like Rifle Paper Co. and Barnlight Electric using the space to shoot. Our hopes were high.

Luckily for us, the good people at Mama's Sauce are as nice as it gets. When we walked in that morning, the space was even better than expected. The concrete floors and exposed rafters are just dreamy. Gorgeous light filters in softly through the old windows. 

Megan and Michelina leapt across the unforgiving concrete for several hours like complete champs. Our friend Wendi Stark helped with hair and makeup. 

A huge thanks to Mama's Sauce for the opportunity to shoot in this space before it's filled with massive printing presses. We hope the two dozen donuts showed our gratitude on some small level.
