There is the sweetest little store gaining in popularity in Ivanhoe Village. Your Orlando Photographer scoped it out while looking for a potential host site for our annual Mother’s Day charity mini sessions. Read that link if you missed the blog post update about that event recently! This week’s blog includes a question and answer section with the owners of this store where our event took place.
The store’s aesthetics were perfect for us…so perfect that we didn’t even have to haul out the background equipment. The shop in this historic district has an amazing exposed brick wall painted white. It gave us great results, naturally!
The forward thinking owners of Paper Goat Post, twin sisters Megan and Cedar Watson already host special events and other unique workshops in the store so it had the perfect space to host our event. They were so amazing and fun to work with. We couldn’t get enough of the funny, handmade cards, the baby gift section and the unique gifts they have to offer.
We wanted to know more about the visionaries behind this trend setting shop so we asked!
Do yourself a favor and take a stroll down Ivanhoe Village (starting at Paper Goat Post)!
It’s so quaint, there are lots of new restaurants, antique and specialty shops and the people are awesome!
Here are the answers Megan gave us to some questions you may also have about this business:
Does your business have a stated mission statement, the reason that this business exists?
Yes… we have three PGP Philosophies:
the lost art of snail mail
gathering in celebration
the thoughtful art of giving
How has the business evolved over time?
We stay keen to our customers & their needs. This has allowed us to grow in a direction that best services our customers.
What should a client expect when he/she comes to you?
We celebrate everything (with a little or a lot of paper). We are here to help our customers design the perfect invitation suite, choose a thoughtful gift or find just what they need to celebrate everything.
What makes you so unique?
We have an in store balloon & gift wrap bar. We specialize in our 3 ft “Billy Balloons” which make a fun & unique statement at any celebration. We also have The Studio which is a creative space in our store where we hold workshops & private events.
What are you most proud of with your business?
That we were able to follow our dreams of sharing our love for paper with others. We had always dreamed of opening a shop and took a leap of faith in 2015 to do just that. We haven’t looked back since.
What community events do you support or sponsor?
We love to pop up at local community events around town. We feel that so many of life’s celebrations happen at your home. For that reason, we focus on supporting the local Habitat for Humanity which is an organization that helps build homes for those in need.

This is an annual thing that we do here at Tamara Knight Photography in order to participate in the greater community around us. However, we do have an amazing studio where we offer full glamour photography sessions!
A photograph is the best present for any occasion – it is a timeless capture of an existing moment.
