Muraca Design and Studio Brocante

Retail, SpaceAndrea HubbellComment

I first met Sandy years ago when C-Ville Weekly hired me to take a portrait of her in her favorite space. When she got back in touch, wanting portfolio images for her website and product vignettes for her online store, I was thrilled. Who wouldn't want to spend hours with a talented designer, surrounded by French antiques, chatting about food, travel, and family?  We hit it off immediately and had a lovely couple of days building her image library.

Check out Sandy's shop, Studio Brocante, filled with pieces she has personally chosen while traveling in France. I'd like one of everything, please.

Rutledge Avenue Home - For Sale

Andrea Hubbell1 Comment

I am completely smitten with this home on Rutledge Avenue, listed by Loring Woodriff.  The owners are long-time friends and clients of mine, responsible for some of my favorite home shoots.  Check out Liberty Mills and Monticello Avenue for more of Holly's impeccable style. I have a feeling this one won't be on the market for long...

Just outside that door is this adorable back porch overlooking the backyard and play set...

Beautiful, newly-renovated kitchen...

Master bedroom...with a wood stove...

Upstairs...

Finished basement...

Back outside to that sweet little writer's studio...

Lifestyle + Product Imagery for Blanc Creatives

Andrea HubbellComment

I was honored when Corry asked me to create images for his new website and online shop (coming soon!). Brian and I have been admirers of his work for many years and are proud owners of many of his beautiful pieces. I was especially excited when Corry handed me creative control over his photographic brand...even in our back-and-forth discussion about material backgrounds and props he kept repeating 'I trust your eye'.  

To be respected by another artist is the best compliment of my work. Thank you, Corry!

Living Space - Tudor Grove

Living Space, SpaceandreaComment

Tudor Grove; a home and property steeped in history and filled with character. I was first introduced to her by Abby, whose mother, Camille, inhabits Tudor Grove's many walls. Having photographed Abby's home the previous year, I was especially excited to see Camille's, expecting a similar commitment of style applied to an historic context. Not disappointed, I spent my first visit eagerly soaking in each room trying, unsuccessfully, to take in every, single detail. Camille is a collector; of books, art, plants, photographs and natural curiosities, among other things. It is impossible to see it all at once and even now, many months later, I am still discovering pieces in the images that I missed with my naked eye. 

Welcome, to Tudor Grove.

Living Space is a personal project inspired by real spaces being inhabited by real people in a very real way. If you know of a home that would be a good subject for this series, please get in touch with me, here.

Market Street Market - Styled Table

Food, RetailandreaComment

I love working on styled shoots.  The meticulous detail and care that went into creating this image with Matt Thomas of Convoy speaks to the architect in me.  Convoy created a brochure for Main Street Market featuring all of the businesses enveloped within its walls.  I love how it turned out.

Virginia Distillery Company

Food, Spaceandrea1 Comment

I loved working with the Virginia Distillery Company to capture images for their new website designed by ID Company. We shot the first image of the bottle and glass in the C&O bar, a classic Charlottesville spot with moody lighting. Bottles are always challenging; bottles in a dark space are especially challenging and this image made me push myself in an exciting way.

The distillery is located in Lovingston and will soon feature a visitor's center where the public can learn more about their Virginia Highland Malt Whiskey!

Spaceandrea5 Comments

Our labor of love for the last 8.5 years, 402 Harris Road, is for sale!  Check out the MLS listing, #518455.  We really hope that this home's next owner loves it as much as we have.

And, I apologize for the number of images of our son's room.  I just couldn't help myself.  :)


ecoMOD South - UVA School of Architecture

SpaceandreaComment

When I was in in the master's program at the UVA School of Architecture I spent a semester working on the ecoMOD Seam project. It was an incredible experience working with other students and our professor and project creator, John Quale, to design and build a real home as part of our education. This summer I was thrilled to photograph the newest project, ecoMOD South, for their portfolio.  Here are a few of my favorite images.

 

Country House 2013

LifeandreaComment

I am just starting to emerge from the fog of having a newborn join our family.  Clyde is sleeping a bit more at night and is finding his way into happy, alert awake time during the day. This past weekend we joined friends for a weekend in Montross; our first nights away from home with Clyde.  We spent a weekend last November at this same wonderful house with these same fabulous friends, minus our two babies. It's amazing how much life can change in twelve months. Maybe next time we visit I'll figure out how to balance caring for and enjoying our son while also capturing photographs; the latter task was limited this year. Even so, these are memories I don't want to forget and I am glad we have a few moments captured at this beautiful place.

The Oakhurst Inn - Food

FoodandreaComment

The Oakhurst Inn, opening late this fall, will have a cafe headed by chef Jeanette Peabody (formerly of Hamiltons'). I spent an afternoon with Jeanette photographing a few of the dishes she has planned for the menu...and tasting them, too! With food like this, guests aren't going to ever leave!

The Granary - Natural Retreats

Life, Spaceandrea2 Comments

Looking for a getaway within reasonable driving distance to Charlottesville? Search no further. Natural Retreats offers a variety of homes for a family vacation or weekend retreat in Bath County, VA.  I was there in June to photograph a number of these unique homes and fell in love with several, but one in particular: The Granary. I loved it so much that I returned two weekends ago with Brian and the pups in tow.  See the bottom of this post for some of our Instagrams from our stay.
