A good part of my winter was spent working with Heather Halsey, editor of The Scout Guide - Charlottesville, to create the fifth volume in the beautiful Charlottesville series. What a pleasure!!! Each photo shoot was so different, with a wonderful variety of people, spaces, and products to capture. Below are a few of my favorite spreads.
Be sure to pick up the new book, available in shops and restaurants all over Charlottesville! You're sure to find inspiration cover-to-cover.
Thank you, Heather, Susie and Christy for folding me into your awesome team! xoxo.
Our team: Heather Halsey + Andrea Hubbell. Many thanks to Cramer Photo for capturing my portrait. :)
Charlottesville is filled with so many young, talented artists. Painter Kiki Slaughter is one of them, and her contemporary home/studio/gallery was one of the featured spaces in the October issue of Abode. I love the neutral interior of her country cottage that allows her art to shine. Pick up Abode to read more about Kiki and her beautiful space!
The second live/work space featured in the October ABODE is the home studio of interior designer Jeannette Andamasaris, of JAID. I love her eclectic taste and mix of old and new, as well as the abundant light that pours through the windows of her 2nd floor loft. Pick up the issue, on stands now, to read Jeannette's story!
The newest Cville ABODE is on stands now! The feature story this month focuses on the live/work studios of three local women; two artists and one designer. I loved meeting each of these women and photographing their lovely, creative spaces. Each deserves their own post, and today I am starting with painter Abby Kasonik's backyard studio. I love the bright, open space with oversized plants and a collection of unique found objects.
Tucked behind a beautiful historic archway in downtown Staunton lies a modern loft worthy of a New York City address. Converted from a garage, the two-story home of Katie and Ty makes good use of every nook and cranny, including the often-overlooked space beneath the stairs.
Check out this month's ABODE for the full story.
There's a whole lot of Andrea Hubbell Photography in the Best Of C-Ville issue on stands now! We are so lucky to live in such an amazing city. Many congratulations to all the local people and businesses that received much-deserved recognition.
And, there's a really sweet write-up of Beyond the Flavor, too!
Pick up a copy now...this is an issue you'll want to hold on to and reference for the next year!
Before the next issue comes out in another week...check out the Cville Abode June issue for the story behind this gorgeous Staunton home!
Even with two degrees in architecture, I cannot figure out how this stair is structured...
Check out this month's C-Ville Abode!!! There is lots of AHP between the covers...
The new Tablescape column! Such fun to style and photograph.
Mike and Karen Ball in the 'A Room of One's Own' column.
Feature story about three yurts in and around Charlottesville.
Many thanks to C-Ville for the opportunity to photograph such fun people, spaces, and food!
There has been a lot happening over on Beyond the Flavor these last few days!
We have Tucker Yoder from The Clifton Inn sharing his recipe for a Seasonal Garden Vegetable Medley.
C-Ville Weekly featured us in their Farm To Table issue, on stands today!
We covered the Blue Ridge Oyster Festival, and got rained on.
And have been busy playing with baby goats and ducks. We have a new post up on Beyond the Flavor every week...we hope you're joining the fun!
This season's issue of Edible Blue Ridge has a feature article about charcuterie...one of my favorite subjects! Many thanks to Collin Donnelly and The Red Hen in Lexington for this fun and informative photo shoot. And for the dinner it inspired a month later at The Red Hen, during which we (Brian, Sarah, Matt, and I) consumed one of those pig heads shown below. Yes...we did. And it was amazing!!!
I love my job, every day. But there are some days when I really, really love my job. Such as the two mornings that I spent in these lovely gardens outside of Charlottesville, capturing nature with my camera while absorbing the words of two very knowledgable ladies. Thank you, Cville, for offering me such wonderful opportunities.
Check out this month's issue of Abode, featuring architect Jim Tuley's last design. I love this modern home, which utilizes it's steep lot remarkably well. The homeowners' art collection is quite impressive, too.
A few of my favorites from the shoot...
I am so honored to have been asked to write, style, and photograph a story in the new wedding publication, The Clutch Guide. This bridal luncheon was inspired by the Friday lunch at Galatoire's we experienced during our last trip to New Orleans. For the recipes of some of our favorite NOLA dishes, check out pages 47-53 online.
Many thanks to Jennifer Prince of Hill City Bride for asking me to be part of such a beautiful publication!
To follow my images of Cate's home, I wanted to share this image from the March issue of Abode. It is the space of Iñaki Alday, chair of the Department of Architecture at UVA, and partner in the firm owned by he and his wife, aldayjover. I love this quote that Cate captured from Iñaki:
"A compliment we received from a photographer once was that our work is hard to photograph. We think this is good. It means the qualities are not obvious and staged in a way that looks like a set. I have a hard time with spaces that are designed only to look great in a photograph. Rooms are meant to be lived in." - Iñaki Alday
