La Vache Microcreamery

FoodAndrea HubbellComment

La Vache Microcreamery handcrafts caramels right here in Charlottesville, VA. I was thrilled to spend a morning with Stephanie, learning about her process and the ingredients that go into her artisanal treats while styling and capturing lifestyle images for her marketing materials. And, of course, I had to sample all of the flavors. They are as delicious as they are beautiful. Pick up your own at Roxie Daisy, JM Stock Provisions, or directly from Stephanie through her website.

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.

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.

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.

402 Harris Road - For Sale!

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.  :)


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.

Living Space | A Family Home in Greenwood

Living Space, Spaceandrea3 Comments

I adore this home outside of Charlottesville in Greenwood, VA. The Abbots have called this house, built 180 years ago as the Greenwood School for Boys, their home for nearly twenty years. Their three girls grew up here, as have their golden retreivers, leaving traces of family in every room. A true Living Space in every way, when I visited last December I knew I needed to return to document this special place.

The house itself is dripping with character, from uneven plaster walls to exposed beams across the ceilings, and is adorned with the simple, chic style of a family who loves comfort, nature and art. Each room is comfortably bright even on the grayest of days, nearly causing me to give in to the desire to curl up with a book or magazine on a slip-covered chair in a light-filled corner. With the family dogs pressing their noses to the glass doors, I moved through each room slowly and meticulously, taking moments to sit on a couch, touch a blanket, and observe the art on the walls, trying my best to imagine how the family who lives here inhabits each space.

Welcome to the Abbots'!

Scout is Out! Charlottesville Vol. 5

Food, Published, Restaurant, Retail, Spaceandrea3 Comments

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. :)

Meghann + Derek | Married 01.05.2013!

Lifeandrea1 Comment

Meghann and Derek were married at Birdsong Barn in Florida this January!  I loved the 'Rustic Snowflake' theme of their day; the textured barn wood and sparkly snowflakes complimented each other in a very appealing way. M + D were so adorable together; Derek's calm personality perfectly balances Meghann's bubbly nature. They laughed their way through their portraits, making silly faces at each other and causing fits of giggles that made them so much fun to photograph.  And the dancing!!!  They, and their guests, knew how to party.  What a fun night!

Meghann + Derek...congratulations!!!  Much love to you both.  xoxo, A

Brookville Cookbook

Food, RestaurantandreaComment

Photographing a cookbook has been a dream of mine for four+ years now, ever since I created Bella Eats in 2008. I am thrilled and excited to be working with one of the best chefs in Charlottesville, Harrison Keevil, and my Beyond the Flavor partner, Sarah Cramer Shields, to create the first Brookville cookbook.  Exciting things are in the works, friends!  2013 is off to a great start.

For a sneak peek of our first shoot, check in at Beyond the Flavor.  And, please consider donating to our Kickstarter campaign!  We'd be so grateful.
