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.

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!

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.

When Tina and Mark, owners of Fosteria Design and Woodworks, contacted me about styling and photographing their designs they asked if I had any thoughts about where we might set up our shoot. I came up with some ideas and met them at their home to see the pieces in person...and completely fell in love with their beautiful, historic farmhouse. Tina has done a wonderful job with the interior, using soft neutrals and natural materials throughout each room. It was the perfect setting to photograph their lovely designs, which are all made with reclaimed wood and found objects.

Tina and Mark are a talented duo, designing and crafting clocks, coat racks, furniture (check out Mark's desk!) and even delicate candlesticks. Rather than photograph their pieces in a generic setting without context, I wanted to capture them in a lived-in space that would add to the personality of their brand. Tina and I worked to style each vignette while Mark moved and hung clocks and coat racks where we asked. It was a great day, and I am so pleased with the images captured!

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

looking back on 2011

Food, Life, Retail, Spaceandrea3 Comments

The last was my first full year devoting 100% of my working time to Andrea Hubbell Photography. Looking back on the last 12 months I can't help but feel proud, humbled, and most of all, so very appreciative. For having the opportunity to chase this big, BIG dream. For all of the people who have made this my reality. For all of you..the family, friends, clients, and colleagues who have put your trust in me. And for Brian, without whom none of this would be possible. 

2010 was for making changes and a big, big leap. 2011 for chasing dreams and surviving. 2012 will be for seizing the reins, being proactive, taking chances...challenging myself to be and do better, every single day.

I wish you all a happy, healthy, inspiring 2012!

[here are some of my favorites from 2011...thank you, each one of you, for an amazing year!]

 

liberty mills residence for loring woodriff

Spaceandrea1 Comment

This may be my dream country home. Situated 25 minutes outside of Charlottesville in Somerset (close to Montpelier) on a gorgeous, rolling property with Rapidan River frontage, this C. 1856 house has been beautifully renovated by architect Kevin Davis. Remember his family's lovely Charlottesville home that I photographed last spring? You can imagine my excitement when I was called again to photograph this residence of his, which has been perfectly decorated by Kevin and his wife, Holly. I couldn't stop exclaming over the fabrics, textures, furniture and details they used throughout; loving the mix of modern and traditional pieces.

This home is for sale and represented by Loring Woodriff.  

the stone walls at the front of the property are really lovely.

love this downstairs hall space. especially the color, which brian and i painted our bedroom 8 months ago! benjamin moore kendall charcoal.
