living space 5 | a fry's spring family

Living Space, Spaceandrea1 Comment

This is the fifth installment of my living space series, in which I spend a few hours in a home capturing the details of the lives lived within its walls.

I was first introduced to Adrienne and her home when I photographed her children's playroom for Cville Abode. We have a mutual friend, Anita, and when I put a request on Facebook for my next living space home, Anita sent me Adrienne's information. I immediately recalled how much I loved the space she's created for her family, mostly from thrifting and salvaging unique pieces. This Fry's Spring bungalow nestled in the trees gave me the opportunity to really play with shadow, and I embraced the moodier feel of rooms when they are lit only by the light streaming through the craftsman windows. I love the subdued palette puncutuated by the ocassional pop of color and Adrienne's eye for spying beautiful pieces in unexpected places.

Thank you, Adrienne, for inviting me into your home!

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!

Last June, the day after I photographed this wedding, I found myself on the eastern shore of Virginia. I'd been asked to visit the community of Sandy Point to capture the essence of a home and its surrounding landscape in 20 hours. We arrived on Sunday afternoon and I immediately got to work photographing this +100 years old building that once functioned as a bunk house at a ferry boat landing just down the point. I fell in love with the charming, unpretentious nature of the place: the real wood paneling, the campy feel, the treasures found and placed years ago. I stayed the night, shared a meal with the property owners and heard stories of fish and birds and watercraft. We even went night fishing, a quietly exhillerating sport that relies solely on the sense of feeling the line on your fingertips.  The next morning we rose with the sun, ventured back out on the water and captured the community at its shore.

In 20 hours I formed a connection with Sandy Point; to the water and the shore and the pine forest that reminds me of Florida. I hope to visit again, one day soon. You can, too, as the house will be available to rent for weekends and longer. When I have more information on how you can do just that, I will share it here. Until then...

Sandy Point.

This is the third installment of my living space series, in which i spend a few hours in a home capturing the details of the lives lived within its walls.

This is the home of Sherry, John, Clara, and Burger, the folks (and dog) behind Young House Love. I know you're all wondering...are the four of them just as charming/funny/sweet/cute as they seem on their blog? Yes, yes they are. They were so kind to invite me in for my version of a house-crashing (check out their latest on the YHL blog...gah! That house is gorgeous!) and I was in lifestyle photo heaven with all of the details and love they've poured into their home. 

Thank you, Youngsters, for having me over. It was a pleasure to meet you and to capture these images of your lovely living space.
