I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I just got back from shooting a couple of spaces in Calgary and am in a flurry of craziness, editing all the goods. I've had many people asking to see some of what we shot but I just can't let you in on that .... yet. But in the meantime, I thought I would give you a tiny glimpse into what I have been up to in the last week. Andrea Johnson Residence: Powder Room
Right before I left for Calgary, I shot a lovely powder room, designed by the extremely talented, Andrea Johnson. I've worked with Andrea a few times and each time has been such a treat! Her cat Oliver made a home in my camera bag quite nicely and her dog Piper made it known that she was there to assist me too. I must say it IS the smallest space I have had to shoot yet. All you do in a powder room is powder your nose right? Boy...I tell you, it is a glamorous job when you have to squish up beside the toilet and a wall to get THE shot. Keep your eyes peeled for this one in an upcoming BC Home issue.
Sarah Swanson Residence:
I travelled to Calgary to meet this girl.... her space "wowed" the editors at Alberta Home and it was worth the trip! I want to thank Sarah for being such a trooper in having me around ALL DAY shooting her beautiful home. There were so many fabulous rooms and vignettes around every corner ...... what is a photographer to do but capture them all! She has done such a beautiful job in designing her home. I look forward to seeing more of Sarah's projects in the future. Thanks again Sarah for lunch and the best ice tea ever!!!
Erica Cook Residence:
What can I say ..... Erica and I are like soul sisters. Neither of us have sisters and I would like to think this is what it would be like to have one. I spent two entire glorious days with Erica and her family of 5 boys. I loved the craziness that surrounded me as I went from room to room photographing Erica's gorgeous home. My jaw dropped every time I walked into another room to shoot it .... I guess you can call it eye candy to a photographer that shoots interiors. Seriously, I was chomping at the bit to see more. We polished my visit off with a fabulous dinner out to celebrate a new friendship.
Besides my camera bag and suitcase, I took home this adorable little cup with a box of matches. Thank you Erica!!
