Sneak a boo .......

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!!

Did I mention that I love my job???

I am delighted to have a wonderful work week planned and just want to mention a few people who will be there to share it with me. I start out the week shooting a teensy weensy but very glamorous powder room designed by the always so lovely, Andrea Johnson who was recently featured in the September issue of BC Home. Then jetting out to Calgary to work with Sarah Swanson and Erica Cook. Two designers in whom I've adored their work. Sarah and I met through blogging and I can't tell you how many times I've drooled over some of the spaces she's shared. This girl has got talent and I'm just giddy on having the opportunity to work with her. Erica Cook and I recently met at the Blend 2011, here in Vancouver. This girl is just amazing. I feel like I've known Erica my whole life and that I'm going to visit an old friend. We'll see what trouble I can get into with Erica and hope to post the spaces soon. These are the type of people I get to work with ..... I do love my job!!

Have a wonderful week everyone!
