Luckily, I have not forgotten about this space, I’ve just been shooting and editing nonstop for the past 6 weeks that I haven’t had much time to take a breather. I promise to share my shoots as soon as I am able to! This one was a lot of fun, a modern studio in Boston designed by Barbara Vail of Galyean Vail and photographed for Homepolish. I love how open and airy she made this 650 square-foot studio feel, all of the nooks and crannies play an important role and work together beautifully. I also love that killer beach painting which Barbara was able to score for the client from the Brimfield antique show. Scroll to see more (and come back soon for more updates, I promise). :)
These were such fun photos to work on – a holiday interior shoot with Joss&Main, styled by (and photographed in the home of) the uber-creative Emily Starr. I love when holiday decor is simple, understated, and earthy yet designy (is that even a word?), and I feel like her ideas encapsulated all of that. Also, it doesn’t hurt that her cute little dog Bruno ends up in every shoot that we’ve had together.
It’s been a rainy day here, so I thought I’d dig up some rainy photos from the travel archives – a trip we took last year to the national parks around Seattle. A few highlights of our trip:
- Mount Rainier National Park, and seeing snow-capped Mount Rainier up close
- The greenery of the Hoh Rain Forest in Olympic National Park
- Lake Quinault Lodge
- The world’s largest Sitka Spruce (you can see Dan below standing beside it) – 191 feet tall!
- Watching the sunset at Cape Flattery – the most northwestern point in the continental US
- Walking the Dungeness Spit
- Taking the ferry from Bainbridge Island was a great way to see the Seattle skyline
A short post today on something fun and inspiring that I recently discovered (and something outdoorsy you can still do even this late in the year) – sunset viewing on Wachusett Mountain. I’m a big believer in seeing as many sunrises and sunsets as I can. Since I’m not the world’s best morning person, the sunrise part is tricky. But sunsets are something that I am pretty good about seeing. Here are the details on this one. Drive to Wachusett Mountain State Reservation (about an hour or so from Boston). Park at the base of the auto road, walk to the other parking lot (the one near the Visitor Center) and take the Bicentennial Trail/Pine Hill Trail less than a mile up to the summit. There’s an observation tower that you can climb up for even better views. Hang out for a gorgeous sunset, then descend the way you came. The trail down was actually not too dark for us, but if you’re unsure you can use your iPhone flashlight (or bring your own flashlights). A great end-of-weekend activity – we went on a late Sunday afternoon and it was very calming and beautiful. Enjoy!!
