Article x No Whey Lady - Outdoor Furniture

Jenna of No Whey Lady partnered with the furniture company, Article, to re-design her condo balcony for the launch of Spring. No Whey Lady is a wellness blog that covers recipes, nutrition, women’s health, and mental health.

The goal of this project was to photograph Article’s outdoor furniture products in a lifestyle setting and show that the furniture can be used in both indoor and outdoor settings. It was important for Jenna to incorporate easy ways to share Article in the content she normally posts, so I took photos of her grilling veggies, playing with her dog, and drinking a health tea on and around the furniture. We also had Anastasia Andenmatten provide us with some beautiful flowers to style the scene.

The images were used on No Whey Lady and Article’s blog and social channels. Below is a sample of work from the project.

TERYN GREY x Stinson Beach Greyhounds

I had the pleasure of working with Teryn Grey last month and I'm finally getting around to posting about it. It's been a busy, busy start to 2018! This was a unique session for me and I can't wait to share these images with you. 

Tara is the woman behind Teryn Grey, a Santa Barbara based Lifestyle blog that incorporates Greyhounds into her work. I have photographed dogs a few times, but this was my first time working with animals at this scale. The goal of this shoot was to incorporate eleven, yes eleven, Greyhounds from Golden State Greyhound Adoption into different images through out the day.

The session took place on the private estate of Willow Camp Estate in Stinson Beach. The house was built in 1917 and you can really feel the history throughout the entire home. We used various rooms around the home and backyard to incorporate different looks and Greyhounds.

One of my favorite rooms of the property had a large fireplace with a window that overlooked the Pacific Ocean. This was the darkest room in the home and it's where we decided to shoot a group shot of the Greyhounds at the end of the day. I was unsure of how these would turn out given the minimal light and unpredictable behavior of the dogs, but they ended up being some of my favorite shots that day.

For this session, I rented a 35mm lens and I ended up using it the entire day. I think it's safe to say that I'll be adding this lens to my collection in the future!

Weaving at Home with Amanda Holstein

I love photographing people in their home environments. There is something about people being in the environment of their daily routines that makes these sessions so comfortable and relaxed. I love the quiet surroundings and lack of distractions. You wouldn't be able to tell from these photographs, but I pretty much took off my shoes and made myself at home moving from the floor to the couch over and over again. 

I've had the opportunity to shoot Amanda in her dreamy Russian Hill studio a few times now and most recently shot her while weaving interior decor. I love the cool tones of her home with DIY artifacts that really give it that personal touch. Every time I shoot with her I always have multiple questions about where she finds different pieces around her home.

Amanda runs Advice from A Twenty Something, a blog with an advice column and so much more. These photographs were for a partnership she had with Skillshare, which is an online community with thousands of classes to learn all types of skills like weaving. After hearing about their site through Amanda, I spent some time browsing through their classes and I'm looking forward to trying out some of their photography courses. I normally use Creative Live for learning photography, but I'm excited to see how it compares.
