I finally got pictures taken of some of my work!  I’ve been meaning to do this for a long time and am so grateful to Emily of Emily Barker Photography for taking such beautiful shots.

I’ve been working with this particular client for two years, now. I love designing for her because she’s so open, and trusts me to take the reins and run with it. She originally hired Sarah and I (I worked with Sarah Brittain before I went out on my own) to design her formal living room and an awkward space next to the entry, which screaming for a purpose. We designed the living room as a library of sorts and turned that awkward space into an “entry office”, where any mail would get sorted and bills would get paid.

At this point, Sarah had moved to Florida and I was, now, working on my own. The client wanted this room to be more casual and comfy than the living room, a place for the family to hang out on a regular basis. This was one of my favorite rooms to design.

I did learn a few things about styling and getting the spaces “camera ready”. It’s quite a tedious undertaking and I will definitely be hiring an assistant for the next shoot. 
Thanks so much, again, Emily!! You’re so talented!



Have you heard of UPLO?

It’s a website & app that enables you to organize your personal photos and buy or sell photography as printed art. UPLO is great for so many reasons. If you’re looking for unique artwork to hang in your home, the site has a huge variety of prints that members have uploaded and put up for sale. If you want to hang your own photographs in your home, UPLO will print and frame whatever photos you want. It even offers you a platform to sell your own photographs to people all over the world.

UPLO has so many talented photographers that participate. One of my favorites is Nicole Cohen, Sketch42 is her UPLO username.

I absolutely adore her Oreos gallery.

These would look so cute as a grouping and hung in a kitchen or dining area!

Here are some of her other photos that I’m swooning over.

UPLO makes that process a little less painful. So, if you’re in the market for some fun photography or you have your own photos you want to print, I urge you to go visit the site.
