Alabama Chanin Fashion Story [Birmingham Magazine Weddings, February 2018]

Hand sewn garments, quality focused, responsibly produced, rich in tradition, and created in Alabama. THIS was a fun project to shoot. If you ever find yourself near Florence, Alabama, stop by the Alabama Chanin factory, browse their organic garments and home goods, then sit down for a bite of lunch at The Factory Café. So much southern goodness created by Natalie Chanin, right there in my home state. Read the full story in the current issue of Birmingham Weddings MagazineHDP-BhamMag-AlabamaChanin-53_-WEB.jpg

100 Year Old Belle Meade Beauty and Garden Retreat [Published in Nashville Lifestyles Magazine, August 2017]

It’s not every day that you get to see a 100 year old home in this pristine condition. I entered the long curved driveway and was greeted with a sprawling plush green lawn and a canopy of hardwoods framing my glimpse of this beautiful Belle Meade home. I got out of my car to take a few shots from the driveway and could hear music playing from the gardens…a nice soundtrack to my work day. This lovely home in its beloved Nashville neighborhood is full of history. If only the walls could talk…

Brentwood, TN Home by Jonathan Savage Interior Design [Nashville Lifestyles At Home Magazine Cover Story, Spring Summer 2017]

Savage Interior Design, was recently named Best Design Firm by the Nashville Lifestyles’ Home Awards, and I was able to see Jonathan Savage’s incredible talent first hand, while shooting one of the Brentwood Homes he designed. The images of this lovely home are featured in the current issue and on the cover of Nashville Lifestyles At Home magazine.

It’s a real testament to Nashville and its friendly, welcoming and encouraging creative community, that I was given the opportunity to shoot my first cover for one of Music City’s magazines after living here only 8 months. I’ve always enjoyed shooting editorial work, especially for my home town. It’s such a great way to really get to know the city where you live work and play and the people and places that make it unique.

Be sure to pick up a copy of Nashville At Home on newsstands to read the story about this Brentwood beauty.

Beautiful Homewood Remodel by Twin Construction [Featured in Birmingham Home & Garden magazine May/June 2017]

It’s always a pleasure to shoot for my friends at Twin Construction in Birmingham, AL. This home was especially fun to photograph, since I know Rachael, the owner and love her personal style. Laurie Fulkerson, interior designer for Twin, did an exceptional job capturing and bringing Rachel and Dax’s style and personalities into the details of the home design. My favorite elements? The incredible black crocodile wallpaper in the study (slight obsession), the luxurious blue velvet sofas in the living room, the butlers pantry filled with natural light, the steel folding doors that open the dining room onto the screened porch for indoor/outdoor entertaining and finally the perfectly organized master bedroom closet with lighted shelving. There’s so much more…Pick up a copy of Birmingham Home & Garden to read the story behind this amazing Homewood (Edgewood) remodel.
