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…

Newly Goods [Nashville Lifestyles Magazine, February 2017]

Newly, is a Nashville based eCommerce venture created by five local entrepreneurs. Their home products are 100% recycled with clean and modern styling. I photographed the owners and some of their products for an article in Nashville Lifestyles Magazine‘s February 2017 issue. I’m thrilled to be shooting for my new hometown magazine after living here for only 6 months and grateful for the opportunity to get to know Nashville even better through my lens.

You can read more about Newly’s mission in the article here.HDP-NL-Newly-12_-WEB.jpgHDP-NL-Newly-8.jpgHDP-NL-Newly-18_-WEB.jpgHDP-NL-Newly-21_-WEB.jpgHDP-NL-Newly-26_-WEB.jpgHDP-NL-Newly-28_-WEB.jpgHDP-NL-Newly-1.jpg

Christopher Architects Lake Martin Home [Published, Birmingham Magazine March 2016]

A month ago I had the pleasure of photographing a beautiful Lake Martin home designed by Christopher Architects. Chris was my neighbor growing up from kids to college, so it was fun to collaborate with him on this editorial project. And, I always love any excuse to go to Lake Martin and grab lunch at Catherine’s Market. Be sure to pick up the March issue of Birmingham Magazine and read the article about this amazing lake home design.

Vestavia Home Sparkles and Shines for the Holidays [Published Birmingham Magazine, December 2015]

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Built by Twin Construction, interior design by Lisa Flake of Caldwell Flake Interiors, and Christmas decor by Danielle Yancey and her partner Kim Chiselko, this home, published in the current issue of Birmingham Magazine, is eye candy. I loved every single thing about it. Lisa’s design is impeccable and she always adds an element of fun and the unexpected in every home she designs. And, we share a love affair with the color turquoise, so I always enjoy seeing how she sprinkles it in the homes she designs. Danielle and her partner, Kim outdid themselves with the most amazing Christmas decor. Every detail was considered and you will certainly be inspired for your own home decorating this holiday season.

The Clegg Farm (Published in Birmingham Magazine, June 2015)

Days like this one, when my job consists of spending a beautiful May morning riding around on a Polaris at a private farm shooting for Birmingham Magazine…well, I just want to pinch myself. What could be better than being outside, meeting new people and getting the grand tour of a well designed farmhouse with sprawling views of the lake and hunting land? Not much.

The Clegg’s home was designed by the talented team at Adams-Gerndt with interiors by Defining Home. And it’s no surprise that I loved the deep teal chairs in the living room. Yeah, I wanted to take those home.

Come along with me and take a tour of this refined rustic and peaceful retreat…

Photo published by Jones Soda Co.

I’m a little giddy! I’ve always loved that Jones Soda Co. features photos of real people doing fun things…real life. So, about a year ago I entered a photo of my own kids water sliding in the front yard. It’s one of my very favorite images. Just a month ago I received a phone call and an email from Jones saying they had chosen my photo to use for a project.

Jones Soda Co. promotes photos on its website for potential use on “rare” bottles that see regular distribution. According to a Jones Soda customer service representatives, “hundreds of thousands photos get submitted each year and only 1 percent of photos actually make it to a label.” The company also states that up to three different images per “label run” may appear on individual flavors, and “the placement of the labels is very, very random.” Jones Soda is distributed nationally and internationally and the labels can go on anywhere of 1,000 to 10,000 bottles of the same flavor. You never know where your label will turn up.

So, THE HUNT IS ON to find the bottles with my kids’ photo on them! I’m so curious which flavor (I hope it’s the turquoise one)! The first person to find the bottles with my kids picture and brings one to me gets a free mini session!

In addition to the Jones Soda photo contest, you can also submit your photos for your own custom labels and order cases of Jones Soda. What a great idea for wedding receptions and summer parties!!

 

Loft Living with Panoramic Views of Birmingham Landmarks

For this month’s issue of Birmingham magazine, I shot a loft dwelling on 2nd Ave North. While there, we went up on the rooftop terrace and I was amazed at the panoramic view of so many Birmingham landmarks. Here’s some of the images I grabbed from my perch overlooking the Magic City and a few from inside the loft. Be sure to check out the Cool Spaces + Downtown Places event which will take place on this Saturday, May 10th starting at 1:00 PM. Here’s two links for more information…

Published, Birmingham Magazine Feb 2014 Dwellings

Last month I photographed one of the oldest still-standing houses in Mountain Brook, Alabama for Birmingham Magazine. Thought to be one of the original farmhouses in what was the Watkins Dairy neighborhood, this house had roots in Mountain Brook before it was even incorporated. The Whatley’s beautiful home was a design collaboration by the owner of the home, Hoodie Whatley, and Birmingham based Mary Ruth Caldwell of Caldwell Flake Interiors, who also happens to be Hoodie’s mother.

It’s always a privilege to shoot editorial work with the fantastic team at Birmingham Magazine, and I love to see designers’ talents and get ideas for my own home when I shoot interiors. And, any home with turquoise accents is definitely one I’m going to love. You can see the full article here.

Published in B-Metro Magazine’s November 2013 Issue

In addition to a feature story in the November issue of Birmingham Magazine, I just found out today that one of my images was chosen as the “One Shot, City Through The Lens” image in the November issue of B-Metro Magazine. I’m thrilled and incredibly grateful to have published work in my hometown’s two major magazines in the same month. Somebody pinch me! But, much more important than this photo being published, is the story behind it. Children’s of Alabama is a very special place and does amazing things for sick kids in Alabama and beyond. I’d like to say thank you to the people who believe in my work and allow me to capture theirs. It’s really a dream come true. I love Birmingham.
