Better Homes and Gardens!

I'm so excited to finally post the tearsheets from this story I did for Better Homes and Gardens of interior designer Kelly Moseley and her family's gorgeous, remodeled 1930s cottage. These images are really making me miss summer as I sit about 2 inches from my space heater, dreading going out in the 37 degree weather! Bring back the BBQs!

Take Monday Off...And Come to Austin!

Check out this fun travel piece I did for the Wall Street Journal. It's so exciting to see Austin getting so much great press, but at the same time, I really want it to stay a secret so it never changes! This shoot was really tough - I had to go to a bunch of my favorite places, eat at some of my favorite restaurants, and explore new areas that I hadn't been to before; can you sense my sarcasm yet? :)

Elizabeth Stanley's Home!

I'm really excited to finally share these super fun photos of Elizabeth Stanley's home, one of my favorite interior designers here in Austin. Upon walking through the front door of her home, I immediately fell in love. It had been a while since I had seen a house as breathtaking as hers. Not only was it luxurious and gorgeous, but the best part was the playful, unexpected details scattered throughout the house - a zebra head smoking a cigarette, a bedroom fireplace filled with pennies instead of stones, the fun Ingo Maurer chandelier in the stairwell, even a clever (and naughty!) neon sign over the master bedroom's bed. To top it off, the house was designed by the amazingly talented Ryan Street, who also did Lance Armstrong's Austin home.

Reef and Chef Bryan Caswell for Cooking Light

Wow, it's been a while since since I've done a post. It's been an exciting and crazy summer so far and I have lots of new work to post in the coming days. To start, here's a few of my favorite images from a shoot that I did for Cooking Light magazine featuring Chef Bryan Caswell, owner of Reef in Houston. Reef was recently voted the #1 best seafood restaurant in the country by Bon Appetit and man, did it live up to the hype.

Shawn Colvin's House!

In case you haven't picked up your copy of the winter issue of Austin Monthly Home, there are still a few days left before the spring issue comes out! Yay spring! For the current issue, I shot the beautiful and bold home of singer-songwriter Shawn Colvin! She's been one of my favorite artists since I was in high school, so shooting her and her house was pretty unreal; I had to pinch myself a couple of times!

Richard Linklater's Bunkhouse for Tribeza

I am so excited about this post! Check out the cover and feature I did for Tribeza magazine of director Richard Linklater's bunkhouse. The property, designed by architect Henry Panton sits in the middle of the woods, just outside of Austin. Stylist Adam Fortner and I had a blast shooting here all day and into the night. It's shoots like this that remind me why I love my job.

Gourdough's in American Way

Check out my shot of Gourdough's "Baby Rattler" doughnut in American Airlines' in-flight magazine, American Way. If you haven't been to Gourdough's, your life is incomplete. It is my favorite food trailer in Austin and is unbelievable. The "Baby Rattler", below, is a gigantic doughnut, covered in fudge icing and Oreos, topped off with a gummy snake slithering across it. Enough said.

A Sneak Peak at "Designing and Printing Fabric"

Over the past few months, I have had the joy of working with UK book publisher RotoVision and textile designer Laurie Wisbrun of Scarlet Fig on her new book The Complete Guide to Designing and Printing Fabric. If you aren't familiar with Laurie's work, you must check it out now! Her fabrics are off-the-charts adorable and creative and we had a blast photographing them, and others, for the book. RotoVision is publishing the European edition and Chronicle Books (one of my favorite publishers!) is publishing the US edition. The other day Laurie tipped me off to a very sweet blog post from RotoVision about the book. Check it out, along with more images from the book, here.

A big thank you to my amazing stylist Robin Finlay for styling the entire book. I couldn't have done it without you!
