Shooting for Emily Henderson Designs

The past few months I've been shooting with a new client-- designer, blogger, HGTV star, Emily Henderson.  I've photographed several things for her including a staff outing to the downtown LA fabric district for NatureBox, home holiday decor, DIY projects, and a Lo and Sons travel bag piece.  

Emily and her team Ginny and Brady are just as awesome to work with as you'd expect.  I have so much respect for them putting out almost daily blog posts that are super involved and intricate. I'm lucky if I manage to get out a post a month!  Here is some work I've shot for them over the past few months.  To see more click on the links above.  

It's been awesome  I get to shoot a variety of things for the team including more editorial stuff, interiors, product, DIY and design, and portraiture.  A nice opportunity to test my skills and try new things.  

Christmas in California

The Avila Valley Barn is one of the most awesome places I know.  It's kind of like an old-timey East Coast farm stand that has the benefit of being in California, where they can grow produce and flowers year-round.  There is a huge variety of animals from dozens of chickens running around to alpacas, and emu.  The models especially bonded with the goats, who were eating dried leaves right out of their hands.

Both of the models were fantastic.  It was my first time working with Kylee and Eric, but they dove right in and got into the spirit of the shoot.  Only in California can you enjoy ice cream in the wintertime!
