Our homes tend to reflect something about our personality. Have you ever taken a moment to look around your home and ask yourself “What does this say about me?” Not just the pictures on the walls but those little things that communicate our habits, our emotions, and bring us happiness on a daily basis. I have to say that it is a very unique perspective seeing a home through the eyes of a photographer. We are welcomed into someone’s sanctuary and in a way have the responsibility to tell a visual story about a person. If done correctly, the connection between the designer, the home, and the homeowner should be communicated in every shot. This is how I see photographing homes. The more I know about the homeowner, the better. It is for that reason that I always try to spend the time to get to know whose space I am photographing. As for this home, I could tell you several things about the homeowner from the beginning. First, she’s truly one of a kind and I mean that quite literally. She’s highly vibrant in every facet of her life, has a strong and well-rounded love for many types cultures, and the single most important thing to her is welcoming her friends and loved ones into her home to stay for the weekend. What a nice side of people to see, eh?
