My very first project in the interior design photography world was a mid-century modern house that belongs to my now friend, Diana from 204 Park. Feeling the pull to photograph beautiful spaces on a more regular basis, I reached out to her on Instagram and a few months later we had coordinated our very first shoot together.
Ready to put my own spin on interior photography, I shied away from using any of the homes lighting and stuck with all natural window light. I wanted the images to look like they would fit into my favourite magazine, Style at Home! I was prepared as I could be and after my first interior shoot, I was head over heels for interiors.
If you know me, you know I’m in love with interior design. I spend most of my money at Homesense and Wayfair and have a very difficult time leaving without a few cute things to add to our home. Thankfully my boyfriend appreciates a beautiful home as much as I do and loves all white everything too.
I remember walking into Diana’s mid-century modern house and thinking how stunning it was! I’m obsessed with white kitchens and bam, she had the perfect one with a big island. I loved that her space, as bright and white as it was, still felt incredibly cozy and welcoming. Bold just like her personality, she picked black (yep, you read that right!) walls for her dining room. Overall the open floor plan fits together so perfectly but what do you expect when she’s an interior designer?!
As our shoot progressed, Diana told me that she had hoped we could get her space featured on Apartment Therapy with my photos. For my very first interior design shoot, I was already nervous and as you can imagine even more when she mentioned this. Lo and behold it wasn’t a few months later and Diana emailed me with the news – we had been featured! I was so blown away and knew that this path as an interior photographer was definitely a welcome addition.
