Being distracted by projects and traveling and other such nonsense like losing my camera battery charger, I’ve generally been MIA from the interwebs for much longer than I’d expected as well as so clutter-minded that this post has somehow floated around forgotten in draft limbo for an unreasonably long while.

How long, you ask? One month? Nope. Many multiple months? Yup.


Anyway, many many moons ago, I pulled together my props and helped style up some interiors Laure was shooting for a campaign launching the new BIG Jambox by Jawbone. Like the original smaller scale Jambox wireless speaker, this bigger version is just as portable and designed by Yves Behar and also makes the sounds go BOOM. This photo shoot was actually my first experience with any sort of Jambox and I have to admit that it sounded pretty impressive just streaming music from our phones while we worked. Oh, and that wireless thing is so very nice seeing that I despise nothing more in the world than seeing wire clutter. Plus it recharges up like any other mobile thing.

I totally want one, dammit.

Ok, get it together lady.

BAM. Some of my favorite photos from the shoot:

Mmmmmmmm. Yum.

Of course all these gorgeous photos were shot by my favorite photographer Laure Joliet, who is as always fantastic to work with  as is the ever awesome Heather. We three shot the campaign really quickly by hitting up 3 locations a day for 4 days in a row and pulled together a large stylish collection of images featuring the BIG Jambox – all of which can be seen here on pinterest.

We did it! Yeah!

Thanks again to Tracy, Gregory, Simon, Laura, Elsie, Abby, Erin and Jerome for sharing all of your beautiful homes and being so generously accommodating to us and thank you forever Laure and Heather for being the best.

Things have been quiet around the house due to some traveling and a few projects I’ve been focused on. Funny how preoccupation combined with 106 degree temperatures will suck all the fun and focus out of home improvement.


Laure and I recently headed out to Crested Butte to photograph Keith and Alissa’s wedding. While secluded in the mountains, I shot more photos, ate more ice cream and hollered at more cows than should be reasonably allowed. So yup, great mountain wedding times were had all around.

Really though, the biggest focus-sucking development has been the unexpected addition of this little fur puff of a dog to the house.

To clarify.

We weren’t looking for another dog. We didn’t want another dog. We were happy with our current small dog quota…and then this little feather footed vagabond of a pup needed help and a home and deployed her manipulative powers of adorableness to squeeze into my goddamn heart.

Details wise.

She is seven months old and weighs a whopping 3 pounds. She has no name, zero house training, zero vet care and is extremely shy. Oh, and she is in heat. Big time.

Things have been interesting.

So, yes, we are all adjusting to a new routine in which she is a tiny clueless menace, Iggy is either ambivalent or terrified of her and Bowie is desperately obsessed. Mostly though, she’s a hilarious puff of a weirdo who really needs a name already.

Laure and I are excited to reveal that our first ever PHOTO | CAMP will be held this upcoming Saturday, March 24th, at the ever so shiny Ban.Do studio. It’s like we’re girls! Fancy sparkly girls or something!

Above are a few shots Laure snapped at Ban.Do, which happily has turned out to be the perfect space for this first workshop. Oh, and besides the tons of photo tips and step by step editing guides, we’re also going to have some sweet goodies from blurb books and At Your Leisure as well as an extra special treat waiting for campers. No big deal, but I’ve been looking over the great photos participants have already sent in and might be feeling incredibly impatient to meet everyone and start spilling all our go-to editing super duper top secret sweet-ass tricks.

There’s still a couple spots left, so if you would like to step up your photo-game and take better photos, please feel free to check out workshop details here or register over here.
