Happy Friday. Must be time for your weekly dose of Yorkies in the Wild (I know it’s been a while). For this shoot Chewie was sandwiched between my camera and a picture of outside. That’s how we like to do the outdoors in these parts. Climate controlled and without insects.
We are super excited to release these photos today in our Etsy shop! Head on over and check them out. Favorite them, buy them, pin them, stare at them, etc. The holidays are quickly approaching, so keep in mind your fellow dog lovers out there. Over the next several weeks we will be releasing new Yorkies in the Wild prints each Friday.
Model | Chewbacca the Yorkie, age 6, 4.5 pounds
Photo Shoot Soundtrack | Rolling in the Deep, Adele

There are a few beautiful shoots from the end of my pregnancy that never made it on the blog. This clean, inviting bedroom is from a timeless, New England home I’ll share with you soon.
Today I’d like to talk about styling. Most often I work with the home owner’s belongings to style a shoot. Furniture and decorative pieces may be moved around the home. Sometimes we bring in food or plants or accessories. But in this particular home, we really only needed to move items for the sake of the camera angle. I cannot wait for you to see the rest of the home. It’s so relaxing and inviting with interesting pieces to look at everywhere.
Sometimes I end up with more than one final shot, intending to decide on subtle styling differences during the editing process. For example, above. So if you could please tell me, orchid or no, I’ll pull together the full set to share with you next week. Maybe I’ll even ‘iron’ the bedspread for you… You’re going to love it so much, you’ll be wishing for a Thanksgiving invitation to this cozy home.
So, which one?
If you’re new here, (or you just don’t remember because it’s been so long), on Wednesdays I open up the comments for you to tell me which view from a recent photo shoot you prefer. And why. I love hearing what you have to say. You can peruse past Which One? features here.
I’m lying. This is totally to help me through the coming week. I just thought a peek into this glamorous dining room, designed by Yvonne Ferris Interiors, would be good for us all. Good design relaxes me.
I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed with work and overly ambitious goals this week, but I have some great images to share and I’m excited to be here with you on the blog. This is an excellent venue to help me stay true to my vision, combining the gritty with the glamorous, which is the inspiration behind my architectural photography business name, Sequined Asphault Studio.
Yvonne is definitely a designer who often works from that inspiration as well, so I’m looking to images I’ve made for her, to help motivate me and keep me on track this week.
What’s on your plate this week?
(If you are so inclined, you can read more about how I chose the name, Sequined Asphault Studio, here at my Etsy shop.)
