Today and tomorrow on the blog we wish you a happy Spring as we go back in time to revisit some of our favorite Easter Egg projects here at the studio. You can read about the Star Wars Easter Egg endeavor here. May the force be with you.
Elliott Kaufman is an incredible photographer and one of my favorite professors, who has been inspirational and so helpful in the building of my own career in architectural photography. I haven’t seen him in a few years, but have been keeping up with his work through his web site, Elliott Kaufman Photography, his children’s book, Alphabet Everywhere, and now, his exciting new venture into fashion, Elliott NYC.
Today, I was super excited to participate in my very first Kickstart venture by backing Elliott’s project. He’s got just a few more days to get to his $12,000 goal, and he’s pretty close! I’ve been thinking about his project since I first got the email because the product line, called Surfaces, is fun and gorgeous. The concept is simple, yet striking. Incredibly realistic and dynamic photographs of natural animal surfaces are transferred onto fabric and a line of totes and clutches are crafted right here in the garment district. Take a look. You know you want one for yourself and for at least one friend!
The most exciting thing about this project for me personally, as I embark upon new adventures in my life and my photography career, is that Elliott continues to inspire me with his creative endeavors. Along with a few of my other favorite working artists, Elliott gives me new heights to strive for in my creative endeavors. That, and I can never have enough unique and fabulous purses. Seriously.
Head over to Kickstarter, check out what Elliott has to say about his line, and maybe even help him get to his goal. Check out the great video he put together while you are over there.
Time is flying over here at the studio as I wrap things up at my job of 12 years at Beinfield Architecture. I’ve got just 8 more days until Sequined Asphault Studio Photography gets 100% of my career attention. And as I clean out one office that’s been a wonderful and challenging learning experience, I am putting together another room that’s sure to be even more challenging and hopefully, even more wonderful.
This is a peek at the awesome nursery mobile I found at the Etsy shop, Pink Cheeks Studios. Multi-cultural kids, dressed as bears, and going to a party. You can’t beat that. Nichol also has some great dolls and prints. I love the use of colors and textures throughout the collection.
I can’t wait to show you more of our new baby’s room as things progress, and of course, a full nursery tour in the not to distant future.
So I’ve decided I’m finally ready to discuss this on the internet, since there’s really no hiding it anymore. I’m waddling around with 8 weeks to go until my due date. We are having a baby! Apparently soon.
Today was another snow day here in New England, so it was perfect timing to prep a tiny, little knitting project. Don’t read into the yarn color choices because it’s all a surprise. Not so much a surprise that I don’t like pink or baby pastels, but you get the idea. I’d dress the kid in all grey and black if I could find that in the store.
I’ve been exhausted, which explains my fall/winter blog hiatus, but as I wrap things up at my day job, I’m finding a bit more energy. I cannot wait to share all the upcoming excitement and changes going on around these parts. We’ve also moved, so not only are we designing a nursery, we are trying to get the rest of the house and my studio in order before week 40. I’m keeping everything crossed here so there are no early deliveries.
We are definitely feeling really blessed. And I am thrilled and excited for the opportunity to create a completely new, fulfilling, creative life for myself over the coming years. Thank you for being part of the journey. xoxo
The awesome Budgie Striped Sweater Pattern is by Grumperina. The yarn you see is Black Worsted Merino Superwash from Plymouth and the scrumptious Dragonfly Fibers is Superwash Merino in Traveller. The variegated little purple cake is some Tiny Owl hexapuff-destined Koigu.
We are so glad to be back for this week’s edition of Which One? Wednesday. Both of these very different homes were photographed recently for Michael Greenberg & Associates.
Now, I’m definitely a modern home kind of girl. No question about it. And I love this first interior on the left. This home, as I understand, was designed in part as a show piece for a spirited art collection, and it is tremendously successful as such. It also brings the landscape in from the outside, which is one of my weaknesses for the modern aesthetic.
Rustic, to me, hearkens thoughts of Vermont and Maine and skiing (which I do not do at all) and snowboarding (which I do not do well). So maybe I’m most drawn to the space on the right because it is still winter here in New England. And there are so many good books around. I swoon over libraries as you may know. Right now, I just want some morning light, a good book, and to be curled up on that couch until spring.
Which space would you like to inhabit if just for a moment?
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.
