I'm thrilled to be joining 23 other bloggers to give credit where credit is due: our photographers.
We are highlighting the people whose craft makes our work shine.
I'm greatful to Jana Bek for putting this talented group together!
If you've ever snapped a few photos with your phone of any space in your home, you realize that it never looks the same as it does in person. There's just something that happens between what I see and what happens through the lens that doesn't match up.
Thankfully I had the pleasure of meeting
Ashley Avila, of Ashley Avila Photography.
Over the years architectural photography has become a big part of my business as well. I love working with architects/builders/designers to showcase their creation and bring it to life visually. I understand your project becomes your life in a sense and it is my goal to show the world how you see it through your eyes. You created this masterpiece and now it is time to document it and give it a voice. Whether it is a new build, a remodel or a one room renovation; I will take the time to capture it in the way you wish the world to see it. By capturing images that highlight the details that set it apart from the rest of the block. ~Ashley Avila
Ashley works magic. Really.
We live in Michigan, where unless it's summer, the weather is gray most days. This makes it incredibly difficult to capture interior photos, because lighting is everything.
But Ashley Avila brings her lighting, sets it all up, and works hard to make it look bright instead of dreary. She went so far as to climb in the tub and stand on a chair to get the perfect shot.
This photo amazes me, because I was there and know that the sunlight was not hitting these cabinets perfectly. But this lighting? Ideal. Ashley nailed it.
I truly enjoy when I can collaborate with a talented woman like Ashley and see my work through her eyes. This photo below OF TOWELS, which shouldn't technically be a big deal, is one of my most pinned images. This is because of Ashley's creative eye.
Behind any successful designer is a wonderful photographer. Cheesy? Yes. But their photos of our work highlight the spaces at their best. Thank you, Ashley! Please take a moment to check out
