Photos Published in This Old House Magazine

Once again, too much time has passed since my last post, apologies, time slips away so easily.  Last summer my photos appeared in This Old House Magazine in the July 2013 issue.  I had traveled to Duluth, Minnesota to take photos of a kitchen that had won an award for the annual reader created Do It Yourself makeover issue.  The young family who remodeled their kitchen did a great job creating a new space from the old kitchen.  Have a look.  Photo styling by Shannon Gale.

    Very nice work, Andrea, as usual. I’m curious how extensive the “photo styling” was. Room stripped and completely staged versus a few touches added??

    Generally even when you use the homeowners things, which you usually do, you pretty much make the room empty of small items first and then start adding items that help the space look beautiful. This Old House Magazine hired the stylist, Shannon Gale and she brought a car load of props but of course, didn’t use them all. She mainly brought items that add to the style of what the homeowner already has. When deciding whether or not a prop looks good, you ask yourself if it adds anything to the space or not. I would guess about a third to half of the props were brought in.
