Khaya; 4 Bedroom Leeward Canal Home Real Estate Opportunity

Khaya aeriel view of land parcel in proximity to the leeward channel and open ocean

After designing Fleur de Lys, Acajou, and Cotton House, all homes of traditional Caribbean architecture and interiors, our time to build contemporary Caribbean has finally come.  Millworks have always been a distinguishing factor in our builds, and Khaya will be no different.  Our primary business, TC Millwork, will be providing all of the woodworks; cabinetry, interior and exterior doors, and built-in furniture.  Millworks will primarily be built of African Mahogany, or Khaya, a genus of seven species of trees in the mahogany family and hence the name of the home.   Native stone will be another key feature within the interiors, balancing the sleek dark wood with brightness and texture. Read more about the unique location and benefits below.

Leeward WATERFRONT LIVING OPPORTUNITY

This contemporary pre-construction home lies on a west facing canal lot in the prestigious Leeward development on the northeast point of Providenciales.  Well reputed as one of the most affluent, safe, and attractive neighborhoods, the home is walking distance to the International School and Blue Haven Marina and amenities. Only a short distance drive to Leeward Highway, the location is well appointed for either full time residents or short term visitors.  With 101’ft of canal frontage to the west, 5 minute access to the Leeward channel to the North, and a flamingo frequented wetland to the south (pictured below), this parcel is a water lovers paradise.

Madame Figaro May 2018

Last March I scouted for a Madame Figaro photo shoot with photographer David Roemer. David and I met way back in 2011 on a ZImmerman Swim shoot.  David certainly knows how to capture sexy, sultry, and all the shimmer of the sand and sun.  Check out the beautiful images from the May 2018 issue.

JCrew Summer 2018 Photo Shoot

Last March Turks and Caicos Productions welcomed J.Crew  back to our shores to shoot summer campaigns for Swim and Playa. 

I had worked on J.Crew shoots before in 2010, 2011 and 2013 so it was great to see some familiar faces.  It was also great to see the brands new direction, embracing more body diversity.   

Models: Julia Van Os, Solange Van Doorn, Saffron Vadher

I love the images below from the Summer Blueprint story.

Typically when I work art department for these fashion shoots I assist the prop stylist.  This shoot was special in that I was able to do a little independent prop styling with a second BTS (Behind the Scenes) crew which focused on social media, email promotions such as the above and below by Bryan Derballa.

Lands End Photo Shoot

Last January, Turks and Caicos Productions welcomed Lands End to Turks and Caicos to shoot their Swim and Family Spring 2015 Campaign.  This was our first time working with Minnow11 Productions and the fabulous Lindsay McGill.  She’s a Hawaii based producer, (mama to TWO pro surfers, how cool is that!) so was great to work with someone who automatically gets what is is to produce on an island!

We were thrilled to cast some of our local kiddies in the campaign.  Those of you in the know, check out Adrien in the super cute striped rashguard above and below.  Little Lewis taking a stroll for Toddlers, too!

And one of our famous potcakes got in on the fun too!  Big thanks to Potcake Place who are always on board, tireless stage moms so these furry friends get to model.  These ads do help raise awareness about these special pups looking for forever homes.  If you have a big heart for homeless dogs please consider making a donation.

See that scrumptious pail-on-her-head cutie-patootie below far right?  That’s a dear friends darling, Selah!

It’s always fun to work on shoots that want boats.  This sailboat beauty in the background had just been restored by a neighbor friend, great way to relaunch her!

Sometimes we need more from a boat than to just float around looking pretty.  This shoot required a big enough boat to haul 30 cast and crew plus equipment quickly to an outer island where we had found the perfect location for the below spread.  See a little more of the behind the scenes images at Lands End On Location. Come back and see us again Lands End!

Kate’s Maternity Shoot with Marisa Findlay

Last February I had the opportunity to style for an island friends maternity/boudoir shoot.  This was my first time working professionally with another friend, photographer Marisa Findlay.   I have admired Marisa’s work for a long time, just look at this incredible Zambian wedding she shot recently!  She has a real way of capturing people looking natural, genuine.  It’s evident she loves photographing women, especially within boudoir, so I was looking forward to capturing our oh-so -pretty and oh-so-pregnant Kate!

I offered to use my house as our location, which feels a bit like cheating as a stylist because you already are familiar with all the attractive angles and available props:)  I knew it would work well for our intentions and hoped it would put Kate and Marisa at ease. For most women it is a big challenge to get nude or nearly nude with extra eyes on you.  Big kudos to Kate and her luscious bump for handling it with grace and style!  I am sure you and your hubby will cherish these images forever, thanks for asking me to be a part of capturing your expectant loveliness!
