Last November I was lucky enough to style for a maternity and family session for friends of ours, Mary and James. We had been talking about a styled shoot since their son William was a wee lad but good thing we delayed for the perfect opportunity . . . the news that they were welcoming a new addition to their family!
Mary handles pregnancy beautifully, can’t you just see it in her smile?
I was beyond impressed when she turned up to Saturday morning dance class the week before her delivery and still managed to stretch and chase circles around her toddler like the rest of us! She received a standing ovation when she turned up the following week with her brand new baby and William in tow! Those two are very lucky lads to have such a dedicated momma!
Our congrats to the whole family! Thanks for letting me be a part of these special memory keepsakes!
Last September Tropical Imaging and I teamed up to shoot a brand new villa by the name of Samsara. Andy Mann and I work together often to profile architect Ron Shaw’s designs, each one incredible in their own right. This sprawling house is beautifully located on Babalua Beach, as the aerial image below demonstrates it virtually has it’s own private 650′ long beach!
I am a big fan of cedar shingled roofs and native stone, Samsara features both in great quantity. It gives the large luxury property a down to earth feel.
I loved the little planters incorporated into the outdoor showers, nice to have nature at your feet and still offer privacy within the surrounding garden.
This staircase was superb any which way you looked at it. We photographed it from three different angles, this was my favorite perspective.
Can you believe that collection of roofs! Remarkable!
The woven wood cabinetry was remarkable as well. I have to hand it to our TC Millwork competitor, Island Stairworks, who did a fantastic job on these CNC machined doors.
Another tidbit for the woodworking fans, this tables pedestal was part of the original house which the owner wanted to salvage and showcase.
If you find yourself lucky enough to enter these gates, you will appreciate this home and all of it’s many facets all the more seeing it in person.
Well done Ron Shaw, very grateful Andy and I were selected for this project! Always look forward to what you will create next. This round dining room with one of your signature ceilings made my most impressive list. Bravo!
We hope you had the experience of a lifetime Snwazna, thanks for being a shining ambassador of the Turks and Caicos Islands!
The foyer is a great introduction to the house, the rich wood floors meet your feet and contemporary, earthy furnishings greet just beyond the door. The kitchen is so spacious it begs to be the center of family and friends gathering place. Dining options abound, no wonder the countertop acts as a giant cutting board! The living room conceals it’s flat screen television as a reflective mirror.
I adored these distressed vintage looking letters, much more so knowing that they represent the first letters of each of the owners childrens names. Quite the monogram but the SEA that lies just beyond this house . . . quite spectacular. The location, the house, the pool, the beach makes for one completely stunning package so it’s no wonder a buyer fell in love with this house instantly, snatching it off the market in record time. Luckily I had the chance to style for one amazing wedding here on October 27th, I’ll share those images soon!
