Style Story... of the Williams family

Style Story… of the Williams family

I’m getting to the age now (listen to me sounding all grown-up) when friends of my family who were having babies when I was in middle school are now… in middle school!! It’s a strange thing to watch happen from a distance. I met these young’ins as pink, wrinkly newborns before the idea of driving...
Style Story... of Joslyn Taylor - Part 2

Style Story… of Joslyn Taylor – Part 2

Welcome to Part 2 of Joslyn’s lovely Style Story! Not much has changed around here. I’m still struggling with “edit/post it disagreement” (a phrase I just coined this very moment). Let me explain… edit/post it disagreement |ˈedit pōst it ˌdisəˈgrēmənt| phrase, the overwhelming and often stress inducing disagreement within self when faced with the task of making tough decisions regarding...
Style Story... of Joslyn Taylor - Part 1

Style Story… of Joslyn Taylor – Part 1

You’ll have to forgive my simpleton mutterings for today’s Style Story. I’m feeling a little less than competent when faced with the task of editing my words and photos from Joslyn Taylor‘s home. Truly, there’s so much to love!! My new friend (it makes me immensely happy to call her that), Joslyn, has curated her...
Being a Creative Freelancer

Being a Creative Freelancer

During my visit with Stephanie a few weeks ago for her Style Story feature, we also sat down to discuss a topic that’s especially relevant to me and my current work situation but one that I’m sure anyone in a creative field could relate to… being a creative freelancer (particularly outside of the major cities...
Style Story... of Stephanie Casey

Style Story… of Stephanie Casey

Stephanie Casey has a smile that would brighten any room but it’s not necessarily because of  her flawless complexion, salsa red lips, or pearly white teeth as you would think. No, it’s deeper than that. Thegenuine joy of spirit that she obviously applies to all areas of her life flows easily from the inside out....
Simple Does It... The Style Story of Emily Landham

Simple Does It… The Style Story of Emily Landham

Simplicity – the kind that is easy, beautiful, comfortable, and also still inviting – is so difficult to achieve! At least, when the idea of parting with your precious, “never-can-be-replaced-again” belongings is so hard to arrive at. Sure, I’ve touted the merits of regular Spring and Fall cleaning often enough and waved the flag of...
A Closer Look... with Sam Sano

A Closer Look… with Sam Sano

Well, friends… I’m almost back from my Tennessee travels and just in time to share a very special blog post. Sam Reitmayer Sano is a graphic designer in Dallas, TX and a person to whom I owe much thanks. When I first moved to Dallas and was in search of work and industry acquaintances, Sam...
Nooks and Crannies

Nooks and Crannies

…we so often forget them in favor of the more important spaces in our homes with grander potential. But they have as much potential for unexpected charm and character as anything else! Take this master bath from Denise’s home, for example. It would have been easy to leave it untouched and unembellished. Why decorate a...
Style Story... Denise & Scott McGaha

Style Story… Denise & Scott McGaha

Denise McGaha is more comfortable in creative “chaos” than organized placidity. She prefers the bustling activity of a multi-tasker over the perfectly manageable schedule of a “nine to five-er”. In fact, too much ease makes her nervous. When I met Denise, who I’ve assisted on several design projects over the past 10 months, for our...
More from Susan

More from Susan

I was truly blown away by the pure number of beautiful moments in Susan’s Dallas home. Every where I turned, I stumbled upon another shot that couldn’t be missed! This makes for the worst kind of editing process. It becomes painful to weed away the out-takes, which is why I’m cheating today and sharing an...
Style Story... Susan Baten

Style Story… Susan Baten

Susan Baten is a woman of more actions than words. For that reason, rather than sharing the usual audio interview, today the photos will speak for themselves. To fully appreciate Susan and her home, you have to understand her line of work. She flips and decorates houses… really nice houses!! Think the grandchildren of Mark...
Every Angle

Every Angle

Have you ever considered the angles of your home? Probably not… I mean, why would you unless you were photographing it, right? For the past five homes that I’ve photographed for my Style Story series (yes, it’s five already!), I’ve learned to carefully consider the importance of every angle in the home. Not only does...
Modern Elegance

Modern Elegance

A large portion of what makes the Craine home so elegant and attractive are the iconic furniture pieces that Cindy and Patrick chose for their home. This red Eames chair not only molds to the body perfectly but the lines of it’s silhouette are wonderfully simple and pleasing as well. The beauty is in the...
Style Story... Patrick & Cindy Craine

Style Story… Patrick & Cindy Craine

Patrick and Cindy are my neighbors but I had never met them until the day of this shoot. For months, I drove by their unexpectedly modern house amidst our neighborhood of eclectic – and most definitely more traditional – homes and wondered about the unique family and furnishings that must live inside. Well, I finally...
Style Story... Ada Smith

Style Story… Ada Smith

Simply put, today’s post is very special to me. My grandmother, Ada Smith, mother of my mother Jessee and known by her grandchildren as “Day-Day”, has been a precious and profound role model for me all my life! She is gracious, kind, elegant, and humble. When I asked her if I could photograph her apartment, a place in...

Style Story… Leslie Pritchard

Leslie Pritchard doesn’t need much introduction. If you live in Dallas and love design, chances are you’ve heard of her vintage furniture heaven known as Again & Again. If not, catch up on Leslie and her day job in yesterday’s post HERE. Now, onto Leslie’s Style Story… her stunning duplex was designed by rising Dallas...

Style Story… Erin Davis & Ben Smithson

I’ve been waiting to share today’s post for what seems like forever!! Several months ago… no, perhaps even more than that, I had this inspiration to take my camera to the “streets” of creative and unique personal homes. It’s no secret that Todd Selby is a significant influencer of mine and fashion street style has...
