If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you may have seen my announcement that I was featured in Seattle Met’s February 2018 issue!!!
I was approached in December to be interviewed by Seattle Met about how I work at home. After my interview, the Art Director at Seattle Met asked me when I’d like to have the photographer come, or if I’d like to provide my own photos. I jumped at the chance to have my photography in print, so YES.
I’m super excited about this feature for my (still unnamed) marketing business where I provide Art Direction, Design, Photography, but also because it was just so damn fun to have a project like this to work on.
I spent a few days between Christmas and New Years arranging and rearranging until I got everything just right. I’d like to thank my husband for being my photography assistant and the muscle, and our dog Maximus for being the cutest pug model there ever was (wait til you see how he posed!!!!).
Okay, onward to the feature…
Home Office Tour
+ More on working from home…
I’ve been working from home full time for about a year. When I started WFH, I’d sit on the couch, at the kitchen table, or using the countertop as a standing desk. After a few months of moving my laptop from place to place around my 950 sq. ft. house, I realized I needed a dedicated space to work, shoot photos, and to get inspired. I also wanted a place to display my handbags because that’s what inspires me to make money and what my work is actually about. Luckily, I have a spare guest room that I wasn’t using for guests.
When I started designing my space, I knew I wanted it to be bright, open and airy with places to display beauty products, jewelry, and of course, handbags.
I’ve moved a few things around since I shot this, but overall I really love how inspiring my space turned out. I’m able to work in a space that also serves as my dressing room and IRL inspiration board.
