Recently, I had the wonderful opportunity to not only photograph the interiors, but to sit down with Linda DiCarlo at her West Side Providence yoga studio to learn about Iyengar yoga, why she dedicated her life to the practice, and how exploring the method could impact a person's physical and mental state. I knew nothing of Iyengar previously, and very little about what drives a yogi. Linda's positive, centered attitude and balanced outlook not only provided great content for the multimedia piece we were producing for her marketing, but also motivated me to give her class a try!
As somebody who is often caught in the daily grind of work, walking the tight rope of balancing a hectic career and making time to care for a body injured by decades of contact sports, I eagerly and openly sought a way to bring my body and mind into alignment. A few weeks into the beginner classes at the Iyengar Yoga Source, I am learning the foundation, with great attention from the instructors. But more importantly, I am witnessing what is possible, if I continue. I'm not quite sure how best to describe it yet, the more advanced students describe it in the video below. It's a workout for your body: you sweat from engaging your muscles and stretching. Its a workout for your mind: you sweat from intensely focusing. But then something almost magical happens. You suddenly realize that you are so focused on what each part of your body is doing that everything else plaguing your mind has disappeared from reality. I have already seen and felt how this can reduce stress; I highly recommend you give it try and perhaps you'll find the same.

With this beautiful Spring weather [finally] arriving and bringing those bright sunshiny days, I would be lying if I said I didn't want to be outside. I love interior photography, but Father Winter surely overstayed his welcome and hung around for nearly half a year!!
So if photography keeps me indoors these days, it might as well be for a great reason. Doug Masters, of Masters Touch Design Build, provided such a reason.
Nestled in shade of forest in Norfolk, MA, this lovely space really caught my eye and held my attention. Sturdy wooden beams, a warm wooden living room, bright pops of color in the sitting room, wonderfully simple cabinetry and ample counter space in the kitchen and then a naturally lit spa room with a built in jacuzzi on the back of the house? There are so many different aspects to the design I don't know how they all work together, but when homeowners have such a fun vision and Masters Touch has 18 years of experience and the people to make it happen, the result is certainly photo worthy.
I sat down to chat with Doug after the shoot to learn more about his company. Check out this short video and view some of our favorite still images below. Then go outside and enjoy the weather!! But come back soon :)

Welcoming, cheerful, gracious and comedic: wonderful traits that immediately shine when you meet the owners of the Captain David Kelley House.
Tom Nortz and Rick Garceau are the proud caretakers of their "grand old lady", a historic home nestled in the small village of Centerville, in the town of Barnstable, Massachusetts. Tom and Rick purchased the home in 2008 and have dedicated their time to restoring the structure and providing a charming escape for Cape Cod vacationers.
Rick, having a background as a graphic designer, put together the B&B's website and maintains it by keeping information up to date, and continuously working on search engine optimization. As they have put so much effort into restoring the home over the years, they felt it was the right time to invest in professional interior photography, and allow potential guests to properly view what they can enjoy.
So, on this crisp, bright blue day at the start of Spring, I had the opportunity to capture the home, focusing on the interiors, and we capped it off by sitting down for a lovely conversation about the home, their work and what they do to make guests' stays one-of-a-kind. Fortunately for me, I will be returning in the Summer to capture their dining porch, exteriors and breakfast creations... because they both make famously delicious scones!
Design Imaging Studios creates naturally beautiful photographs of interiors and architecture, a great investment for a bed and breakfast, inn, or hotel looking to give their website a boost and attract more guests. Unfortunately, so many B&Bs, inns, and hotels feel they can't afford photography, the up-front cost is too high, or they can't see the long term value in it. We work with individuals and businesses in many different situations, and strive to do everything we can to put quality photography in your hands and on your website. Give us a call today, we'd be happy to talk about your photography needs, and different ways we can help.
