recent styling & photography work: StCao Ceramics

handmade ceramics from Seattle. navy blue glaze earthenware with speckled white interior. black porcelain pinch bowls. artisan made colander and berry bowl.

One of my goals for this year was to take on more styling work. Recently I was lucky enough to partner with one of the artists in my new studio building and help her shoot photos for her freshly opened online shop, StCao Ceramics! Steph needed help not only with styling her gorgeous mugs, bowls, colanders, and plates, but also shooting the photos themselves. I often shoot the blog photos here, so I welcomed the challenge and had a blast working on this project. Here are a few of the photos:

In light of last week’s news (more on that here), I have some work to do in the house before Sean can officially move in. Our top priority is making sure there’s enough room for both of us to live in #mytinybungalow with all of our stuff until we’re able to do a full-on bedroom renovation (like adding a closet). The first step is a good old-fashioned closet clean-out, so I partnered with Glad to share my best tips and tricks for staying organized in a closet-less home!

Moving in together? Here’s my personal essay on this big step in our relationship, cohabitation! Get all of my tips and offer up some much-needed advice on

Over the past few months, the boyfriend and I have been discussing moving in together. Yup, COHABITATION. Big steps. I mean, we basically already live together because I have a comfortable house and he has a sailboat that isn’t the warmest during the winter months. We eat our meals together, our dogs are always together, we share laundry duties.
