Modern comfort, understated elegance, mountain views with high dessert terrain that help showcase its rugged beauty… these are all key phrases that help describe this home, designed by architect, Scott Gilbride. I photographed the interiors of this Shevlin Commons residence last fall (see previous post http://tinyurl.com/26jd6z6) and waited through the winter to get the crisp skis and lively landscaping for the exteriors. Below are a couple examples of the exteriors photographed for my client, Scott Gilbride Architecture taken at dawn and dusk to showcase the juxtaposition of the vibrant blue sky with the warmth of the home’s interiors to the natural colors of the wild flora. Lastly, you’ll notice the last image is of the master bath, with it’s mountainous views. This shot also needed to take place while the landscaping and skis were perfect, to really show the view out the bathroom window and give it the proper attention. Hope you enjoy!
Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing imagery for the design and branding firm, Studio Absolute. Russ and Cheryl McIntosh are not only incredible people and good friends of mine, but they are also so talented in their field. They provide high end design solutions and branding to drive the right clients to your business.
Studio Absolute recently moved to a new location in Tumalo, Oregon and needed imagery for their marketing collateral. I photographed the exterior and interior of their new space, as well as some imagery showing the details within their space. In addition, I wanted to do something fun to showcase them around their space, so we worked with some blurred motion within an interior image of their office.
After receiving their images, Cheryl had this to say… “As a branding and design firm, every touchpoint of our business is under the microscope for its ability to reach and inspire the target market. After trusting Paula to tell several of our clients’ stories through photography, we knew she would do a great job showcasing our new studio. She exceeded our expectations on timing and the quality of the work. We keep asking ourselves, ‘How did she do that?'” Cheryl continues…
“We have a good, quality camera and an eye for design, so we had taken a lot of our own shots of the studio. But we were blown away with Paula’s ability to make our space come alive with her creativity and lighting expertise. Just like hiring a designer–it’s well worth bringing on a trained professional verses a skilled hobbyist. We’re thrilled with the results.”
Below are a few examples of what came out of our time together yesterday. Enjoy!
I recently photographed high end interior and exterior doors for Classic Wood Accents here in Bend, Oregon. They are a top manufacturer for doors, stair casing, molding and hardware for custom homes. Here are a couple examples of some of their recent fine craftsmanship.
Hello all! I’m so excited to announce the launch of my new website! Check it out!
I’ve taken some time (behind-the-scenes), between photoshoots, client meetings, emails, taxes (whaaaat, what’s that?!) blogging, bookkeeping, being a mommy to an adorable 2-year old, moving houses, being a wife, killing it at Crossfit (haha.. that last part is laughable), keeping up on social media (what’s this stories thing I need to do?)… okay, clearly a lot… to find and curate images that speak to my style, breadth of work, expertise, and experience. I’ve narrowed the galleries down extensively, but hope it gives my viewer (you) a quick and beautiful walk through my work. My passion.
Being in Zambia now has given me a little bit of time to actually post some commercial photography work from before I left. It was such a blessing to be so busy right up until we left, but gave me no time to show anyone what I was actually up to. Here’s a quick look at a home I photographed in Pronghorn for Mount Bachelor Design Studio. The home boasts wide open spaces and French country interior design, with flares of antique hardware, country murals and one large industrial sized fan. Thank you MBDS! It was a pleasure working with you on this project!

As an architectural photographer, it’ll never get old to see my images published in an international architectural magazine like Trends Magazine. It just won’t. Not only are my wonderful clients ecstatic that this kitchen won the People’s Choice Award in the Trends Kitchen Design Award, but it’s a great compliment to their work and mine. Hats off to Kirsti Wolfe of Kirsti Wolfe Designs for designing such a beautiful kitchen and getting such wonderful recognition! More published work to come as we were recently published THREE TIMES in Trends!
