Three Sixty Five: Home for the (Slightly Belated) Holidays.

2011.01.07: Ora’s House.

Okay, so I am a little behind on posting images for my Three Sixty Five. I’ve been busy working on my professional portfolio website, shelbymariephotography.com and this set of images that I shot at mom’s house over the weekend. Partially intended for documentation and partially for next year’s Christmas cards, I am really, really happy with the results of my labors. I was thinking both of “What would these look like in a magazine?” and “How do these fit with my Interior Lives project?”

I had my 27th birthday dinner at the fabulous and brilliant Bolete Restaurant back in early September. The food was outstanding, appropriate for the season and featuring local produce, meats and foraged mushrooms, a new personal favorite of mine. I sipped my plum sidecar over a fabulous meal of fresh halibut and crisp greens. Not only was the food incredible, I was taken by the decor and overall feel of the interior; light and airy without being sterile, touched with green and ochre. I went back to photograph last week during the day and was still enchanted by the old inn’s interior, filled with late afternoon sunlight

Mom’s House.

These shots are from April, hence all of the eggs and rabbits around the house. I forgot that I had taken them and I decided to revisit. These were an attempt to continue on my thoughts on interior lives. My mom’s house, immaculately decorated according to the seasons and always sparkling clean, feels like walking into a magazine spread. Her tireless dedication to her house is impressive and admirable. I see the way I construct my space in the way she constructs hers.
