House & Garden - Creating Tablescapes

Do you ever open a magazine and just sigh over a picture?  We do, all the time… and when we do, we tend to look up the photographer to see what other pretty things he or she has shot.  We’ve come across some wonderful talent this way and we’ve just added Carolyn Barber’s site to our favorites bar.  Her portfolio is a delightful blend of fun and lovely things.  Whether she’s shooting fashion for a mail order catalogue…

Bombay Duck

or cakes for a bridal magazine…

Conde Nast Brides

and flowers for a reference book…

Dorling Kindersley

Carolyn truly captures the moment.  She also makes paint swatches look pretty…

Homes & Antiques

Even her Christmas cards are truly unique and beautiful.

Christmas '05

Do you have any photo ops planned for this weekend?

    What beautiful photos! That was a nice morning pick-me-up! That reminds me–I’ve got to bring my camera to the cottage down the shore and snap some “before” photos of our new floor and kitchen re-model!

    Wow, such creativity and originality! I so admire that! I need to capture a few more items for my shop while I have some great natural light to work with, although I am sure she could do it much better! 🙂

    What happy photos – love the energy Carolyn brings to her work. Great find. I’ll be taking a cooking/wine paring course at one of our favorite restaurants – I’ll have to try to remember to take a few shots in between sips and bites! Happy Weekend! XO
