Photographer Crush: Ditte Isager

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

My friend Ali introduced me to photographer Ditte Isager recently and to my surprise I recognized a lot of her work from my countless Martha Stewart magazines. Some of her most recent work can be seen in the Poppy Love article in the May Issue of Living.

The saturated tones and playful sense of scale is stunning and so ethereal. I adore Ditte’s work and you should definitely check out her extensive portfolio if you get a chance. Inspiration galore!

A Martha Halloween

Monday, September 27th, 2010

It must be all the fall projects I’m working on lately but I’ve definitely got the Halloween spirit already. I’m especially excited about the new Martha Stewart Halloween line.

I’ve always had a hard time with the holiday only because all the decorations fealt so over-the-top and tacky. Martha has managed to bring a bit of style and good design into her party goods and I completely appreciate that. Leave it to Martha to even class up even Halloween!
