Christine and Gabe Bridger of Company + Cottage (www.companyandcottage.com) breathed new life and purpose into this 1907 barn on the shores of Lake Michigan, transforming it into a comfy, rustic getaway that preserved old materials while creating a modern, liveable space! The photos I took of her finished project are in the current issue of American Farmhouse Style magazine!

Michele Bosak is Curator of Exhibitions at Kendall College of Art and Design. I photographed Michele in her tastefully appointed Eastown home office—along with her cute doggy, Petey—for the “Look + Feel” section in the September issue of Grand Rapids Magazine! Like with many other professionals across the country (and world), this year’s pandemic shutdown has sprung up many dedicated home office spaces to accommodate social distancing guidelines. Instead of camping out with a laptop on the couch or at the dining room table, may as well put something together that’s a little more permanent, because who knows how long this will last!

I photographed the cover and main feature for the May 2020 “Top Docs” issue of Grand Rapids Magazine! As with the “Arts Preview” cover story I shot for the magazine last September, this project was challenging yet very rewarding. Directing people (not to mention busy, in-demand doctors!), working with studio lighting, and scheduling all the shoots wasn’t a stroll in the park, but as always, I’m glad I took on the challenge.

Along with the Leelanau-based Brengman Brothers wine that they offer, Forty Pearl recently added a full food menu—a perfect place to visit once these COVID-19 lockdown days are over!
