While I was in Paris I got contacted by West Elm to shoot their brand new LA store. I’ve used West Elm so much in my own home and on the tv show and was super excited to be asked to document the Thomas O’Brien designed space (the old blueprint on beverly blvd). I shot it a couple of weeks ago (with some help from morgan and ali) and wanted to share some of my favorite shots.
The space is HUGE and gorgeous and has beautiful light that made anything glass just light up. They also have that amazing living wall, exposed beams, industrial elements and two levels! I’ve already bought half my xmas presents here.
Big thanks to Kendall, Ed and Aaron from West Elm for all the support!
Took a break over thanksgiving weekend and slowed down. Ended up splurging on these incredible flowers from cookbook and trying them on all over the house. Then I tested out my old polaroid (buy film here). Turns out this one doesn’t work. But I still like the results. More like paintings than pictures.
In a good way this trip has not at all been what I expected. This is a shot from the 24 hours I spent in Berlin (my new favorite place) on friday/saturday for the new york times. It was in a cemetery not far from where I was shooting.
Also do yourself a favor and listen to some Lykke Li. She was my favorite at Pitchfork Paris. Lots to do before I leave for LA on thursday.
Took a quick detour after a very long sunday lunch with the extended family (wine! for everyone! champagne aussi? pourquoi pas!) into the musée de la chasse et de la nature in the marais. It was just stunning. Outside was bright and sunny, the streets teeming with people out for a stroll. Inside it was dark and quiet, just you and the beasts.
Reminded me that I want to go to Deyrolle before I leave.
Jonathan and I went to visit our friend (and hero) Tracy and her new house earlier this week. I’ve loved her style ever since I shot her last house for At Your Leisure last year. She is the definition of effortlessly chic. Ask anyone that knows Tracy and they’ll admit to having a secret crush on her.
She met us in her hillside place and gave us the full tour of the airy, seventies retreat complete with flagstone fireplace, decorative concrete tile and wall to wall carpet. Only Tracy could make it work. She served us quiche and arugula salad, Simba lounged next to us, and we soaked it all up until it was time to go home. It’s the kind of thing that makes me nostalgic for California while I’m sitting right there.
I bought a new lens over the weekend that goes down to 1.4 (this one). Look at all that beautiful out of focus madness on my maiden hair fern! I got it just in time to shoot a bunch of ‘beauty shots of silly stuff’ for the new york times yesterday. It’ll be out soon and I’ll share.
I also shot a lot of pictures of hazel. I will spare you and just share one of them. This is her on the fridge.
Getting ready for my trip to Paris and loved all the responses about what you’d like to see. I will be committed to documenting (or at least reporting) on the art of doing nothing, my secret spots in Paris and carousels (ahem, summer).
I shot Wade and his garden on the hottest day of the summer. I decided, since it was all about his garden and los angeles and it was for the New York Times, that I wanted to shoot at sunset with warm golden light. I wanted to make east coasters jealous, just a little bit. And even though I showed up at 3 or 4 o clock, it was still somewhere around 95 degrees and humid. So I love the images, but it was not an easy shoot because of the heat.
Wade was great to work with. He told me all about his garden while I shot. We talked about LA and plants and bees and adventures. It was great and easy going. Loved reading the article because he’s a really fascinating person who’s led an interesting life. He was shy about having his picture taken so we kept it really brief — it was funny to see his portrait was the hero image for the article (see it here).
That’s been a big part of my learning curve working with different editors all the time. Sometimes I love what they choose for the final images and sometimes I’m really disappointed. Overall, I have been so so happy with what the Times has chosen. They also do a little extra retouching of the photos–crunch the blacks and add some saturation, and I like it.
These are some of the images that didn’t make it in that I liked–the crazy Aloe Forest, the view driving up to the house in los feliz at sunset, the peek into the chartreuse side yard from the bathroom. See the whole NYT slideshow here.
It’s been 3 years since I visited my family in France and I’m way overdue. So I took the plunge and booked a ticket (slowing down and asking myself what’s really important) and I leave in 2 weeks. I’ll be staying in the studio my dad keeps near Bastille. It’s in this amazing old courtyard where I spent my earliest years, have my earliest memories and where I lived when I was 20. (also, it was featured in this movie).
That’s me with my dad in the courtyard before my parents split up and my mom and I moved to LA. My parents’ old apartment was sold to the designer Paola Navone a couple years ago. She renovated it and got a ton of press (here). Here are some pics of it when it was under construction (here).
The studio we still have is on the floor above that apartment and is teeny tiny but has a beautiful view and good neighbors. I guess you could call it a pied-a-terre if you wanted to make it sound fancier than it is. It just got streamlined so I’ll take pics when I get there. We still have the house in Provence but I probably won’t have a chance to make it there on this trip.
I’m planning on working on a couple of special assignments while I’m away. I’m almost as booked as I want to be but If you’re looking for a photographer in Paris (or London) between Oct 20 -Nov 10, you can email me laure (at) laurejoliet (dot) com.
