At Home in Charlottesville

As a photographer of many things, I feel inspired when I meet a couple that shares a strong connection and allows me into their life for a bit of time. Michael and Mallory are based in the picturesque city of Charlottesville, Virginia. Mallory is a wedding and floral designer and she works from home on weddings and other projects.

At the time, the couple was in the process of building their dream home and we spoke about what elements would make the perfect abode. Working from home can be a challenge. I find problems with focusing on work, un-focusing on work when it's time, and getting out of pajamas every once in a while. Working from home can also be beyond rewarding. Mallory and Michael enjoy slow mornings together at home before Michael leaves for work. Even on the weekends when she is preparing for a wedding, Mallory can enjoy the company of her love, as he brings coffee, helps out if needed or just watches on as his wife creates.

The best thing about spending more time at home is spending more time together. Not too long after this session, Mallory and Michael completed their beautiful new home, perfect for slow living and working from home.
