Last February I flew to Toronto for a quick shoot for Kinfolk's new book The Kinfolk Home. I photographed the home of John and Juli, owners of the beautiful store Mjölk. I loved their minimalistic home with Scandi and Japanese influences. It's a gorgeous book you should pick up a copy if you haven't. Above some outtakes and photos from the book.
I was in Miami last week shooting the beautiful newly opened Marion Miami, a restaurant designed by my pal and client Robert McKinely. It's such a beautiful space, I was thrilled to be included in bringing it to life. The details are on point, bringing touches of France to Miami. They offer a table side cheese cart, raw bar, freshly baked bread all made in house, table side filleting of salt baked fish and rotisserie chicken. It's a place to impress. Afterwards go next door to El Tucán for a 1940's Cuban inspired cabaret and live music. Be sure to check them out next time you're in Miami!
Amsterdam is one of my favorite cities in the world. When I went last November after my trip to Antwerp I fell in love with it, which to be honest was a little unexpected. Most people fall in love with Paris or Rome but Amsterdam is my jam. This city is a perfect size, I love the canals, the bike culture, the Dutch, the food is great, its super international and everyone speaks english which is nice. The design is beautiful and the apartments super cute. I oddly feel super at home there, I think I must of lived there in another life :) This time around I swung through for a long weekend to see some friends in between my time in Copenhagen and Paris. I dined at De Kas with my pal Sam. The most beautiful restaurant with gardens surrounding and an indoor greenhouse. Cruising around on a bike in this city is one my favorite things to do in the world, my time there is never long enough. Love you Amsterdam, be back soon.

Not sure if y'all are familiar with One Fine Stay? They are a luxury apartment rental service who has spaces in London, Paris, New York and Los Angeles. They have two very beautiful well designed magazines Homes and Guestbook, which are only available in the homes they rent. It's a little sad, I think they should be released to the public, they're so pretty! Last spring I shot a feature for them in one of their Brooklyn brownstones. I've stayed in a couple One Fine Stay apartments, one in London and one in Paris. I highly recommend it, they supply you with an iPhone and all these luxury amenities which is great. Thanks Lisa and Jonathan for your pretty faces, and April for your styling skillz.
