Back in March I spent two day with Cindy Bayon, Heather Menegat, and Muratore Corp. shooting this beautifully minimalist single family residence in San Francisco’s Cow Hollow neighborhood.
Cindy, who is now under her own nameplate, Bayon Design Studio, went with white-on-white and tons of diffused natural light. Working closely with Heather Menegat, who also styled the photoshoot, this home is nothing short of startling. One of the challenges with a space like this is creating depth and controlling color casts; we worked quite hard on some of these shots to keep things true to the actual feel of being in the space itself. In the case of the staircase shot above, we actually made this photo twice — the first attempt was close, but lacked that special “thing” I wanted. On the second day, things came together beautifully. Many thanks go to the talented Molly Mahar, who helped style as well as modeling in the photos!
We worked our butts off on this one – but had a good time, too. Here’s a few BTS shots — everyone wanted to take a turn on the rope swing in the home office, myself included!
