A room to live and work in

Our living room doubles as Alison's office and a place to meet with couples for wedding consultations as well as a significant part of our home. We wanted to create a nice and personal space where we would feel comfortable with friends and family, but one that also allowed us to meet with people on a professional level.

To create the room, we started with the rug to give us the color palette, which was Alison's mom's idea - her mom helped create a design plan for the room. Then we chose colors for the walls and ceiling to match the rug (swiss coffee for the ceiling, whispering wheat for three walls, and terracotta red for the accent wall). Next, we painted a couple of salvaged tables to pull out the blues from the rug. We also had silk drapes made to not only help with insulation, but also give the place a little more of a "homey" feel. The furniture is a combo of thrift stores, Anthropologie, CB2, Therapy, and Ikea. We're still short one coffee table (which a friend is making), and wall art.

Nikki Kellogg

About a month ago, I was approached to put together an aspiring dancer's portfolio. Nikki Kellogg, 22, is planning to move to L.A. to audition and make a push for being a dancer, and she said she needed a portfolio to show around. This was an entirely new project for me, and we spent quite a bit of time planning our shoots and what kind of photos she wanted to showcase her looks and talent. We did a combination of "studio-esque" shots with dancing in the street and more traditional head shots. Nikki was really wonderful to work with, which made my job a whole lot easier. Here are just a few of the photos that we made prints of for her final portfolio. Photos by Alison Yin

Oakland Community Acupuncture

My friends and acupuncturists, Ky and Chris run Oakland Community Acupuncture, OCA. These guys are fantastic! They are very professional and when I am there I just want to hang out. Last year they hired me to shoot some images for them for the new website that they were building. Well, the website is up and you can check it out here.
