The photographer of this charming cottage certainly tweaked my interest when I saw this shot, these cute little guys may look a bit apprehensive about posing for this photo, however the image below shows how relaxed they are about their charming home.
Michael Grimm is the photographer behind the lens of this East Hamptons home, shot for Hamptons Cottages and Garden Magazine in 2014. When photographing the interior or exterior of a home, the image should capture a mood, a sense of belonging, a glimpse into the lives of those that live there. Great interior photography is not about adding props and styling, it is about capturing the essence of its owners and what makes their home their sanctuary. This may be a collection of artwork, antiques or the overall style of a home. It may have a coastal or country feel, or it may feel like you are in the middle of Provence when in fact you are in a city suburb on the other side of the world. Each image should tell a story, allowing the viewer to see beyond a space or a piece of furniture and to understand the owner's passions. Michael has certainly achieved this with his wonderful photography, where every image tells a story and reveals a little more about the people (pets) that live there.
I hope you have enjoyed the beautiful images of this home and conjured up a vision of who you think lives there, apart from its cute doggy occupiers.
