Photos That Capture The Mood Of A Space

Photos That Capture The Mood Of A Space

by Shannon Bieter, May 23, 2014

I had the opportunity this week to work with Maxine Schnitzer, a gifted photographer who is as passionate about photography as I am about interior design.  It was so amazing watching her work so hard to get the exact shot that would capture the mood of the room I created for my client.

The space she photographed is filled with windows and natural light.  It’s an oasis for my client, who is a busy mom with two teenage boys. This is the area she retreats to when there is a crew of boys in her family room watching TV.

I believe every house should have one space that is tranquil and good for the soul — whether it’s inside or outside.

Here is a photo from our shoot that Maxine posted on her Facebook site.
