There Was a Little Farmhouse....


Back in December of 2014, I received an inquiry from
my sweet Facebook friend Joey "Dixie" Dylla:

" Hi Anne. I really want to talk to you 
about photographing the Dylla Farmhouse....
probably after the first of the year 
when the Christmas decor is put away....
I can't wait to see the farmhouse through your eyes! "

I had been seeing the photos she'd been posting
on her Facebook wall of the progress they'd been making
in renovating her husband Richard's sweet childhood home,
the Dylla Farmhouse, and I was thoroughly charmed.
Of course I wanted to shoot it!


The plan upon completion was to turn the home into
a cozy country guest house, and succeed they did!
It is completely charming, lovely, and you can't help 
but feel the love of the generations
of Dylla's who called this place home in years past.



Located in St. Hedwig, Texas
{ the far East side of San Antonio/Bexar County }
it is a true farmhouse in every sense of the word.
Rolling green fields, a chicken house, 
and my fave, the heifers. More on them later!

Anyway, here are the photos from our shoot.
Enjoy!
















































I'm in love with this sweet little farmhouse,
and the Dylla's as well.

Now it's back to work for me,
hard at it editing a brand new home shoot!

Thank you, Romantic Homes Magazine...Published!


True story.
I can be a horrible nag. 
Especially when it's a project I'm passionate about. 

Just ask my friend Chris Berger
I harangued her for the better part of a year 
to get her to agree to let me photograph her 
1920s era Fredericksburg, TX Craftsman Bungalow. 

I told her the magazines would love it. 
I told her readers would love it. 
Shoot, I'm crazy about it! 

And now, at long last, I can say it to Chris... 
" neener, neener, I told ya so!! " 

Not only did Romantic Homes Magazine 
and Editor Jacqueline deMontravel love the house, 
they featured it in the current issue { March 2015 }, 
and at 8 pages, marks my largest RH feature ever! 

It is now my joy to share this fabulous home
with all of you!





















Thank you, Chris and Keith Berger! 
Thank you Romantic Homes and Jacqueline deMontravel! 
And thanks to all of you for looking!

Dreaming of Junking Calendar, 2015


If it's the dawn of a new year,
that pretty much means one things to us
 junkers, pickers, and hearty flea market-eers....

It's time for a brand new

VRS guru Sue LaLumia has asked me
to contribute photos for pretty much every year
she's been curating this little gem,
and I'm so proud and honored that Sue
chose 4 of my photos for the 2015 edition!


She is also featuring the stellar photography
ot Chartreuse & Co, Attic Antics, and herself!
It's a beautiful addition to any room in your home or office.


We hang ours every year on the old vintage dining cabinet
by the back door.


And one of my 4 months included is February....
I shot this image in the totally amazeballs vintage glamper
belonging to my good friend Theresa Cano

To quote Sue:

"If you dream of "junking", prowling antique stores, 
and trawling flea markets, this is your calendar!


For when you can't be out junking, 
this Dreaming of Junking Calendar
—VRS' new 2015 calendar (6th year in a row!)—
will slake your junking jones while you're trapped at your desk, 
but wish you were at an antique show or flea market.
This Antiques Calendar features gorgeous photos
of the vintage treasures and displays we all love, 
featuring the photography of some of the best junkers (and me). 
Each month has a gorgeous color photo that should have you drooling.


I've included dates of most major US flea markets 
and antique shows nationwide—from Warrenton/Round Top and Brimfield, 
to smaller local and regional shows! 
Plan those junk jaunts and girlfriend getaway weekends in advance. 
Don't let those dates sneak up on you. 
But remember: if you see me at a flea market, 
I've got dibs on that vintage typewriter!

These are standard 11" x 8.5" calendars and are spiral bound, 
on satin paper (semi-gloss). These are wall calendars to hang in your office or home."

Thank you once again, Sue!

Beautiful owner Jill Elliott!

More space, more of everything divine!

Loving the bird cages.





These purses....oh my.






And the most beautiful earrings anywhere.








The new Haberdashery men's merchandise
