I had cleared my schedule mid-week to do something outside my norm, and spent the day at Lucie Wicker‘s photography studio in Cohasset to help out Kiki Walker Wellness with styling some photos. Kiki is launching a new website design in the next few weeks, and Lucie specializes in fitness lifestyle and activewear photography, so for me — where fashion and interiors dominate my thoughts — this was a cool experience to mix fitness with design.
The photography studio is up on the 2nd level of a barn with post and beam construction and lots of natural light. But what everyone notices upon entering is a center post with live edge braces.
When I arrived, I said to Lucie, “It looks like a cactus.” Then moments later, Meredith Tedford, one of the fitness models, commented exactly the same as she glanced up.
Spending the day in the barn studio made me crave a rustic space, and so I recall some of my favorite post and beam images:
