Before and After - Ken Taylor Photograpy

 Ken Taylor Photography
This is Ken's studio.  He bought this house about 8 years ago. It was a total mess when he bought it.  The windows, walls and bookcases were half painted all over the house.  He had one month to add walls, paint and move in.  It has wood ceilings,  wood floors, beautiful windows and the gardens are charming.   Here are some pictures from before and some after we designed it..


Notice the paint splotches on the ceiling. There were splotches of paint all over the house.

We covered up the fireplace to create an area for a portrait.

We just recently updated the studio with new accessories and pillows.

The living room window looks out to the back yard. It has a beautiful garden, rose arbors and a white picket fence.

An antique chair with gold accents.

The ceilings were sanded and sealed.

We  designed Ken's Portraits into our design plan...We wanted Ken's work to be the center focus, but still give the client the feel that she was in a living room.  That way, the client gets an idea of what the portrait will look like in her own home.

Ken Taylor's work.....

Ken's artistic eye captures details of a private moment.

A portrait makes a statement in a room. It can be apart of a design that says" elegance". Like an Art piece that is captured by an artist that makes your home set apart from others.

This portrait was also hand painted with oils to capture an artist's image.

Once in a life time!

Ken  photographed this little girl and hand painted it to be a work of art.

Hope you enjoyed the studio make over and Ken Taylor's photography.  ( OK- he is my hubby.! He also photographs all of mine and Danni's designs.)


  1. OMG each and every one of those kids is so beautiful! We've never done a portrait, but I love the lok!

  2. Hubby or not your husband does an amazing job with portraits! Beautiful home!

  3. Where do I begin? Ken is an extremely talented artist and photographer. The studio is warm and elegant, and provides the perfect backdrop for displaying his portraits. I love the gilded accent chair and the rich fabrics you used in the space. Even the gardens are enchanting. The combination of beautiful interior design and stunning photography effectively creates a single, visually inspiring and masterful work of art.
    Well done, Ken, Julie and Danni!
