Photographing the Ship’s Knees Inn on Cape Cod, Ma.

June 9th, 2013

I just finished a shoot at the charming Ship's Knees Inn, a rambling, 190 year old restored sea captain's home in East Orleans, Ma. The inn and its location, about a 4 minute walk to Nauset Beach, are fantastic. Innkeeper/owners Peter and Denise Butcher are in the midst of a complete redesign of their website and needed some fresh, new photography to capture the inn's ambiance. During my scouting trip, the three of us sat down and talked about the appeal of the inn and what they were looking for with the new website and possibly a new printed brochure. I walked through the inn — all 16 rooms, 1 suite and an apartment, made some notes and took some preliminary pics. In addition to my "Prepping Your Inn for the Shoot" list that I give to all of my hospitality clients, I made room by room suggestions to Peter and Denise a couple of weeks prior to the shoot for some furniture rearrangement and additions in the way of throws, pillows, rugs… to give some of the rooms a more fluid and relaxing look. Denise has a great eye for color and she was spot on with her purchases which I worked into the rooms when I styled for the shoot. They were so pleased with the way things turned out that not only are they keeping all of their new "props" and some of the new rearrangements, but I'll be making a return trip later this month to photograph more of the interior and the exterior, including their grounds and gardens in all of their June beauty. I'm very excited to go back.

Below are a few images from the shoot. Check back with my blog and I'll post a link to their new website with more of my photography once it goes live.
