Exteriors – Custom Modern Home (Bloomington Normal Architectural Photographer)

Steve Kibler is an architect based in Chicago. Recently, he commissioned me with making a series of exterior photographs of this recently completed residence in Bloomington, IL. The home is uniquely beautiful!

20141110_BlogPost_SteveKibler_BooneCtHouse-1I arrived in time to make some full daylight images, then stayed through dusk. What do you think? Which lighting pattern better showcases the home’s design?

20141110_BlogPost_SteveKibler_BooneCtHouse-4 One of the key design elements is the cedar cladding shown below in the entryway. Coincidentally, Steve first contacted me without knowing that I am related to Ross, who was part of the crew from Prairie Woodworks that built and installed all of the cladding and interior woodwork. (Ross is my brother-in-law, and regular readers will remember that he built our table.) So this was an especially meaningful assignment for me!

And in the rear, these glorious windows!

20141110_BlogPost_SteveKibler_BooneCtHouse-3Unfortunately, there was some wind on this otherwise lovely evening – but we wanted to shoot in a hurry before we lost fall color and leaves and warm weather this week, so it was the lesser of two evils. 
20141110_BlogPost_SteveKibler_BooneCtHouse-5Thank you for the opportunity, Steve! Thank you to the accommodating owners for their assistance on this shoot. Congratulations to all of you on this remarkable home.

About Mosaic Collective, LLC

I am Holly Baumann Ambuehl, founding member of Mosaic Collective, LLC, which was founded in early 2017 and is based in Central Illinois. I own and operate Mosaic Collective with my partner in business and life, my husband, Nathan. Mosaic Collective, LLC houses our rental property, my consulting contracts (with the nonprofit and public sectors on various work), and also my commercial and portrait photography business, which has been doing business as Holly Baumann Photography since 2008 long before the formation of our LLC. My blog posts feature client work, but I just love to write, so I also write about owning a business, food and drink, travel, and sometimes, my personal life! I am always honored when clients trust me to capture their vision, and equally so when my readers converse with me about what I've photographed or expressed here. I hope we'll have an opportunity to collaborate professionally and/or become friends. I'd love to hear what you think! - Holly
