Earlier this year, I was given the opportunity to shoot a beautiful home in Cape Cod, Massachusetts for Double Knot Home interior design. I am primarily a regional photographer with a focus on regional clients, but this client had previous ties to the Cape Cod area, and was in need of some updated photos of their personal home that was for sale. Needless to say, I was extremely excited to see a part of the country that I’ve never been to, and study a classic American architecture in the Cape Cod style of home building.
I spent a total of 4 days on the peninsula, and my process of shooting was based around my personal schedule of exploring some of the area as well as trying to get decent weather. I arrived in early June, and despite my optimistic view of the weather, most of the time I was dealing with overcast days and very little breaks in the weather. My primary focus was the interior, however, I really wanted to get some great photos of the exterior of the home.
The home itself was around 300 years old, and the interior was meticulously designed over the years that the designer lived there. I’m unfamiliar with the renovation timeline through the years, but the current state of the home has a wonderful open feel, with the living room right in the center of the home. From here, you could access the kitchen, dining room, screened porch, and master bedroom and bathroom.
The upper level of the home has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom, and in the rear of the home there is access to another bedroom and a breezeway to a laundry area and access to the garage and backyard.
It was a great opportunity to be able to photograph such a wonderful home with a well thought out design and long history. Here are a few more images I particularly loved.
