new styling work: bon appetit october issue


Last June I had the pleasure of prop styling a story for Bon Appétit.. The shoot centered around Portland's very own Duane Sorensen, the founder of Stumptown Coffee, and a little brunch he hosted at his apartment. The art direction was inspired by Duane's personal style and space. Special thanks to all my favorite Portland boutiques who helped us out with props for this story: Cloth + Goods, Maven Collective, Rejuvenation, Vintage Design Collective, Alder and Co., Thea's Interiors, Portland Homestead Supply, Bernadette Breu, Reverse Chronology, West Elm. Big thanks to my wonderful assistant, Jennifer Morris


We had tables full of amazing props for this story! Wish you could have seen all of them. See more from this story at Bon Appétit.

  1. Yes! I noticed. I was just saying how I wished Bon Appétit would have more people and stylized moments in the magazine instead of close up food shots. Don’t get me wrong I love food shots, but I like to see people interacting with food too.

    So glad you were part of what I was really digging in the new issue.

  2. This is so fantastic Chelsea! And glad to see you blogging more too! Hope you’re having a blast in Buenos Aires, your pictures on IG have been awesome! 🙂
