TOP 5 | Coffee Table Books

Friday, January 31, 2014

Introducing a new series to the blog today TOP 5! I've been wanting to do a little series like this for a while, a place where I can share a few of my current favourite things.  Hope you enjoy it!

TOP 5 Coffee Table Books
Up first is my top 5 favorite coffee table books (as of right now).  I get a lot of Q's via instagram about what the names of the books are so decided to dedicate my first top 5 to this.  If you've been following along annawithlove for a while you'll know I have a weakness for beautiful coffee table books, every chance I get I buy one.  At the end of the day all I want to do is turn off my computer not look at any electronic decided and dive into a book filled with visual inspiration.

Audrey, in a word: Perfection.  This book is perfect for any Audrey lover.  I don't think I'd ever get sick of looking at photographs of her.  Grace and elegance this book is filled with beautiful quotes, iconic photographs of Audrey & also a few not so well-known photographs of the star.


After I watched the HBO Documentary I was itching to get my hands on this book.  An interesting look at the fashion editor's role throughout the years and plenty of behind the scenes photos (which of course I love).  Below one of my favourite photographs from Annie Leibovitz. 


Tim..what is there really to say about Tim? He has been one of my favourite photographers for as long as I can remember.  Looking through this book is like being transported to wonderland.  His genius always inspires me to push the limits in my own photography.  All his sets and props are life sizes no photoshop etc…talk about bringing your A game! 



#2 Bazaar Greatest Hits
Confession: Bazaar is my favourite fashion magazine.  Of course Vogue is a close second but Bazaar just does it for me.  This is one of the first coffee table books I ever bought and I still flip through it weekly.  Such iconic and memorable photoshoots, it always puts a smile on my face and get's those creative juices flowing.


#1 Kate Spade | things we love
And my #1 favourite coffee table book…are you really surprised? Kate Spade, things we love! This book is happiness on every page, stunning photographs, beautiful design, bright bold colours and cheeky copy.  Everything I love in one beautiful place.

And now I want to go spend an hour or two with these beautiful books ;)
Hope you all enjoyed it!

Lots of love,
Anna

Thursday, January 30, 2014


So thrilled to share Ashely & Malone's brand spankin' new gorgeous website! Ashley & Dallas are a husband and wife design team and they were my last shoot of 2013...what a way to end the year! Confetti, champagne, balloons…the whole nine yards.  These two bring the fun!  

I am so honoured to have been chosen to photograph them for their new website.  Ashley and Dallas are both beyond gracious, kind and talented.  It was such a pleasure working and creating this shoot with them.  I can't wait to see how far they go in 2014!

If you all need a web face lift be sure to check them out, they won't disappoint! 

Lots of love,
Anna

this mug will be mine very soon ;)
Last week, I walked out of the cold and into the south of France.  A breath of fresh air and the hope that spring will be here soon (common sunshine).  Chapters Indigo's spring/summer preview was nothing short of exciting.  Bright beautiful colours everywhere, in books, pillows (how gorgeous are the pillows?), jewelry, notebooks and more.  I was a happy lady making my mental shopping list.  I've said if before and I'll say it again, Chapters doesn't disappoint!  Cannot wait for all these goodies to be available in store (some of it already is!)

Hope this post warms you up a little on this cold hump day! 

Lots of love,
Anna
