Seattle-born photographer Lisa Romerein specializes in architecture, interiors, gardens, food, travel, portraits, and lifestyle. Since 1995, she has lived in Santa Monica, California, shooting feature stories for Martha Stewart Living, Coastal Living, House Beautiful, and other magazines. Shooting "The Homemakers" (July/August 2012), she was inspired by the reuse of a eucalyptus tree that had to be cut down on the property. "They made it into pavers on the back patio, a coffee table outside, sand stools for the kids' play area. Genius!" she exclaims.
