We’re so excited to feature our favorite love birds Taylor Foster and A.J. Mason through the lens of the talented Natalie Chitwood. “Power-couple” hardly begins to cover it. Mason is a modern-day-renaissance man in every sense of the word, from husband and father to photographer, carpenter, sculptor and visual artist there seems to be nothing that Mason can’t do. Taylor models, bakes and has her own green beauty brand Heaven on Mainstreet in New York’s Catskills. Natalie captured them in their upstate element looking as ethereal as ever in our uni-sex robes. They spend most of their time in this fairytale setting, tucked away in their beautifully renovated forest home.  


What led you to start your business? 

TF:  My business started as a bakery - which was a lifelong dream! After I had my  son I sold the restaurant and launched my skincare line shortly after. I’ve always been interested in holistic skincare and it was something I did for myself for years. It seemed like the practical thing to do since I didn’t have access to professional kitchen after I sold my bakery! The alchemy is similar to baking so it was an easy fit!

What three words would you use to describe yourself?

TF:  This is a hard one ... Quirky, Passionate, Honest

AJ:  All around man

What is your creative process like? 

TF:  I love the feeling of getting lost in my creative process.  I like taking chances and discovering new things.

AJ: I’m drawn to materials and subjects that have a unique character or history about them - A desire to amplify or warp the “essence” into a storied piece, sculpture, print, or finish.

Where is home for you? 

TF:  Outside.  I love being outside and surrounded by nature. A good friend of mine bought a cabin in Sullivan County and I started going to his spot. That’s what led me to find the building I bought in Bovina

AJ:  Ha. The home-base has been Bovina, NY for the past several years, with a workshop/studio in Andes, NY 


What inspires you?

TF:  Nature

What advice would you offer to your younger self?

TF:  Go for it

AJ:  Never-mind business school 

What are you dreaming of?

TF: Sleep 

AJ: Multi-faceted explorations and projects - constantly daydreaming!

Taylor, you’re a mother, wife, businesswoman, and model, how do you manage to balance everything? 

Deep breathes! I tell my partner to hug me and tell me everything is ok - that goes a long way for me! Stop and be grateful for what you have and what you're going through - even the hard stuff. The great thing about life is that it’s constantly changing so if you’re stressed out and feeling up against a wall just breathe deeply and know that things will shift. Conscious shifting of patterns helps too. Sometimes you have to let go of control and wanting to accomplish too much. Burn out is high these days - protect yourself!
