Photoshoot days are always so exciting – nonstop, on the go, and exhausted at the finish line – but so darn exciting! I like to be on site bright and early to begin the process of staging. I arrive bright and early, with a Venti cup in hand and a car filled to the brim with delightful trinkets and items of decor, ready to pull up my sleeves and get to work. You see, there are a lot of behind the scenes blood, sweat, and tears that go into these glossy shoots. “Wait a minute! Take it back a step or two. Blood?” you may be asking. Yes! Sometimes you can’t resist that most beautiful, oversized crystal on a pedestal telling you that it will look so fabulous sitting on that built in shelf next to the fireplace. I mean, c’mon, we’re talking an oversized, heavier than a sack of many potatoes, crystal on a pedestal here. Who could walk away from that? Point being, sometimes more than two people aren’t enough to carry such an item and before you know it, limbs are being crushed.
Anyway! Despite the dashing about I always find my happy place – chopping accent pillows on beautiful beds, filling vases with fresh flowers, and creating tablescapes for guests that will never arrive, among many others.
I’ll say it again, Photoshoot days are always so exciting. They are the days I get to dwell, for a moment, in the spaces I spent so many working hours in and a chance to share what I love with all of you.
Let no detail go untouched
My wonderful, talented, fabulous, amazing photographer (can you tell I’m a fan?), Velen (VWC Studio), captured every space with such patience and care, and put her 100% all into each scene. I couldn’t be more grateful to have such a talent on my team.
Tell me that crystal wasn’t worth it!
The table is set and ready for its 5 minutes of fame!
The Master Bathroom was a treat and a retreat.
Horses… of course!
What a backdrop! And what a way to call it a wrap!
