I've been keeping a secret from you. I was contacted by someone about having a photo shoot at my house for my home to appear in their magazine! Oh my goodness, what a thrill! I'm not sure if I can disclose the name of the magazine yet so I will wait. But here are some photos of my big day yesterday!
Gridley + Graves are the photographers that came by to shoot the pictures. They brought so many nice things to use as props as well.
Look at all the flowers they brought!
They brought orange roses, sunflowers, blue and green hydrangeas and greenery. They also brought red and orange peppers, tomatoes, green apples and bread. It was fun to see how they used them in various rooms.
This is a glimpse on how they restyled the dining table. (Just overlook the other stuff on the table.)
Here is Gary getting the camera angled just right for the sitting room.
They also brought pillows, throws, rugs and table runners as props.
The biggest challenge was keeping my dog, Max, out of their way! He was so excited to see them bringing all their stuff in and moving things around the house. He knows no strangers! We eventually had to put him on a leash inside the house, since we don't have a crate, so he would leave them alone.
They even took a picture of my front porch after staging it to look pretty. It looks so bare in the winter time. These pretty sunflowers in the pitcher were part of that shot. They let me keep all the flowers when they were done! So, now I have beautiful bouquets sprinkled around my home.
It was a great day! I'm so honored to have been chosen and can't wait to see it in print when the magazine comes out. I'll keep you posted as soon as I know when that will be.
And a HUGE thanks goes out to my sweet sister, Kim, who passed my name along to the person scouting homes for the magazine!
Thanks for stopping by.
