PHOTO SHOOT





Thursday was the photo shoot for my sisters house [the ORC].  

It was a heck of a good time....

First of all I am so grateful to Lisa Mowry for pitching it.....even though as she says "once done it is out of my hands"......  I was lucky they liked it and thought it was a good fit for one of the BH&G special interest publications "100 Ideas".  

I had worked with photographers Anthony-Masterson before about 6-7 years ago on a small townhouse I did in Virginia Highlands.  They are pretty hip and cool I might add.


On this shoot we had the talent of Annette Joseph and her styling.
It was a fun day and I learned about "shooting in the dark" with no lights on.  Who knew.

This was a project for a single girl who has since gotten married and has a child now....Remember Baby G's nursery?


Thinking back on it she wanted to get rid of that black pottery barn bed and I talked her into keeping it.

 I'm nothing if not practical and always concerned about that "budget".   I think it anchors the room nicely and look at those pretty lilac walls:)  What color doesn't go with turquoise?

Anyway back to Thursday.  

Christine Anthony and Owen Masterson are a husband/wife photography and filmmaking team based in Atlanta.  If you go to their website you are going to see a bunch of gorgeousness for real.

We had a list of instructions on what angles,  how to style, and what flowers to use  [Lisa and I were the "stylist" on this one].  Lucky for us we really did not have to change much.  

I was pleased with that because I had worked so hard on styling this room....

This was a space that wasn't changed at all.  Whew....cause I think I spent the most time on it.  At first the large picture was leaning but I needed more height so I hung it.  Made a huge difference. 

Just getting the right texture and scale can be such a crap shoot sometimes you know?

It was a long day....9:30-4:30 but it went by fast thanks to all of the laughs.  We discussed the cold weather [my front yard looks like frozen tundra].......we transformed ourselves into Joe Pesci [in Goodfellas or My Cousin Vinny] so we had to use the accent and cuss a little.


Owen is from Brooklyn so there was no confusing that with a New Jersey accent.

I loved when we were talking about using a book or a vase in a certain area and Christine said "well lets audition it"......Oh yes....I am so stealing that.


In the middle of the day Owen decided we needed to take a picture where we were all moving to create this blurred look and he also shot Lisa and I discussing the "bunny trophy" which you can see on their blog


If you follow me on Instagram then you got to see a few of these shots.

Here is a little information that Lisa shared with me about sending in your projects.  The best way for her to view it is download the pictures and send in an email.  It really takes her too much time if you are sending different links about before and afters.

Just a hint:)

It was an ideal day with Owen, Christine, and Lisa....true professionals.

Me....not so much cause I can be a silly bugger at times.

How long is the "polar vortex" going to last anyway?

Photographers' website is indeed full of beauty. Congrats on getting published. This post made my day (week, month). I used the same basket with books on my bookcase. Now I KNOW it looks as good as I think it does! 'Audition it'? Genius! Look forward to purchasing the magazine. Go away, polar vortex, go away.
