Well, our photo shoot is over. And after working so hard to get everything ready for the last two months, I have crashed!
What an adventure! It would be one thing to have one or two rooms ready to photograph but having eight rooms ready really wiped me out! My husband claims I collapsed on the kitchen counter as soon as the photographer left. He might be right.
I know HE was the one who drove an hour to Grand Rapids to pick up our son at the airport while I took a nap!
Anyway, our photographer was Kristen Wheeler at khphotographics and she was so enjoyable! She's originally from Michigan and now lives with her husband close to New Orleans. She came alone and stayed almost three hours. She used one lense and got overall shots of each room. Then changed lenses and got close-ups of details.
She also did a live video connecting to all the people at Romantic Homes! That was cool. If you're on Facebook you can watch it on my page. Otherwise, here's the link.
So in the next several posts, I'll try to show you our house as it was staged for the photo shoot.
In our entry, I bought two sweetheart roses for my little wheelbarrow. I just placed the plastic pots in the wheelbarrow and covered them with foliage. This picture was taken before I staged the French shopping cart.
I got a new camera and I love that it takes a wider shot. Here you can see the entry as it goes into the rest of the house. You're looking straight down a hall and into the kitchen. You can also see how our stairs go up.
I haven't shown you the other end of the room for a while. The clock used to be on this wall. It's now in the living room. (see the last post) And these pictures used to be above the piano.
We were blessed with beautiful weather! This was the view out our patio door at the end of the room.
Here's sweet Kristen working hard.
I'm at home waiting for our new shower door to be delivered and tomorrow our new slipper tub will arrive. Our son will be here until Tuesday, and on Wednesday the demo on our master bathroom starts!
(Don't tell my family but I was happy to be the one to stay home today and wait for the shower door! Ha!)
I'll try to be back as soon as I can and share the rest of the rooms with you!
love and blessings~
