What a whirlwind of a day! I am sitting here all prettied up, blinking away at my computer screen feeling a sense of relief that the day is over. Don’t get me wrong…this day is what every Martha Stewart wannabe dreams of (on a local level!). I had SUCH a fun time today, styling a little “Garden Party” and posing with my kids in my studio for the Mom article (possible cover?!) for Go Gilbert magazine!
During the Garden Party shoot, I learned that it takes quite a bit of effort to get the right shot. A ton of prep time, hair, makeup, clothing changes, set design…..all for one winning photo! We did that about 7 times, and voila, you have a fashion spread! I can’t wait to see it come to life in the magazine!
Two gorgeous girls and their equally gorgeous children came over for the shoot. With children in the mix, things get a little tougher but the photographer, Paul Sebring was amazing. He was relaxed, fun and all around great. I had so much fun working with him, and Sondra Barr, the editor on this project!
I would have taken more pictures, but I really tried to hold myself back and be professional, instead of acting like the giddy little school girl that I was. We’ll all just have to wait for the issue to come out in May!
After the Garden Party was over, I was summoned to get hair and makeup done by the girls from XS Salon. They went with a 50s housewife style, and I even wore an apron for the shoot! (How Martha is that?!) The apron is pictured above and I picked up as the inspiration for the entire party! I can’t wait to see how the photos turn out! If I had more time, I would have dropped 20 pounds and got a tan before this! But, who knew?
What a fabulous day……I’m off to Divas…a night relaxing (and crafting) with the girls!
