Shooting the Photo Shoot

So, yesterday was the big day when the photographer came over and took the photos for the upcoming May/June local magazine issue. All went as planned and I was happy to have every detail complete (I was literally placing the napkin on the last plate while Amelia opened the door for the photographer).

He was in and out pretty quickly and I really didn't have to prep him on much - he is a professional after all.

I did warn him that the apples in the bowl on top of the buffet were stylized the way I wanted them, but that Wyatt wanted the apple to the right to sit on top and make a pyramid - he has been adamant about this for the last two weeks. We were going to have to work together on this in case Wyatt caught us! Amelia hung out with me and asked the photographer how many big kids, little kids, etc that he had - Amelia always has a long list of questions for anyone and everyone. Wyatt played the Wii, but happened to pop his head out just as we were saying our goodbye's to the photographer in the entryway. Wouldn't you know that he didn't even say "hi" to the photographer, but immediately asked him why the apple wasn't on top like it was supposed to be. Being the nice photographer that he was he told Wyatt that he had to move it - whew, he took the fall for me!!!!

I'm excited to see what photos they use for the article and can't wait to share it with you. In the meantime, I will take some shots of the space so that you are able to see the final reveal prior to the magazine articles publication.
