The photo shoot for Better Homes and Gardens
magazine was Thursday. The two winning rooms for the Home Improvement Challenge
were being photographed. The process was interesting to watch and the amount of effort and work that goes into a photo shoot is amazing. First, Brett met with the stylist, Lauren Payne on Tuesday so she could see the rooms and get a feel for what she needed to prop them and make them picture perfect. Then, the team showed up bright and early on Thursday and were there all day shooting both the first floor bathroom and studio/craft room on the third floor. Laura Moss, the photographer is incredibly talented and the pictures will no doubt be stunning. Pick up any home magazine and you’ll probably see her name under some beautiful photographs.
Here, Laura (on the left) and Lauren (right) discuss a shot.
And taking the perfect shot.
Their skill, attention to detail, and great attitude made it a pleasure to have them in our home. Laura’s assistant, Jason, was part of the day as well, but he was so busy dealing with an incredible amount of equipment and three levels of this house, that he never stopped long enough to get in a photo.
The article and pictures should appear in the September, 2008 issue of Better Homes and Gardens
magazine, out on newsstands August 19, 2008.
Oh the anticipation!!!
