I just had one of the best weekends ever. One of my best friends, Kelli, came to visit me and instead of taking her to the beach on Saturday like most normal friends would do, I put her to work as my design assistant for a couple of photo shoots, along with my sister Melissa.
There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes for the beautiful interior photos seen on blogs and in magazines. Not to ruin the mystery, but there is quite a bit of preparation (3 full days worth), staging and positioning that needs to be done, and constant moving of accessories and furniture to get the perfect shot. The day was long and exhausting but definitely some of the most fun I've had with some of my most favorite people.
I hired Stacey Sutherland to photograph the 2 different locations on Saturday and I can't say enough great things about her. She was so fun and incredibly easy to work with, not to mention she has a great eye and a lot of interior photography experience and helped me to edit the rooms and helped me determine when something was too much or too little.
I haven't seen the photos yet, but I know they're going to be beautiful. She shoots interiors, still lifes, and people. Below (and above) is a sampling of Stacey's work that I stole from her website, go here to see more!
