As I said earlier, we had “some people” come visit us last week. Those people just happened to be shooting my son’s room for a future article in their magazine—Better Homes and Gardens. So when I say we had to get our house ready, I’m not exaggerating when I tell you we washed, cleaned, dusted, vacuumed, and put away for DAYS.
On the day of the shoot, of course, we got to bask in our hard work. Since this feature had to include me in it (how’s that for some stress?), my husband was the entertainer for the day.
He did SUCH an awesome job, until I said, “Make sure you put the chicken salad on a lettuce plate.” I think there would have been less panic on his face if I told him I was pregnant with triplets. Lettuce plates—they’re complex.
Since the shoot was just for my son’s room (this time—hint hint), we had one stylist and a photographer. I was glad for that since it meant a light lunch and some bagels for breakfast. Nothing too stressful.
Of course, when Greg (the photographer) brought in his gear, a dose of reality hit me in the stomach. This was really gonna happen.
First things first—I have not painted my son’s dresser to match the rest of his room yet. I couldn’t even get it done for BHG. I’m a loser. Secondly, there’s Greg. With a camera contraption I drooled over.
And here’s the “hub”. After taking a picture, Greg continued to work his magic on his computer. Oh what I wouldn’t do for a screen like that!
They were both so awesome about making sure I approved of the final shots. I obviously can’t show you their pictures yet. It wouldn’t be very fair of me to reveal their reveal now, would it?
So what did I learn? Greg and Sandi are super wonderful to work with, and I was sad to see them go. I have a LOT to learn when it comes to photography. I need to stop eating chocolate for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
There’s my 15 minutes for ya. If you’ll excuse me, I’m going to sleep for three days and remind my husband that if he wants dinner, he’ll need to speak to my agent.
