Happy hump day! How's your week going so far?
I shot this Christmas story last Christmas, for Style at Home, and it's on news stands now. It was such a dark and gloomy day, so my assistant, Karen, and I had to be on our toes. Long exposures and lots of reflecting! Thought I'd share some of the day with you....
Angela Robinson is a Vancouver interior designer, and she produced this story along with Jamie Deck. They created most of the props - love that. The bird's nest advent calendar was a clever idea!
Angela busy at work, attaching the birds nests while the little ladies of the house observe.
A little Italian treat, baked by the homeowner, to keep us going on this long shoot.
Erin McLaughlin, editor-in-chief of Style At Home, vacuums up bits of nest before we start shooting.
The kitchen smelled great. Cookies everywhere. Naturally, I was all over it. Angela kept the decoration simple, with a loose garland of cedar and glass ornaments for the window.
A glimpse at some of the other handmade goodness that was going on for this story. Love the family's name spelled out in a variety of sizes and types of letters, for the front door.
After a long day, the cookies/props could finally, be eaten.
