There have been a lot of random happenings in the studio (and out) lately.
So, I thought I’d share some behind the scenes snippets…Including the time I spilled 2 galloons of paint in the driveway, a botched project that never saw the light of day (until now), papaya outtakes, and more.
Let’s get to it…
Outtake from the brushstroke nails shoot. I loved this photo, but since you literally can’t see any part of the nails in this one, it didn’t make the cut.
Celebrated 50k on Instagram with a cake! Because how else would you celebrate something like that?
When you need you DIY vintage hat pendant lights to hang in a very specific area, that doesn’t have rafters, you get creative.
If you’re wondering exactly what the hell is going on here, don’t worry, I am too. 🙂 Just kidding, I know what’s going on here… We attached my DIY blanket ladder to the ductwork and then hung the pendant lights from the ladder.
If you follow me on Snapchat, you’ve already heard the sob story about the paint spill. But I never explained WHY 2 galloons of paint ended up spilling, right next to a knocked over ladder.
Long story short, you should never use completely full paint cans to weigh down a ladder that is holding up a large piece of drywall / backdrop. Especially when it’s windy outside. 🙁
Sometimes the idea of something ends up being MUCH better than the finished product. And that was unfortunately the case for these ‘LOVE’ crescents. Anissa did an awesome job on them, but once we added the glaze and sprinkles, it went downhill. Actually, that’s completely my fault. I’m the one who added it. Dumb move on my part. Hard to read what it said after adding the glaze and it just didn’t photograph well.
Luckily, we had these funnel cake love letters as a back up and they turned out great.

Anissa tirelessly working on shaving the bottom parts of the chocolate with a knife, so that they were perfectly smooth for the V-Day candy boxes DIY.
Leftover donuts from the breakfast in bed shoot. Yum!
Trying to figure out exactly where I should be in this field of tall grass, so that no one can see me. Hadn’t figured it out at this point. Here’s how it turned out though, in case you’re wondering.
And last but not least….papaya outtakes! We bought 6 or 7 giant papayas to play around with for this post and then we only ended up using one. Ha! Of course that would happen.
Naturally, I had paint all over my hands while styling because it was the same day as the great paint spill of 2016.
What kinds of things have you been getting into lately? Anything strange / crazy / funny to share? I’d love to hear about it.
