It’s been a while since the last behind the scenes post, and after last week’s colorful bday party shoot, I definitely have my share of BTS photos to share. So, let’s start with those and slowly work our way into the fact that my dog is a diva…
The main focus for the bday party shoot was a crazy colorful wall, to make the white chairs and table linens pop. It took Linda and I about 2 hours to put together the honeycomb wall, from start to finish. It probably would have gone a little faster, had I not been so particular about spacing out the colors evenly. But you know, whatever.
The wall that we ended up shooting on is not actually a full wall (it goes up about 8 or 9 feet feet and then there’s a two foot break to open into the kitchen for reasons I will never understand). So we had to shoot the party scene pretty tight, which actually turned out to be better anyway. Thank you Kimberly for doing such an awesome job with the photography! Final photos of the party post here.
There are a couple of random outlets on that wall too, which I felt compelled to have a photo of, so I could show you. Luckily, all the outlets were covered by puffy colored things.
Moving right along…here’s an outtake from a recent project I did for Urban Outfitters. We were trying to figure out what top would look best as the background for the step by step photos. This one was not the winner. But aren’t my imaginary dyeing skills great?
This is what happens when you don’t get the chocolate eclair ice cream sandwiches back into the fridge before they melt.
Luna made her way into the office organization shoot because, and I quote, she is “A star and I need to treat her like one, dammit.” She tends to be a little free with her language when she hasn’t had her breakfast.
So, we took her picture to make her happy.
None of the photos made their way into the final posts (which you can see here and here if you’re interested). BUT, even though the photo is blurry, I had to share that second photo here to demonstrate just how happy she was to have her moment in the spotlight. Isn’t she pretty?!?!
And lastly…moving a honey dipper 1 inch to the left or right pretty much sums up how I spend the majority of my days. Grilled peaches and cream recipe here.
