First off, thank you all so much for the sweet words about my last post. I received the kindest comments and emails from many of you, and I really do appreciate them all. I just knew that you would share in my excitement. After all, many of you have been reading this blog from close to the beginning and have seen what a ride this has been. It really is amazing what opportunities this online world can bring your way. (Thanks, Al Gore. I guess I really owe this all to you.)
Okay, so on to the details of the day of the BH&G shoot. My nerves were a little shot, mainly because I just didn’t know what to expect (and maybe because I drank three cups of coffee. . . ). Either way, I was relieved to see them show up. (I felt much like I used to, waiting for Santa to arrive.)
I was lucky enough to get some of the very best out there to photograph and style my home. Not only is Rob Brinson a super-talented photographer, but he was one of the nicest, most down-to-earth guys I’ve met. Katie and I may have asked him a thousand questions while we waited for the shoot to start. He probably thinks we’re the most talkative Southern girls he’s ever met, but we like to know stuff :)
I was most interested in seeing the stylist do her thing. And, I had the fabulous Annette Joseph to work her magic. When we spoke on the phone the day before, she mentioned that some designers were a little uneasy about her making changes to their homes. I, on the other hand, was anxious to see what changes she thought needed to be made. You know how your own home just never feels completely “finished”? If her work is good enough for BH&G, then it was going to be good enough for me!
