painting, organizing, re-doing and decorating…
Just a couple weeks earlier~
the editor of Lotus Publications in Europe emailed me about publishing
photos of my dining room and home. We emailed back and forth several times
and then she offered to send Mark Lohman to my home to take photos for her magazines.
I was already familiar with Mark and all the work that he does with so many fantastic magazines,
books and publications – he is an amazing photographer.
After Mark and I talked on the phone
the magazine was looking for in this shoot and then I got busy.
I changed a few things around the house to create the ‘look’ they wanted
and then re-thought everything I changed about 50 times
which caused me to change it again
and then I re-thought those changes again…
you get the drift.
Not to mention those pretty sparkly chandeliers for the dining room that were ordered
in plenty of time were delayed.
Not just delayed…
They were Delayed -delayed.
They actually arrived just a couple days before Mark did.
As well, it wasn’t just one room that needed to be, styled and photo ready~
But once Mark arrived, I started to relax a bit.
vignettes and angles he planned to work with. He seemed to know exactly what photos
he thought the magazine would like and what we would focus on photographing.
( made with the fresh bread that was the photo prop in the kitchen~ it was delicious!)
and then we sat for a bit to chat outside on the patio.
The day was absolutely so much fun and I learned so much from working with Mark
From the styling tips he has picked up from the pro’s he’s worked with,
to photography tips and camera settings,
to talks about family and life in general
He is so sweet and fun to work with and he made this amazing day even better.
in Casa Chic in Italy, in Maison Chic in France and in Germany as well.
They also sent over a preview of their
Italian Casa Chic magazine cover a couple weeks ago
to Lotus Publishing and to Mark Lohman for such an absolutely amazing experience.
I’ll share more when the magazines arrive!
