Photo Shoot

Yesterday was the Country Sampler photo shoot day at my house. The photographer Bill Mathews and stylist Gloria Gayle arrived bright and early in the freezing cold, snowy weather. The snow was so pretty all day. You can see the snow out my windows in some of the pictures I posted here. My house is not very big and there is a lot of camera equipment that they bring with them. There was a lot of squeezing by each other all day with the equipment all over the place. It was so neat to watch them work ! All the little tricks they used to get things that they wanted in the pictures and to get the lighting just right was fun to watch. The shots they did were just great from what I saw on the computer they used here. They sure can make a room look wonderful in the pictures ! I can't wait to see all the pictures when Bill sends them to me. Of course I can't post them on my blog as it would ruin the fun of seeing them in the magazine when that issue comes out. I had lunch for them here and after a short lunch break they got back to work and finished around 6pm. It was a long day. There were 14 shots that they were supposed to get and there was no sun all day , just a wintry, gray sky, which made it take a little longer. It was just a great day and an exciting experience. Bill and Gloria were wonderful and so very
nice ! I feel so lucky and honored to get to do this and have my house in my favorite magazine ! Thanks Donna Marcel for liking my pictures and making this happen !
