Photo break

Darlings, thank you so much for your sweet comments, tweets, and emails in regards to my big announcement! You're making me so excited for this new chapter! And I have to apologize for making you wait SO long for the results of my photo shoot last month. You've been very patient! You'll be able to see them ALL in my new portfolio page, so please do click over! I thought I'd also share a little bit of a behind-the-scenes process.

Here is the first picture we shot, pretty much as our living room actually is (plus some fresh flowers):

I wanted to also highlight our new seating area, so we did this shot:

But because of the angle of the shot, the arm of the chair and the table being where they were created funky planes in the photo and looked like weird blobs. So this is what it looked like in the room while the shot above was being taken:

And while we were able to use a lot of natural light, we also used some artificial light for most of the shots, so we had a few of these puppies around.

It was SUCH a fun experience. I don't have enough great things to say about my photographer, Brandon Sawaya. I learned a ton and can't wait for my next shoot!
