Well, just 5 hours later, the photographer and his stylist/assistant left and I couldn't be happier with the way it all turned out. Here I thought the process for this home-town magazine wouldn't be nearly as exciting or dare I say, professional, as the shoots for Better Homes and Gardens publications - but boy, was I wrong!
They moved the bags from room to room, making sure they were completely out of view when the photo was taken. My tiny little house felt that much smaller with all those bags in here! Note to self: take guests luggage immediately to the guest room.
I got very little sleep prepping for this, so I'm wiped out! I'm off to bed, but would love to wake up tomorrow morning with lots of comments on the shots you were able to sleuth off the screen!
