Well, after some emails and photos back and forth, the editors asked to feature our CURRENT home, but I said,
“No, that’s ok, once is enough…”
Um. . . . . . maybe not!?
Are you kidding me??
So after some months (yes, it really takes that long) stylists and photographers were once more working their magic all over my house. The process of developing an article like this is lengthy and quite amazing, and I can’t wait to see the finished product with you on the 12th! But in the meantime, here’s your backstage pass!
Because I had been through the process once before, it was not quite so nerve-wracking as the first time. Even though this article would feature my WHOLE HOUSE AND MY FAMILY, I knew better what to expect, and I knew the people on the team, who are all so nice! Since we shared the same goal–which was a fantastic shoot and to show the house in the best light–we actually had a lot of fun!
For the previous article, I had my list of additional items to provide for styling the rooms, but this time the stylist took care of a lot of that, and I wasn’t so stressed about getting the house ready. Instead, I could save all my stress for what to wear! They want you to be casual, but y’all, when I know this photo is going to be seen by a LOT of people, I have a hard time with jeans and flip flops! (You know, I’m a Southern girl, and my mama taught me that you wear
DRESSES for special occasions. And this was VERY special.)
