It was so much fun and the whole time I was thinking to myself….“This is what I was stressing out about?! I’m actually kinda of enjoying this!” I changed clothes a couple of times & we took several shots of myself in front of my little office space. Bjorn wanted to make sure that the magazine had several options in terms of photos, so between the different outfits & the different poses…..I think he did his job well!
As soon as the photos were taken, they showed up on the computer where Alex reviewed them. He made sure that all of the details within the photos looked good and he definitely had a good eye! He was quick to fix my top or fix my jeans, if they weren’t laying quite right and I’m sure he was looking for a lot of other technical things as well that were way over my head in terms of the photography!!
When Alex wasn’t busy with the technical side of things, we would talk about Southern Illinois, the movie “Bridesmaids”, & the hilarious Kristin Wiig from Saturday Night Live…….just another example of how REAL these people were & how much they were just like you & me.
Once my part of the shoot was over, they snapped a few shots of the office by itself & also zoned in on some of the details of the space like the stenciling, the kitchen table turned custom desk & shelves, & all of the different storage options I had available in the space….
They all left my house that day around 1:00pm. My husband & I went out for lunch at my favorite little Mexican restaurant afterwards to celebrate my big day, & then we went to my mother-in-laws to pick up the kiddos! It was such a fun day & an experience that I will always remember!! I’m so glad that I have these photos to look back on & also to share with all of you!!
And just in case they are reading……
Emily, Bjorn, & Alex,
Thank you all so much for such a fabulous day & for making me feel at ease!!! You guys are awesome!!
