Have you ever perused a home design magazine or a beautiful Instagram feed with a perfect person in their perfect home doing their perfect hobby and wondered - why can I not live like that? Well, do not get down on yourself, we are here to let you know that no one lives like that. Those photographs are posed and the work to get that perfect shot is sometimes complicated and a bit over the top.
Having just finished one such shoot only an hour ago, we thought it would be fun to give you a behind the scenes look into the styling of a professional photoshoot.
We were contacted by a Japanese home living and lifestyle magazine a few weeks ago. They were interested in interviewing Shannon, shooting the 4 various divided yards and outdoor spaces at the ADU, as well as the connection from indoors to the out. This required not only staging 1 room but the entire property!
Even though this is shot in July, it had to be styled thematically to look and feel cooler for a fall publication. Fingers crossed for beautiful photos in the magazine!
