I was so honored to be working with Helen Norman last Friday. She shot my client's family room. Her work has appeared in national publications such as Southern Living and Traditional Home so it truly was a treat to be working with her! She is crazy talented and really knows how to make a room come to life in her photography. Watching her and her assistant Dan work to get it "just right" makes me realize just how critical every little element is in getting that perfect shot.
This is a shot I took while they were working to get the lighting just right. As you can see from this photo and how blurry it is, I'm much better leaving the photography to them!
Here's a quick peek at the final photographs Helen just sent over the other day…
We were so fortunate to have the gorgeous fall colors serve as our backdrop in these photos.
The lighting was also in our favor that day and lighting is everything when it comes to good photography. Helen had a partly sunny day to work with and was able to time the shots to take advantage of the perfect lighting condition. It was actually funny to watch. We'd set up the shot and then wait for a cloud to partially cover the sun at which point they'd have to move quickly and take the shot. If they were just a little bit off, we'd sit and wait for the next cloud to come. At one point, all three of us just sat staring out the window trying to guess how quickly the next cloud would make it over!
I'll share before and after's soon and get into more details about what we did in this space in a future post. I just wanted to get this sneak peek out to you. I'm so excited about this space and just could not wait to share!
