Several weeks ago I received an email from QC Exclusive magazine. They were interested in featuring my business in an upcoming issue and wondered what projects I was currently working on that they might be able to include.
Excited about the opportunity, I began running through my mental Rolodex of potential projects and remembered that I'd recently completed a fun One Day Design Plus project that had yet to be photographed.
After reaching out to the client, we got to work pulling together a few extra touches and scheduled the shoot for just a few days later. You'd never believe how much work goes on behind the scenes to pull off a photo shoot.
It looks all glamorous in a magazine, but it's mostly ironing, moving heavy stuff and lots of sweating involved.
Honestly, sometimes there's even some stealing from your own home. : )
(Hey, sometimes you've gotta do what you've gotta do.)
A little preliminary work on the day before the shoot and a return visit several hours before the photographer was set to arrive, and we were ready.
It was an exhausting day, but it came together quite nicely.
I'm included in the Folio (Foundations) segment of the March/April 2016 issue. It took me a while to hunt it down but when I finally did, I was extremely pleased with the outcome.
They ended up incorporating a few photos from some recent projects as well. If you're local, be sure to pick up copy at the locations listed HERE.
If you're not, you can read the feature and the entire issue HERE.
I'm humbled and honored to have been included. These past four years are still hard for me to comprehend. Who would've thought when I hit that "publish" button on January 1, 2012 to post my first blog, we'd be here four years later. Wow! Pinch me.
