Behind the photo shoot…

 Even I really enjoyed doing the Vintage Tea photo shoot. I was a great chance to really flex some creative muscles.
Though I will tell you I received some strange looks form the neighbors hanging tea cups from the tree.
I’ve learned that good photos are all about light and location. I have  a little nook in my side yard that’s about 10 feet wide with  a great 50 year old Maple tree that was perfect.

 While I was prepping for my shoot, there was a lot of excitement.
 There was the standoff between our dog and the neighbors cat.
 And then through the entire shoot something kept hitting me on the head. I finally realized there was a squirrel in the tree and he was not happy is was under his house.
 He even came down for a look. 

 An my model was a trooper, even when I made her climb  a tree for some of the shots.
Doesn’t she look gorgeous?
And there were some pictures that I loved, but I just couldn’t use.

  1. I loved the tea cup photos. They almost looked 3D. But the animals are hilarious. We have a resident squirrel. He does things to get our attention as well. He had babies (guess he isn’t a he) last spring. We only saw them a few days. They would rol around and ply rough with each other. They are gone now be HE is still here. We think he actually chewed through the house and into the garage. Glad HIS babies didn’t stay around or we would have more holes in our house.
    The model is stunningly beautiful.

  2. Hi! Having some green/blueberry tea & blog reading here! 🙂 Great post! The squirrel was so cute.. I think they are territorial animals?? Your photoshoot turned out fabulous – love how you think outside of the box with creative ideas! 🙂

  4. SOOO great to meet you yesterday Jennifer! My teen/tween daughters were uber impressed when I had a chance to meet John Stamos at a Beach Boys concert last week as they were raised on Full House reruns. So when I told them I actually met “one of my FAV bloggers” and got no reaction I said “You know, like when I met Uncle Jesse?!!!” THEN they got it. 🙂
    Your talent and energy is inspiring.
    Be well,
