It’s been awhile since I had a cover shoot. This one was shot back in Sept. We shot 3 or 4 different foods for possibility’s. We had a food stylist and 2 art directors on set. The stylist made the biscuits and prepped them. I helped stack and arrange them, picked the color for the background. I also made a decision to keep every thing skewed to a warm color balance as that was the felling I wanted to convey, warmth and comfort. We shot it in the new house, in the dining area. It has a sky light and 3 large windows. Of course it was overcast and dreary that day, so I lit everything. I want to give a shout out of thanks to Deanne O’Connor and Kathrine Dayton, the art directors at Our State magazine. They have been awesome to work with and they keep giving me more and more assignments! I am so happy to be back shooting full time!
Here is the November 2009 Our State cover and an inside spread they made from one of the out takes!
