photo shoot details!


One of the items on our blogging 'bucket list' is to take better interior shots of rooms.  My son, the artist, helped us tweak some of the photos from Bethany's master bedroom re-do, and I hate to let them go to waste, since they're so much better than what we posted.  Maybe we should hang it up and hire out.  

Here are some shots Michael selected and improved upon for us. We have a Mac and were just using iPhoto to edit.  I think I need Adobe Photo shop STAT.












And we're not foolin' anyone here either, Michael and his girlfriend, Lauren, took most of these photos.  But, we surely had a blast doing this challenge and can't thank Linda enough for organizing it. We have made wonderful new blogging friends as a result, and are looking forward to the next one!

  1. nancy and bethany: Must admit I've been lurking here all six weeks of the challenge (shame on me!) I am a massive fan of color and pattern all over the house. But in the bedroom, I prefer calm. Your take on calm has spots of color I adore and relies on a lot of texture (the rug, the lamp, the throw) I really like that. And these pictures are amazing. This is a big inspiration for my future master bedroom:) Thanks for everything. I am so glad I was introduced to your blog. :)

  5. It's just a gorgeous on the second look! I'm loving the little details - those earrings are so pretty. Some photo shop technology and a tutorial, are on my to-do list, too.

  7. Those shots are fabulous. I wish I had your son around here! MC and I are working with a Kodak (easy share)12 megapixels. We've had it for years. We apologize for the pictures of our Bucket List House...they are pathetic! Maybe someday we will get a new camera. I could always "accidentally" drop it in the tub!!

  9. Ok, these pictures are fabulous, but the sweet canine human steals the show! You know how much I love animals and hope to find another darling as soon as I get over losing my Lady. I had decided on a dog, but just felt guilty, so I will wait a little longer. I need to get to the point that I don't compare.
    Your bedroom is just perfect. I know that you are SO happy with it.
    Happy Thursday.

  14. I liked the pictures the first time around but these are wonderful. I must admit, I fall short on my pictures and I would love to learn how to take better ones, but I just don't have time to devote to it. Too many irons in the fire right now. But Michael and Lauren do wonderful work!

  16. It's hard to take a bad photo when the canvas is so great. Love the finished room. These new photos are great and you ladies did such a wonderful job on the makeover! PS--dying over that story of the cable knit throw...knowing you got such a steal makes me want it even more! (but you're right, it was meant to be)
