I came, I styled, I collapsed.  The photo shoot of my loft took place yesterday.  After a whirlwind decorate-my-ass off weekend, it was a delightful day and I cannot wait to see the photos!  I worked with Courtney Apple, who is so fantastic.  My sister, Megan, helped style the shoot and the three of us noshed on cupcakes and Prosecco while we worked.  Not a bad day, right?  Of course by the end of it I felt like I had run a marathon  and slightly regretted that last glass of sparkling wine.  (I needed it to get through the headshot portions of the shoot.  Sober Naomi = awkward, cheeky, deer-in-headlights photos)

I’d like to give 4 big thank yous to: My Mama, for arriving hours early to help me sweep, mop and dust my neglected areas; My Man, for hanging, drilling, spraying and encouraging me to get it done; my Sister, Meg, for being the best assisternt ever and always being my design sounding board; and Courtney for shooting the space with ease and being so very patient with me.

It’s back to the paying design jobs now.  While I catch up on work, I’d like you guys to enjoy some of Courtney’s photos

(for the Society Social shoot)

And speaking of Caitlin Wilson- I insist that every one of you go check out her website that launched yesterday.  Pure pillow and fabric bliss, I tell you!
