I am delighted to be featured in the latest issue of Romantic Homes magazine! The chief editor, Jacqueline deMontravel is a lovely person and a joy to work with. She has been kind enough to feature my work in three different publications. Romantic Homes has quite a mix of vintage, feminine, and modern touches.
This issue is available in stores through March. So far I have seen it at Barnes & Noble, Target, Walmart, and select grocery stores. You can also purchase it through their website here.
I knew this particular issue had a French theme, so Mum and I got to work right away scheming up ideas for the photos you see above. The location is at a local French bistro in Durham, North Carolina called Vin Rouge. Mum scouted out their beautiful courtyard when she was in the area. It was the perfect spot for the set-up! I wanted the table setting to look as if it could actually be in France. This styling was a little more traditional and vintage than I am used to working with, but it was fun to step outside of my comfort zone and try something new.
I have to tell you... one of the greatest joys of photo styling is eating the food after your hard work! :)
As promised in my previous post, I will now announce the winner of the Artful Blogging magazine giveaway. The winner is.... *drumroll*
