Apartment Therapy Round 2

Thursday, March 27, 2014

We have some exciting news here at the Nest these days.  As many of you know, Apartment Therapy shot our house back in November and featured it as one of their house tours.  It was such great press and I was really impressed with how well the photographer captured the space.  Well, I guess you guys liked it so much (and specifically loved our breakfast nook) that AT continued to use the images in various surveys and blog posts. And most recently they came knocking on my door, this time to photograph the house for their fourth and newest book.  Lest you get over excited and start scouring Amazon, the book doesn't come out until 2015. Along with all the public spaces, bedrooms, and baths, they shot the new nursery (which I promise to show you more of soon).  It's hard to believe that Baby #2 will be almost 1 by the time it's featured in print.  They also got some great shots of Bryan playing in his room and some rather stiff shots of me posing outside our front door (I'm definitely more comfortable behind the camera!). Here are some behind-the-scenes photos of the photographer Melanie Acevedo doing her thing (and getting very cozy with my shoes).

And some pretty shots of some of the florals that stylist Kevin Hertzog left behind (the other perk being fully ironed bed linens).

Of course, for me the biggest part of the shoot was meeting the founder and CEO of Apartment Therapy Maxwell Ryan.  Maxwell is a hot shot in the shelter blog world and I had no idea he was actually coming to the shoot so I felt a bit like a giddy schoolgirl when he arrived at the front door and introduced himself.  Here is the photo of me and Maxwell that Bryan photo-bombed.
Of course, everyone on the crew was exceptionally nice, working around Bryan's nap schedule and his toddler antics.  And it was great to talk to Maxwell a bit about how his business has evolved.  I'm sure I'll be posting more about the book as it gets closer to publication, so keep checking in.
