BEHIND THE SCENES: Christmas lifestyle shoot

October 15, 2010

Remember back in August when I told you I was off to this gorgeous location house for Ideal Home’s Complete Guide to Christmas lifestyle shoot? Well, the magazine finally goes on sale today so I can finally show you what went on behind the scenes of these serene festive shots!

Our lovely models were arriving for day two of the shoot so we all started bright and early to decorate the house (Christmas trees at the ready!) so we could start shooting as soon as they arrived. Everything went really smoothly for the indoor shots (I’ll show you a few of those next week) then it was time for the fun part… THE SNOW!!!

William had a ball ‘helping’ us to create our white Christmas! Luckily his sister Hannah had a chance to get her own back…

Even Buzz the Wonderdog (kindly lent by the owners of our location house) got involved ready for his moment in the spotlight (cue much shaking of the dog biscuit tin!) What’s that people say about working with children and animals…?

Cute or what? Everyone worked incredibly hard to bring everything together so I owe a huge ‘thank you’ to my brilliant team – photographer Alun, photographer’s assistant Jo, styling assistant Lara and stylist Debbie. All together now… “cheese”!

Have a brilliant weekend. I’ll back next week with a few more sneaky peaks from the Complete Guide to Christmas!
