Lighthouse Holiday Photoshoot

Ah, the glamorous life of the retail entrepreneur; garbage taker-outer, packer, shipper, customer service gal, boss, ad executive, marketing guru, and sometimes you have to do your own photo shoot.


It is not always a pretty sight!  I am frequently down in the dirt or kneeling on rocks to try and get the picture to line up right. Really classy when it's me battling the wind, carrying a pile of pillows; most of the time dropping a few, and brushing off the sand or the weeds.  Frequently the shadows, or the lighting will just not cooperate.

Or there are too many people snooping around that want to see what you are doing...

We were trying to be prepared (ha ha ha) this holiday season,  and have our pillows here early for holiday promotions. Somehow the time line snuck up on us again and I found myself in the Mini Cooper driving up and down our coast last week to figure out how we could shoot some images that were actually usable for upcoming magazine ads.

Lots of bad pics taken - thought you all might enjoy anyway!  (the views were pretty cool though!)










Sometimes I just give up and enjoy the view.
