Today I’m sharing what it really looks like when photoshoot styling for a blog post. This photo was sent to me by my friend Melissa of Melissa Creates. Often, your table is no where near the place it should be. You drag it over to the closest window and pretend that your dining table is really situated in your fabulous, glowing dining room and not in the middle of your
Please forgive this grainy iPhone photo. Cameras do not like to shoot computer screens. But I can’t tell you how many of this photo I have saved to my camera library on my phone.

But guess what is just outside even her perfect shot… See the red shoes on top of the white dresser below the window? That is the beginning stages of a perfectly lovely shoe shot. I totally
Shhhh. Don’t tell anyone. I’m guessing that most other bloggers are guilty of this little switcheroo too. My shoots happen in the morning when I have the best light in my kitchen.
