Romantic Country Photo Shoot

I was contacted awhile ago by Barbara Jacksier, the previous editor of Romantic Country magazine to see if I'd be interested in having a photo shoot done of my home...

Photo Shoot

Okay ladies....the cat has been let out of the proverbial bag so I can now safely spill the beans about something that I have known about for sometime now and held quiet:-). The fabulous Fifi O'Neill (editor of Romantic Country Magazine) is coming into my home town of Miami today to spend a few days with me, and I am so looking forward to meeting the gal who is a muse to so many who embrace the romantic lifestyle! She had contacted me awhile back requesting photos with the possibility of doing a photo shoot of my home. Of course I feel honored and extremely flattered to have been selected for a shoot, since she has such a keen and amazing eye. I have had a number of projects in the press over the years, but not my home itself.....so this will be an adventure no doubt to relish and enjoy.

Although we have been organizing, arranging and prepping for a couple of weeks now~I am SURE that we aren't ready! Today will be for setting up any further details, with a Christmas shoot scheduled for Monday (for next year publication) and then house shoot on Tuesday.

My husband and I will be getting a double dose of French chic~as Fifi's talented (and I am sure equally as sweet:-) sister Sylvie just came in from France and will be joining her. Dan Mayers and his assistant will be flying in from New York tomorrow, and I truly can't wait to pick up whatever photography tips I can pull from a master. I am keeping my finger's crossed that the weather will cooperate, as tropical Miami is known for it's balmy ocean breezes and sunny days in the winter. Fifi penned that she is looking forward to some hot Cuban food, so a run to Calle Oche may be in the cards. Have a safe drive across Alligator Alley sweet girls~the coffee is on and we eagerly await meeting you both in person!

Stay tuned for more later on......and have a wonderful and sunny day and week ahead~whatever mother nature brings your way! XO~ Janet
