Sheesh, I’d forgotten all about this until the other day — a couple of years ago, our apartment was used for a photo shoot for the quilting book Black & White and Pieced All Over by Kay M. Capps Cross. Here are some of the photos that made their way into the book!
Back when I worked in book publishing, I used our home for a couple of shoots. This one had nothing to do with me, so I welcomed the art director, stylist, and my photographer friend Al into our home and left for the day. Location shoots are incredibly intrusive, and I didn’t want to watch the team tear our house apart. Of course, these people are experts and manage to put every little thing back in its place before calling it a day.

Above and below, our living area. It’s amazing how strange [and sometimes cool] it is to see your stuff moved around by someone with good taste. Hmm, maybe that bench should be in the corner by the window?
Above and below, another view of the living area, this time from upstairs.
