Years ago, when we were working on a vacation condo project, my sister (and photographer) Jemimah taught me this fun little trick. When photographing a large black hole television, it will make the photo more interesting if there is something nifty on said black hole television. Black and White movies work well in more serious rooms and old cartoons are fun if you are shooting a playroom.
I decided that nothing would look better for Hank’s first photo shoot than an episode of Gilmore Girls. The colors, the feel, the look of the show…they fit in perfectly with our home and decor.
I mean, Lauren Graham’s lipstick is the same color as my curtains. Could it be anymore perfect?
In other news, my dining room chair idea flopped. So it is back to the drawing board for the end chairs (these are still under serious consideration.) But I am not fretting. I am on vacation after all.
