The Story Behind A Collection Part II

I thought I would wrap up this fantastic week with some behind-the-scenes photos from our photo shoot.  While it all came together beautifully, there is a lot of hard work that goes on in the background to bring a shoot together.  Over two days, with our photographer, Melanie Acevedo, her fantastic crew, our models and a team of stylists, we worked to shoot product shots of the new collection.  They were two of the longest days of my life, but definitely worth it.

Thank goodness my dad let me borrow his SUV.  We had it packed full of props.

After a long, long day, the whole crew sat down to some Jamaican jerk chicken.  A perfect ending!

Have a fantastic weekend everyone.  I will be back next week with more news on the shop, and our holiday gift guide just for you!

And if you have a moment this weekend, check out my latest post on HGTV Design Happens.  It’s all about Suzanis.

Happy Weekend!
