The HGTV Shoot

Jeanine Hays

I am writing you from my sofa, where I’ve been spending a lot of time the past few days healing from a herniated disc in my neck.  While right now I’m not feeling at the top of my game, I thought I would share with you some photos from this past weekend.

Over the weekend I orchestrated a shoot for an HGTV.com article that I’m writing (you’ll see the completed shoot this Fall).  Above is a photo of my styling bag full of goodies to make this shoot go smoothly.

One of the most interesting things that I’ve discovered in starting AphroChic is that I LOVE styling.  Especially styling with my sister, Angela Belt, who is such a talented designer.  When the two of us get together it’s so much fun, working through our varying ideas and coming together to create something original and unique.

Like many of the AphroChic shoots that we do, whether for the book or other special projects, it’s all about family.  My husband works out the logistics, my sister and I style, and my brother-in-law, Leon Belt did the photography this time (he is also the videographer for the AphroChic Book).  It’s an absolute joy to be able to work with each other, supporting one another’s talent and abilities to develop a project that everyone can be proud of.

I can’t wait for you to see how the final shoot turned out, and to reveal exactly what it was we were working on, but you’ll have to be patient for a few more months.  I hope that all of you did something a little creative this weekend, and did it with the people you love.  Not to be too cliche, but it really does make whatever you’re working on that much sweeter.
