Hi ! Nicole here, I am Annette’s web manager, and friend, back in the fall, Annette invited me and a few other fabulous friends to come to her home and enjoy a spring-inspired paella party and photo shoot for Atlanta’s Magazine Home. Of course we were there to shoot a spread for the premiere issue of the magazine, but we were also there to enjoy the yummy food and great company. In between posing this way and that, we were able to feast on an incredible paella dish along with a cheese plate fit for a king and heavenly pots de creme. Suffice to say there wasn’t a hungry person in the house.
Even though the party was held in the late fall, the weather could not have been better. It was just cool enough to enjoy drinks by the fire, but warm enough still to sit with the windows open and take it all in. The ambiance was perfect and the company couldn’t have been better. We ate, we laughed, and we smiled for the camera. I have to say, I had no idea whatsoever how much work went into a magazine shoot. It is definitely not all fun and games (although we did have fun). There was an incredible amount of time spent on set-up and angles and color and candlelight and lighting. I was in awe of it all. It was a lot of hard work for the team, but lots of fun for the guests to experience. When do you every get to watch the pros at work and be a super model…um never. I loved it! Thanks for the memories Annette!
Stay tuned for the paella recipe later this week!
