Behind the Book – Photo Shoot & More

Above you’ll see scattered crafts and supplies from Michaels and baking supplies from KitchenAid.

I know I was supposed to be on here yesterday with part II of my small business tips, but we had another few days of shooting this week for our book so I’ll get that post up next week.  You all left so many wonderful comments about my tips and I’m so glad that I can be helpful for any of you that are in small businesses.

In the meantime, since you all love my behind-the-scenes posts, I thought I’d share a peek of our photo shoot this week.  We shot how-to’s for crafting and baking instructions for the book this week and below is a tiny peek.  This book is so photo and instruction heavy and I can’t wait until it is in your hands next year.  We came up with some novel concepts while shooting yesterday and I know you’ll really enjoy them.  We are shooting again next week and then just one more day next month for the cover of the book {behind-the-scenes on that to follow – it will be fun!}  I’ve been very busy with finishing recipe/crafting instruction testing {we have hundreds of instructions in the book!}, finishing the chapters, and compiling my book design ideas.  You have no idea how big of a project this is.  It is a full time job and an 18 hour day job, at that!

Here is a small peek of this week’s fun…

Above picture – you’ll see scattered crafts and supplies from Michaels and baking supplies from KitchenAid for our baking and crafting tutorials…

Photographer Johnny Miller had a lot of equipment set up for our tutorials….

My little son doing a how-to for cookies.  He was a little shy at first as we usually bake together without a dozen people and lights/cameras surrounding him, but within a few minutes he loved working with Johnny on camera.  Afterwards, there was lots of flour on the floor and cookie-eating!

A sneak peek of a baking tutorial…

My boys getting comfy with Justin, the resident photography technician for the shoot.
