In celebration of the release, I made scones and tea for my family to celebrate, just like how we had shrimp and grits for the release of A New Adventure, A New Name.
The scones looked so pretty, and well, tea is always pretty, so I thought that a quick photo shoot of the food with the book would be a great way to promote the book for Etsy and Facebook.
And I think it turned out pretty well:
But what you don’t see is the uncropped version:
This is the top of my coffee table.
It is my favorite flat surface to photograph on in my entire house. The surface is this really nice stained wood, and it’s not super shiny so there aren’t big light reflection spots I have to work around. The light that comes through the window is super soft, and it’s pretty perfect for not having a “real” photo box set up.
But, I have three kids.
And they like to play on the coffee table.
And leave things up on said table.
So this momma has to work around it sometimes.
And this fits my life so perfectly now with summer vacation happening. I have work I have to do, but there are musical theatre workshop camps, swim lessons, business trips to Chicago, week away camps, family vacations, and just day to day life to work around.
But, we make it work.
It just takes a little more effort 🙂
PS – Dangle earring supplies have started arriving, with the last part coming tomorrow! Be on the lookout for more updates on when they’ll be available on Etsy ❤
