Remodeling Magazine Photo Shoot - Jason Millstein

Me getting ready to take a picture of Jason
Today was a first for me.  I was photographed for the April cover of
Remodeling Magazine.  A trade magazine focusing on the world of remodeling. 
Guess that is a little obvious. I was excited to meet photographer Jason Millstein
of Illume Photography  located in Scottsdale, AZ.  He is a super nice guy and told me
about many of the famous people he has taken photos of.  However, I had to
ask him about his "Who's Who's" list, he really wasn't a bragger.
I felt rather excited to be included in his subject list.

We started at 11:00 am this morning.  He hauled in all kinds of lights, stands, lens
meters, and stuff.  There is a ton of set up that goes into what appears to be a simple
photo. He took photos and I smiled until 2:00 pm.  Jason told me the magazine
wanted a shot of me looking happy but not too happy! Does that
translate to professionally serious, but pleasant? I don't really know but,
I think that it is kind of funny actually.

The photo pairs with an article focusing on bringing value to a design/ remodel
project for a client without compromising the finished product.
Something I think I am pretty good at.

The first shots were in the kitchen being featured in the article with the last shots
outside sitting in a big leather chair! The picture below is from
my vantage point in the big chair, being told not to move or squint!

Jason shooting me as I took a pic of him!
I am not sure which picture will be chosen for the cover, but Jason did a great job of
making me feel comfortable and he did promise to make me look younger and
less tired! I can now officially check modeling off my bucket list.  It's harder than it looks.
  Thanks Jason, your my new favorite!

Prescott Woman Magazine April Edition

Prescott Woman Magazine has turned
out to be Board by Board's new best friend!
This publication has been so supportive of our
work here in Prescott and in the upcoming April 
edition they are actually featuring an article
on Robert and I.  I will post a link as soon
as I have one. 

While I am on the topic of press coverage, we are
also going to get some national press in the month of
April!  Remodeling Magazine will feature a project
of ours as well as an article on how to bring
value to client's projects in our cost conscious
economy.  I had tons of ideas to share with
Editor Nina Patel and it will
be exciting to see what is in the issue. 

Check back and I will have a link to both. 

Hope you enjoyed our spring snow storm
here in Prescott!
