A Kodak moment

On Friday, one of Darren's partners, Laura, asked if they could use our tree for a photo shoot. I, of course, thought that was an absurd idea--my tree is lovely,but my carpet is horribly stained and waiting to be ripped out, my walls are blank, ugly and in desperate need of a paint job. She must be kidding, but she insisted that this was just what they wanted. She was a little nicer and said they were looking for tall ceilings and a neutral background.
Come to find out, her husband, Joel, was actually looking for a location for work. He works for and they were shooting for the Christmas day picture that will appear there.
My little camera corner and then there is the professional gear.
The tree looks pretty. The kids computer table is pushed out of sight. This is Laura and her 2 girls.
The professionals at work.
Their real family.
The fireplace should be in the pic. I think.
My blank walls and neutral carpet.
Noah took these while I was out.
See the disgusting carpet stains?
I was mortified and a little excited at the same time.
Check out on Christmas day, you might see a little of my tree and maybe a little bit of the fireplace. Our friends will definitely be in the picture.
FYI, all I got out of this was a cool blog post. I'm not complaining. How many people get to see a behind the scenes photo shoot like this?

I just looked at Kodak and thought that was pretty cool. Your tree does look nice. I like the garland of balls that go around it.
