My Lavish experience started on Friday when I attended Behind The Scenes With Lifestyle Photo Stylist/Producer, Annette Joseph sponsored by Room and Board. The session started with a guided tour of the Room and Board showroom with Annette and Julie Dewald (Store Manager), followed by a mock photo shoot, and a casual chat with Annette and other guests.

Here are a few snaps from the session and valuable styling tips for your next shoot. Starting with the scene before the styling process began…

 …and here is the after photo. I was too busy sending this photo update via twitter that I forgot to take a photo with my real camera. I think you get the idea.

 What are your favorite styling tips? Please share in the comments below.

    Sounds like you had a great time! Great tips, it always amazing me what I see in a photograph that wasn't as visible in person, it's a great tool!

    I appreciate this post – since I have been blogging (2 & 1/2 months) the photography is a whole new challenge for me. You think you have a great room and a great photo of it and then you pull it up on the computer and you see holes and flaws. I am finally understanding the difference between decorating and styling for a photo and how things need to be tweaked. Thank you for sharing this information! I am going to try ruffling the sheets today when I go and shoot a master bedroom!

    Subtract, step back, and subtract again. If I have learned anything styling interiors for photoshoots, its that that generally – a the final shot doesn't appear exactly as the person who owns the space lives in it. Sure, the little knick knacks make our spaces…ours, but that doesn't mean it makes for a great shot. Choose the things that are intriguing, interesting, and pieces that will make the photo. You want people to be immediately drawn to the aesthetic of a picture in total, rather than the 40 little items in the picture.

  • Hi Erika,
    We met at Lavish where you were kind enough to give me some advice for my new blog which I hope to have up and running by the end of January.

    I have enjoyed several of your posts and look forward to reading more! Hope you don't mind if I have a few beginner blogging questions along the way.

    Happy Holidays!
