No, we didn’t try to stiff one side of the family. We only had one set of benches for this shoot, so we worked some photo magic and took two photos of the benches on either side of the table, and combined them together in one perfect shot.

A beautiful vase, but that small rock just isn’t going to get enough water, is it? April Fool’s! This was another styling experiment that sounded great in theory, but didn’t turn out how we wanted on film. Take 2!

Wedding gone wrong? April Fools! We just captured an impromptu bride and groom in the background of this shot.
