How does an imaginative, super-talented team of photographers, stylists, graphic designers, and set designers make a great catalog spread come to life? I asked members of the team to describe life behind the scenes on one of our most important photo shoots of the season. This spring, we debut the Rosie Sweet Furniture Collection with Posie Pop bedding for little girls. The photo shoot featuring this fantastic collection was a major undertaking; the results look effortless, but actually took days to complete. The shoot consisted of re-outfitting a bedroom (including laying a new floor), creating clouds from cotton batting, directing a dog (a pale pink poodle at that!), designing the illusion of a bright spring afternoon, and trying to stay toasty in a no-heat situation as the brisk fall season in Upstate New York set in.

Here are a few words from each to describe the shoot…
Beth: “Rose-colored glasses aside, this talented team loves a creative challenge.”
Andrea: “The poodle was definitely the best behaved.”
Walter: “Wait…did you just say you need me to ‘build & shoot a bedroom inside of a bedroom’?!?”
Maria: “I had my head in the clouds that day ;)”
Kim: “Clouds came floating into my life…not to carry rain, but to consume me.”
