And it's taken me this long to come down from the adrenaline and creative high of it all!
Meeting them, spending a day together and getting to be a small part of a fantastically beautiful experience was a complete dream-come-true.
It was a day I won't ever, ever forget.
The month leading up to their visit was an unrelenting marathon of sewing, painting and home improvement projects. So I was naturally very excited for Friday morning to finally arrive because that meant the work was over and the real fun could be had.
And what fun it was!
Because I was busy helping with the shoot, I took only one photo of these two at work and it turned out to be absolutely horrid, so I don't have any Fifi-and-Mark-at-work pics to share with you guys. But here's one from Fifi's blog, showing her and Mark at another house from a recent shoot. Pretend there are log walls behind them... :)
Fifi and Mark were both so warm, generous, familiar and easy to talk to. We chatted and laughed throughout the 9-hour shoot while they worked seamlessly together and I played gofer and otherwise scurried around the house in an attempt to be of some help. I also tried to absorb as much as I could from this talented duo in regards to lighting, composition, arranging flowers, and more. As corny as it sounds, those nine hours were a pure delight.
Mark and Fifi said it was their honor to come into my home, but I still say it was my honor to have them here. Thank you both! xoxo

P.S.--Since Fifi and Mark's visit required me to finally finish several long-undone projects around the house and have most rooms photo-ready, I'm going to finally put together a home tour in the next couple of weeks. If you're
