a little christmas story…
Posted in amsterdam, christmas ideas, recent work December 10th, 2008 by piablog

I had such a ball working on this story, can you tell? and I just adore working with Yvette and her delicious food, styling her food stories is just too much fun!! I will fill you in on all the juicy details tomorrow (even with a few behind the scenes photos and of course a description of what Yvette and i wanted to create for the shoot and how we did it). And perhaps you are wondering who these people are, and what they are all doing enjoying christmas together in this incredible Amsterdam penthouse! For my Dutch readers, you may already guess that the man in focus is a Dutch actor and TV personality, who happens to be a very dear friend of my dear friend Yvette’s… but that’s all I will say for now! ร  demain



magazine: maria
food and production: yvette van boven
photographer: jeroen van der spek

    I love it! You can see you really had fun working on it. I wish I had a home like that! I recognized Roeland indeed. He also did a great travelling program. You should ask him if he’s been in Australia!

    miranda – i’m so pleased you like it! yes it is a rather beautiful home, a fun place to play in that is for sure! I’m pretty sure Roeland hasn’t been to Australia but I will ask next time I see him.

    Yoli – I hope you managed to get some sleep. i had a rather restless night myself. i will post some more pics very soon!

    Stacy – thank you for your beautiful comment, I’m really glad you like it.

    Heidi – thank you!

    Sofia – merci beaucoup! Me too, that is my favourite image out of all of them. Did you notice the moon shaped cookie on the saucer of the top cup of coffee? I wanted to create a relaxed shot of the cookies so i took one out of my arrangement on the cakestand and had a bite out of it and that was the shape, I really liked it.
