noTTafarm "Smiles Pretty" for Photo Shoot

Thursday morning at 6:30 while you all were still snoozing, we were up and at 'em. A professional photographer arrived in time to watch the sun rise over the new addition, and to begin a 6-hour photo shoot. The general contractor of our project, T. Hurt Construction, is entering the "Addition" category of the CoTY (Contractor of the Year) Awards of the NARI (National Association of the Remodeling Industry.) T. Hurt has a great track record, having received previous CoTY awards at the regional and national level. You can imagine we are quite pleased and excited that our home may garner industry attention - even though we already know it's a real winner. 
The photographer, Thomas Grady, set up in the east yard first. We were blessed with another sunny, warm (for November) day so the light was great for exterior shots.
We cleaned and staged the house, trying to make the best impression. Doesn't the great room look lovely?
Tom used all sorts of lights and filters along with his camera and tripod.
T. Hurt Construction's customer relations and marketing manager, Sara Lorenz, stayed at the house all day, helping Tom set up the shots. She is responsible for submitting the entry for our project and two others in different categories. She has a lot of work to do in the next few weeks!
After completing the bulk of the shoot at around 1PM, Tom returned to see the sunset, and take evening shots of the house. It was a perfect night for photography!
We had just about every interior light switched on to capture the new addition aglow. It will be interesting to see how the photos turn out. I have every confidence that seeing them will make us appreciate our home even more.
Stay Tuned for Our Next Adventure!
