Fairbanks House Photo Shoot

The last couple of weeks have been pretty interesting at the inn because we've had both a photo shoot and a video shoot so that we can share some updated images of the property with our guests.  Some of the images on our website were shot in 1994.  Since the house has looked pretty much the same since 1885, many of the views haven't changed.  But the landscape, the decor and the amenities have all been continuously upgraded so we'd like our website to reflect our current offerings.  That's all well and good but photographing and videoing 12 rooms, the public areas, pool and grounds is exhausting - and I wasn't even holding a camera.  Lighting has to be just right, furniture has to be moved so as not to block the shot, the pesky August weeds have to come out of the garden, new gardens have to be coaxed along in the heat, all while running an inn.  But then the professionals take over such as the most excellent Dave Hensley (pictured)  who made things very easy for us and got just what we wanted.  Thanks, Dave.  We're anticipating our photos just like newlyweds awaiting their wedding photos.  I'm sure that they'll be great.  In the meantime, I'm ready to get back to walking and blogging.
