Brain farts - I have them all the time!
January 25, 2017 • Leave a Comment
I enjoy photographing homes. I know, kinda weird...but I like walking into homes - especially newly built homes - and finding the best angles and lighting to showcase the qualities and features everyone loves. Luckily for me, my husband builds homes and asks me to photograph them! I do get to photograph other homes too, but he's my favorite.
One area his company, New Leaf Construction, is currently building in is Providence Island in Queen's Harbor. It is literally an island, surrounded by marsh grass and other plant and animal life. Their first home is closing this Friday and I was able to squeeze in amidst the trade partners trying to finish up the details for the new homeowners. I love the amount of windows in this home and the beautiful light on this sunny, Florida day. The chandeliers twinkled and little beads of light washed over the walls when the light hit just right.
When I finished, I packed up, thanked everyone and headed out. Before I reached my car I realized I had locked my keys and phone inside the car in my other camera bag...the one I decided last minute I would not need! One of the busy trade partners stopped what he was doing and tried to unlock the door, but my Kia Soul was unforgiving. I borrowed a phone and called the hubs, who passed the buck to our daughter because he had a meeting. I decided to enjoy my wait time and went off to explore. An hour later, I'm driving my car to meet her for lunch at our favorite burger joint - Epic Burger! She made sure I had my keys before we went in...I'm sure it won't be the last time I'm reminded of this day.
The model for this neighborhood should be done in 4-6 weeks and I will get to photograph that one too! I had a hand in choosing the counter tops and other finishes so I'm looking forward to the finished product. I promise to keep my keys in a pocket...or take all the camera bags inside!
If you would like more information on Providence Island, please contact Susan Dunham with Keller Williams Realty Atlantic Partners. She would love to walk you through the model home, which is for sale, and share information on how you can enjoy these views everyday!
