Most days, I’m in the shop decorating cherries and visiting with my amazing customers, but every once in a while I get to participate in a super fun photo shoot!

This most recent photo shoot was for a new local publication of The Scout Guide…a beautiful magazine that showcases Omaha companies.  The images in this magazine are a major reason why people LOVE to use it as a coffee table book for guests to enjoy.  It’s really more of a book than a magazine and it aims to highlight Omaha businesses in a way that allows readers to appreciate a side that may not be so obvious by our storefronts or advertisements.

I asked my sister, Jen, to come by and take some behind-the-scenes pictures of the photo shoot so I could share with all of you a sneak peek before the magazine hits the stands this June.  As an extreme hobbyist photographer, it’s so handy to have Jen around…and she loves me and is always happy to help me in a pinch.  Most of you have met her…she’s usually helping at the register during the holidays….she’s absolutely wonderful!

Meet Tammi Bishop, the editor of The Scout Guide in Omaha.  She’s very passionate about introducing Omaha’s businesses to her readers, so when she asked me to be a part of this year’s featured businesses I was honored.  Tammi has a keen eye for detail and she definitely knows what look she’s going for in her publication.  Throughout the entire photo shoot, she was suggesting certain angles and props, and was often adjusting elements to ensure that the final image selected for her magazine was perfect!

Meet Daniel Muller, the photographer for this photo shoot as well as ALL of the photos featured in The Scout Guide 2019.  His work is incredible!  Many of you may already be familiar with him as he’s a highly sought after local photographer.

His work is just as much science as it is art, which I can appreciate as a former scientist and a current artist…we got along just fine.  When he suggested that I wear white, I was so relieved.  Literally everything I own is either black, gray, or white…my closet pretty much matches the branding for The Cordial Cherry…no rainbow blouses for me.  I’m not a very colorful person when it comes to my wardrobe, so I’m very thankful he didn’t ask for chartreuse or heliotrope!

I love the dress I picked…while the sleeves are flowy and lacy, they’re short enough that they don’t get in the way of my work.  I was able to get right back to decorating after the photo shoot!  And, as Daniel suggested, the white will be a nice contrast to all the warm, dark shaded throughout my shop.

Ok...this shot is special...

Everyone says that I look just like grandma Sheldon...it's my favorite compliment...

My apron...not fancy at all, but perfect all the same.  I love the contrast of this rough and tumble apron with my dainty, lacy top...it's definitely The Cordial Cherry style.

This one was just silly....

Tammi and Daniel were amazing to work with and I really hope you’ll check out The Scout Guide when it’s released this June. I hope you’re as excited as I am for its release…I can’t wait to see the final selection for the magazine…I know it’s going to be beautiful!  We'll have lots of copies at The Cordial Cherry so be sure to ask for one!

Since we moved to Texas in August I have missed your shop so much! Your delicious chocolates are wonderful but talking to you was always my favorite part of coming in! You absolutely deserve all the wonderful recognition! I’m planning a trip up to Nebraska this summer and will be sure to drop in! And if you’re ever in the Houston area I’d be happy to show you some of my favorite town!😉
