 Chores, laundry, shower, reading and napping.

Around 1:45 we had visitors who were going to do a photo shoot in the barns.

 They flew in from New York last night...a photographer, his assistant (significant other) 
and Daniel Bamdad...a choreographer/model who recently moved to the big apple after a two year stint in Paris.  He is from Germany.

(I grabbed this from a blog...he is now 22)
"Agents from the fashion industry say about the 21-year-old that he is currently among the “hottest male models in the world”. Discovered a year ago at the farmer’s market, the hamburger adorned with conspicuous tattoos already next to the African supermodel Alek Wek on the cover of British fashion magazine “iD” and was booked for a campaign, including the designer Philipp Plein."

 Mrs. M. kept us company by the fire.

 After they grabbed some lunch they started setting up in the indoor.

 Except for this photo, the light was not the greatest.

 Eventually they went to the horse barn.
 Lee took pictures all over the place.

 They ended the day with Berlin and Abbe and I can't wait to have you see some of the amazing shots they got before they left at 6:30.

 The girls were very happy to get tucked in.
Now for the Oscars.
Night all.

  6. WOW this is exciting your barn is famous now. I am so excited I can only imagine how you feel. YEAH Hug B

  7. Fun! I love to observe the creative process of photographers, artists, writers. . .

  8. Well, that's the kind of thing to chase away those boring February blues - I'd love to see the photos they took! They had good taste in choosing your beautiful farm. You do have a lot less snow that we have - the coast really got hammered with that big storm. I hope we are heading towards Spring at last.

  9. What a fun day! How did they come to choose/find your wonderful barn?

  10. How fun is that!? Were they shooting for a magazine layout or something about your farm?? Can't wait to see your pics. :)
    p.s. I don't like all that ink. :(

  11. How is it that you know models and they end up in your barn? I think you know everyone!!

  12. My niece in Canada here owns a farm also.

    She teaches riding and all. She herself wins riding.

    She went last week to the tornmanet and her daughter Cass did well got champion.

    So I have pictures of her also.

    Horses are magnificent and so smart.

    Your student is a very gifted artist as well. I enjoyed her work.
