Last week I was crazy busy and freaking out over the fall photo shoot(pictures to come) and now this week is more of the sameÂ - slamming last minute details together for Dallas market. Â I got to thinking about what we were doing 20 years ago this week and it was surprisingly pretty much the same ... albeit a different scale, but with the same intensity and same stress levels.
We did our first "photo shoot" in Mom and Dad's back pasture with Audrey modeling and Pat Mercer photographing.Â I'm sure I was being bossy and over-bearing telling Audrey how to pose and telling Pat how to snap the picture.Â Regardless we ended up with the following shots and used these as part of our first marketing campaign. Â We also gave an off-the-cuff name to our "brand" just in time to get our labels woven and sewn into our samples.
Reminisce with me as I take a look back at our initial efforts of photography and branding...
