Professionally Photograph a Kitchen

While studying interior design at Drexel University, I spent hours pouring over the glossy images of Architectural Digest, Veranda, and Traditional Home to name a few and I wondered how on earth designers made those rooms look polished, yet inviting. Fast forward almost 20 years and I now have a personal understanding of what goes on behind the scenes of these photo shoots - and I want to share my secrets with you.
