It is funny how a little bit of recognition always feels good regardless of what prompted it. This morning I opened my email to find a message that read as follows:
“You were hand-picked by one of our writers to be featured in an editorial ideabook on the homepage of Houzz.
See it here: Relocating? Here’s How to Make Moving In a Breeze“
I scratched my head and wondered why one of my design photos would accompany an article about relocating and then I saw what they did. They used that photo that I blogged about a few months back that is my most-popular photo in my portfolio showing a happy chocolate lab hanging out in the combination dog’s room/laundry room that I designed for a client a few years back. The happy dog in his happy home went well with the writer’s advice about handling pets when relocating. I guess free publicity is free publicity so I’ll take it!
And next time I go to photograph a completed design, I think I’ll incorporate more pets and kids in the photos. That seems to appeal! 😉
