This is the third shoot in my personal project "Reinvention", highlighting women who reinvent themselves. Meet Sharon...former CPA and now one of the top interior designers in New England and owner of Sharon McCormick Design. In 2002 Sharon left accountancy to attend Paier College of Art where she won the Outstanding Achievement in Design Award. She's also been voted "Best of Hartford" for interior designer. And I was thrilled to learn after we met that she created my favorite room in the latest Junior League of Hartford show house!
According to Sharon, "When we moved to Connecticut, we bought a 1730's house in Durham's historic district. Every room needed to be totally redecorated. Every night I would take magazines into the bath tub with me and dream about what I could do with my house. Eventually it became an obsession. One day a BIG lightbulb went off! I could actually make a living doing what I loved! I went back to college for design because I had high aspirations, and felt that I needed a formal education so that I would be able to communicate with architects and builders. There were many challenges along the way, but I stuck it out and am so happy I did!"When I read Sharon's story, I knew I wanted to incorporate the bathtub into the images. A big thank you to Sharon for being open to getting naked in her bathtub with those magazines one more time! Also, a big thank you to Sharon's client who allowed us to use her beautiful home for the blue dining room shoot...one of Sharon's favorite rooms she designed.
