extreme makeover: home ~ the family photographs & behind scenes

It was truly a pleasure to watch Tricia, William, and their three lovely daughters receive their new home built by ABC’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition – and such a beautiful home, too! Here’s an excellent walkthrough: Some of you have reached out to say that you’re disappointed to have missed the show (or you were watching the Grammys 😉 Fear not, you can watch it in its entirety at – here’s a direct link to the full episode. If you haven’t seen it, you should. It really is quite beautiful. For those who did watch, here are photographs of the family and some more behind-the-scenes images from working on the set (this time around it was only super cold & rainy, unlike last time when it was crazy freezing cold & rainy 😉 So, without further ado, I present The Creasey Family…

I just LOVE Tricia’s laugh here 🙂 🙂 🙂

A big thank you to our very own Kaitlin Rogers who headed down with me for the day of the shoot & got some really cute images of how I was shooting the so-so-adorable girls:

After the shoot, we stepped through the images to make selections for the various rooms in the house…

Then, met with more of the design team and the awesome design producers to get everything sorted out and edited – I uploaded several batches of images to Buckeye Color Lab so that they could turn them around immediately (and go on to donate all those prints). A few days later, I got some hilarious shots of Jewel and Ty blow-torching wood to create the gorgeous rustic frames that they used to showcase the photographs – was a really cute skit with the fire getting out of control and the fire marshall stepping in to save the day (but, alas, it didn’t make it through final edits 🙂

Volunteers were backing and framing pieces up until the very last minute in “Art World”.

Then it was on to hanging the pieces and getting all the furniture moved in fast!

The lovely finished rooms (ahhhh) …. and the super friendly Tracy & Alex in designer heaven: *Paris*.

Out to greet the cheering crowd, the media – and, of course, the family returning to their brand new home…

Love the extreme “home is done” huddle…

(from both angles)

Finally … such genuine joy as the family pulls up in their limo. You can see the full episode for the rest of the story! 🙂 Whew.

(And they do this every week, people.) ~~~~~~ …oh, and gotta love the credits…
