They say that an army runs on its stomach. That was certainly the case when we spent a few days in the photographic studio recently.
Last month the Living and Loving team shot our December cover. And, as you’ll see in our December issue (on sale from 18 November), it was quite the production – we shot three beautiful moms and their adorable babies in just one-and-a-half days. There was a small army at the shoot: excited moms and babies; proud dads; the photographer and his assistant; the Living and Loving editorial team; the stylist, hair and make-up artist; and a team from Comfort recording our every move. Needless to say, it was a busy studio.

One thing we know is that everything runs more smoothly when there’s delicious food available to keep the blood sugar levels stable and the thirst at bay. So we called on Howie Gourmet to provide us with catering. With his years of experience in the catering business, we knew from the start that Howie and his team would take care of us.
Ordinarily we wouldn’t really mention the food at a shoot, but this was quite special. From the freshly prepared crumpets and cream as we arrived on the first morning to the sumptuous sandwich buffet and the completely irresistible array of miniature desserts, a lot of us saw our good intentions fly out of the window as we tasted our way through the shoot.
Knowing that this was an important shoot for us, Howie and his team really went the extra mile with perfect presentation and an ever-cheerful team of staff. What can we say – it was service with a smile – and so much more. We’re already thinking about the next time we can call on Howie and his grocery-laden Harley.
