Behind-The-Scenes: A Photo Shoot at Pickering House Inn

We are hard at work creating our full website and are looking forward to offering online reservations soon! We’re excited to introduce Pickering House Inn and The Barn at Pickering House to the world, but we’ve got an interesting dilemma – how do we show how the Inn and Barn will look when we are still in the midst of renovating?

We have challenged our photographer to take shots that communicate the Pickering House feel in spaces that are not yet finished. Furthermore, we’ve asked her to do it while dodging a building full of carpenters, plumbers, floor installers, painters, tilers and more!

Photographer Emilie Sommer spent an overcast weekday with us capturing the Pickering House spirit. Here is a behind-the-scenes glimpse of her shoot.
