After an exhaustive search, one of the Moms are Nuts authors, Mary Laura Philpott, was finally able to find nut models she felt sufficiently qualified for our cover’s photo shoot. Not only was the search difficult due to the inherent diva nature of Nutter Butters (don’t even get us started on macadamias, we ultimately had to forego them entirely) but Mary Laura also had a diverse and specific group in mind. As you can see below, it was important to us that we represent all types of mothers…
Even after the perfect models were found, bloopers were bound to happen during the shoot. We’re pretty sure we’re going to be dropped by our insurance for this mishap, captured on film.
Trying to round up the models and get them to focus was sometimes almost impossible. We finally had to promise them a quarter slice of a cucumber to get back to work. After the cucumber lunch break, they complained they were too full and the shoot was delayed an additional hour.
Working with older models can be the most difficult of all.
