Photoshoots and Facelifts

My shop is getting a facelift.

Several weeks ago I had the good fortune to have fashion blogger and photographer Jen Hsieh at my house, shooting a new crop of beautiful photos for my shop (see here). I'd been in need for a long time because, let's face it, amateur iPhone photos can only go so far!

I was so amazed with Jen's creativity and ability to bring my products to life. She made it seem easy (though of course it's not).

         Crochet Wrist Warmers in Fall Color

I learned a lot from her too, for example:

1. With the right tools and the right light, you can create an at-home studio anywhere.

2. White seamless makes everything betterSeriously. I mean how amazing do these photos look?

3. Prep for your shoot ahead and think about adding context to your photos with props. A prop can be anything you have in the house-- a book, flowers, confetti, balloons. There is no limit to creativity! Just have fun with it.

                            The master at work!

I can't wait to show you all the rest of the photos (soon!) and to debut my new products!
