Photoshoot Friday, Springtime in the Winter edition

In November I had the privilege of shooting the pattern photos for Louet’s Spring 2014 collection. Mari of Stitchcraft Marketing flew up from North Carolina and acted as stylist and photo assistant. It was a particularly tricky shoot to wrangle around the weather and backgrounds. It was November in Boston but most of the trees were bare of leaves so we could pretend it was early early spring before the trees were budding. (At least I hope that’s how it looks.)

Photoshoot Friday, Charleston Tea edition

I always love when Thea pings to set up a photoshoot. She comes stocked with ideas for styling, props and location. Invariably we leave the prop bag in the car, but I love the energy she brings to a shoot. She’s so much fun to shoot with, and I think that comes through in the photos. I never have to ask her to laugh or smile, she’s always just ready.

We had a specific beachy theme in mind for this shoot, but the weather wasn’t cooperating in the slightest. We’d planned …

Photoshoot Friday, Frick Frick Beret edition

It seems fitting to me that on a weekend I’m spending with my girls that I should highlight a photoshoot from the last time we got together. When we were in Michigan in May, Flint Knits Pam had just finished a pattern for a super cute beret she’d made for JulieFrick. I love so much when my friends can be models because they’re so relaxed and it all looks so natural. Love that.

photoshoot friday, babycocktails edition

I love to plan shoots with Thea Colman, because when I get to her house she’s completely up for anything. So when I say, “there’s this great cemetery down the street I’d like to shoot” she doesn’t balk. She just says, SURE! And off we go.

We piled in the car with Stitchy (expert stylist, sweater  smoother and smile getter) and headed over midday last Saturday. I usually prefer to shoot early mornings or late afternoon, but we had …

Photoshoot Friday, the first of many (probably)

[flickr id="6118415852" thumbnail="medium" overlay="true" size="medium" group="" align="center"]
I’ve been hemming and hawing (and ultimately getting paralyzed) about how to share the photos I’ve taken for all the knitting pattern designers I’ve been working with. I don’t know why it hasn’t occurred to me that I can just make it a weekly feature. I blog really well in my head, I just haven’t had any time to sit and actually blog some of this stuff. I really need to get a huge backlog of work posted, so I’m starting this week. I present to …
