Self Published book, Photo shoot 1 is done!

And off we go! The first of 2 photo shoots for the self published book I an working on is done. Everything went incredibly well and I am so excited to get the photos from Carrie! She is a genius and Mandy, the model, was so easy to photograph and such and absolute pro.

We were able to get 7 pieces photographed, which means that we only have to shoot 5 more at the second shoot at the end of next month. The remaining pieces are almost done, just a collar left to knit for one of them. So, I am feeling very good about our schedule. (My deadline to have the books shipping by is October 1st)

Here are a few behind the scene shots from the shoot

This is what my clothing rack looked like before the shoot and I am super happy to say that it was completely empty by the end of the shoot!

And this is the prop table that I had set up, you never know when you need to add some color or silliness to a shot.

This is me asking Carrie ” How is the light, can we shoot this here?”

Ethan was a fantastic help and switched between light reflector holder and behind the scenes photographer, furniture mover, meter payer, and all around best guy!

This has been a such a busy week, I’m off to play catch up now!
