A few days ago I had the wonderful experience of having a professional photographer take pictures of my handmade jewelry and accessories. Her name is Shauntelle, and her company is Sposto Photography.
Although I have been following her blog and her posts on her facebook page, I was not anticipating just how beautiful the photos of my work would turn out.

We did a little studio set up in her backyard
along with 3 dogs and chickens...

|That's a chicken.|
I honestly walked in thinking she would take photos for about 20 minutes, and be done - since she was doing me a huge favor.
But she made a list of all the types of photos she wanted to take, and spent a few hours on it. Even looking at photos on the back of her camera impressed me.
|Brand new earrings, I especially love my classic granny squares!|
I love creating jewelry - I love creating the color combinations and the design. I think I have an eye for that type of work - which you would think would translate to photographing this work. Alas, it does not.
Watching Shaunie work was great - not only because I knew I would be getting wonderful photos from the experience, but because I learned a lot about how to create the visual I wanted.

She also had the equipment to really show the details - which is, of course, as the person spending hours crocheting these little details - one of the most important things.
|One of my favorite photos - simple, clean, and beautiful|
She did such a good job showing every, loving stitch.
So if I haven't mentioned - go to her facebook page and click 'like' and visit her website. This is a shameless plug for Sposto Photography - because look at what she did for me. I am so amazed.
|Hey look! Those are my actual hands! Actually crocheting!|
