Hooded Scarf photo shoot


As previously mentioned, Sunday was the big shoot for the Hooded Scarf pattern. The weather was perfect for the mood I wanted the shoot to have. The natural lighting wasn't too harsh and not too dark. It didn't rain. At least not until the end, and that was only a light drizzle.

Before I share pics from the shoot, let me introduce you to the crew...

Pierre-olivier Briglio was the photographer. He totally caught the vision I wanted for the pattern. If we didn't have to leave by a certain time, he would have shot all day. He was very professional, yet approachable with other ideas. I really enjoyed working with him! Here is the link to his website.

Sellecca was the makeup artist. I told her I wanted a natural look and she nailed it! Her makeup was flawless.

This is Carmel. Carmel and I go way back. I've known her since she was 7. I grew up spending my summer weekends with her and her family at the beach. She was a natural in front of the camera.

This is Christi. She is a friend of my sister's and she's as sweet as they come. She was a total trooper, because it was pretty cold out there and she's just a little drink of water. We had her in a little dress with boots and she was trying so hard to not look cold.




There are a few more pics from the shoot on my flickr page (link).

We did the shoot at my sisters house, which has the charm of a doll house on a farm. I told her to never move, because I will need her house for future shoots.
Then there is my sister. I can't thank her enough for all that she did during the shoot. Not only did she provide the house, she's also my coordinator that linked everyone together that were involved with this shoot. She's awesomeness!

(She's probably going to hate this pic, but I love it. She didn't want me to take her picture, but being a typical big sister, I didn't listen.)

So back to working on the pattern, and putting it all together.

Cheers,

Jamie

This is a really great session! My favorite is Carmel's scarf. I am digging the texture and button on the scarf and I love the red barn background!

Thanks Jenny for the offer on testing the pattern. I have already had it tested, so I'm all good in that department. However, for future patterns, I will add you to my pattern testers list.

Jots - The pattern goes to the printers next week. I will probably list it in my fabric shop for presale next week. Thanks for letting me know you like it!
