Particularly handmade products. This past weekend I photographed some great twirly handmade skirts that my January bride-to-be made for her girls. These shots were not only a part of their family session, but held a dual purpose for her to use as marketing in her own Etsy shop where she sells these skirts for little girls and big girls, too (adults—custom order.)
I especially understand the handmade item well because I worked in craft books for over seven years as an art director. Part of my vision for the future of my business is to continue to photograph product from the individual crafter to the manufacturers and sellers of that product and to the publishers who show the how-to of how to make it alll; I just personally really dig what handmade is and what handmade means.
