As much as I love the black and white photos, and oh, I do love the black and white photos, I feel that my shop needs to be summerfied, lightened up. So I spent the day rephotographing and editing.

These are the winterfied pics. Love. Love. Lovelove.

There’s that stray colorful thumb that I REFUSE to fix. See it?

(notice Marcie’s beaded pull?)

I’m afraid to ask you. Because I REALLY don’t want to make more changes. Ugh.

But here goes.

Do the new pictures make you feel a little more summery and light?

If you have a shop, do you change your photos seasonally?
Thoughts? Opinions?


  • Are you afraid cuz you know the answer? I’m afraid to tell you that I like the last group, in fact I love them! (sorry, hehehe)! Love all of your new work too! Happy editing! I actually have a few bags I need to rework, ugh!

  • I like anything you do, your photography is always great, and the things you’re selling are so primo I get the quality no matter what the photo style~

  • I like the shots. I am very partial to your black and white shots and they highlight your beautiful bags wonderfully!

    Do I update seasonally! HA, I am still struggling to figure my damn camera out! πŸ™‚

  • def more summery and light! mission accomplished πŸ™‚

    and negatory on seasonal updates. I’m struggling to even update regularly right now. I need more hours in the day!

  • I love them lighter…I do agree they have a more Summery look. That said, I love the B and W…which looks fab always. Not much help am I…!? Go with your gut feeling.

  • Your photos are always fab. It is winter here, so my tastes may be reversed. Hehe. I love the way your bags pop against the B&W but I love them all. I have purse-lust. πŸ™‚

  • i like the second set of photos as they focus on the product and there’s less distraction from the texture and images of the black/white’s background.

  • Both look fabulous! The black and white background does feel more wintery and the last photos more summery!

    I have always been simple about my photos so I never change them. However I think is a great idea for handbags! ~Val

  • Yes, Val. I agree. I think that some items really don’t need to be changed – like jewelry. But apparel and accessories may.

    And thanks guys. The positive reinforcement tells me that crouching on the floor for hours wasn’t in vain. πŸ™‚

  • All your photos are always great! Now that I have my big girl camera I need to re-photograph all my jewelry…the pictures I currently have are not great at all.

  • While I love your winter photos, your summerified ones are awesome too….def light and airy πŸ™‚ So for that, mission accomplished!

    Seasonal? Me? Ha. Yeah. Right. I’m not that organized πŸ˜‰

  • I like them all, even the colorful thumb (which i did not see until you pointed it out)…

    Maybe put some color shots mixed with the black & white on the same page. That may please everyone.

    Wait, Wait. I think your blog does that already so I guess you have to decide πŸ™‚
