a summerfied question for you

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?

Posted in bags, business.


  1. 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!

  2. 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~

  3. 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! 🙂

  4. def more summery and light! mission accomplished 🙂

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

  5. 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.

  6. 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. 🙂

  7. 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.

  8. 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

  9. 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. 🙂

  10. 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.

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

    Seasonal? Me? Ha. Yeah. Right. I’m not that organized 😉

  12. 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 🙂
