Mommy’s Little “Helper”

New cozies are headed to the shop this week!  I’m adding a few a day, so keep an eye out!  I gotta tell you, it’s really difficult for me to only post a few a day – I much prefer getting it all done at once.  The thing is, posting them bit by bit keeps your items at the top of search lists, and gives you a vehicle to keep your new items in potential customer’s minds.

While I was doing a “photo shoot” for my new items, my son Rian (3 1/2 years old) got curious and found his way into my shots.  He had some mysterious icing on his face and hands, so you know he got an earful of, “DON’T TOUCH ANYTHING!!!”  ;)  (I say this to him a lot.  A lot.)

He’s a cutie, right?  :)

You can probably tell that I do my photo shoots on a chair – an Ikea chair, to be exact.  It’s my sewing chair, but being white, makes a great surface for photos.  It reflects light and helps create a clean, modern look in my photos.  I’ve changed my photo style slightly over time and will probably continue to do so.  Right now, I like this look.

What tricks/tools/materials do you use for photo shoots?

haha your son is darling! and I do my shoots on a chair too:)

I should probably space out my listings but I don't have time-I have to do it all at once. Perhaps I should think more about this though. ho hum:)

Thanks! Have you used any of the renew or copy options yet? Takes some of the legwork/time out of listing. I hate doing it slowly, but I'm now into my slow season and need to follow as many tips as I can. And "they" say listing failure keeps you at/near the top of searches. This is my first time really spreading them out, we'll see if "they" are right!
