Pictures Needed! Patterns to Trade!!

I've got a bunch of hats and sets that are listed with just my icky snapshot photos and several more that are just about ready to go.  I need to get quality photographs of little ones wearing these items asap, so I thought I should open it up to any of you that might be interested.

So here's the deal:

1 -- You work up a pattern and get a super-awesome photograph of the item on your little one.  Send it to me.  I'll share all the photos on Facebook.

2 -- If I use your photo for an Etsy listing, I'll send you two patterns of your choice.

Photographers, you are welcome to include your logo, and I'll of course post a photography credit/referral with the listing as well.

Thanks!!

I would love to help out! I am not a professional photographer but will do my best! I love makeing newborn stuff (that is what I have in my etsy shop you can see my photos there-www.etsy.com/shop/MySweetPotato3) But if you want the item on a child I have a 18 month old girl, 3 & 5 year old boys!

I would love too. Although it would have to be easy yarn to get a hold of. I don't have a lot of luck with Caron's spa or country yarn. My daughter is 4 and easier to take pics of. :)

I'm due to give birth at the end of October. I would be more than happy to try out some newborn patterns on him when he is born. We have a small photo studio in our home, so I could easily get some pics of him! Let me know if you still need photos then!

Do we have to bu a pattern first?
I have a one month old and would love to crochet one of your patterns

I am interested! Please let me know if you're in need. summerwyersphoto@yahoo.com (facebook.com/summerwportraitdesign)

@Amanda - you can work up the free pattern here on the blog or any of the patterns on facebook to get started. :)

@Summer - most definitely!

@all of you :) -- use patterns you already have to earn more. You don't have to use the same yarn I did, nor the same colors. Part of the goal is to get some variety up there.

I would love to do this as well, I make hats and crocheted props for a photographer so I am sure that she would be willing to try some new ideas on her littlest clients :) e-mail me if you would like me to help out @ junemomma2010@hotmail.com

I'll work some of the patterns I have of yours and take photos. Me and my daughter do free newborn sessions and will get some photos of them. Will take me a few days but I'll see what I can do.

Hi Bonnie
Glad you could use the photo of the baby in the pink tassel hat. You had mentioned one time about the photo in exchange for patterns. E-mail me if that still is good.
Take care Nancy

I'm a professional photographer and shoot for several companies and a couple of backdrop and prop companies as well. I've purchased several of your patterns and have been crocheting for over 35 years. How would you like me to submit the photos? swampsnk@aol.com
