It's been a long and lazy Winter. Here in Kentucky the winter was fairly mild, with just a few short bouts of snow and ice. That has been a good thing overall but I think it gave me Spring Fever too early! Since halfway through February I have been all set for Winter to be over. So it's no surprise that when the first day warmer than 60 degrees rolled around I grabbed a couple of my hats, packed my grumpy photographer into the car, and headed out for our first photo shoot of the 2016 season.
Hat 1: The "Woodland Witch" Hat
We decided to photograph two hats in a row under one of our favorite trees at a local park. I was particularly excited about the first hat that we took photos of because it was a colorway that I have only had the chance to make once before and I have decided to name the colorway "Woodland Witch".
When I received the order for this hat the customer included a note that he wanted me to make the hat extra-special because "it is for a girl." I did add bunches of extra magic, so maybe that's why when I posted a few photos of the hat on my Facebook page she saw the photos and posted how much she loved her hat! She put it on and even posted a picture of herself wearing it. I hope all my hats have such happy stories! (Click here to see the Facebook post and her reaction.)
Hat 2: "Classic Witch" Hat
The second hat that we took photos of was a classic witch hat that I had left over from Halloween. I particularly loved how the curve of this hat came out. When we looked through our photos later that day it was a pleasant surprise to see how the arc of the hat matched the arc of the tree I was standing under.
While it was fun to take these photos and get them all ready to put up online it has only made me even more impatient for springtime. As soon as things warm up again I will definitely be outside taking photos of all the hats I have been working on and waiting to show off.
Come on sunshine! I am so ready!
