Default I need honest opinions!!!...

Ok, I am not a great picture taker....I need opinions on some I have taken to make people flyers- I know the headband is not the best but it is my first attempt at making an embroidered one (or anyone for that matter) but how are the pics? any advice will be greatly accepted as I don't want to embarrass myself...haha If I need to get someone else to do it- Please tell me..

I think everything looks good. On the pictures, they look really clear but the white background you use kind of covers up some of the beauty of your work (JMO).

The third picture is a blanket and it is very hard to tell....but of course it is sold and that is the only picture I have....Just my luck I will get a pic of Chloe wearing the dress- Thanks!

Should I leave off the white frame?

Maybe just not feather it as much.

You're not a bad picture taker! Just keep practising and remember that natural light is your friend!

A really great tip for taking pics is that when you're taking them, leave plenty of space around the objects so that you can crop them appropriately later. It's much harder to crop in-frame and you won't have any options for replacing cut-off edges of the items if the picture is taken that way.

I totally agree about the frames though - it's more pleasing to the eye when a person can see something in its entirety instead of having to mentally 'fill-in' what's missing.

Your embroidery looks great! Good luck with your fliers.

I don't like frames at all. The pic of the shirts without the frame is much better. That first pic of the dress is so cute. Is it a matching dress for dolly and daughter? I make pillowcase dresses and I get asked ALL the time for matching dolly dresses but I can't deal with it so I don't do it. If you have that market than YOU GO GIRL!!!

Thanks so much!! I really need all the pointers I can get. When it stops raining I will take Chloe outside and get some pics of her wearing the dresses- I am going to take her to a photo shoot with some other models(friends) but I have to get these done this weekend, so I can not wait! But I can always make more fliers later...hehe

It is a matching dress for doll and daughter- I have been asked to make so many of these... I even had to make a mom skirt, 2 daughters and their dolls a dress!! and the matching totes are so cute with them too! They are selling really well
