Default are you??

Are you your own model? I'm getting so sick and tired of wasting my time, money & energy creating new things to send to models, to get crappy pics in return. (not all of them are crappy, some are really good, but I'm tired of guessing which ones are gonna be good) I can't do it anymore at the moment, who knows later on.. never say never right ..I have girls that are willing to help me out but with so much picture theft I'm not sure I can put them thru that.. I actually took down a whole bunch of my daughters pics because the thought of my baby's pictures being in someone else's computer irritates me.. I love selling to children but I think I want to market adults now.

so if you don't mind me asking are you your own model? I think I want to be the face of my boutique. I did some research and I think it'll be good. My problem is that I'm a plus size gal and not sure how that would work on etsy. what's your opinion ladies please help me figure this out. thank you all so much.

I have modeled some of my stuff before and I am plus size. I think it's a great idea. I know there was a recent thread about this as well and a few girls posted that they would interested in modeling items. I think it's nice to have a variety of models and not just the typical cookie cutter model.

thank you.. I believe it was my thread about the plus size models.. I'm working on my courage and what items to make... being that we are all crafters I'm a little intimidated that they are gonna receive an item and say wtc..lol..

Thank you!

I have mostly modeled headbands, feather extensions, earrings, rings, mostly hair accessories or jewelry.

I'm not selling online at the moment, mostly doing shows right now so I don't have any photos online.

If you have a tripod and a timer on your camera it makes it much easier.

I think that's great. I always think that "non models" sometimes make better models than "models." Maybe you could find a good photographer in your area that needs some practice with posing, lighting, etc that could do your photos in exchange? Good luck in either case.
