Knitting photos extravaganza: My second photo shoot with Irish Girlie and I Like Cake


Irish Girlie’s creativity continues to bloom and has resulted in some absolutely stunning designs that I can’t wait to get my knitting needles on.


She asked me to help her with the photos that accompany the patterns and I jumped at the chance.

Since it was a French theme, we were hoping for an out door cafe look. (Sadly a trip to Paris was not in the budget.)


Mother nature was not on our side and the Sunday morning we planned for the photos was cold with the first real rain of the season up here in Northern California. But I discovered a sweet corner in the cafe next to a huge window with amazing light.


So we bought some macarons and coffee and hot chocolate and went to town. I had so much fun standing on chairs and moving this way and that. Thayer is such a fabulous model with great style. All of her poses were so gorgeous.

I loved the neutral cafe au lait background in the booth and the marble table helped reflect some light.

After a good amount of time inside, the rain had stopped and we quickly moved outside for a few shots at the tables in front. It was also easier to get good images of Thayer standing and thus showing off the long circle scarf.


Thayer brought a few sweaters to show off the various colors of the yarn. Isn’t that sweater with the stars perfect with the long scarf?


Thanks ladies! You’re both so fabulous!
