In case anyone is wondering, photography is a huge part of running our company Autumn Creative LLC, but I’m not really for hire and I only shoot things that I WANT to shoot. Jackie Moon happens to be my girlfriend’s (Mary) best friend, but she doesn’t get special treatment because of that. She gets special treatment because she is dedicated to her pursuit of becoming independently wealthy and she has AWESOME style and is a brilliant designer! It obviously shows through in her crochet patterns!
Just like the seasons, fashion changes constantly and I got the opportunity to shoot Jackie’s summer line of crochet patterns. This time around I was lucky enough to have a second photographer shooting along with me (Jeff Lintz), and it proved to be a great experience as he captured some phenomenal shots from angles that I wouldn’t have been able to get to! If you can shoot with a second photographer, do it! You’ve got nothing to lose!
This was the third shoot for Made With Love By Jackie Moon and it’s obvious that Jackie is becoming a seasoned veteran when it comes to preparation. She had her clothing picked out ahead of time which made the photo shoot VERY efficient! The ladies were beautiful as always and they were working the camera like runway models. Mary seemed uncharacteristically comfortable posing (as you can see in the image on the right), she’s a true undercover top model!
Originally, I planned on shooting at the same place we did the last two photo shoots, but it turns out that the tree canopy blocked out too much light. So much that we would have had to shoot at ISO 600 – 800 just to keep our shutters at 1/125th with the aperture wide open. Yikes! Good thing I scouted the shoot location out beforehand. We ended up heading over to the Morton Arboretum and found a nice shady tree with some tall grass that provided a great backdrop for our photo shoot. Good times.
