If I learnt anything from running a market stall it was that our lovely products needed a proper platform to sell to our customers.
We have been working on our website with Becci at Clever Hedgehog Design and she was ready to open our online shop.
My attempts at photographing our stationery and tea towels were not great but fortunately our graphic designer Ollie is also a brilliant photographer. In fact that is what he does really. (Check out his website www.ollieweait.com )
We settled for a chilly day in February. Ollie lives in Henley-upon-Thames and his sister-in-law, my dear friend Jane, had introduced us. She very kindly offered to let us use her beautiful home in the Oxfordshire countryside for our shoot. Not only that but she has worked as a stylist and runs an event company creating bespoke parties (www.queenieand belles.events) so I was surrounded by the most fabulous creative energy and inspiration all day long.
We arrived to a roaring fire, pots of coffee and warm croissants. Ollie had brought along his protégé, Ella, and they set up while Jane and I chatted about our ideas for the day, arranged products and laid out props.
The day passed in a whirl and Ollie took hundreds of photos but we had a lot of fun.
I love my tribe…thanks guys…brilliant work.
