Why Pictures are Important!

Hands down the number one thing that catches my eye when I'm looking for a shop to feature is the product photography. If you have interesting, eye catching photographs that jump off the screen I'm ten times more likely to feature you. Interesting and unique photos make me excited no matter what the product and therefore I want to share it with my readers.

Why do I mention this today? Because the above photographs from the shop Twirl Away on Etsy are the perfect example of what I'm talking about. There are numerous shops on Etsy selling children's clothing and more specifically children's clothing for little girls so why did I pick this particular shop to feature? The photographs. I love, love, love how the photos are cropped, only showing the actual product that is on sale but still on a model. So unique and unlike what I typically see when shopping around online. I also love the neutral background, wood floors and having the little model standing on the foot stool is fantastic! All so unique!

Having great photos will get your shop noticed for Etsy features, blog features, treasuries, sales, the list goes on and on. Read all you can about taking great pictures, think outside the photographic box and see what you can come up with to help your shop stand out.

The second biggest reason I wanted to feature this lovely shop....the actual products. I love these little skirts! They're adorable. I love the styles and the fabrics! The four pictures above are only a small sample of what Twirl Away has to offer. Be sure to check this shop out!

Wow, that was a lot of writing for me. I'm not usually so chit chatty. haha! Happy Tuesday all!
