Good grief, pictures are exhausting!
When I started this adventure I said to my boyfriend "I only want to take pictures once, so let's make sure they're perfect to start". I'm sure everyone has this intention when starting out, but it just never ends up happening that way. I must have taken a thousand photos, and I thought they were great! I bought a photo box and lighting and was super diligent about placement. When I uploaded them to the website though- they just didn't look right. My white photo box background looked dingy against the bright white background of the site and it made me feel like it was 1999 again and I was using some Angel Fire domain. So back to the drawing board I went. I spent nearly an entire day editing the photos and making the background perfectly white! I think they look more professional now. I know they look small- they are supposed to. After researching other candle shops I found that customer's number 1 complaint was that their item was smaller than expected. I don't want to be like all the other shops out there. I want to be direct, I want my customers to really KNOW what they are getting. The adorable size candle is just that- adorable. It's tiny and it fits in the palm of your hand! There can be no mistake of that when purchasing from my pictures. I am still working on my larger size stock (the standard size) and when they're ready I'll be adding them here, so just stay tuned folks! Life is a work in progress, never give up!
