Like many toddlers, Vera was skeptical about what the adults were up to. I guess if you think about it from their perspective, someone takes them to a new place, then three adults act ridiculous for a while. You can hardly blame them for their caution! Vera was quickly wooed by Kate Fisher of Black Bird Knits when she turned on her grandma.
You can imagine that choosing a location is a huge part of location photography. Kate happens to be friends with every artist in the Greater Rochester Area and asked her friend Lynne Feldman if we could use her apartment. Lynne is an accomplished artist whose apartment was an art gallery – both of her own work and of various artwork from her travels all over the world. I was captivated by the colors and vibrancy of her work.
Vera is modeling Black Bird Knit’s Girton Place Baby/Toddler Sweater.
In this image, she’s modeling the Vick Park Baby/Toddler Vest.
I have a bit of a negative association with hand knitted clothing, but Kate’s clothing was truly artwork. I’m not sure I’ve seen work like this out of a national store. While she doesn’t plan to sell the finished product, she can connect you with people who will knit items for you. Just contact her to learn more!
