I do love to take stash shots – there’s something very calming about folding carriers neatly, and it feels so satisfying to set up a nicely composed shot. It’s been quite some time since I last took one – I’m glad I got around to it today! Of course, when I set up a SSS, I never take just one photo 😉
Don’t these ring slings look just lovely hanging over the edge of the drawers?
These dark blue/neutrals are so classy. I was lucky enough to win the baby booties from Red Stitch Blue Stitch designs. I’m really impressed with them – great quality.
In this stack, my current favourite is the top wrap – my To The Loom & Back handwoven. It’s squishy, smooshy, so soft and an incredibly forgiving weave. Ada Ocean is visiting, and I’m enjoying the gorgeously vibrant colour.
I love the way the bright red vintage Prima adds a pop of colour to this stack of soft blues and creams in this shot.
Do you enjoy taking stash shots? If you have questions about any of my carriers, ask away!
I recently took a stash shot featuring the indios I currently own. It was a nice shot.
Then I set up a few of the indios for a taper comparison shot, since one has deeper tapers than unsual. (I really love geekery details like this!)
I was all set to bundle the wraps up and take them back into my house, when my eye was caught by the ‘messy’ edge of the wraps. I’d lined up the tapers oh-so-neatly, but behind that I’d pushed the wraps around any-old-how, letting them fold and drape towards the ground.
And actually, it was really gorgeous. One of the things I love most about wraps is the way they move and drape. I never seem to capture this quality in flat shots of wraps. Any yet here, without any effort at all, was exactly that beautiful quality: the wraps doing just what wraps do. Muddly, puddly deliciousness.
My lesson from this? Things don’t need to be neat to be beautiful. And I should always remember to look twice – sometimes beauty is where we least expect it to be.
