What a fabulously fun shoot this was! Working with the ever so lovely Rita and Joyce from La de la! we had a brilliant two days staging and photographing 72 - yes 72! - pieces of beautiful hand-stamped vintage cutlery. The cutlery is really quite lovely with a whole range of quirky, thoughtful, loving and cheeky messages stamped onto them which cover all sorts of celebrations, events, occasions and even those "just because" occasions! They can even personalise them too - how cool is that!
There was an endless stream of food being prepared over the two days as well as a table (and surrounding floor!) full of various props that we worked our way through - and thankfully my able assistant was on hand to keep us supplied with endless cups of tea and coffee and provide the all important lunch to refuel us for the next set of spoons! Though my other, not so able, assistant just got in the way, demanded regular tummy tickles or snored in the sun!
This post would be more than a wee bit long if I shared all 72 images, so as gorgeous as they all are, I've tried to keep it to just a few of my favourites - I definitely know what a lot of people will be getting under the tree this year!
So which is your favourite?!
