Please Vote

Since I have gotten so many varied responses to my photos I thought I would take a poll. Please help me by voting!!----------------->

I need to know what I should do about my photos on my etsy shop Oil and Spice. I have made some changes already to the shop so there are only 1 or 2 more soaps left with kid pictures but here is a link to some of the shots I had: flikr Originally all my soap shots had at least 2-3 shots with kids and 1-2 shots of just the soap.

Please check them out and vote! If you are confused by this see the below post for more info.

P.S. The last one should read "Kids creep me out" not "keeps creep me out" I guess I was doing this too fast....

I think the new pictures look great, too!

The pictures of the kids that I like best are ones when they are smiling a bit. I think it comes across as less creepy when they are smiling...not that I think the kids look creepy, but other people I guess do. Anyway, I think you take great pictures of the soap, and I will keep your shop in mind for gifts throughout the year.

Hi Mary,
Gotta tell you, never gave the kids a thought in your soap pictures (other than them being cute, of course.;)). But I can see focusing more on the soap.
Was thinking: can you take artistic picture of families and events for your church? That would give you a more "creative" outlet. We have a girl at our church that I think actually makes money doing that now. and I think you have a great eye for it!

I liked your original pictures. One idea I had was to take pictures with the ingredients you put in the soap. Like, for the "Bees Knees" you could have clear jars filled with honey, a piece of lemon grass and then the soap could be sitting on some wheat germ. That way people can see the natural ingredients that are in that particular bar of soap. Of course, some may be harder to do-Frankinsense and Myrrh. I have to admit that in the beginning I did wonder what the kids had to do with soap, but then I really liked the look you were going for and that it was different then all the other soap pages. I think you website was easier to remember because it was different.
