Ruby and Custard Crochet Book Photography

Ruby and Custard crochet book photography

Crochet book photography is complete!  It has been a hectic time here at Ruby & Custard HQ as the crochet book photography has been happening in my house!  4 days and more than 2000 photographs – I’m shattered and the house is a bit of a tip!

The photography was done by the very talented Rosie Barnett, ( and she did the most amazing job. Her eye for detail and how to get the best from natural light and her simple styling were inspiring to watch. The photos included in this post are ones I captured on my trusty iPhone and do not do justice to the beauty of her images!

The styling was beautifully simple and includes lots of helpful close up images of the book projects for the patterns so they will be helpful instructional images.

I had some wonderful models, including the older of the Ruby & Custard brood. Bellatrix, who has modelled for Ruby and Custard several times before took part and her younger brother, Artemus, also joined in the fun!

And baby Jenson was an absolute star – he LOVED the camera!

It has been a great few days and I am so excited to see (and hopefully share some of) the photos that Rosie took!

In the meantime, I hope you are all ok? I’m off to have a cup of tea…or hot chocolate with marshmallows?!
