Where to start with Flatlays!

For businesses, bloggers and shopaholics alike, flat lay photos have become the new black.

They are just as the name describes – items that are laid flat on display, with or without complementing items. Flatlays present handmade brands a great opportunity to showcase products, as well as a great networking opportunity to connect with other businesses.

When my daughter Isla was born, my husband and I made a decision to not place photos of her on social media. So when My Little I Designs started up I had to work out how to present my pieces without the use of a model, and flat lays were the answer!

In this article I’ll share my top tips for photographing a great flatlay, which can in turn boost sales.

Today on the blog we’ve got Bel Meginley from My Little I Design helping you improve your flatlays!  This blog post first appeared in One Thimble Issue 9.

Every time they shared an image a little more of the story came together.  I was so pleased when Cathie agreed to share a run down of this shoot!  Read on and be inspired by their story.
