And those twins don't like to sit to model! Children are so hard to get to sit nicely or pose for a photo. I wouldn't give up on the models. Maybe you can get some photos that are a little less candid looking for the hats???
i think it helps to see things on models...and they are such cute ones, could help clinch the sale! :-)
I think having both is great, as an Etsyer who loves to make treasuries--model free pics are what I like to use to do that, but as a shopper I definitely want to see what it looks like on a real kid :)I love the legs pic!!
I like both. It gives different angles of the item, and show what it looks like on and offf
Having your items on a model is definitely a plus, as it helps a shopper. Having photos with and without is a good mix. For some items, the models really help. For example, those leg warmers actually ON the cutie pies up there - without that photo, I'd have a hard time trying to imagine what they might look on a kiddo.
I think both are great!
I think you need both, although professional looking and quality pictures is the key for selling.
The kids in your post are adorable :). Personally, I prefer to see pics without models. I guess I'm strange but I don't like to think of a piece of clothing being worn by someone else before I wear it. If I were buying a hat for myself and saw it on a live model, I would wonder about cleanliness, etc But then I am a germaphobe. I do like to see hats and clothing displayed on mannequins and wig heads, though.
such cute models
