October catalog photoshoot

It’s been a busy few weeks for me, let me tell you, and I’m not even talking about the Sock Summit craziness. The September catalog is still in the printing & mailing process, while at the same time we’re shooting the photos for the October catalog and planning projects for the Winter catalog. Whew! I wanted to take some brief time to show you a glimpse of one of our October photoshoots, and to introduce you to your new KP catalog manager/designer, Christina.

I got this candid photo of Christina during our location shoot at Hopworks Urban Brewery in SE Portland. Hopworks is Portland’s first Eco-Brewpub, offering organic beer in an awesome sustainable building that is a darn cool setting for photos. (Not only that, but they have amazing homemade rootbeer, which I sampled with lunch after the shoot.)

The whole setting was so inspiring–we could have shot all day here. Unfortunately, we only had 2.5 hours, as we had to squeeze the shoot in before they opened at 11am. Here’s a photo of one of our new models watching another one get photographed in a gorgeous cabled capelet made from Gloss HW. (You’ll have to wait until October to get a closer look, sorry!)

And here are our photographers Kerry & Sarah checking the photos of the capelet with Christina on the laptop:

Christina and I are so excited to be working together on the catalog. We have a lot of big plans and fun ideas, so stay tuned! <
