I'm writing today from the beautiful village of Wickford, located on Rhode Island's Narragansett Bay. Photo shoots are so much fun! I've been sharing pictures from our Fall/Winter 2013 photo shoot all week, but I thought I'd talk a little more about the cool locations we've visited. deCordova Sculpture Park & Museum - Lincoln, MA… Continue reading On Location: Fall/Winter 2013 Photo Shoot

Behind the Scenes: Spring 2013 Photo Shoot

If changing leaves and a crisp autumn breeze don’t make you think spring, chances are you’ve never been a part of a Berroco photo shoot.  It may have been a bit cool for the girls modeling colorful beach knits, but we definitely got some great shots for the new booklets.  Before I tell you anymore… Continue reading Behind the Scenes: Spring 2013 Photo Shoot
