That's why she's asking, Denise. :rollseyes:

Both are beautiful photos and children, but they do look machine knit to me. Do you have any friends who knit? If all else fails you could start with some photos of beautiful yarn and yarn on the needles. I've seen some photos like that that are just gorgeous! Maybe a contest for customers... knit something with YOUR yarn and if it meets your approval and they let you take a photo of it give them a gift card or something? What better way to bring back customers than to have a photo of THEIR knitting on the wall!

EDIT: OMG..why don't you use those two gorgeous pictures of your own daughters on the walls! They would be perfect!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
