Simons Family Photo Crew

This week and next I’m in my hometown of Owasso, Oklahoma, to work with my book photographer, Brandi Simons. These have been some of my favorite times in the past couple of years—Brandi is such a joy to work with, and her photos are amazing. Remember this one?


Brandi completely “gets” what I do with knitting, and she knows how to bring my toys to life with hilarious and beautifully shot scenes. She also shot the photos for Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi (coming out in less than a month!), and as you may have guessed, working with her again this summer means that you can expect another book in the future!


Often Brandi will get her whole family involved in our shoots. Her husband Mike Simons is also a professional photographer, and her daughters Sonnie and Sarah are excellent models and assistants.

I so wish I could share the amazing images that are coming from our work this week, but that must wait until the book is published, which will take more than a year! But I’ll be doing some previews from Teeny-Tiny soon, so I’ll finally get to share what Brandi did last year. Stay tuned!

  1. Is it going to be like your first book, but with different toys? I’m looking forward to it!

  2. It’s going to be a surprise! (I don’t want to say too much while it’s still in production…)

  3. To quote a favorite movie of mine….. I’m filled with “antisa………………pation!” cant wait for a sneaky peak. Congrats on the third book. Looking forward to details as you slip them out! :)
