My Photoshoot with Love & Light Photographs + New Website

Last year, I had some great experiences working with local creatives; filming events and workshops, schooling brides, and creating brand films for photographers and other small business owners. While there is a special place in my heart for wedding films, it was a huge difference in opportunity to have full creative control. I was able to brainstorm, make mistakes, and attempt things that typically I wouldn’t have time for. I loved it – when you’re a runner, its nice to get out and swim in the ocean every once in a while.

With this new found interest came a lot of logistical questions when it came to a new website. How would I showcase firstly, myself, but more importantly these new “brand movement films”? How could I show small business owners that they do (BIG) things for business? How would they fit alongside weddings?

In come two people I admire and respect, Jessa of love & light photographs and Ravyn of 315 design. With Jessa’s lifestyle photoshoot and Ravyn’s web design skills, we were able to create a new website for between sleep and awake – YAY. The photoshoot also brought to light that my husband and I like the color green, A LOT.

I’m ending with a photo of our adopted cat, Fern, who clearly wasn’t ready for his close-up.

new custom packaging

in 2014, i completely got rid of my DVD products and upgraded to wooden USB flash drives. NO REGRETS. DVDs are unable to show the full HD that my videos are filmed in, and are easily scratched. with a flash drive, you can take those films and put them on an unlimited amount of computers, hard drives, or even put them on your iTunes.

since i’ve been filming less and exporting more lately, it was a good time to refresh their packaging. (and also, i’m just obsessed with packaging.) i was timid to order the wooden boxes in a green wash, but ended up LOVING them once i held them in my hands. they’re sturdy, protective, and…really pretty. i can’t wait to send all these out!
