This summer I had the privilege and honor to work with Sarah of Blissberry Design. Sarah is a hand-letterer and one of the sweetest people I know. Sarah reached out to me via instagram in need of custom styled stock photos for her website and instagram where she could highlight her designs and fonts. We chatted about her needs, she curated her inspiration board, I drafted her client sheet and curated her props. Then we were on our way.
One thing I love about creating custom styled stock photos is that once the client has outlined the type of photos they are in need of and then provide me some inspiration, I usually have ideas rolling around in my head about what I would like to create.
One thing that stood out the most to me about the inspiration that Sarah provided, was texture. She pinned a variety of images with texture and she also expressed a desire for feminine styling. Between our conversations and her inspiration I dreamed up images that were feminine, but down-to-earth.
One main theme for Sarah's photos were mockups which included; mugs, frames, ipad shots, notebooks, clipboards, packaging, books, and coasters. I also created a variety of lifestyle photos, styling that included lots of white space, and composition that could be cropped into banners.
Are you in need of your own custom styled stock? Let's work together!
One really fun thing I included in Sarah's sessions were donuts! After snapping so many photos with donuts, it made me want to include them in the shop! Hopefully I'll get some in the works soon. xoxo. Samantha
