Product Photography + Image styling | GIVEAWAY!!

Many of you know I photograph weddings and portraits, but what you might not know is that I also offer another genre of photography that I’m very passionate about! It’s not about photographing people and requires whole different creative processes…it’s commercial product photography. Over the past few months I have been really pushing myself creatively in this area and I wanted to share some behind the scenes views at what I do and what types of businesses I work with.

[Recipe card – Example of product styling]

Product photography + styling allows me to creatively stage and capture products for small businesses and bloggers so that they are best marketed to the customer. What I have found is that photographs are THE most important advertising tool for an online business.

67% of customers consider clear, details images to carry more weight than the product information, full description, and customer ratings. – MDG ADVERTISING

I had the opportunity to work with a friend of mine (Emily) to style a commercial product shoot for her website/business launch! Her business is called Anchor Point Paper Co. and she designs the cutest paper goods ever. You have seen her work in a couple of my editorial shoots over the past year. Here & here.

:) I snapped a couple behind the scenes shots while we were styling the recipe cards (pictured below). I just love what we came up with! By styling a scene around the card, we were able to achieve a narrative that a potential buyer can insert themselves into. It is so much more visually engaging than just the recipe card on its own.
