November was another busy month working with clients on their new product launches and preparing for the holiday rush. Without in-person markets makers have been relying on updating their e-commerce and attracting new shoppers via Instagram so a lot of fresh content needed to be created.

My largest project for the month was with Callia Flowers, coordinating a photoshoot for five bouquets yet to be released as well as add on items. This project required a beautiful location, and a few models, it was a lot of work but I am so happy with how it turned out. I cannot share the images from this shoot until later in the winter and Valentine’s 2021 when the bouquets are available for purchase. What I can share below are the a few photos from a quick mini shoot we did just to capture the pretty Callia box under a Christmas Tree.

Friday Sock Co

Friday Sock Co designs purposely mismatches socks in Canada and has them ethically manufactured in Italy. We love Friday Socks in our family and this was a really fun shoot because it involved my own little rascals. They especially loved the new ugly Christmas sweater socks!

You can shop Friday Socks online and with local pick up so be sure to check them out.

Ebony & Ivory Candle Co

Candles are one of my favourite products to style and the holiday line from Ebony & Ivory did not disappoint. This holiday themed shoot needed to have a cozy feel as Ebony & Ivory was just transitioning away from using black and white images and wanted a edit that would help with the transition. These candles are 100% soy, phthalate free, smell sooo freaking good, and I would happily repurpose the jars later on.

Urban Cowgirl Co

Linnden from Urban Cowgirl Co creates the most beautiful kimonos, she sends 5-6 each month for a monthly styled product photoshoot however November’s shoot was all about the cozy Aztec Scarves. The colours of these are great and the scarves are versatile, I would wear one all winter but also on the colder nights camping in the summer.

Salty Sea Dog Designs

November was a big month with Salty Sea Dog Designs with a styled product shoot for their new mugs and butter dishes, followed by a flatlay styled shoot for the launch of their new t-shirts and sweatshirts, we then had the chance to meet up for a lifestyle themed photoshoot to prep for the launch of the new t-shirts and sweatshirts.

We are big fans of Salty Sea Dogs around here, we use their mugs every single day for coffee or tea, my husband uses one of their tiki mugs for cold drinks too! I am so excited that they have launched a new product line featuring their designs! The T’s and sweatshirts are really comfy, I would wear them year round.

You can shop Salty Sea Dog Designs on their website and Etsy Shop.

The final photo is of a macaron by Macarons by Megan, she perfectly captured every detail of the Salty Sea Dog creations!

Jaybee Design

I always look forward to styling products from Jaybee Design, and this photoshoot was to capture shots of the monthly subscription boxes that were launched for December. These boxes are filled with so many goodies, and can be purchased as a one time gift or as a 3, 6 or 12 month subscription.

Grow & Co

It had been a while since I had worked with products from Grow & Co so I was pretty excited to hear the ding of a message from them seeing if I could pick up a last minute product shoot for the cutting boards they had just launched. These boards are available in three wood options and two sizes, and are custom with your family name. These boards were really fun to style while highlighting the monograms and wood grain.

Callia Flowers Holiday Box

Callia Flowers is a female-founded online floral delivery service offering a luxury experience across Canada. Outside of working with Callia on styled photoshoots I have ordered Callia bouquets for friends, and it is so simple to select a bouquet and delivery time. When you receive a bouquet from Callia Flowers is unlike anything else, it truly is a luxury experience. Callia offers three bouquet styled at a time that are changed every 4-6 weeks, they also have add on items to select from to make the Callia moment extra special.

This photoshoot was not like our regular ones, this was a mini shoot just to showcase the pretty Callia box under a Christmas tree for their holiday promotions. Because we are under strict stay at home requirements I had to set up my trusty tripod and step in front on the camera.
