We all know that creative partnerships are strategic in operating your own small business. Lucky for me, Social House provides a plethora of talent to consult and collaborate with on a regular basis. Through membership I connected with Michelle of Luxe Lara Design & Marketing, which quickly evolved from job referrals to conceptualizing our own ideas. As a web designer, Michelle is in constant need of quality content to represent the brands she is working with, and happens to require professional photography services. After shooting together on a few client projects we both realized we were on the same wave length when it comes to visual storytelling. Timing is a funny thing – I had been wanting to shoot more stock photography, so when Michelle approached me with a creative business partnership I was ready to put our plan into action.
First impressions are everything in the digital world that we live in. Michelle and I were thriving on each other’s creative energy, so we experimented in styling our own clean, original imagery to customize. Combining my eye for organic lifestyle and Michelle’s web design skills, we proudly launched the Luxe Brand Shop to offer a variety of stock imagery for bloggers and branding design. Our little digital marketplace features flat lays and styled vignettes to license for promotional use with carefully curated content. We have big plans for more involved sets as we focus on an editorial calendar for seasonal inspirations.
In addition to growing our lifestyle stock photography collection, we will be co-hosting an upcoming branded photography workshop for creatives in Lake Worth on Saturday, May 20 at 10:00 am. CoCreate is a fun and impactful workshop that combines ailailed information, best practices, hands-on instruction, a headshot session and useful takeaways like digital downloads.
