Great business schools need great stock photography (for print and digital promo) and Pepperdine’s Graziadio Business School is preparing students for greatness in business administration, finance, and more across many sectors. The Graziadio marketing team was in need of a fresh set of photos that showcase real students in authentic classroom settings at one of the business school facilities, so we put together a day of shooting. Check out what came out!
Stephanie Moustakas' line of fine, quality, but oh-so-wearable jewelry is going to take the moms on the go world by storm. But first, she needed a ton of great product and lifestyle images to round out her website. Using the backdrop of her home, her sample pieces, and her kiddos (when they were in the mood) we shot a heap of images that will live on her website as category images, headers, and social media content to get this jewelry line launched right. Want to score some to die for pieces for yourself or someone you know? Head over to https://stephaniemoustakas.com/ to place your order today!
So you've got this amazing team. Beautiful location. World class wine, food, hospitality, view, décor, the list goes on. Now you just need some great images to communicate that reality. New head shots, stock images for the website, print and digital promo, the works. Photos that will represent your identity well.
That's what Malibu Beach Inn needed when they reached out to me for some not-your-average head shots of their team. Read more to meet the Malibu Beach Inn team, shining bright in their natural habitat.
Imagine Fest is a yoga and music festival that occurs in Malibu, CA, every year. The vibe is natural, youthful, and artistic, sprinkled with a generous helping of palo santo smoke. This photo shoot provided the foundation for their promotional efforts this year: from poster backgrounds to social media posts and website banners.
Malibu Wines is a popular summertime hangout where locals can pack a picnic, sip some great local wine, and kick their shoes off as the hot summer days turn into perfect summer evenings. Sometimes Malibu Wines brings in comedians or plays classic films on the lawn. Can life get any better?
Malibu Wines reached out in need of some quality lifestyle photography to power their visuals on social media (particularly Instagram) and their web presence.
BIRTHFIT is a worldwide community of educators who want to see a world where childbirth is empowered and elevated. They held their annual summit in Venice, CA, and it was complete with some functional training, talks, workshops, yoga, and a closing circle. These are images that BIRTHFIT HQ (whose website I built!) and the various BIRTHFIT regional directors (many of whose websites I also built!) will use for social media and to spruce up their websites with quality images.
Check out some of my fave snaps.
I love staycations as much as the next girl, so when the stunningly beautiful luxury beach front hotel, Malibu Beach Inn, reached out for photography in exchange for a free stay on a weeknight, it took me about 0.3 seconds to say heck yeah and offer a date.
Another month, another beautifully styled photo shoot filled with one-of-a-kind pieces from Honey & Oak. If you haven't seen their work yet, Honey & Oak is an artist collective based in Santa Barbara, California. Each month, their artists make, find & curate pieces that will make your world a little more whimsical and beautiful.
I had a great time shooting October product photography for the launch of Honey & Oak, a women-owned artist collective that offers a monthly rotation of handmade, found, curated objects that fit a soulful, nature-guided theme.
The site also features live feeds from each of Taylor's social media accounts, and a media page packed with easy downloadables.
Lauren then went on to print business cards with the new website url, and wrap them up as a stocking stuffer for Taylor to open on Christmas Eve. I'd say Lauren gets the wife of the year award.
Like all websites I build, this site is responsive (meaning it resizes and reformats when the browser window is resized for a narrow screen).
