CREATIVE DIRECTION + STYLING + PRODUCTION
For brands, photographers, and publications I produce editorial content ranging from lifestyle to dinner parties to travel stories. My work has been featured in the pages of Coastal Living, Santa Barbara Magazine, and Flutter. I am a former event producer and I understand the art of putting together the right team for the right project. My productions are meticulously planned, so on on shoot day we can focus solely on “getting the shot.”
Priced per project.
HOW IT WORKS
Concept: Either created by me or in collaboration with the Client.
Logistics: I book the location, model, hair and makeup, pull props, and manage the shoot budget.
Design: Typically, I will create a shared Pinterest board to flesh out design concept.
Props: I pull all props and rentals for the shoot, such as tabletop, floral, furniture etc.
Pre-Production: I handle all vendor coordination and logistics and create the prop list, shot list and call sheet.
On Set: I style all elements on set and manage overall creative direction and logistics.
Post-Production: If it’s a portfolio or test shoot I make recommendations for where, and which, photos to submit for publication.
