Well folks, this is it. 2022 is almost over — and what a RIDE this year has been!
From exploring cool new tricks and techniques in our photography studio, to working with some amazing brands, to sharing what we’ve learned with all of you… we can confidently say that 2022 has been full.
January 2023 will mark our seventh anniversary, which just blows our minds! We’ve worked with some dream brands and some truly amazing people. We’re grateful for every project and we love getting to “play” every day.
To show you just how much fun we had in 2022, we thought we’d wrap up the year by sharing our latest client project, as well as recap some of our most exciting projects from the last year!
Is there much better than a good lemonade on a hot day — or when you need a refreshing beverage? Not really. But Apricot Lane isn’t just good lemonade — their brand mission and beautifully designed bottles really elevate the whole lemonade drinking experience.
If you’ve seen the award-winning documentary, “The Biggest Little Farm,” then you’re already familiar with the farm. We loved bringing the outdoors in with branch/leaf shadows, and lots of bold and colorful fruit cues. Pomegranates are probably one of the most photogenic fruits of all time!
Short video… sketch??
This was a super fun and exciting shoot for us — who doesn’t love Fruit Loops?
From incubation to execution, we loved every minute of this shoot, and we did something we’ve never done before. We actually had a sketch drawn up for this short social video!
Wanna use LISH photos on your products?
Have you ever wished you could get your hands on some LISH art for products? Well, you totally can now! We officially onboarded a licensing agent at the end of 2021, which means that all you brilliant brand managers and business owners can use LISH images on your products!
So if you’ve ever looked at one of our photos and thought, “That would look so good on a mug or a planner or calendar….!” all you have to do is start a conversation with our licensing agency, Wain’s World.
It’s a pancake palooza with IHOP!
In our opinion, there is nothing better in life than pancakes and photography. And if you give us a way to bring both of them together? We are SO there!
This video shoot really got our creative juices flowing as fast as the pure maple syrup.
One of the cool things about this session was that we did it… without using any fake food. You all know we’re fans of the fake-it method, especially when working with something as soft as pancakes.
But bringing the authenticity of a platter of hot buttermilk flapjacks was really important to us for this campaign, and we think we nailed it!
Imagine this: a customer opens their door to a cute brown box with a completely custom label on the outside. They instantly get excited because they know where that box is from based on the label alone – it’s from you!
That’s exactly what you can expect when you use Avery’s online printing service. AND we did a production with them earlier this year, to give you a taste of the absolute cuteness you can expect!
And on a non-food related note…
Alisha here, and I’ll just be honest: The joy and fulfillment I get from being able to create and play as my job is nothing short of amazing to me. Even on the hard days, I know this is truly such a lucky thing I get to do.
On top of that, I wanted to shout out some of our amazing long-term clients (many of who have been with us for almost our entire existence!!)
