Crazy Things I Do for My Job

September 13, 2021

If you think I am just a photographer…think again!

Sometimes I’m a creative director, photographer, food stylist, producer, project manager…..and sometimes I’m an astronaut. We can be anything we set our minds to, right?

The truth is, I am a photographer and stylist for some really well-known brands and our shoots can get a little… crazy. Sometimes, I have to get in front of the camera to bring those ideas to life! You won’t want to miss out on seeing some of the fun projects I have been a part of over the years — and the crazy things I do for my job.

Crazy ideas turned into real projects

Even though I may be “the boss” here at LISH Creative, that doesn’t stop me from jumping in to help bring clients’ ideas to life when I can!

Take our Butterfinger project. I “suffered” through a bad tan line on my thigh and had to wear pants during the heat of the summer for a month after this project was completed because the candy bar left a tan line that took forever to go away!


During our shoot with Benefit Cosmetics, we got super creative and very very into the glitter. Over the top? Never! Somehow I ended up with a completely covered glitter hand to showcase their mascara!

One of my favorite shoots was when I got to wear a space suit. Yep, you read that correctly! We were working with Welly, a company that makes first aid products fun. I had a blast wearing a space suit to showcase their Bravery Badge band aids which are in kid-friendly, fun space patterns!


Now it’s your turn!

I hope that these fun projects inspire you to get creative with your current projects and client ideas! If I can put myself out there and get in front of the camera to make those fun ideas come to life, so can you.
