I apologize in advance for getting all sappy on you with this post, but I just can’t help it. Finally getting to see the Amazon Event and Party photos that I styled is so surreal, and one of the most exciting moments so far in this crazy career that I stumbled upon!
Having gone from being a confused 20 year old girl who quit college in West Virginia, to a 28 year old small business owner that got to style photos in the Amazon studios in Seattle is quite the story. Out of all of the amazingly talented people they could’ve chosen for the job, being the one they picked basically hit me like a ton of emotional bricks. In the best way possible, of course! I’m so incredibly thankful for all of the doors that have been opened up to me along the way.
Now… I’m super pumped to share all of the pretty final images and ideas with you! plus you can shop all of the occasions on the new Event & Party page right here! Before you go shopping, I wanted to give you a peek into the making of the photos, plus introduce our new little Amazon family that we made after a week of 12 hour days, a few tight timelines, celebratory coconut pie, and me forcing everyone to wear unicorn party hats midday…
While I had all too much fun dreaming up the concepts for eleven holidays, we had some seriously great help with the food styling to bring it to life. Kelsey Eads conquered the food game while simultaneously putting up with me asking her “Can I eat this?” every five seconds after a photo was taken.
I also fell in Love (capital L intended) with the Amazon studios creative team, pictured above. They made us feel super welcome and totally didn’t judge me for very clearly winging it every day of the week, ha!
As it turns out, getting an ample amount of smoke from dry ice for a spooky Halloween cocktail takes approximately 5 different people wafting fans in uncomfortable squatting positions…
All in all I’m not sure I can even pick a favorite scene that we created, I basically want to live in all of them! Or eat cake from each, but you know what I mean. Instead of picking a favorite, let’s just relive it a little with this time lapse video, shall we?
Be sure to check out all of the photos live on the Amazon Event & Party page, and a huge thank you Amazon for partnering with us on this!
