THIS FEELS BIG TO ME

gorman clothing | creative direction: bri emery photography: jesse chamberlin

okay, i am very excited to be writing this post. i’ve been saying for a while on here that i want to get into more creative direction for other brands. i’ve done quite a bit of it on this blog over the past 8 years, working with companies on sponsored posts, creating events, doing photoshoots and style posts for fun. i finally got to this point where i wanted to feel more confident with the title outside of the designlovefest brand and taking my vision to other companies and executing it. because while designlovefest is my #1 love and i will still be pursuing it on a daily basis, i feel like i have multiple facets to my style. i would love to have a brand come to me and jesse (photographer), and be able to create a complete look and feel for them, an entire photoshoot with a story that comes to life. sometimes i’m constrained within my own brand here, because well, it’s a brand that has its own identity already. and i like that. but i also wanted to be able to break those bounds and be experimental with each shoot we do. it’s my hope that people will still be interested in following my side path on this blog as well. and if not, that’s okay too!

so, this is our first real photoshoot together with that goal in mind. we made a list of brands we love and decided to just go for it. gorman is a clothing brand i fell in love with when i visited melbourne australia with blogshop a few years ago. it’s such a bright, happy, fun, daring company. we presented them with the idea of an LA love story. a girl who starts off in the pits of heartbreak, goes through it, feels mixed emotions and eventually ends up on the other side of that darkness. most of us have been through heartbreak in our lives and can relate to the extreme ups and downs. i wanted it to resonate with people in whatever stage they are experiencing. (i’ve been here a few times in my life, that’s for sure) the finale is her writing on a fogged up car window and it says “end to begin,” which is something you just gotta do in that situation, right? let me take you through the story…and seriously thank you SO much for your support. jesse and i have been texting each other crying emojis because we’re so happy to have each other and being able to create art together that people are interested in is truly amazing.

her heart was in 100 pieces.

the phase where you lounge around in silence or listen to sad music to make you even sadder. it hurts down to your bones. it’s so depressing it’s almost beautiful.

all i think about is you, you, you…

you’re driving around and pass your favorite restaurant together, and then that song comes on the radio that reminds you of them, and you can still hear their voice…it’s consuming, irritating, distracting. they are everywhere you turn.

9 KITCHENS I’D LIKE TO COOK IN…

the kitchen in my rental house isn’t really my style. but that’s cool, i can still dream about what my future kitchen will look like. i’m not really in a rush to buy a house…but someday! which one is your kitchen style??

a single girl’s kitchen dreams come true. pastels + tile…

i’ve pinned this kitchen on 5 different occasions on accident. i’m obsessed!…

oh i can SERIOUSLY get down with this one…those chairs, that light…

these bar stools sure make a statement…

all white + color. yeah, count me in on this one

on a fancier note…and pretty unique with the bench, right?…

love the garden vibe happening here

this is just pleasing to my eyes…

an all time favorite kitchen shot…

happy friday! -bri
