LIGHTBOX 2019

lightbox | designlovefest

it’s been a few months since i have dreamt up a shoot, so i was really excited to dive in with this Lightbox shoot! we’ve been working with them for awhile now and it’s always such a fun partnership. it was one of those magical days where everything was running smoothly, and just a lot of positive creative energy on set. here are some of my favorites from the day!

CONCEPT:

day in the life of a girl who loves the sunshine and her alone time. she loves sitting peacefully in beautiful spaces. floating with her pet swan, laying in the grass, playing with shadows. lightbox jewelry fits perfectly with this story line, they are a vibrant company that is making jewelry a gift to give yourself, a friend, a family member or someone you love. it doesn’t have to be a romantic gift from a partner and i love that. the vibe is a midcentury pink house, 60’s vibe. edward scissorhands styling inspiration (trimmed hedges, pastel colors, quirky), with the laid back virgin suicides feeling. in the pool, i want to play with the reflections and sunlight. focused in on her ears as she is underwater or just above water line. vintage style clothing, muted, colorful. fun props like fringed umbrellas, sequined fruit, eye mask, jello molds…and a SWAN!

lightbox recently released a line of stacking rings which were one of the focuses of the shoot. i love them piled on, mixing different colors and shapes. they look really cool with three or four on a finger.

A POST MEMORIAL DAY SALE!

hope everyone had a relaxing weekend with friends + family! we’re having a little post Memorial Day sale (because we went fully off the grid for the weekend), 25 % off both our new business of social media workshop and also the social media workshop using code happy25. we just launched the business workshop this year and for those of you who have already watched and sent us such sweet emails, we really appreciate your feedback and love that you love the class. i can’t tell you how good it feels to put your heart into something and have people respond to positively.

what’s the difference? 

the business workshop

we get so many questions about running the business, ideas, client work, inspiration, invoicing, contracts etc and this workshop was born out of those questions. it goes over things that aren’t as glamorous as just taking and editing a pretty picture. it goes into what i do when i’m stuck in a rut, stating motivated through the years, how i come up with my shoot ideas,  as well as the business side of designlovefest. it’s goes over everything from how we invoice, tips on looking at a contract, negotiating your rate, how to know what to charge a client, etc. this is an overview class that is packed with information. it’s going to feel dense at times, we recommend that you watch it at least twice through.once, without stress and pressure to take it all in and then again to take notes and go over things that might have peaked your interest. this class is for anyone who has been curious about the business side of DLF, what goes into the day to to day operations and how you can take the things we’ve learned and apply them to your current business or your dream business you’d love to start one day. it goes without saying that there are many ways to be a small business owner, this class is specially designed to share what has worked for me over the past 8 years and the lessons i’ve learned along the way. we aren’t lawyers or accountants, we’re two people who have been working really hard to build an authentic brand and that have seen an increased interest in sharing about how we built this business and how we keep it running. we’re answering many questions that we’ve received from our readers and we hope that you find the information valuable and that we can help you on your own small business journey.

you can purchase the class here. use code happy25 for 25% off! 

and the social media class

do you want to learn tricks about how to use instagram, facebook, twitter and pinterest for your growing business? as freelancers, these are the outlets we use to get our name into the world. to let people know who we are and what we offer. social media can be your greatest asset and also your greatest detriment. there is a split second window to make an impact and this course will teach you how to capitalize on those tiny moments.

join us for a 1.5 hour video seminar taught by bri emery, who has grown her social following to over 1.5 million people. she will be going over all of the tricks she has learned along the way. which platforms work best for what content, how to grow your following, present your photos, promote your business in an organic way and reach your target audience. this class is open to all levels – it doesn’t matter if you have 5 followers or 100,000. previous attendees of this class have experienced social growth of more than 400% in the months following the seminar!

FRONT PATIO MAKEOVER

front patio makeover | designlovefest

it takes quite a while to finish the spaces in your home. it’s too expensive and time consuming for me to do the whole thing at once. so we’ve been slowly taking it room by room. since we’ve been staying home a lot more, we really wanted to start utilizing our front yard! it’s so lush and pretty out there, but we never really put the effort in to designing that little patio. we just threw extra chairs out there and let it get dirty and then never sat there (bummer). we went with all article furniture (been a huge fan of them for a long time now) they have such stylish and reasonably priced outdoor choices, i was really impressed!

now we enjoy our cappuccinos out there in the morning, i like to meditate/read and take in the views, and dinner outside is always awesome here in LA. i want to get some more candles and string lights out there (and maybe a fire pit), but this refresh is amazing and got us spending way more time outside.
