Deirdre | Creative Product & Lifestyle Shoot

Kia & Co. Branding Collective Client

As a Kia & Co. Branding Collective Client, Deirdre and I get together each month to shoot the content that she needs for her upcoming marketing needs. Her early March session for Pencraft & Post covered many aspects of her business including her big 3-0 birthday, easter & spring products, and her super cute custom doormats.

Upcoming events & holidays

When we get together each month for Deirdre’s planning and business strategy meeting, we always talk about what big events & holidays are coming up that we need to prepare for. For March’s session, Deirdre wanted to have content to post as she celebrated her birthday month with her audience. We created images around her giant bespoke balloons and a few of the different birthday products that she offers.

What Deirdre had to say about working with Kia & Co:

Working with Gari-Ann was one of the best decisions I’ve made for my business! She has SUCH great energy-you’ll feel totally at ease and have so much fun. She has a great aesthetic eye and a talent for making you feel confident in front of her camera. The images that Gari-Ann shot for me for a branding shoot consistently get the most attention on my Instagram. Without a doubt I will be calling Kia + Co. again!

Spring & Easter Products

I look forward each month to see what cuteness Deirdre is bringing to the world! For each holiday she offers the cutest handmade products that can be gifted or displayed. This month we were photographing her Easter and Spring products–the cutest being her acrylic bunnies that could be used as hang tags for Easter gifts or place cards for a super fun get together.

Custom Doormats

The next big product that we were photographing was her custom made doormats…featuring her best friends, Sia & Bear. I love that she creates different door mats for the holidays…but ones that can also be used year around!
