Gina’s Balloons | On-Location Brand Shoot for Balloon Artist

Gina, an amazing balloon artist, had just moved into a beautiful new studio in Madison, Alabama and she was ready for a refresh in branding images! It had been a couple years since I had worked with Gina, so it was time for updated images. We had previously done brand sessions for Gina in Downtown Huntsville and for Christmas when we shot her balloon bags.

15 year business anniversary

This year marks Gina’s 15 year business anniversary and she wanted to capture images that she could share to celebrate with her clients and say a big thank you. Partnering with Alphalit Huntsville, Gina rented large numbers to include in her shoot that added the right impact for these fun anniversary images. 

Branding Shot list

There were a number of storylines that Gina wanted to capture surrounding her business and new studio, here is what our shot list looked like:

  • 15th anniversary celebration images
  • Inflating balloons
  • Putting together a backdrop
  • Selecting color schemes, color theory books
  • Balloon & Tassel wall
  • Receiving a new balloon order


In addition to the static images, I also shot images to make into Gifs for Gina to give her the ability to show her personality on social media. We planned for 2 different Gifs as end products.
