High Oak & Co. | Product Tutorial Brand Session featuring Cricut

In partnership with Cricut, Chelsea, of the wedding publication, Tidewater and Tulle, tells the story of her overseas trip that turned into an inspiring love story during a worldwide pandemic that literally left her locked down in the UK. Chelsea and Robert combined their love and talents to make a business that became High Oak & Co.

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

Trustworthy and oh so wonderful, Gari-Ann is such an amazing professional when it comes to my random branding projects. Highly recommend to anyone needing quality photos for their own biz needs!

High Oak & Co.

In her article published on Tidewater and Tulle, Chelsea shares all about building a business around her favorite tool, the Cricut Explore Air 2 machine, and selling on her favorite platform, Etsy. Their most popular sign that most accurate expresses 2020 as a year is, “Spread Love not Germs”.

Branding Session Goals at the Historic Post Office

I came in as a branding photographer to capture Chelsea working with her Cricut machine at the gorgeous Historic Post Office in Hampton, Virginia. Our goal for this session was to create imagery that captured Chelsea being creative while working with the tool that she built her wonderful business around, the Cricut Explore Air 2. We worked in a space that replicated the homey feel that Chelsea wanted to capture for this article feature, which fit well with the images taken in the UK while building the imagery for High Oak & Co.
