What were the goals of the makers of Sheree Harvest for their product photography?

Sheree Harvest was looking to overhaul their product photography on the website to match the brand they were seeking. LaToya chose my Storefront kit which included the basic images that she would need to outfit her website. 

What kind of look was LaToya looking for in her product images?

When LaToya described to me the look that she was after, she told me she had visions of a romantic date night. She wanted her images to embody the lifestyle surrounding her wine, with dark moody images and props that would compliment her wine.

When I sent her a proposal with inspiration images, they all included dark backgrounds and props with dark earthy tones.

What kind of props did you use for this wine product session?

I wanted to make sure that we kept the wine centric to the image, but put it in context of the lifestyle that we were trying to portray. When sourcing props from my own collection and shopping, I kept the dark tones in mind, while also keeping in mind the different foods that complimented wine. Here is a list of props that I included in Sheree Harvest’s shoot:

  • Cutting boards
  • Dinner napkins
  • Red Roses
  • Cork screw
  • Sheree Harvest branded wine glasses
  • Fruits: Grapes, Strawberries, Raspberries
  • Charcuterie board fixings: Prosciutto, salami, parmesan cheese, goat cheese, baguette, crackers
  • Chocolate
  • Packaging

What did your product shot list look like?

Because the primary focus of this shoot was for website images, we needed to make sure that LaToya had all the images that are necessary for an e-commerce website. I created her the following images:

  • Banner images
  • E-Commerce images of each wine on white
  • Styled images of each wine
  • Customized stock photography of the wine
  • Summary image of the full collection, and smaller collections
  • Wine in its packaging

Take a look at some of our favorites from the Sheree Harvest Wine product session. LaToya has the images she needs to create a very cohesive website that speaks to her ideal client.
