But, there is a whole other side of my business that we don’t always talk about here on the blog. From time to time, local business owners will approach me to help them style their products for photoshoots.  They’re looking for new marketing photos and they know that Mint can style their products to look their very best in new and interesting ways. This is an aspect of my business that I love, It is so fun to be able to help other business owners make their products stand out.

In addition to my styling services, over the past few years I’ve built up some really great relationships with local area photographers that I collaborate with all the time, so I can always recommend a really amazing photographer. So you can see all aspects of my business, today I’m sharing one of these styled shoots with you!

For this shoot, I had the pleasure of working for Leanne, owner of Bento Picnic here in Austin.  Leanne reached out to me to see if I could help her style her yummy and healthy plates in several set ups.  


The first style we chose was this baby shower scene, because Bento Picnic’s food are a perfect fit for an upscale baby shower. I started my part by creating the backdrop out of floral greenery hoops.  Whenever I’m styling for any event or photoshoot, I think it’s really important to bring a little bit of nature in. I created these out of faux greenery vines, and then added a pretty pink rose.  I then attached white onesies with gold letters spelling out B-A-B-Y!

If you’re planning a baby shower soon, you should consider sending your invitations via Paperless Post. We love using Paperless post for our events because they’re beautiful, customizable, and eco-friendly!
I think this one is so elegant and goes perfectly with our color scheme.

I used crisp white linens with white and gold stands and hand lettered food labels. I created a sweet mimosa bar on my table with champagne, flute style glasses, and freshly squeezed orange juice.
