WHAT DO YOU MAKE/SELL? TELL US ABOUT YO’ SELF.
I’m a Designer Blogger and Photographer. I work with brands on creative campaigns and photoshoots. I’m American and I’ve lived in Canada for 8 years. I married a Canadian and we met at Brigham Young University. I have three kids: twin 7 year old boys and a 5 year old little girl.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU HAD YOUR BUSINESS?
I’ve been blogging for about 6 years. 4 of those years my blog has been more business.
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED?
I actually started on etsy. I had a shop called cocorosecouture. I noticed I enjoyed styling and shooting my product way more than actually making the product. So I took photography classes and used my natural ability in styling and it ended up with me blogging and working with brands. The turning point for my blog was attending ALT Summit. I met a bunch of creative brands and now I have great relationships with those brands and feel very fortunate to work on their campaigns.
WHO OR WHAT INSPIRES YOUR WORK?
I think Scandinavian interiors have a huge influence in my work along with a playful modern childlike influences. I’ve always been a bit of a dreamer as a kid so whimsical colourful things tend to inspire my work. I’m also influenced a lot by Palm Springs, Beach Towns, Carnivals and Travel. I love negative space mixed with color.
WHAT DO YOU DREAM FOR YOUR BUSINESS IN THE FUTURE?
I would love to work with specific Brands like Disney, Saguaro, and I’d love my own design show on HGTV A girl can dream!
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM AND WHY?
Instagram. I’m a highly visual person and I love how insta includes styling, photography, and marketing all in one platform.
HOW DO YOU PICK YOURSELF UP WHEN THINGS GO WRONG?
I tell myself I’m not a quitter and that tomorrow is a new chance to start over and change my attitude. I think keeping a true perspective of what’s really important in life is crucial to managing stress.
WHAT’S ONE THING NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT YOU? GIVE US AN INTERESTING FACT!
I used to be a dance teacher and choreographer. I’ll hear songs on the radio and think about how that would look as a dance.
IF YOU COULD HAVE ANY SUPER POWER WHAT WOULD IT BE?
Teleportation I’d love to whisk my family to Huntington Beach whenever I want to.
