So as the weather starts to get warmer, new ideas start to emerge. Jason and I have been itching to do an outdoor photo shoot, and we think that now is the time! We’re looking for some friends who aren’t afraid to get in front of the camera, and have some fun. The best part is that we will be shooting straight film with a Hasselblad and Yaschica, which for you non-photography buffs, all you need to know is that they are sick cameras that produce amazing results. The name “Room for Squares” stems from the fact all the final pictures will be in a square format.

So here’s the deal:

1. If you have have a day off of work (mornings preferred) next week…
2. If you like to have fun….
3. And if you want to be able to take some sweet prints home FOR FREE….

…then there’s no reason why you shouldn’t hit us up about this awesome opportunity. This is a way for you to help us out by getting some practice in front of our outdoor set-up, and for us to help you out by giving you plenty of options for your new profile picture :)

Here are some examples of pictures Jason has taken with his Hasselblad to give you an idea of what’s to come!

For the past few months, I’ve been working with a good friend, Morgan on her new business adventure. Inspired by her love for gift-giving, Morgan decided to start her own company called Simply Because. Using her creativity and knack for shopping, she has arranged several gift baskets based on these main categories: corporate, collegiate, special occasions, holidays, and everyday.

I’ve been brought onboard as a graphic designer, photographer, web designer, marketer, and as an overall extra set of eyes. It’s been a fun experience, learning more about the business sides of things and having a part in this cool idea. It’s definitely been a learning experience, having to keep the bigger picture in mind, and making sure all the hypothetical situations have been considered and answered. There are still quite a few gray areas that need to be addressed, but I am really excited with the progress and potential Simply Because has.

We’re currently in the process of launching the website, and in the meantime we took some pictures of some of the baskets thus far. Cute, customized, and practical, these baskets are the perfect gift for several occasions. Stay tuned for the official launching of the website, but for now you can check out a sneak peak of some of Morgan’s baskets!
