Danielle Ontiveros, Founder and CEO, of Grab the Gold is about as sweet as they come!!! She is kind, humble, and generous ... SERIOUSLY... her company has helped feed half a million people through Feeding America.
I've loved these delicious treats for years and they have become part of my go-to snack, especially when I am on photoshoots. So I'm sure y'all can guess just how excited I was to book the gig to create some updated branding images for the company.
I worked closely with Grab the Gold's Marketing Specialist, Blake Hughes, to bring his creative direction to life. I found an excellent home through Home Studio in Gallatin, TN that was the perfect backdrop for some bright and airy lifestyle images. The premise behind these images was to showcase Danielle in a relatable, natural, and professional atmosphere. These kitchen shots did the trick!! Having a strong team helped a long day of shooting go extremely smooth. Danielle was an absolute joy to work with, and I only snuck a few Grab the Gold bars when no one was looking!
Lighting for this shoot consisted of two flash units. My main light, modified with a large umbrella and diffusion fabric, was placed camera left about 45 degrees from my subject. This large spread of light gave use the open airy look we were wanting. My second flash was placed camera right and had no modifier. I simply bounced it into the corner of the room to fill in some of the shadows that were being casted by my main light. Curious about bouncing light? You can get all the details by checking out my previous blog post.
