Brand Lifestyle Product Photography – Injoya Dog Products

Lifestyle product photography - photo of a small dog with a dog toy, by Allie Siarto & Co. Photography, Lansing, Michigan commercial photographer

This commercial product lifestyle photoshoot turned into quite an adventure—we had scheduled it at my own house, and the power went out across the city just before everyone was set to arrive. On top of this, we were fostering a cat that had been living in my office, so she had hang out in an upstairs bathroom away from our own cats, who had to hide in the laundry room while the dogs came over. Animals everywhere!

Luckily, my lights are battery powered.

But then we got thrown for another loop when the school called to cancel in the middle of the school day (they were without power too). Luckily Jeff was able to go get the girls, and they were excited to come home to dogs.

Many thanks to our doggie models for showing off the Injoya products in use, and to everyone involved who kept calm as we went forward without power.

East Lansing’s Graduate Hotel School Spirits Drinks + Food Photography

I’ve been doing ongoing lifestyle campaign work for Graduate Hotel in East Lansing since last year (you may remember my rooftop bar photos or my photoshoot with Zeke the Wonder Dog). This time, the team contacted me with a last minute opportunity to take photos of their first School Spirits Dinner—a four course meal with drink pairings.

This photoshoot gave me the freedom to jump in and do what I wanted—the event was happening, and the team simply saw an opportunity to get some shots of the food and drinks to market future events. I challenged myself to give them a mix of photos that showed the vibe of the hotel, showed off the food + drinks and left space to add text in social media.

All of this had to happen in the span of about 45 minutes using what was already there without getting in the way of the team that was actively serving up food to guests.

I literally used a black napkin tucked behind the mirror to take the shot below.

Studio Fashion Photography Shoot – Lansing Commercial Photographer

My friend from high school (and a very talented art director), Steph Smith, reached out to me about flying in from Arkansas to work on a styled fashion photoshoot together. The plan was to go bold with colors, pulling inspiration from the colorful style of photographer Camila Falquez. If you follow my typical work, you’ll know that my style generally trends toward natural colors, so this was a fun way to get creatively “outside of the box” from my norm.

Many thanks to models Olivia Knoy and Cayla Johnson for joining us for this shoot.
