When our friends at Virginia Countryside Photography contacted us about making a custom soap for their client packages we were beyond thrilled!
When we get a request we usually have a few questions to ask. We want to get the feel of your website and social media. We want to see your style and will usually ask what colors and fragrances you like. We ask if you want curls and sticks. We ask if you want glitter. We ask if you want plain or swirled.
As artists it's nice to have some creative freedom to interpret the customer's style. Melissa put all of her trust in us to create the right bar for her! We talked about her favorite colors and scents. I spent some time getting the feel for her work. She told me that she liked the glitter and the colors of our tropical breeze soap.
I noticed that Melissa posted a lot of sunrise pictures to her pages. And, Virginia is known for its beaches and mountains. It was perfectly fitting to create "Sweet Virginia Breeze" soap just for Melissa! The white, blue, teal, and coral go perfectly with her style and the scent is that of a crisp and clean babbling brook.
It was a pleasure working with Melissa and we hope her customers will enjoy their mini soaps as part of their client packages! Thank you, Melissa and Mark, for trusting us to work on your custom soap. Be sure to visit their website here and their facebook page here. We love working with small businesses!
Here's an excerpt from their website:
We are Mark & Melissa Anderson, full-time mommy and daddy, professor, director, and project manager, lovers of the beach, the mountains, blue crabs, and the reason you are here, photographers. Welcome to our little piece of the world. We are glad you are here! Virginia Countryside Photography was born out of our love for photographing our children. We have always enjoyed capturing great memories of our own family, but we have found true joy in capturing memories for others. It brings us great delight to take photos at family gatherings, and the images burn a hole in our SD cards as we race to upload them and share them with the world. This same passion has transcended to our photography clients, and we absolutely can’t wait to get back to our computers after a session and view the amazing images we were fortunate to capture.
We specialize in outdoor, natural light photography, and love capturing all types of memories ~ families, babies, pets, you name it, we love capturing it. We also specialize in indoor studio portraits using a combination of natural and studio lights, which create many beautiful options to capture your memories!
We offer many opportunities to capture your sweet moments, and shoot at various locations throughout Central Virginia. We have access to beautiful areas around the James River in Chesterfield County, but we love a good road trip and will travel to a location of your choice around the heart of Virginia.
