It’s hard to believe, but we’re in the home stretch of 2015! Over the next few weeks, you’ll start to see photos from Collage.com’s holiday photo shoot. We won’t start playing holiday jingles now, but we did want to share how our photo shoots come together.

With so many new products added to the Collage.com lineup this year, our photo director Thayer Newport worked overtime to get the holiday shoot ready. Lining up models, coming up with a theme, securing studio time, and ordering products for the shoot takes almost a month’s work of solid work – but we think it was really worth it!
“A lot of thought goes into a customer designing the perfect gift with Collage.com’s tools,” Thayer said. “For this photo shoot, I wanted that handmade, personal aesthetic to come through. For me, that meant really taking care to make our sets fun and creative.”
We worked with a young model as part of the shoot. “She had a lot of personality,” Thayer says. “She was really fun to work with. At one point, she even started dancing with the photographer in the studio while we were building a set!”
Over the next few weeks, we hope you’ll enjoy some of our holiday photos as much as we enjoyed taking them. Happy Holidays!
