Styled Product Photo Shoot – Max & Charlie Co

Life Style_Max&Charlie_Apr19-67

Welcome back! In this blog post, we’re going on a journey with the wonderful Max and Charlie Company and their delectable cookies, with imagery from our styled product photo shoot that they will be using in their online marketing.

This shoot was done on a sunny morning in early autumn and allowed us to use plenty of natural light in the images. You can almost taste the deliciousness.

The animated cookies also played along nicely with our use of mainly white backgrounds, and incorporating some lifestyle imagery into play.

Just think about it… a real home-baked cookie decorated to perfection. That’s what you’ll find at The Max and Charlie Company based in Sandton, Johannesburg. Or, you could choose the DIY option which includes ready-made cookies, and all the decorating elements for some crafting fun.

With a product shoot like this, it’s always great to get down to the detail, and Kate knows all about detail! With each cookie individually handcrafted, I decided to focus in on these aspects to show how much time and love goes into making these beauties.

We used some simple styling options to add emotion to the imagery but also to keep the heroes in the spotlight. It was also lucky that Kate has a bit of a decorating habit and we had tons of options to play around with.

While I like to keep the use of props to a minimum, it can’t be denied that they add a lot of character into the photographs when used correctly.
