So what happens exactly, when you book in for a shoot with Vixen& Co?
You see, we don't just "take your photo" -you'll only blend in and look like everyone else.
Yep, everything we do is backed by strategy. Even our photoshoots.
First, we get you to fill out an in depth brand & personality questionnaire.
This is where we will learn everything we need to know to ensure your shoot is on brand, personalised & fun.
From there, we'll jump on a scheduled phone call the old school way and swim even deeper into your brand goals, purpose & expectations.
We help you with wardrobe selection, complementary props, shoot location & overall vibe of your shoot.
Yep that's right, we hold your hand every step of the way to make sure you are ready, excited and prepared for your amazing new brand imagery, because well, that's just how we do things around here.

Our weekend mood! Working on some super exciting stuff this weekend that we can’t wait to share with you 🌞
Do you ever look back and see glimpses of what prepared you for now? Earlier I was thinking about how sweet bespoke children’s stories are as gifts, and then I suddenly remembered the book I wrote and illustrated for a friend’s little boy. -
The rhyming story was all about the little boy being a knight and coming up against trials on route to save a princess. At the start, the boy was sad and anxious about being small (unlike the other big, strong, and fast knights) - but by the end he realises being small has its advantages and, in fact, it helped him save the princess. -
I wasn’t sure if I still had the original copy on my computer but I managed to dig it out. This quote is from the beginning, when the little boy’s dad, ‘Sir Daddy’, is encouraging his son. -
Finding the story, and reading it through, has really made me smile. Partly because I can see where I’ve made improvements since writing it (six years ago!), but also because it made me see all the little projects I have worked on in the past that have led to where I am today. -
If someone had told me back then I would be running a business where I get to write, draw, paint, and design for other people, in six years time...well, I probably would have laughed ridiculously hard - to the point of trying to inhale whilst still laughing (you know, when the inevitable snort comes out)! -
Can you think of something that seemed insignificant, at the time, but actually gave you valuable experience for your business or life now? -

“If your dreams don’t scare you, they are too small”.
A great quote in a season of reflection and resolution, as I think about my own big dreams.
After 2 years as a self-employed Content Creator, I’m shifting my focus to help lifestyle brands with their marketing.
Marketing that’s super creative, but results driven and effective. That not only increases profits, but maintains a brand’s authenticity. I want to help founders on a mission, who create purpose-driven businesses with integrity and soul. Brands that care.
Together, we can start to make a difference.
That’s the dream.
Founders, if this resonates with you, let’s talk; chat about your big vision, changing the world and working on the big dream together!
you might have already seen it on my stories but I‘ve received my hobonichi weeks planner for 2020 today and I loooove it so much😍! I got the nuance pink one and I can’t wait to start decorating it! I‘ll definitely use the kit above for the first week because it‘s my faaav

#dettydecember is around the corner and you don’t want to be caught unfresh.
Get your bag collection popping sis 💁🏽♀️.
👉🏻👉🏻👉🏻Let me introduce you to someone that can help you connect with people on a deeper level.
If you’ve watched television in recent years, you’ve seen this guys work. This is Jeff Bartsch. (@storygreenlight)
Jeff is a video editor living in LA. He works on shows like American Ninja Warrior, Super Nanny, stuff for ABC, NBC, Universal, Disney, Apple, etc. A lot of his work revolves around pulling stories out of these series and creating something that keeps us captivated and gets us to start to root for somebody because we feel connected to them.
Where am I going with this? Well, you have the opportunity to create things that get people to root for you and your work. I mean, think about it. The story you tell and the work you put out there starts to mean something when someone says “I get where she’s coming from!” Or “This guy understands me!”
Jeff has some fantastic resources for telling better stories as creatives. We had a chance to catch up and spend some good time talking while I was at VidSummit and I think with as much as I’ve learned from Jeff, you all could learn some too.
So go follow his IG and check out his YouTube channel. You’ll be glad you did!

Are you waiting for somebody to give you permission to make something?! (Image by the incredible @emilyonlife!) •
This post struck me so hard when I saw it yesterday. I know SO MANY creatives that are waiting for a publisher, company, brand, record label, etc. to feel like their dreams can come true.
2 things to think about. 1. These people run businesses. If you’re not showing up consistently for the people that you’re cultivating as your community, then what makes you think that they’re going to trust that you’ll show up consistently for them? These people come when you have something that creates a benefit for BOTH of you. •
2. You’re letting your guess of what these people will be looking for dictate what you’re creating, and because you don’t enjoy it as much, you do less of it! Make things that will resonate with the audience you want to reach! This not only helps you NOW - but it also helps them later, because they’ll now know where they can help market you, or where you can help them!
Park your car in your own driveway and soon you’ll see people asking for a ride!! LET’S GOOOO! Give me a 👍 if you’re in!!
when your friends don't buy your art....bye. 👋⠀

🖤I know you didn’t start your own business to spend 4 hours or more a day guessing and checking and tweaking the crap out of a shop on a platform you don’t even own. 🖤i know started this thing because you have OTHER THINGS in your life you want to enjoy. Like for example, watching “I want it that way” 40 times a day on youtube or, i don’t know, hanging out with your kid or something equally wonderful. (Hey, whatever blows your skirt up!)
🖤THIS IS WHY i am never going to shut up about maximizing opportunities, leveraging what’s available and making things work for you - you have so many jobs in your business but you have just as many things outside of your business that you want to spend time on.
🖤So whatever we can do to free up time in your business, we must! Because those backstreet boy videos aren’t going to watch themselves and I doubt your kid is going to either, so this is why I am all about making Etsy (a tool I know the majority of you are using) work harder for you than you work for it because the rest of your life is depending on something taking up less of your time, and this one is easy. I’ve already figured it out and hundreds of my students have proven it, too. So if you want my help making etsy work for you, click the link in my bio to get started.
It’s been such a treat to have had the chance to take a mental break from “producing” and feeling the pressures of needing to constantly make new work due to social media. .
I haven’t created anything new in a while now, and I’ve barely opened my laptop in this past week and a half. I didn’t know how much I needed a break until this big move had forced me to do so. .
A little over a week ago, we packed up everything we owned and drove a couple hours to our temporary summer home in northwestern, CT to be with family for a few months as we transition to Portland, Maine. Taking an entire week to unpack, sort, donate and sell a bunch of goods we had been lugging around for years felt incredibly refreshing, and took away a good amount of stress, and it honestly felt like a mini vacation, even though we didn’t travel anywhere far. I took the time to sort through neglected mail and paperwork (the things literally no one wants to do) and everything else that had been piling up. For a few years I was telling myself, “I’ll get to it later.” but just kept ignoring it - but it’s not like these little things go away! .
Taking the time to really go through everything has set us up for a fresh start leading into the summer months, and being surrounded by the woods has been a sweet mood booster - I’m entering today with a clearer mind ✨
If you can, take a few days to sort, and reflect - take the time to remove the clutter, both visual and mental clutter that you’ve been pushing aside for so long. It might not feel like the ideal vacation, but I promise that you’ll feel a whole lot lighter 🌞

I’ve been up since 4 am. A shrill scream of panic from my Brooks, because he couldn’t get his covers right 🤦🏻♀️. I’m not a morning person, but there’s nothing like a good ole fashioned scream to get one motivated. I’m one of those that wake easy and sleepless slumber is apparently my favorite past time 😩. Since I was up, I decided to be a productive adult and look at my bank statements. There’s nothing like a yearly auto renewal program that you forgot to cancel because it’s been a year. Here’s me $200 later 😑. I’ll be making a phone call today ☎️... good vibes it goes well 😬. It’s Friday right? This sure feels like Monday. I think I need another one of those Sunsphere drinks from @drinkknox 😋. It’s always 5 o’clock somewhere 🍹. Happy Friday beautiful people 😘.
