Hello, monogram friends! This blog post is a snapshot of what a day in the life of a Marleylilly photographer looks like!

    My day starts with a freshly brewed cup of coffee on the way to the studio. I'll settle in, check messages, and review the daily workload. Mondays start with a marketing meeting. Then my team breaks out into our own Creative team meeting. With the agenda set, it's time to dive into the work! I will then head back down to the studio to start any new tasks from the marketing team.

    The morning is usually packed with photo requests that may include selecting monogrammed outfits from our product racks, working with our videographer on content, or even steaming garments to ensure they look amazing on camera. I have a custom pink and green grocery cart to grab all the things I need! During any given day we photograph everything from monogrammed sneakers to monogrammed keychains, bags, and clothing. Collaboration is key, and input/feedback from our marketing team members is crucial. Whether it's images for emails, the website, or events, every photo request is a chance to showcase the uniqueness of our brand.

By noon, I'll take a brief pause to eat lunch, sometimes a homemade lunch or the guilty pleasure of ordering Chick-fil-A. The afternoon is a great time to wrap up marketing projects and focus more on new products. I work with a stylist who brings extra creativity and sometimes fills in as a model. I'm always looking for good nails around the studio!

As afternoon rolls along, my focus shifts to ensuring all photo requests are completed. A sneak peek into upcoming tasks helps me prepare for the days ahead. It's my responsibility to maintain a clean and safe studio, so I'll end the day with a routine of turning off equipment and neatly wrapping up loose cables.

At Marleylilly, every day is a creative adventure, and I'm grateful to be part of a team that values my work and input. Cheers to capturing the spirit of monograms, one click at a time!
