Styled Stock Society Member Spotlight: Debbie of The Spotted Olive
We love seeing how our members use our styled stock photos and learning more about their businesses! So each month we're featuring one of our Styled Stock Society members – giving you a little peek at who they are, what they do, and how they are elevating their visual content with the help of their Styled Stock Society membership.
This month we're excited to feature Debbie of The Spotted Olive!
1) Tell us a little about what you do!
I’m an invitation & stationery designer; I create pretty paper for happy events.
2) Who do you do it for?
Anyone who loves pretty personalized paper goods! I have quite a few wedding customers, but as my product line has been expanding from invitations into a variety of personalized stationery items like note cards, notepads, recipe cards, and art prints, my customer base has been becoming more diverse.
3) What’s one piece of advice you would go back and tell yourself when you were first starting your business OR what’s one piece of advice you would give someone else is just starting their own business?
Find the balance between your work life and your personal life. It’s so easy to get lost in working all the time when you run your own business. Be sure you make the time to take care of yourself, enjoy your life and have fun!
4) What has been your favorite Styled Stock Society collection thus far?
It’s hard to choose just one! One of my favorite collections thus far has been the Navy & White Desktop. I loved the way one of my invitation collections worked so perfectly with that styled stock collection. And, of course, Celebrations Vol. 1, since I had a tiny collaboration role in that fun collection.
5) Tell us a little bit about how you're using styled stock photos for your business?
I use Styled Stock Society photos to showcase my designs and products on my website and social media. They have made my life easier by saving me time so I don't always have to take photos of every product I want to promote as well as providing me with wonderful content for social media. The photos are always so beautiful and great quality and work well with my brand and designs.
