You all know that I love to style up a storm and sometimes I have to stop myself from over crowding an image, then there are times when I purposely set out to create something simple and manage to pull it off ๐Ÿ™† . We put this simple set up together for @copiousbags a couple of weeks back and even tho there is not a lot going on here, there is ALOT going on here - does that make sense? Probably not.....let me explain. . So you only have a selection of five objects here, six if you include the background and two of those objects are the same so how do you make it stand out? . Well first of all that background is doing a lot of the work here, it is dramatic and is creating a good frame for the centre piece. I am obsessed with this page from the latest Vogue mag that has this bold black print on it, this combined with the backdrop and already its popping! . Add some softness with the cloth and fill those bags with salty pretzels and you are almost done. We added the wooden bowl of salt as well to tie in the brown of the pretzels which makes them more dominant, finally the salt (of course) and a little sprinkling of smashed pretzels for extra texture and voila๐Ÿ‘Œ . So the keys to making a simple image a scroll stopping one....texture, layers and a key well thought out prop selection #winning . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #foodstyling #foodphotography #foodieflatlays #foodforthought #foodblogger #mykitchentable #lifeandthyme #gatherandfeast #firstweeat #foodblogfeed #foodstories #foodstylingandphotography #foodstylistlife #texture #aquietstyle #simpleandstill #thesimpleeveryday #seeksimplicity #livebeautifully #simplepleasures #amomentintime #momentsofmine
Midweek Mojito anyone? . I have spoken many times before about the difficulties of working with ice, but I just love the way it looks so I try and apply patience and speed all at the same time when it comes to these ice cold creations. . I guess if you are just using the ice by itself then it's not too bad but when you are trying to add other ingredients in the mix that is when things get tricky. . I find the easiest way to get this done is to have it completely planned out before you start, have everything you need already cut up and ready to go and use little tongs to place some of the items in. . For this image I built a firm foundation for the bottle first then added the other goodies around to support it, you don't want to add the bottle at the end for the whole thing to slide away๐Ÿ˜ข . Lucky there are @cleancolliveofficial Mojitos on hand to get you through these stressful situations๐Ÿ˜‰๐ŸŠ๐Ÿน . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #foodstylingandphotography #drinks #cocktaillover #cocktailhour #mixeddrinks #mojito #sugarfree #drinkclean #drinksonice #healthy #creative #creativelifehappylife #creativesontherise #creativejourney #creativeprocess #mycreativebiz #borntobecreative #createeveryday #thehandmadeparade #creativityfound #creativecommunity #makersgonnamake #creativesontherise
Trying out a new techniqueโ˜ . I love the lines and layers of this image that we created for our friends at @sphynx recently. I was going to make this just one dimensional with the different coloured pinks placed around but I thought why not take it to the next level.... . SO if you could see through all these pieces of card you would see that there are all sorts of objects underneath holding them up and creating that gap between the different pieces. The first layer only has a small gap then the gap gets larger as you layer to give the 3D appearance. . Such a simple way to create something interesting that now has depth and many of those all important layers which are all working together to frame that razor. Also it is just a great feeling when you run with an idea and it turns out exactly as you had pictured in your mind....this is not always the case๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ’• . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #creative #creativelifehappylife #creativesontherise #creativejourney #creativeprocess #mycreativebiz #borntobecreative #createeveryday #thehandmadeparade #creativityfound #creativecommunity #naturalbeauty #beautyproducts #beautyaddict #beautyblogger #beautyjunkie #livingincolour #coloraddict #lifeiscolorful #coloryourworld #colormehappy #ihavethisthingwithcolor #howihue
๐Ÿ”ฅHOT OFF THE WORK DESK๐Ÿ”ฅ . We have been working away behind the scenes on some pretty cool projects lately and we have sooo much new work to show you over the coming weeks. . This little set up is a recent shot that we styled and photographed for @theherbandspicemill of their Sugar Crave Champagne Gummie Bears. Yes that's right I said Champagne gummie bears, when pick n mix and champagne collide and let me tell you they do not disappoint! .

But first coffeeโ˜ . The best way to start a new week, a freshly brewed cup of coffee with a side of brand new work that we created for our new client @copiousbags . This project just has endless possibilities as far as styling is concerned as these bags can be used to store any number of delicious treats but it made sense to start with coffee of courseโ˜•โ˜• . We have a jam packed week ahead of us, reuniting with one of our original clients for some fun interior work then we are moving onto some cocktails, sounds like a pretty good way to spend the week if you ask me! . Hope you all have a creative and productive week ahead๐Ÿ˜€ . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #foodstyling #foodphotography #foodie #foodisfuel #foodieflatlays #foodforthought #foodblogger #mykitchentable #lifeandthyme #gatherandfeast #firstweeat #foodblogfeed #foodstories #foodstylingandphotography #foodstylistlife #coffeetime #coffeelover #shopsmallnz #smallbusinesslife #creativepreneur #mycreativebiz #girlboss #madeinnz
Well we were talking about Rose at the beginning of the week and nothing has changed, we are still firmly on the Rose band wagon as we start to celebrate the weekend. . This indoor picnic set up is just the ticket to end a majorly busy week, I'll take some of that cheese too please! . I hope you all have a delicious glass of something in front of you, happy Friday friends!๐Ÿพ๐Ÿง€๐Ÿท๐Ÿ‘Œ Image styling and photography for @tepawines . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #wine #nzwine #winelover #wineoclock #wineandfood #wineanddine #winelife #winemoments #roseallday #yeswayrosรฉ #foodphotography #foodie #foodieflatlays #foodforthought #foodblogger #mykitchentable #lifeandthyme #gatherandfeast #firstweeat #foodblogfeed #foodstories #foodstylingandphotography #foodstylistlife
Another #throwbackthursday this time one for the men๐Ÿ‘† . It is not often that we style solely for the men in our lives so this shoot for @beardedstorenz was an exciting change of pace. We used a very masculine colour palette with loads of texture and we added a little warmth with the addition of some wood - no pink or florals in sight๐Ÿ–ค . We created some pretty major banner #flatlays for this project and had the absolute pleasure of arranging all those little grooming accessories into these layouts, there were so many amazing little gap filling props to play with!โœ‚ . So there you have it, we not only style for women's brands we are more than happy to work with men's brands as well, so if you have a product that you think would benefit from a bit of #styleandsnap then please get in touch, we would love to chat๐Ÿ“ฑ๐Ÿ’Œ . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #flatlay #revisededitionflatlay #flatlaystyle #flatlaysquad #flatlayphotography #flatlaythenation #thingsarrangedneatly #mensgrooming #mensaccessories #menstyle #bearded #beardgang #creativelifehappylife #creativesontherise #creativejourney #creativeprocess #mycreativebiz #borntobecreative #createeveryday #creativityfound
How weird is it to be styling for a summer theme while it is the middle of winter here in NZ, very weird as I arrange my popsicles and ice and look out the window at the side ways rain and gale force winds๐ŸŒง . This is actually a throwback to last years summer shoot that we worked on for our friends @sphynx but we have been working on a brand new summer themed shoot this week and I have to say it is a nice little escape from our chilly winter daysโ›„โ„ . Getting ice and popsicles to play nicely together in a shot however is not the easiest of tasks and takes a good dose of patience which if we are being honest is not really my area of expertise. . Persistence pays off in this case tho and we finally managed to get everything in place and get the photo snapped before it all melted away. .

๐Ÿ”ฅHOT OFF THE WORKDESK๐Ÿ”ฅ . Brand new work that we have been absolutely dying to share with you for the team at @tqc.skincare , what is better than getting to experiment with some #darkphotography ? Dark photography with a full Art Deco theme, yuss!๐Ÿ™† . I absolutely love all the elegance and old school glamour of art deco and it was fun indeed to bring all that to life for this exciting new brand. . We can't wait to show you more from this collection so make sure you stay tuned right here!๐Ÿ–ค๐Ÿ–ค . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #beauty #naturalbeauty #beautyproducts #beautyaddict #skincare #beautyblogger #beautyjunkie #artdeco #darkandmoody #darkphotography #photography #beautyindarkness #darkmood #soulful_moments #desaturated #darkandlight #shopsmallnz #smallbusinesslife #creativepreneur #mycreativebiz #girlboss #madeinnz
How fresh is this?๐Ÿ‘† . This little creation was from the last round of images that we created for @skinjuice and I am excited to tell you there are more on the way๐Ÿ™† . I love working with this beautiful packaging it is so refreshing to just be able to splash around some bright bold colour and this little fruity arrangement is not too shabby either! . We used the white square in the middle as the remainder of the images had a bit of a square theme going on and we wanted to tie that in here as well. I love the contrast of the straight lines and the more relaxed fruit spilling over the side and I am obsessed with using citrus peel in these types of set ups latley. This time I just rolled it up but it looks great in a long spiral too, it's all about the details people, all about the details! . Watch this space for more colourful Skin Juice creations over the next few weeksโค๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #colour #livingincolour #coloraddict #lifeiscolorful #coloryourworld #colormehappy #ihavethisthingwithcolor #howihue #happycolours #brightandbeautiful #beauty #naturalbeauty #beautyproducts #beautyaddict #skincare #beautyblogger #beautyjunkie #creativelifehappylife #creativesontherise #creativejourney #creativeprocess #mycreativebiz #borntobecreative
Well I know it's only Monday but any day is a good day for wine am I right? . This image was snapped a few weeks ago when we set up a full grazing table outside on our deck, yes it is winter here, the sun showed its face occasionlly but otherwise it was generally chilly, but the finished images have summer written all over them๐ŸŒ… . This was something a little new for me and I have to say it was an afternoon well spent. Building this delicious table full of beautiful food, arranging little floral bouquets to go on the table and of course pouring beautiful @tepawines to match the setting๐Ÿพ๐Ÿท . We got a number of shots from this scene including these close up shots of the wines along with some hand in frame shots and of course the full setting, swipe more๐Ÿ‘‰ . Although it wasn't summer I was totally transported to the warmer months feeling like I could just pull up a chair and dig in, that is what creating images is all about - taking people to a different place and creating a situation that you (the viewer) most definitley want to be a part of. .

I thought I would kick off this week by popping in to say Hi and welcome to our new followers ๐Ÿ– . Here are a few little facts about @RevisedEditionstyle to get you up to speed with what you may have missed.... . Revised Edition is run by me๐Ÿ‘† My name is Nikki and I have been a keen creative for as long as I can remember. I left my full time job a few years ago now to build a career that I was actually passionate about and where I could use my creativity to the fullest, I have certainly found that! This is my full time job, day in, day out creating and photographing beautiful imagery for you guys. . Some of you may not know this but waaay back in the day before Revised Edition styled and photographed products we upcycled old furniture, the brighter and bolder the better. It was a great way to be creative and it definitley lead me to where I am today. . We have been in the product styling game for just over two years now (phew that time has gone so fast) and we are loving every minute. We have had the privilege to work with so many amazing clients big and small and we have a lot more to come. . If you have any questions about our services or would just llike to say "Hey" do not hesitate to get in touch, we would love to hear from you. . Enjoy your week everyone๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ™‚ . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #creative #creativelifehappylife #creativesontherise #creativejourney #creativeprocess #mycreativebiz #borntobecreative #createeveryday #thehandmadeparade #creativityfound #creativecommunity #makersgonnamake #smallbusinessnz #supportsmallbiz #shopsmallnz #smallbusinesslife #creativepreneur #mycreativebiz #girlboss #nzbusiness #madeinnz #nzphotographer #nzstylist
New and inventive ways with fruit๐Ÿ‰๐ŸŠ๐Ÿ‹ . Keeping those knife skills in check with this little creation of very precisely cut fruit for the new image collection we styled and photographed for @cleancollectiveofficial . First of all finding a watermelon around here coming into winter provided some challanges but as you can see we got there in the end and were so excited by how these images turned out. . Friday arvo is the perfect time to practice your own fruit cutting skills, for a cocktail of course. If you haven't yet tried these delicious Clean Collective mojitos you need to get your hands on some stat! . Happy Friday friends๐Ÿน๐Ÿน . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #drinks #cocktaillover #cocktailhour #mixeddrinks #mojito #sugarfree #drinkclean #healthy #foodstyling #foodphotography #foodie #foodisfuel #foodforthought #creativelifehappylife #creativesontherise #creativejourney #creativeprocess #mycreativebiz #borntobecreative #createeveryday #creativityfound #creativecommunity #makersgonnamake
Hands up who remembers this shot?๐Ÿ–๐Ÿ– . This is an oldie for sure but I think it also still fits into the category of goodie as well. I put this image together a year or so ago now and at the time it was one of the largest #flatlays I had ever created - if only I knew what was to come.... . This was when I was just starting to experiment with the angled flatlay and having the objects going across the frame in a diagonal instead of straight on. Once I got the hang of this style I went all in and next minute everything was angled, full framed and well aligned. . I was definitley onto something here as I still love this style but I think it looks best when it is mixed in with other more simple images and styles in my Instagram feed so that my feed doesn't turn into a cluster-you-know-what๐Ÿ˜‰ . Producing styled images on a daily basis makes it so important to keep trying new styles and evolving your own personal style, this is one of the lucky few images that still represents my style today, there are so many that do not and would never get the chance to grace my Instagram feed again, funny to take a stroll down memory lane though๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ’– . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #creative #creativelifehappylife #creativesontherise #creativejourney #creativeprocess #mycreativebiz #borntobecreative #createeveryday #thehandmadeparade #creativityfound #creativecommunity #makersgonnamake #smallbusinessnz #supportsmallbiz #shopsmallnz #smallbusinesslife #creativepreneur #mycreativebiz #girlboss #madeinnz #nzphotographer #nzstylist
Hot off the work deskโ˜ . We loved working on this new campagin with @cloudninecreativenz to showcase their brand new jewellery collection, and what a collection it is! These particular pendants were quite small so we used the floral arrangement at the top of the image so that it looks pretty but the necklaces are still centre stage! We used a mixture of light and dark backgrounds, tying in the colours from some of the jewellery and continued the floral theme throughout to bring all the images together.

Where did you get those props?โ˜ . That is a question that I get asked often so I decided to write a blog post about it - click the link in my bio to have a read if you haven't already. In my post I talk about how I think it is important to have a mixture of new "investment pieces" and pieces from second hand stores in your prop arsenal. Investment pieces are those must-have items that you know you are going to get a lot of use out of, something that really makes an impact on your image. In this shot that we styled and photographed for @wildfennelnz my investment peices are the knife, the linen (hello, literally just about all of my images use those linens). The ramekins are not second hand either but they certainly were not expensive. All the other props in the image have come from my pantry and garden, I mean potatoes, a prop, totally... if it is fitting for the scene. The message being that you don't have to spend a fortune on props to create a great image, check out what you have around you and get creative. My favourite props are my linen napkins and teatowels for sure, what are yours? ๐ŸŒถ๐Ÿฅ”๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿƒ . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #foodstyling #foodphotography #foodie #foodisfuel #foodieflatlays #foodforthought #foodblogger #mykitchentable #lifeandthyme #gatherandfeast #firstweeat #foodblogfeed #foodstories #foodstylingandphotography #foodstylistlife #flatlay #revisededitionflatlay #flatlaystyle #flatlaysquad #flatlayphotography #flatlaythenation #thingsarrnagedneatly #photographyprops
Simplicity is beautiful right? Well yes I certainly think so, but simplicity has not always been top of mind when creating my images - in fact quite the opposite... When I first entered the world of product styling I was all about getting as many items in an image as I could, making hugely complicated #flatlays with loads of colours and textures (still on the texture band wagon though) and it took me a long time to realise that it only takes a small selection of well thought out items and a good concept to make an image POP!๐ŸŽŠ . @RevisedEditionstyle has been working with @sphynx for a couple of years now and over that time we have simplified the images to really focus on the razor and tell the story of how it would be used, like in this image for example, a day at the beach๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒŠ . First of all how good are these colours?! They have summer written aaall over them. Then we added some other beach essentials, magazine, sunglasses, moisturiser, headphones and of course your portable razor. The shells, orange and the bronzer are all there as supporting items to help paint the picture, also the pop of colour from the orange and the glasses helps create those serious #summertimevibes . Showing restraint when it comes to creating an image is hard but stick with it, good things take time. Also if you are still reading this insanely long caption then thank you, you did stick with it and I appreciate that!โœŒ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ‰๐Ÿ•ถ . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #beauty #naturalbeauty #beautyproducts #beautyaddict #skincare #beautyblogger #beautyjunkie #creative #creativelifehappylife #creativesontherise #creativejourney #creativeprocess #mycreativebiz #borntobecreative #createeveryday #thehandmadeparade #creativityfound #creativecommunity #makersgonnamake #tipsandtricks #flatlaythenation
Kick starting your Monday with a healthy dose of greens, I feel instantly healthier just looking at this photo, shame it doesn't quite work like that.... . We need a good boost to start the week as we have many, many projects to get through in the next few days. We are working with a new client today on something a little fun and celebratory, then we have a triple batch of beauty images to produce, some exciting food shots and some other small bits and peices to fit in and around all that. Phew, better get cracking. Have a great week everyone!

Fruity Fridayโ˜๐ŸŠ๐Ÿ‹ Keeping these images for @cleancollectiveofficial simple but still interesting and eye catching means getting creative, lucky that's just what I love to do!

When was the last time you whipped up a batch of mulled wine? Well I had not done it for a long time but given this cooler weather and the fact that I had all this delicious @tepawines on hand for our shoot we decided to it was only fitting. First of all the smell in the house is enough to make you want to just have a pot of mulled wine on the stove 24/7, all that spice and orange is such a winning combo and perfect for the winter months. To our wine we added orange, ginger, bay leaves, cinnamon, star anise, nutmeg, cloves and little bit of honey. Leave to warm through until all the flavours have had time to get to know each other, grab a mug, fill it up and cozy up on the couch with your blanket....now doesn't that sound good?!๐Ÿท๐ŸŠ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿ“ . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #wine #nzwine #winelover #wineoclock #wineandfood #wineanddine #winelife #winemoments #mulledwine #slowliving #aquietstyle #simpleandstill #thesimpleeveryday #theartofslowliving #seeksimplicity #livebeautifully #flashesofdelight #simplepleasures #amomentintime #momentsofmine #mycreativebiz #creativelifehappylife #createeveryday
This looks like the ideal dinner to meโ˜ I love salads and I am always looking for ways to make them new and interesting, this colourful little combo was something we created a few weeks back for @cervenavenison but this mix is something that I recreate quite alot. Obviously that beautiful venison is the hero here accompanied by some roasted beetroot, orange, shaved fennel, mixed greeens and toasted walnuts all dressed up in an orange vinaigarette, super simple, healthy and most importantly delicious!!๐Ÿ‹๐ŸŠ๐Ÿƒ . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #foodstyling #foodphotography #foodie #foodisfuel #foodieflatlays #foodforthought #foodblogger #mykitchentable #lifeandthyme #gatherandfeast #firstweeat #foodblogfeed #foodstories #foodstylingandphotography #foodstylistlife #smallbusiness #supportsmallbiz #shopsmallnz #smallbusinesslife #creativepreneur #mycreativebiz #girlboss #madeinnz
Gotta love a good moodboardโ˜ . This particular one is a major flashback to the time I did some work for @smitten_design_textiles all those colours and textures got me like๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ . This is an old background that I haven't used in awhile either but after looking at this I think I might have to put it back in rotation, it just works so perfectly with this selection. And of course there are my trusty walnutsโ˜one of my most versatile and well used props, I have had these things for so long and I am still working out of the orginal bag that I brought which cost me like $3-4, now that's pretty good bang for your buck!

I wanted to just take a moment to say thank you. Thank you, for following, commenting and liking my posts. Thanks for visiting me at the markets. Thanks for getting a bit of Smitten in your lives. It gives me encouragement, which has meant that I just keep going and doing what I love! Sometimes I get so full of self doubt and think Iโ€™m insane to be attempting what I do, hand printing textiles is a labour of love โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ Iโ€™m sure many of you can relate to this! So Iโ€™ve decided to get some designs into production which means they will be available by the metre for curtain drops, upholstery etc. And I wont be fretting about wonky repeats. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I will still handprint all my homeware fabrics so I can play with my colour pallets and test the designs out there. So far so good! I have met so many incredible people along this journey. I couldnโ€™t feel more content. I love connecting with you and growing my community. Iโ€™m about to send another quarterly newsletter to let you know where Iโ€™ll be popping up with markets, events, workshops and a bit more behind the scenes. Hit subscribe on my website home page if you want, link in profile. Xx
Mega #flatlay alertโ˜ . This is one of our latest creations for the new collection of stunning jewellery from @cloudninecreativenz how good are those fringe hoops?! As you can imagine this little collection took a while to put together, although you are trying to create in lines all the objects are not the same size so this can get a little tricky.... . First we put in the magazines, being the largest item they set the structure and help to get those itinital lines in place. Next we added the boxes, once these are in place then you have a pretty good idea of the gaps that need filling so it is just a matter of moving the other objects aroud to complete the layout and keep the lines intact. We used the pink boxes as some of the backing cards to the jewellery are not square so the boxes help to keep the stright edges and tie the whole look together. Did I mention that the colour palette of this collection is also amazing, pop over to Cloud Nine and check it out! . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #jewellery #bling #accessories #jewellerydesign #jewellerylover #accessoriesoftheday #creative #creativelifehappylife #creativesontherise #creativejourney #creativeprocess #mycreativebiz #borntobecreative #createeveryday #thehandmadeparade #creativityfound #creativecommunity #makersgonnamake #nzmade #shopsmall #smallbizlife #supportsmallbusiness
If I am being honest Monday is not my favourite day of the week, that would be Friday for obvious reasons but also because I find I am super productive on a Friday. On Monday I feel excited about the week ahead but things are generally a little slower in the creativity department...anyone else feel like this? Today I am determind to nail my workload, keep an eye on my stories to see what we are up to - currently working on a very pretty project indeed! #butfirstcoffee โ˜•โ˜• This is a little snap that we took a few weeks back for @thehoneycollection.skincare of their Manuka Magic range #seekthesimplicity Have a great week everyone!๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒป๐ŸŒธ . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #beauty #naturalbeauty #beautyproducts #beautyaddict #skincare #beautyblogger #beautyjunkie #slowliving #aquietstyle #simpleandstill #thesimpleeveryday #theartofslowliving #livebeautifully #flashesofdelight #simplepleasures #amomentintime #momentsofmine
Dinner is served.....ok so maybe our dinner didn't quite look like this but a girl can dream right?! This was only a couple of weeks ago when we cooked and created for our new campaign with @tepawines wine and food go hand in hand so this amazing lamb lack from @dion.brown was just the perfect match for a delicious glass of Te Pa pinot noir. To go with our lamb we made a quinoa, cranberry, almond and herb salad and a cucumber raita, all finished off with sprinkling of homemade dukkah, YUM! There are plenty more of these images to come so stand by over the next few weeks.

A little floral flashback for your Wednesday evening. Sometimes I look back through my Instagram feed and I am like "don't like that photo anymore, don't like that photo anymore" thank goodness for that archive feature right?! Well I can honestly say that I loved this image when I created it and it is still firmly one of my favourites. I love how it represented my style then and is totally still my style now. As much as some of my old work horrifies me it is also interesting to see how my style has changed and grown over the past year, when you are designing these images on a daily basis it is not always easy to come up with new and fresh ideas that are unique to a particular client. I often get asked "how do you keep coming up with the ideas" and honestly I don't know it is just how my brain is wired hence why I am so lucky that I get to do a job that is creatively right up my alley!๐ŸŒนโš˜๐ŸŒผ๐ŸŒป . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #creativelifehappylife #creativesontherise #creativejourney #creativeprocess #mycreativebiz #borntobecreative #createeveryday #thehandmadeparade #creativecommunity #makersgonnamake #flowerarrangment #floralstyling #pursuepretty #petalsandprops #pinkflashesofdelight #inspiredbypetals #underthefloralspell #blooms #alliseeispretty #alittlebeautyeveryday #floralstories #stylingtheseasons #alltheprettyflorals #inspiredbynature
Something to brighten your dayโ˜๐Ÿ’– How is this for a good dose of pink?! We painted this new background to work in with the fabulous packaging on these @skinjuice products and we couldn't have been happier with how it turned out. Some colours don't really photograph that well especially bright ones so it can take a little bit of experimentation to find the right one. Nailed it! Throughout this set of images we included the square washi tape frames as we love how it frames the product but also how the straight lines are in stark contrast to the more relaxed style of the fruit arrangement. The addition of orange and a touch of greenery just breaks up that pink ever so nicely and the white florals tie in with the white writing on the labels. Watch out for more of these colourful creations over the next few weeks.

Hot off the work deskโ˜ Loving this combination of natural goodness in these new images we created for @cloudninecreativenz brand new jewellery collection. We used the plate in the middle so we could still have all that pretty detail filling the frame without distracting you from the necklace, by leaving the space around the necklace your eye is drawn into the middle first and foremost then you can move onto checking out all that floral goodness. We added the pops of white in the arrangement to tie in with the necklace and the white is a nice break from the green in the arrangement....so many things to consider! We absolutely love the opportunity to be able to work with such beautiful creative products and brands, definitely makes our job easier๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ‘Œ๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒผ . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #creativelifehappylife #creativejourney #creativeprocess #mycreativebiz #borntobecreative #createeveryday #thehandmadeparade #creativecommunity #makersgonnamake #creativesontherise #flowerarrangment #floralstyling #pursuepretty #petalsandprops #pinkflashesofdelight #inspiredbypetals #underthefloralspell #blooms #alliseeispretty #alittlebeautyeveryday #floralstories #stylingtheseasons #inspiredbynature
Nothing like a foodie #flatlay to start the week right? We designed this festive themed flat lay for our friends at @wildfennelnz last year, yes it did take us some time to get all those little details in their place but I have to say it is very satisfying filling all those little gaps especially when those final pieces of the puzzle come together. We have a brand new blog post coming your way soon so watch out for that later in the week (it's a goodie!) our newsletter will be flying into inboxes this week too so if you are not on our mailing list but would like to be DM me your name and email and I will take care of that for you.

It's that time of the week again and we are celebrating today with a @cleancollectiveofficial watermelon, cucumber and lime mojito, who's with me? Really we are just trying to bring some summeritme vibes to these extreamly chilly winter months, I will let you know how that works out for me๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ‰ We had to practice our fruit cutting skills for this one, slicing and dicing our way to a brand new set of images for this delicious new flavour. You can check out some of the past work we have created for Clean Collective over on our website. I hope you all have a tasty beverage infront of you and some fun plans for the weekend.

Pretty in Pinkโ˜ This was one of the images that we created last year for the beautiful @simonepwalsh jewellery. We wanted this image to be pretty and feminine (I think we acheived that๐Ÿ˜‰) and of course firmly focused on the jewellery. So we pulled out one of our old favourites the side arrnangment, how good are the colours of those roses tho?! The flowers are used here to frame the necklace and although the the colours are fairly dominant the placement helps to direct the eye to the jewellery so that you can appreciate both at the same time. We used the babies breath and the smaller flowers at the tip of the arrnangment to add detail and make it appear more delicate, I have to say I am loving alllll this pink! #ihavethisthingwithpink ๐ŸŒท๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ’Ž๐Ÿ’— . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #jewellery #bling #accessories #jewellerydesign #jewellerylover #flowerarrangment #floral #floralstyling #pursuepretty #petalsandprops #pinkflashesofdelight #inspiredbypetals #underthefloralspell #blooms #floralphotography #alliseeispretty #alittlebeautyeveryday #floralstories #stylingtheseasons #alltheprettyflorals #inspiredbynature #livebeautifully
Hmmm how to fit an extra large Venison rack into a photo and make it look pretty...... Well first we decided that the portrait style shot was going to work here as it framed the rack better and left space around the edges for all those delicious ingredients. We were going to do a more square style #flatlay but all those odd shapes and sizes lend themselves to more of a random placement situation (that's the technical term ya know๐Ÿ˜‰) .. My favoutite part of these flatlays are adding all those final little details that really take the setting up a notch, the garnish I like to call it. The herbs, chilli flakes, garlic cloves and of course the token sprinkling of sea salt....I don't know if you have noticed but I always sprinkle sea salt in my food images, firstly becuase I just love salt and secondly because I think it adds nice movement and gives the image a more detailed and "lived in" appearance. What are the must have items in your images?๐ŸŒถ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿฝ . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #foodstyling #foodphotography #foodie #foodisfuel #foodieflatlays #foodforthought #foodblogger #mykitchentable #lifeandthyme #gatherandfeast #firstweeat #foodblogfeed #foodstories #foodstylingandphotography #foodstylistlife #creativeprocess #mycreativebiz #borntobecreative #createeveryday #creativityfound #makersgonnamake #creativesontherise
I'm just going to pop this delicious, melty, crispy and mouth watering cheese toastie right here..... Made even more amazing by the fact that it was also coated in @wildfennelnz pork sesoning which is a little bit smokey and a little bit spicey for that extra kick! This was hard to make I have to tell you, it smelt so good and I was just looking at all that beautiful melty cheese feeling more and more hungry by the second. Such an easy way to spice up a traditional cheese toastie and let's face it a cheese toastie should always be in the menu!๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿง€๐Ÿž . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #foodstyling #foodphotography #foodie #foodisfuel #foodieflatlays #foodforthought #foodblogger #mykitchentable #lifeandthyme #gatherandfeast #firstweeat #foodblogfeed #foodstories #foodstylingandphotography #foodstylistlife #cheesetoast #cheeselover #smallbusiness #supportsmallbiz #nzbusiness #madeinnz #nzphotographer #nzstylist

If you were watching my stories last week you would have seen that I was buried deep in the world of wine and food which lets be honest is exactly where I like to be! Well the result of that is a brand new massive campaign for the team at @tepawines and I am sooo excited to share this first image. All week we created settings, cheeseboards, grazing tables and on top of that had the opportunity to cook up some delicious meals with some amazing produce. Thank you @crankygoatltd @cloudybayclams and @dion.brown for all the beautiful food I got to work with and of course if you are looking for a delicious drop to bring in the weekend...or for anytime really @tepawines have got you covered!

Hey there๐Ÿ– Well here I am doing what I do on the daily, pretty much with a camera permanently stuck to my face. People always ask me how I get my photos so light and bright, well the short answer to that is practice and natural light. I have had a keen interest in photography for some time now, well before Revised Edition was even a thing but taking random landscape and holiday images are quite different to product photography. I have no qualifications in photography the only way I have learnt to use a camera is by setting it to manual and working it out. I have never used auto mode to shoot my images even in the beginning as I didn't want to get comfortable with that and then one day have to adjust the settings and have no clue what to do. When I look back at my product photography from the old days it is not pretty but it is encouraging to see the change in my photos and how I have really taught myself to use the camera to create the best possible image so that very little editing is required. Do you struggle to get off auto? Take the plunge, you might be surprised at the results๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ“ท . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #photography #photographytipsandtricks #brandstory #brandstrategy #behindthebrand #facebehindthebrand #knowyourmaker #smallbusinessnz #supportsmallbiz #shopsmallnz #smallbusinesslife #creativepreneur #creativejourney #mycreativebiz #nzbusiness #madeinnz #nzphotographer #nzstylist #inspireme #feelinginspired #inspiredlife #liveintentionally #dreamersanddoers
I just want to dive right into this relaxing scene that we created for @thehoneycollection_skincare recently. We wanted this image to have a very soft, feminine feel so that the packaging would really stand out. We achieved this by using lots of layers and soft textures, our background was a white textured sheet then we used the knitted cloth some florals and a white focused colour palette to really give it that light and bright feeling. The plate in the middle creates a centre focal point which allows the eye to first focus on the products telling you immediately what this image story is about. Then you get to really delve into all those details and layers that help bring the story together. How much thought do you give to your product photography? Are you a strict planner or a throw something together at the last minute person? I would love to hear about it in the comments๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ๐Ÿฏ . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #beauty #naturalbeauty #beautyproducts #beautyaddict #skincare #beautyblogger #beautyjunkie #slowliving #aquietstyle #simpleandstill #thesimpleeveryday #theartofslowliving #seeksimplicity #livebeautifully #flashesofdelight #simplepleasures #amomentintime #momentsofmine #inspireme #getinspired #inspiredlife #liveintentionally #dreamersanddoers

What's on your dinner menu this week? Take me back to this absolutely delicious @cervenavenison roast that we cooked up a few weeks back for our shoot, so quick and easy to cook and it just tastes so damn good!

Love this little set up that we designed for the team at @skinjuice recently and surprisingly it turned out pretty much as I had pictured it in my head. So it all looks pretty simple right? Slice up some fruit, match it up and your good to go, weeeelllll not quite. Yes I did start by slicing up the friut, trying to make sure all the slices were of even thickness, that was an achievement on its own. I then used washi tape to mark out the square that I was going to fill and started placing the slices inside. I started with the limes and perfected that section before I added the oranges which were a little more tricky as they are larger and they didn't fill the gaps quite as nicely. I used the washi tape as a guide and sliced through the citrus to form the stright edges, this was not that simple either especially when your knives are not the sharpest. Then it is just a matter of tidying up round the edges, making sure the fruit was meeting properly in the middle and not leaving too many gaps. I was originally going to put the products on their matching coloured backgrounds but decided at the last minute that I liked the contrast better. Watch this space for more @skinjuice creations in the coming weeks๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’› . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #creativephotography #flatlay #flatlaysquad #flatlaythenation #lookingdown #beauty #beautyaddict #beautyproducts #naturalbeauty #naturalmakeup #goodforyourskin #byarrangement #thingsarrangedneatly #creativehappylife #creativepreneur #creativejourney #creativestyle #mystyle #smallbusiness #nzbusiness #contentcreator #styleinspo #colorful #livingincolor
Who doesn't love a good fruity creation?! Well you all know that I do and this is one of my favs from our last shoot with @caliwoods_eco this week we will be creating a whole new round of fruit fulled goodness Working with ice is always a little tricky and this was no exception, getting those little fruity pieces to play nicely with ice and stay in the right spot was challenging to say the least then we had to balance the straws in there as well... As you can see it all came together in the end and most of time it is worth persisting with these ideas to get that special shot. It is interesting how these ideas turn out, sometimes exactly as you had imagined, sometimes similar to what you had in mind and sometimes nothing like it but better. It is an organic process that I do plan somewhat but generally find that my plans go out the window and I end up taking a whole different direction. Do you stick to a strict plan or just let your creativity guide you?

All in proportionโ˜ I loved working on this super colourful project with @indiwildnz recently to showcase their new home ware range. We painted up some flash new colourful backgrounds and boxes that would work with the products and proceeded to style them up in these eye catching arrangements. Although this style looks easy, lets be honest the colour and the products do a lot of the work here but don't be fooled... I find the simplicity of this image tricky as you have to get the absolute perfect placement to ensure that all the items are visible and looking their best. On top of that it also needs to come together as a cohesive image, be in proportion, have a good range of heights, the right light and it needs to fit well within the frame. I really enjoy these challenges and being able to think about a image from a different perspective, simple doesn't always mean easy. More of these colourful snaps will be up on my website soon so stay tuned๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’™ . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #brandstory #homeware #homedecor #handmade #art #colourpop #keepingitcolourful #livingincolor #colourfulllife #creativepreneur #creativebiz #creativesontherise #smallbusiness #smallbiz #smallbizhustle #creativeprocess #instamarketing #contentcreator #freelancerslife #borntobecreative #simplicityisbeauty #simplelife #bts #snaphappy

Power of Pinkโ˜ So last week I promised you colour and here I am delivering on my promise with a big old splattering of pink of course. I painted up a selection of new background colours for this shoot with @skinjuice I was so happy with how this one came out, the perfect shade of pink that actually photographed well too! I created my little colour swatch of red fruits which actually took me ages as I lined up all those little berries, then to finish it off I did the writing down the bottom, which shortly after I brushed over and smudged the whole thing......ahhhh not an enjoyable moment. Anyway I ended up cutting out another piece of card and sticking it over top, phew that was a close one!

Hey there๐Ÿ‘‹ I thought it was about time that I popped in to say hi to everyone that is following along with our Revised Edition journey, thank you all for being a part of it. First of all I am not a huge fan of being in front of the camera so I had to hold my cup of tea as I never know what to do with my hands, we filled up a good portion of the camera reel with shots but there were plenty of bloopers in there let me tell you. Anyway I am here now! For those of you who I have never met before my name is Nikki and I have been on this crazy creative ride with Revised Edition for just over two years now, where that time went I have no idea but I do know that #ilovemyjob and being able to get up in the morning to create all day with such an interesting and exciting range of brands is AHHH mazing. I had really come to a stand still as far as work is concerned a few years ago and experimented with a few other options before I pretty much stumbled into product and food styling, I knew straight away that it was for me. Two years on and it is entertaining and horrifying all at the same time to look back at some of my original work and see how far I have come. I can't wait to take this journey to the next level, we have some big plans this year so I hope you will all stick around to see what we have in store๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿ’– . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #foodstyling #foodphotography #mycreativebiz #calledtobecreative #creativelifehappylife #creativeentrepreneur #communityovercompetition #smallbiz #womeninbusiness #makersmovement #makersgonnamake #girlboss #smallbiz #shopsmall #brandstory #facebehindthebrand #creativeprocess #creativejourney #dowhatyoulove #visualstorytelling #contentcreator #madeinnz
All the coloursโ˜ I had sooo much fun with this colourful shoot for the beautiful new home ware range from @indiwildnz recently. Even tho the styling was reasonably simple getting the colour combos, angles, arrangements and lighting right is not quite so easy. I had a screen up to the right of this image covering my window and when I went to move it around it just let in this beautiful little stream of light so hey I went with that. I love the shadows and mixture of light and dark here and hello, the colours......well don't even get me started on that. We will be sharing more from this shoot in the coming weeks so stay tuned right here If you would like some creative product photography to help your brand stand out, get in touch today via the link in our bio or flick us a DM, we would love to create for youโ˜๐Ÿ’Œ๐Ÿ’œ . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #homedecor #homewares #decorinspiration # #photography #instaart #color #handmade #artsy #livingincolor #colourfulife #colourlover #ihavethisthingwithcolour #colorpalette #mycreativebiz #creativelifehappylife #visualcreators #contentcreator #borntobecreative #smallbusinessnz #shopsmall #nzmade #creativejourney #creativepreneur

I am just going to put it out there and say this might be my favourite fruit sculpture yet! Of course I have created many a fruit sculpture in my time (as you do) but where do you even start with something like this? Well I prefer the organic approach as in I have no idea what it is going to look like when its finished I just keep adding things until it looks right We designed this and a number of other fruity images for the team at @winemarlborough , check out their feed to see how they have put all the images to use. I hope you all have a glass of something delicious in hand, happy Friday friends๐Ÿท๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿ . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #foodstyling #foodphotography #foodie #foodisfuel #foodieflatlays #foodblogger #byarrangement #tgif #sauvignonblanc #nzwine #madeinnz #winelover #fruitsculpture #mykitchentable #lifeandthyme #gatherandfeast #creativepreneur #creativebiz #creativesontherise #contentcreator #creativehappylife #visualcreators #ilovemyjob
What makes a great, eye catching image? I would have to say textures and layers, yes you have probably heard me mention these two important little factors before a time or two but here's why..... If this image consisted just of the seasoning sitting on a silver tray maybe with some cutlery still to the side then yes it might still look pretty but why stop there where you can make it soooo much more interesting? I even used two silver trays here as I liked the detail of both so I positioned them so that you could see both the edges, of course we also count the background as a layer as that provides valuable texture and sets the scene for whats to come. The linen was a must have here (lets me honest there are not many times that it isn't) but with so many hard surfaces you need something to soften it, again I have two layers here as I liked the stripes and the plain white napkin and when you are working with such a simple set up you need to make the most of layering opportunities. Other layers to finish include the cutlery, herbs, cinnamon, oranges, chilli and the the final sprinkling of sea salt to add even more detail. Sea salt is key, I LOVE to sprinkle sea salt! There is a lot of thought that goes into an image and every component is there for a reason, styled and photographed for @wildfennelnz see more on our website (link in bio)โ˜๐ŸŒถ๐ŸŠ๐Ÿด . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #foodstyling #foodphotography #foodie #foodisfuel #foodieflatlays #foodblogger #flatlay #flatlaythenation #flatlaysquad #byarrangement #tipsandtricks #seasoning #texture #mykitchentable #lifeandthyme #gatherandfeast #creativepreneur #creativebiz #creativesontherise #contentcreator #creativehappylife #visualcreators #ilovemyjob

Gone green You know me and know I love a good leafy flat lay so here is our latest all green creation for @thehoneycollection These images are not quick to put together as you can image and this time of year the green options in the garden are slim pickings so you have to make the most of what you have got. I built the corners in with the products and then always add the larger leaves first so you can make sure they are balanced throughout the image. You then add the medium sized leaves, then the small and then maybe even the tiny if you want to get the tweezers out and get that detailed about it. Different shapes, sizes and textures are key to keeping this style interesting, it also looks great with flowers too if you wanted a more colourful setting, take a look back through my feed to see some examples๐Ÿ€๐Ÿƒ๐ŸŒพ๐Ÿ’š . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #foodstyling #foodphotography #creativephotography #food4thought #tipsandtricks #photographytips #flatlay #flatlaythenation #flatlaysquad #thingsarrangedneatly #naturephotography #naturescolors #gonegreen #explore #foraged #naturalbeauty #beautyproducts #madeinnz #shopsmallnz #creativepreneur #creativebiz #madeinnz #contentcreator
I'll tell you what, it is hard to keep those hands away from your foodie set up when bangers and mash are on the menu oh and then there's the beer of course, we can't forget that! We cooked, styled and photographed this image a few weeks back for @cervenavenison to show off these delicious venison sausages and how they might be served, well I couldn't go past the classic mash and peas with a tasty red wine jus to finish it all off. Of course we allowed the hands to get in a little closer for this one, really setting the scene and bringing the image to life........my husband is pretty happy with how his hand modelling career is advancing๐Ÿ˜‰ More from this super tasty shoot will be up on our website soon, watch this space for updates.

Hot off the work desk, a #flatlay overflowing with natural textures and goodness for @thehoneycollection_skincare This was a big project where we worked our way through the creation of 50 images including individual product shots, close up and detailed angle shots and of course larger styled settings like this one with a wider range of products in it. Given that a lot of the products have honey in them we ended up with some good sticky messes to clean up afterwards but it was all alot of fun and we are looking forward to sharing more from this collection in the coming months. These will be up on our website just as soon as I get a chance to update it. If you fancy some pretty new images to show off your product/brand flick us an email to discuss what we can create for you nikki@revisededition.co.nz ๐ŸŒผ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿ’› . . . . . . #revisededitionstyle #revisededition #productstyling #productstylist #productphotography #propstylist #foodstylist #brandstory #branding #behindthebrand #beautyproducts #naturalbeauty #skincare #beautyaddict #creativelifehappylife #creativesontherise #livetocreate #visualcreators #creativeprocess #marketingdigital #socialmediamarketing #byarrangement #freelancestylist #freelancelife #styledbyme #styledshoot #thingsarrangedneatly #creativebiz #madeinnz
