Tip #1

Define & Concept

Take some time to iron out the details for the project. We always have a mini brainstorm sesh before we begin creating. Write down the project details and all of your ideas on paper, so you can plan out your photo shoot:

  • What is the brand's goal?
  • What is the subject matter? (product)
  • What is the creative concept?
  • What kind of shots do we want to capture? (video? stills? Insta-story?)
  • Plan out your photoshoot

Tip #2

Post-Production: Compose & Crop Images

After you've shot your images, the post-production process begins. We encourage you to find and create your own style / aesthetic for your images. The last step of the post-production process is KEY for producing high-quality content across all platforms. We always crop our images appropriately for the platforms we use most:

  • Instagram: square (or vertical)
  • Blog: horizontal

Cropping gives us the opportunity to re-compose the image. Sometimes a raw image may seem boring as-is, but cropping in on a certain part can make the final image a winner!

We the Birds

Sisters, Sarah + Natalie Knowlton, are the founders of WE THE BIRDS — a lifestyle brand and luxury French macaron bakery. We grew up living all over the world, moving over 17 times and living in many countries including: Singapore, Australia, Venezuela, Cambodia, Thailand, France and of course, the US of A.  Our personal style and global perspective is a reflection of our transient upbringing. 

WE THE BIRDS, founded on our shared love of fashion, design, travel and French macarons, houses two businesses: WE THE BIRDS | Studio and WE THE BIRDS | Macarons. Sarah’s professional background (with industry experience in fashion, graphic design, & photography) combined with Natalie’s culinary prowess and professional business experience sets us apart from our competitors and makes us a uniquely dynamic duo.
