Ready to take your Creative business to the next level?
You’ve come to the right place.
HI, I'M JULIANA NAHAS-VIILO.
I'm a stylist, calligrapher, watercolor artist, traveler, stationer, botanical illustrator, coffee lover, mother, wife, and harpist (to name a few). And though I have many passions, one of my favorite things is watching fellow artists grow their business and achieve their dreams.
When I started on my entrepreneurial journey, I focused my time on wedding stationery and calligraphy. It was glaringly obvious that I needed professionally styled images, but my bank account just wouldn’t allow for it. I tried buying stock images for web and social, but they always fell flat (either so obviously computer generated it hurt or hundreds of other people were using the same images, which makes it even harder to stand out from the competition). Then I went the styled shoot direction, but those were also hit or miss; I wasn’t guaranteed my work would be given proper lighting, editing, props, or even be photographed. And the number of times shoes, feathers, and even food were put on top of (and sometimes completely blocking) my designs were too many to count. The investment, effort, and often heartbreak was taking its toll. Over the years, I wasted hundreds of dollars and so many hours. So, out of ideas, I began studying the art of the flat lay. What was it that made for images high in engagement on Instagram or get pinned over and over on Pinterest? I observed, learned, practiced, tested, and practiced some more. The result? A growing library of styled images and a passion for making sure other stationers don’t fall prey to over-used, over-edited, and underwhelming imagery.
If you’re ready to take your business to the next level, you’ve come to the right place. Don’t wait any longer, get over to the stock shop! I’m so excited you’re here!
I would love to chat with you about your journey, your passion, and creating your brand story that is authentic, original, and fits your personality.
