SUNDAY STORIES by Lisa Haukom 4.02.23

Here's what I learned about you this week.

You L O V E lifestyle and creative-focused content. You are cuckoo for our moodboardsand head over heels for our in-depth heart to heart blog interviews. In fact, you frequently follow and connect with the women we feature. You're also itching for more behind the scenes content, and are particularly curious about the inner workings of the Self Portrait Studio, virtual sessions, and my personal self portrait sessions. You trust our brand recommendations (thanks for that) and want to see more Goldenbrand collaborations and partnerships — specifically in the lifestyle space. 40% of you are following ourGoldenbrand studio content and also enjoying Gib's Landing content. 90% of you think our playlists rock and a handful of you have listened to ALL 8 of our guest podcast episodes (again, thank you). So far, it sounds like we are doing well to serve up the good stuff for our audience, all excellent to know!

If you're feeling behind, allow me to catch you up. Last week a survey went out to Goldenbrand subscribers asking for feedback on our content across the board. The survey will be open for another week, I'd love to hear from YOU.

I put my heart and soul into the content shared with you and know you are making a conscious choice to spend time with us. We adore you for that. With love and moxie.

- XOXO Lisa




This photo session with Gay Jegers ended with virtual hugs and kisses, that’s how magical our time together was. It was an absolute pleasure to capture Gay in her working art studio. She fits so well into this joyful, creative space and was comfortable painting from a blank canvas so I could capture her process live. And doesn’t she look fab, thanks to our in-house stylist Catherine Horgan.

“If there's one thing we've learned from the digital age, it's that a stunning photograph without a soul is just a snapshot. Why invest all your energy in capturing an image that falls short on telling your real story and true essence? As an editorial, lifestyle, and portrait photographer, Lisa Haukom is a master of bringing those personal moments and strong emotions to life. Her collaborative and storytelling approach is evident in every project she takes on, whether creating eye-catching content for social media or providing art direction for growing brands.” Read more below —>
