Ren and Donovan
Small business owning takes a certain amount of risk. You take something you’re passionate about and put it out there for the world to see. You pour hours and hours and so much hope into something, praying that someone will see what you saw and believe in your brand, especially when your brand relies on your own creativity.
I remember the day I met Donovan and Ren. I was feeling discouraged, burnt out, and in a creative slump. I saw the leaning on each other bent over their laptop. They were laughing and working on some creative content together. I was just so struck by their chemistry and energy with each other. I had this crazy idea to approach them and ask if I could take their pictures. So I did. I took a risk and gave them my card.
The next thing I know we were meeting up in downtown Raleigh. Ren had this great vision to incorporate these cool trench coats and I picked the locals that I though paired well with their aesthetic. Both Donovan and Ren are creative content builders in music, social media, fashion and the like. Working with them was so much fun. The session was filled with throwing out ideas, brainstorming, trying new things, and laughing really hard. I’m so glad I took the chance and reached out.
