I’m so excited to share a really fun project that I was a part of. Aussie Merino is a new brand of wool boots that recently launched and had me produce some photo shoots for them! What I love about the brand is that their goal is to bring quality, cozy boots and slippers to the market at a really affordable price!This post includes affiliate links. I am an affiliate for the brand and if you purchase boots through the links in this post, I make a little bit of money. Which I will probably use to buy myself even more boots.
I was super nervous when Aussie Merino approached me about putting a photo shoot together for them. I mean, I take pictures for the blog, but I’m totally not a professional. And producing a photo shoot is 100 % different from how I handle my blog work. I had to find models, rent an Airbnb with the right “vibe”, pull all the clothes, bring home decor items, and find helpers. It was a lot! But I was so happy with how it all turned out. I wanted to share a bit of it with you guys because I’m pretty proud of myself. I was super nervous that I wouldn’t get what the brand wanted, but I just tried to organize and be as prepared as possible. My friend, Michelle and my sister-in-law Alyson, were the best helpers ever. Overall it was a super fun experience even though I thought I would pass out from stress at times. The first shoot turned out so great they had me do another one a few months ago. That time I had a better idea of how to tackle it and it went a little bit smoother. Aussie Merino has a wide variety of boots and slippers. They are made with Australian wool and are so cozy. I have several pair and they are the best! I also have a pair of Ugg boots, but I refuse to wear them because they are so expensive. Isn’t that ridiculous?! With the prices of the Aussie Merino boots, I can literally wear them all the time and not worry if they get worn out. Plus, with the prices so low, I can buy multiple styles and colors. I asked friends and family to model for me for both shoots and I’m so grateful that they were willing to give me their time and were so patient with me trying to get the shots! A huge thank you to my niece, Paris, Megan, Brittany, Alina, Genette (and her kids!), and Dinah! I could never have done this without you guys!
A note on sizing, I was worried that the slippers I got were too small, but as you wear them, and the wool gets compacted and there is more room for your foot!
Be sure to get on their newsletter list! Even though the prices are super low already, they have sales often! Aussie Merino boots would make a great gift idea for your friends and family that would appreciate cozy feet! And they make kid’s sizes too! There is nothing cuter than a little kid in boots! Take a second to head over to Aussie Merino and check out their selection! You’ll be able to see a lot of the images I took at the photo shoots! I love following them on Instagram and seeing my work pop up!
I am grateful that they asked me to do these projects for them! It gave me so much more confidence in my skills and opened up the possibilities of ways I can help other small brands that I love! Do you have a pair of Aussie Merinos yet??
