Client Spotlight: Gold +Water Co

Updated: Jun 30, 2023

Happy New Year! New for 2022 is a series where I will showcase clients I am working with as a product photographer, called Client Spotlight.

My first client spotlight, GOLD+WATER CO.®, is a handcrafted soapery business based in Philadelphia, PA. They make various self-care products from artisan soaps, balms, bath soaks, and more. GOLD+WATER CO.® also handpicks good quality ingredients from reputable sources only.

One of my favorite facts about Chartel (Owner of GOLD+WATER CO.®), is she supports anti-abuse organizations and advocates for mental health & hygiene. Chartel loves to remind her customers that "YOU ARE THE LUXURY."

Her products bring on a sense of relaxation and we should all experience this luxury.

Chartel states that self-care can be considered a luxury in her brand mission, and that you are the luxury. While self-care can be challenging for some, it doesn't need to cost hundreds of dollars and it doesn't need to take hours. Self-care can be soaking in tub, after a long day, using her Milk foaming bath soak or it can be as simple as using her Rest handcrafted body butter before bed.

As a product photographer, I have created e-commerce images for her website as well as content for her Instagram and other online platforms.

When I bring on a client, it's important to discuss what they envision for their brand so I can provide product photos that they love. Since there are many ways to describe a style, it's helpful when they send a Pinterest board of inspiration.

Being a creative photographer, I will do something similar from what I see on Pinterest, but I will not recreate it exactly. I use Pinterest boards as inspiration and add my unique skills to make it my own.

GOLD+WATER CO.® has been my client since June of 2020. She has since rebranded, and it's been amazing to see her business grow. Working together, for over a year, we have been in sync with what she likes for her product photos. I love being creative with more natural colors and props for her images: whites, neutrals, and water images.

Now, it's time for you to head over to and see what handcrafted products you want!
