Meet The Team!

A few weeks ago, the Violet Tinder Studios team expanded with the addition of Vanessa + Reyan. The previous few months had been a whirlwind of photos, props, and online adventures, and after one too many days feeling like I was drowning in my to-do list, I decided it was time to bring on some help. But let's be honest, they had to be FUN too!! Say hello to...


VANESSA // @lavender.danielle

Vanessa is an artist who loves to paint, and thanks to her other job at Urban Outfitters, she has a pretty sweet wardrobe too. Her creative eye and willingness to help with ALL my crazy ventures (Dance in front of a dry cleaners? Check! Blow up a kiddie pool? Check! Color-sort cereal? Check!) made her a perfect addition. A little bit more about her...

FULL NAME + ASTROLOGICAL SIGN

- Vanessa Bowden. I usually go by Vanessa or Danielle. I'm a Scorpio.

FAVORITE COLOR

- I LOVE lavender! (or just pastel colors in general).

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE DOING IN 10 YEARS?

- I hope to be supporting myself with my art by then. be able to have my art in galleries and consistently vending at events. 

FAVORITE MOVIE

- I'd have to say fantastic mr. fox by Wes Anderson. It's such a classic witty stop motion film. I just love it!

FAVORITE DISNEY PRINCESS

- Princess Tiana! she's the perfect amount of sassy and sweet.

FAVORITE JUNK FOOD

- Probably vegan nachos from Veggie Grill.

A PERFECT DAY OFF WOULD INVOLVE...

- Exploring, driving around, taking photos, listening to music, sketching whatever is around me with my friends.

RANDOM FACT ABOUT YOU!

- I currently have my own art shop called Lavender Danielle. I do a lot of watercolours with bright colors and paint a lot of fruit and plants. 


REYAN // @reyanamoudi

Reyan is a communications student at Cal State Fullerton and has a major passion for photography and the advertising world! Her sharp eye for art + color, and her energetic personality sold me the first time we met (in a Starbucks parking lot, no less), and her oh-so-cool hot pink suitcase secured the fact that we were meant to work + shoot together (#yourpropsaremyprops). A little bit more about her...

 

FULL NAME + ASTROLOGICAL SIGN

- Reyan Amoudi and I'm a Cancer.

FAVORITE COLOR

- This is such a tough question for me since I seriously love every color there is, but if I had to choose one it would have to be earthy colors with a splash of pink! Like grass green, sky blue and rose pink. Its such a peaceful combo with a dash of a popping color!

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE DOING IN 10 YEARS?

- I feel like life should be celebrated with every chance you get. Combine that and my insane love for going to the craft store/making treats- I'm pretty sure party planning/party store/bakery (hahah I know lots of slashes!) would definitely be a dream job! If I can get anywhere near having my own business going on for me in the next 10 years, that would be a dream come true for my career. 

FAVORITE MOVIE

- The Harry Potter series!! I'm a die hard Harry Potter fan since the release of the first movie back in 2001!

FAVORITE DISNEY PRINCESS

- Ariel from The Little Mermaid. How cool is it to get to live both under the sea and on land! I really enjoy going out to undiscovered places and finding new things. Also because when I was younger, anytime I was in a pool or the tub I would imagine having a tail and sing "Under the Sea".

FAVORITE JUNK FOOD

- BURGERS! It's on my bucket list to try 50 burger joints from around the world. Adding to that, I have an obsession with throwing milk chocolate m&m's on almost everything. If you find me making a sandwich and there's milk chocolate m&m's in reach- I will toss some in there for sure.

A PERFECT DAY OFF WOULD INVOLVE...

- Waking up at around 6:30AM for a warm cup of tea and a toasted raisin bagel in the backyard followed by a walk in the park. Spend the afternoon at a new undiscovered place with my camera to later come home, have a nice big meal while watching a good movie in the living room. AND the trick to really enjoy that meal and movie- have all your desserts, drinks, blankets and remotes all set up beside you so you don't have to bug yourself to get up and get anything.

RANDOM FACT ABOUT YOU!

- I have both the movie scripts of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and Chamber of Secrets memorized by heart. I'd be watching the movie and lip sync along with the characters. 


Can't wait for all to come with these fab, fun ladies! Xx Natasha
