Never for any brand shoot have I had the privilege to photograph so many amazing products made by so many amazing women from different businesses in the Pittsburgh area. Brand shoots typically involve one business with products or services so why was this branding session so different?

It's all thanks to Miranda and Taylor of Locally.Us!

With their love for travel and a desire to support local female-owned businesses, Miranda and Taylor set out to make it easier for women to support women.

Through thoughtful consideration, they came up with the idea to create seasonal curated boxes filled with local handcrafted goodies made by female-owned businesses.

Each season they pick a new city to feature in the box and for Spring 2020, they picked the beautiful city of bridges, Pittsburgh.

What prompted you to start your business?

We started our business as a result of a few life situations! The first was truly the 9-5 jobs that were leaving us feeling unfulfilled and like we could be doing more!

The second was our love for travel and connecting with new people. And the third was our dream to own our business and use it to help others also accomplish their dreams of turning an idea into a business.

Our seasonal travel boxes allowed us to combine all of these areas of our life that we loved or felt were lacking in a totally fulfilling brand!

At the end of the day, what impact do you want to have on the world as a business & person?

At the end of the day,we just want to offer a place and platform for emerging women-owned brands

Whether that be through our boxes, events, or one of the many other ideas we have on how to pivot our business, our ultimate goal is to showcase the products and tell the stories of the incredible women behind them to make shopping local easier and more accessible than ever!

We also hope to connect women through our platform, we see it happen all the time at our events and it truly has become our favorite part.

We are better together, and anything is possible when badass women come together.
