AAHA Studio + Design, Los Angeles

Seattle Branding Photographer

Small Business Feature

February 1st, 2022


Before the pandemic hit, I was making frequent trips to the Los Angeles area to photograph clients and visit with family (I grew up in Southern California). On one of my trips in the summer of 2019 I worked with a fantastic Architectural + Design firm based out of Los Angeles. AAHA Studio

We spent time in their first office, and visited two design and build sites.

By getting you "working" in your space, textures and details start to emerge--and that is when the inspiration starts to flow.


Tell me a little about your business and what you do for your customers/clients;

"We are a concierge style, full-service, family run Architecture and Interior Design Studio who works hand in hand with clients to deliver their dreams." We design anything "smaller scale" including residential, commercial and retail projects. We focus on a high service business model, delivering great designs, but also being there with clients through the whole process; solving any problem they need help with or at least finding someone that can help and assisting them with managing that help. We are a boutique studio that uses technology to deliver the best product. In the end, the designs are important, but our business is really about relationships. We are all referral base and our biggest selling point is making the very complicated process easier for everyone in involved. We like it best when our team, our consultants and our clients feel like they are all part of our family. The role of an Architect is complicated and our job is multifaceted. We design and are artists, we have technical knowledge and deliver drawings that show that and then we also are project managers who make sure the process is running smoothly and all the involved parties are working to finish and are happy :)

What about YOU do you want to include in your brand and share with potential clients?

I like to share DIY, gardening + plants, baking, and life + parenting on my social media platforms. We want to share small glimpses into all the aspects I explained above. Most people don't really know what architects do or why they should hire us. A big part of our job is educating our clients. I would love for social media to be part of that education as a passive and constant platform. It should be both pretty pictures (that is after all what we produce) and informative. As we rebrand to better show the world what we do, we want to make sure we have a way to do that. Since what we do has a lot of components to it, I don't think we want to muddy it with too many outside things we like to do, but I do want to make sure we are driving home the concept that we are a family and we treat our clients as part of that. I want to make sure they think we are cool, interesting, talented, but also approachable.

What are 3 words you would connect with your business branding and why?!

Family. Concierge. Deliver Dreams. .....We have really been working on and trying to hone our "tag line / elevator pitch" that I put above and I think we landed on the above three as what our best selling point is to our clients. Where do you find inspiration? Everywhere :) The built environment, other peoples work, nature, photography, the past and the present. Especially in the digital age...it is almost overwhelming.

Tell me a little about a favorite project (new or old).

We are working on a few ground up residences right now and it is a very exciting time for us. I can't wait for some of them to start finishing so we can have some more photographs and real collateral! These homes are also for some amazing clients and I am also super excited to see them happy.
