Lights, Camera, Action!

October 14, 2013

One day a few months ago I met with Laura Mathis, an acting teacher, and mentioned how I would like to do a photo shoot with a model wearing my jewelry. But I wanted the model to be a "real" person. She suggested a gal she knew and introduced us through an email. Well, being the small world that it is, I already knew Lila Dewindt, District Manager for Arbonne cosmetics, a photogenic "real" model if ever I saw one.

So I made a date with Lila and photographer extraordinaire, Anthony Richardson, for them to come to my home for a photo session.

We had such a delightful time. I had sent Lila pics of the jewelry I wanted to photograph and she brought lots of great clothes so we would have choices of necklines, colors, etc. for the jewelry. She even had a vintage Chanel jacket in the mix. With each click of the camera, I thought: Elle magazine, watch out!

Here's two of the many great pics from the shoot. Thank you Lila!!!

Does having a "real" person as a model for clothing and accessories inspire you more than a high fashion model?

Before moving to Albuquerque over 16 years ago, I tried to pair down my belongings while still living in Atlanta, determined to make a "clean" start in my new home in the Southwest. I took bags and bags of things to local charities and disposed of tons of "stuff" collected over the years.
