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?

Their swirly pattern looked almost exactly like the posts on these brass and Swarovski crystal earrings I recently made.

I love neutrals, especially animal prints. But neutral colors can be - well - a little boring! And what better way to to add that color than with a fabulous necklace with a red coral accent bead.

Anyone who sees me on a regular basis, knows that the white tee is one of my wardrobe staples. I love them because they come in so many shapes and styles, from close fitting to oversized, round neck, vneck, scooped neck - there's a flattering look for everyone.
