Photo Shoot Today

What a day!  Between filling orders this past few week, we were busy preparing some of our jewelry pieces for a professional photo shoot which was today.  Wow!  Things went so much better than I ever imagined they would and we can't wait to share some of the new photos with you but of course aren't ready yet so will have to wait.

Several weeks ago our model, Tiffany and I got together to pick out some clothes from her wardrobe that would look best with the jewelry pieces.  I then tried each jewelry piece on her to see if any adjustments needed to be made so they would fit just right and we wouldn't have to fuss during the photo shoot.

Pieces laid out on trays ready for a quick change in the photo shoot.
It was a fun day and everything could not have run smoother.  We managed to have quite a nice range of our work photographed.  Here is Tiffany, our fabulous model, and Colin MacArthur, the master photographer!  (Check out his website to see some of his past work)

This was the first time we had our work photographed by a real professional and I discovered what a difference it can make.  Colin's studio was really cool.  He had all sorts of different backgrounds that he could easily switch out and a variety of props to add interest to the photos.

It was a wonderful experience watching Colin at work taking all the pictures.  Later we watched him work even more magic after he downloaded the pictures to his computer.  Seeing them on the large screen was even more exciting!
