As a photographer and a make up artist we have been making things beautiful for some time now, honing our skills and more then anything learning how to translate this passion into our jewelry business. We would go as far as to say this is, kind of our jam. This go around we packed in two full on styled shoots, five models, three stylists, two hair and make up artists, two photographers and a whole lotta jewelry into one hot and humid afternoon. We can’t wait to show you the final result, for now… BTS SNEAK PEEK:
We are going to remain a bit more secretive over the last shoot of the day, because we can do whatever we want, but just to rub it in that you still can’t see it yet….
As we find ourselves deep into the throws of wedding season, we received these beautiful images of this amazing collaborative shoot featuring Forever Bride captured by Noah’s Ark Photography. Always happy to lend a stylish hand, it was a beautiful day at The Gale Mansion in Minneapolis where we shot inside and out to captured details of this fairytale shoot. From accessories to invitations, flowers and desserts, the day was full of beautiful options, including two brides for one groom!
Gritty NYC vibes from a fifth floor apartment in Harlem. Jen’s latest trip to the big apple was capped off with this saucy collaboration with photographer Asha Efia. We love the hazy moodiness of these pics as you can imagine starting your day off half naked, sipping coffee, lounging in your underwear before you hit the streets in that white hot two piece outfit.
It has always been our intention to represent our customer in our marketing and advertising. Showcasing beauty in all of it’s forms, we create for the woman who is strong, modern, and confident. Someone who loves their style and knows what works for them and what doesn’t. When Jen first met Isabel, it was the beginning of a beautiful working friendship. Jen has been styling Isabel in the way of hair and make up for her blog and we had the opportunity to get her in front of the lens this spring for a colorful series in Hips & Curves Lingerie.
“Jewelry is a treat. Though it’s not something that we “need”, it is something that we treasure. L’avenir’s goal is to make a product that lasts for generations. The new heirlooms, made from previous ones, that you can actually wear. They have made their way out of the drawer into their future. We believe that jewelry should remain special, artistically made and a means of self-expression.
