Five Brides | BTS

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….

Vintage prints and Copper Fringe

Oh this print. I fell in love with it from the very first moment and snagged it to wear to a good friends wedding. It’s been sitting in my closet awaiting a few alterations and I finally finished it and put it back in wardrobe rotation. Yay me!

Current musings {1}

I spent a little time with Kate Anderson again from Kate& Design and we played around with more still life shots and soft light. We went from this lovely mix of our favorite pinks and some current musings to trying out some scenes with a model (sort of) and movement. You can follow more of our playtimes on Instagram #colabwithkate or check out last weeks Smush SeriesCurrent musings | L'avenir

Cherry Season

SmushSeries {1}

It’s hard to not be inspired by the seasonal delights abound in the great state of WA. With something fresh and delightful popping up every week we thought it best to use and abuse (literally) some of the seasonal fares from the local market. It’s raspberry season folks, and the peaches aren’t half bad either. Disclaimer: all fruit not smushed was eaten, and the jewelry has been cleaned, promise.Lavenir {SMUSH}Lavenir {SMUSH}Lavenir {SMUSH}Lavenir {SMUSH}Lavenir {SMUSH}Lavenir {SMUSH}
