I did my very first model shoot! I hired the beautiful Megan Silva to be my model, and we went to work trying to make magic! Megan was a delight to work with and a trooper when trying to get those shots I envisioned in my head. One of the hardest was this rose crown photo, which turned out beautiful!
She was very trusting, as I stood on a step stool hovering above her trying to get the best shot. Thanks, Megan!
There was so much involved in planning the shoot, like scouting for a location, wardrobe, lighting, hair, and makeup, etc. Luckily we were blessed with a beautiful day! It was breezy and Megan’s hair would blow in her face a bit, but nothing a little Photoshop action couldn’t fix!
Over the years, I’ve gotten much better with photographing my jewelry, but portraiture photography was something new for me. I had to think about the overall design I wanted to create to showcase the collection, poses, and then afterward Photoshop each image with the same style so it had a cohesive look. I messed up a bit on the camera settings, but overall I am happy with how the model shoot turned out! I learned so much, and plan to go crazy with my next shoot! My next collection is going to include more gemstones and be a bit edgier! Megan has already agreed to be my model for my new collection, so I’m super excited for another shoot!
Here are some of my favorite shots.
This silly squirrel wanted his photo taken too!
