I met June years ago when I was trying to learn to knit. She was a master at that art form, and as I’ve learned since, she’s also a master at envisioning, designing and making jewelry.
She engaged me to shoot her and another talented artist friend donning her latest creations, and I did what I do: forced them to wake up at the crack of dawn so we could work with pretty, perfect, natural light and I let them do what they do: joke, talk, and let me capture the beautiful creatures they are.
There is nothing not to love about working with people who can go with the flow, who are completely comfortable with my candid portrait style of shooting and who have contagious vibrant spirits.Â My face and my belly hurt from the conversations and the quips about ANTM, and I remain thankful to June for the opportunity to contribute to her following her bliss and sharing it in photo form.
Here’s a peek into the shots from that morning, and here’s a link to June’s Etsy site where you’ll see them make an appearance in a few weeks.
The light is beautiful! One of my favorite necklaces is a June Shin piece.
