Photographing jewelry is a challenge. I've learned a lot over the last couple of years and have much to owe to a dear friend who is also a professional photographer. Lara, of Lara Parent Photography, is incredible at her job. Not only is she an amazing photographer and artist, but she's one of the most creative people I know.
Lara has encouraged me and my children to learn more about photography, and graciously provided us with photography tips she's learned while honing her craft. As much as we've improved at taking photos, I'd much rather Lara photograph our jewelry.
-Our LARA earrings, each stone is unique and no two earrings the same. Made of 14k gold filled wire and howlite. See them here.-
If the photographer you're working with can make you feel relaxed in front of the camera, you've got a good photographer. If they can make you feel relaxed and look great, you have an excellent photographer.
When looking for a photographer to represent your brand it's important that your style meshes with theirs. Lara had a vision of a photo shoot highlighting nature, with our jewelry displayed among botanical plants and minerals. I loved it and these photos are some of my favorite.

Collaborating with someone you like, trust and admire is a true delight. Thank you to Lara Parent for her design talents, camera savvy and a fun, relaxed shoot.
