The client: Atelier & Stone. A goldsmith and accomplished jewelry designer from England, a young woman and small business owner after my own heart. She is, in one word, AMAZING.
We bit off a lot- this being my first ever look book. Model casting, hair, makeup, styling, location scouting- every little thing. A-Z, we did lifestyle photography, close ups for scale, and the ever tedious product shots (OK- we did the product shots a few times- turns out formal jewelry photography is WHOLE thing...). In the end it was undoubtably the biggest production to date. We filled my tiny one bedroom with racks of clothes, set up hair at the kitchen table and makeup by a large window in my workspace. Every box of jewelry sat open with its polished contents gleaming. We paged back and forth through the looks we assembled the day before while swatting cats off the antique chair that was purchased for the shoot and began fitting the models into their first look (lint rollers close at hand).
We set up in the grand entrance of my apartment building, of all places, using the floor to ceiling windows, stone floors, and ornate cornicing to begin our production. The result: A hand crafted line of jewelry inspired by antique texture, designed for the contemporary woman "to be worn for everyday luxury".

Abigail Mlinar. It's only taken me years to learn how to spell your name- and pronounce it correctly for that matter (Mill-EYE-ner... in case you were wondering).
Abby and I connected over a project that our corporate employers were collaborating on in 2014. We were a couple years out of college, working hard, and making a place for ourselves in our community. Who would have known that three years from then we would be having coffee collaborating again as independent female business owners. You see, Abigail is the kind of woman who embodies everything one aspires to be as a young adult. She's chased her dreams, inspired a feminist collective (YUP), traveled the world, and radiates style and womanly beauty. Basically she's amazing and I'm obsessed.
I met her at her downtown apartment after she texted me a few photos demonstrating the incredible amount of morning light that poured into it. Bright white walls cracked slightly from a hundred years of life with floor to ceiling cornicing, tall windows, house plants, a mid-century modern thrifted couch, and hexagon tiling to die for. A kind of forever home fit for a millennial. She pressed coffee and I metered the light, then we took some photos. We smiled.

I could not be happier to be featuring two of my dearest friends. I'm over the moon that I will get to spend an entire weekend celebrating their love this summer and stand next to them while they say "I do".
Lauren & Joe started dating their freshman year of college and fell in love in Duluth. Way up north. Having met in 2007- their relationship has already spanned a decade. They've gone to the ends of the earth together- literally, they went to Patagonia. Their family traveled south to meet them in Santiago, Chile where Joe proposed while the family was in route. Now they travel back to the North where they began their journey together for an engagement session on the North Shore of Lake Superior during Novembers most epic Supermoon- aligning the moon, the tides, and their souls.
