JerseyMaids Galaxy Collection Lookbook Shoot
Guys, this post has been a looooong time coming! Lauren of JerseyMaids started this amazing collection of galaxy themed jewelry a while back, and it has really taken off. She asked me to do a styled shoot with several of the pieces including having them modeled, so I was of course THRILLED! After putting together a mood board with Lauren, I came up with a couple of sets to use. The first was a piece of wood with little holes in it that I found at the antique store. I thought the holes looked sort of like little stars, plus I added some punched out blue stars. Using natural light, I was able to get the moody look she was going for!
I shot the jewelry on my lovely friend Margaret in a vacant house in midtown. I had done the interior shots for the real estate listing and was able to go back and use it for this! It was the perfect spot. We had it completely to ourselves, and despite not having and heat in there, it was cozy. Margaret was, of course, wonderful. Her sweet fiancé, Ben, helped us get some coffee made to warm us up.
The second set I used was shot on a spray paint galaxy painting that I got at the flea market! I also used it for my Space Jam photo. With the addition of the rock, an element Lauren has used in her other photos, it went perfectly with the collection. These were definitely my favorites of the bunch!
To check these out in action, go to Lauren's website or Etsy store. I am usually so critical of my own photos, but I still look at these and love them. I have another shoot like this coming up pretty soon that I'm also really excited about!
I hope you guys are all having a great winter so far. We woke up to some more snow this morning. It isn't a ton, but it sure is pretty :) I, for one, am ready for warm weather, but I'm going to try to enjoy the snow while we have it.
