    Thanks all! No phone photos here, lol. But, I'll be posting more as the semester progresses and also I have a few fun things to share about photographing pearls, themselves -- just need to get to writing that.

    Here's a photo of Mom's strand by itself that I snuck in the studio setup for a different project, which I will hopefully be able to share soon.

    In the mean time, enjoy this lovely strand all by itself once more and check out the sharp luster on these! - Fun fact I noticed, Mom's big Gem quality Tahitian studs (the 13mm ones) have a chocolate/brown overtone under the studio lights.

    Fun stuff!

    My heart skipped a beat when I saw your last photo! That photo really shows the beautiful colors of your mom's strand!

    Everyone! I can share the "special secret project," at last!!

    A little while ago (a few weeks), I got in touch with some folks at PP mostly hypothetically saying "I know PP is focused on awesome quality for affordable pearls, but just for curiosity's sake... What could PP do vs (the well known high end pearl company) given the truly same budget...?"

    And, as the VIP page said (check it out if you haven't yet!), the kind folks at PP told me about a couple of special strands they had on hand. We got to chatting, and the end result was that I had the privilege of making a couple of photos for the VIP page of these strands.

    Even my own photos don't really do justice compared to seeing them in person (which I can say I have!), and they are truly lovely.

    That said...

    I am going to make a "blog style" more "BTS" post about this project soon, for those who are interested in the thought process and what goes into doing these types of shots, but in the meantime, please enjoy a couple more final images (there were lots!):

    I wanted to share a quick photo of Rocio, who is simply yet another amazing and graceful model I get to work with. For this shoot, she was wearing some pearls, but they were faux. For the next shoot of this time, we're going to use some white Hanadama pearls instead.

    I just couldn't help it - faux or not, I had to share this portrait. Rocio just absolutely EMANATES class.
