    The lighting, the lighting! Excellent—and the models (and pearls!) are also so lovely.

    She's a beautiful girl (as are the pearls) and the lighting is great, but I have to say that I'm not crazy about the pose because it gives her body very awkward proportions.

    Not really sure what you mean by this, because nothing seems especially disproportionate (to me, at least). Jaden is almost 5'10" and lots of "leg," anyway - crossed legs also tend to make legs look shorter and not longer, which I assume is what you're referencing.

    In any case, thank you for the comments.

    Thanks Cricketbug, too, and JP I definitely agree.

    I can make up a short story, inspired by this photo, Andrew!

    How fun, Pattye! I think it's always cool when any image invokes a story.

    Now that I know how to reliably get the full size upload, here's another of Jaden. Ari will make a stop again tomorrow.

    Thank you, Charlotta! Much appreciated.

    Here's Ari again, with a strand of natural white Hanadama pearls. This one has a slight shift of artistic feel than the others. I'm not one who hugely leans to black and white images, but every once in awhile I'll find one I really love in it...

    My eye is drawn right away to the pearl strand in this photo! An interesting variation, Andrew.

    Beautiful photos. As gorgeous as the young lady is, the pearls still stand out.

    Thanks, all! I really appreciate both the kind comments and the critique/suggestion

    Here's a fun one from the shoot for PP that didn't quite make the final cut, because it looked a little more awkward, but I loved it for how bright it makes the Hanadama shine look

    Funnily enough, the reflection was just on regular poster card - nothing special like acrylic, but you can still see the shape in the "table!"

    The pearls glow in every photo. In the B&W photo, my eyes are drawn right to the pearls.
