I've become friends with some amazing people over the last year here in Austin. Two very special women I've become closely acquainted with agreed to let me photograph them last night after an enjoyable cocktail and conversation at East Side Showroom. Page and Rachael are fun, creative, curious, clever, and quirky – just how my favorite people tend to be.  Here is a taste of some of the gorgeous shots I was able to capture as they wear some of our favorite jewels from the East of the Sun showroom.

Much love,

Well, that was fun!

I had a great time last night photographing lookbook images for Austin jewelry designer Rebekah Vinyard. You can find a few of her beautiful designs for sale right here on my website and in local boutiques throughout Austin. Here is a sneak peek of our shoot together! Rebekah is not only a talented jewelry designer, but an excellent model as well. More to come – so stay posted!
