So have I even mentioned that I'm getting a new website?!  Well sweet em is about to amp it up a bit with a much more user friendly way to order.  But in order to get to there, we needed some photos and some good ones.  Living in a small town, it's hard to find someone that is in line with your vision and I feel so lucky that I stumbled upon Matt.  I was feeling at a loss for a product photographer and mentioned it to a friend, who in turn suggested Matt!   If you are friends with sweet em on facebook or instagram you may have seen that we had our first photo shoot a few months ago and I can't get over the amount of talent in the house that day.

First, our team:

Matt Hanner - photography.  He's amazing..so easy to work with and really great at his job.. plus all his fun equipment really made us feel like this shoot was professional (which it was! - I still have a hard time believing we are grown up enough for this stuff)

Arre - stylist. you know her..my super talented sister-in-law.  Even though my attempts at getting her in front of the camera didn't really pan out - she really has an eye for style and an amazing house she let us shoot in as well!!  She is my go to person to ask what to wear to anything and was a great sounding board for ideas on clothes/earring matchups.  Plus, she's just fun to be around..win-win!

Melissa & Tabatha - my super sweet models that let me pay them in earrings!  They are naturals and so sweet to be in front of the camera.

Here are a few shots from that day.. it really was so much fun and can't wait to work with this group again!

 

 

 

and finally, mimosas are helpful when you're super uncomfortable in front of the camera (i of course was the only one uncomfortable but matt and the mimosas made it easy!)

 

 So fun!  Next up will be shots of the girls in their sweet em jewelry.  Stay tuned!

p.s. - as you may notice, the etsy shop is on vacation but will be back up and running in 2 weeks.. we are just soaking in these last days of summer :)
