I had the pleasure of working with Jewell Whitmer as she starts the process of launching her Women’s Health Integrative & Functional Medicine Practice! Jewell is a certified nurse midwife and herbalist who has been practicing for 12 years. She has delivered a ton of babies and helped women through many births. Now she’s excited to take what she knows and begin to focus on women’s health and empowerment, and I’m so excited to help her with that process! She contacted me to take new branding photos and headshots for her, and together we had a blast shooting in an incredible house with a beautiful property (and fun music always helps a session along too!). Jewell actually used to develop her own photographs in a darkroom in her childhood home, so she knows a lot about photography and what she was looking for in her branding photos, and I was excited to work with another creative woman. Also, I have to say, I love photographing food and am pretty excited whenever anyone asks me. AND I got to photograph tea this time as well, which is also great fun. And Jewell knows a lot about teas. If you want to follow her in her new business journey and become her client, you can find her and her knowledge of teas and food on Instagram here.
So thrilled to be asked by Gilded Bridal to photograph what was a ridiculously fun model session out at The Prettiest Pieces in Greensboro, NC! With talented models Rosie McVeigh, Rachel Atkinson, Candace Smith, and Gracie Kirkland, and with help from the awesome teams at Makeup by Ashley Mooney and ZimZoom Photobooth, we took a bunch of photos of photographs showcasing the variety of gorgeous designer wedding dresses that Susan keeps in stock at Gilded (and if you want a peek at more from her store, check out this other shoot I did for her last month!). It is SO MUCH FUN to work model shoots, especially when you have talented and gorgeous women to work with who are incredibly adaptive and incredibly good at smiling for four hours even when you throw a bunch of glitter at them.
