Photography is an art that captures timeless moments that are lost in time and expresses the personality of the photographer. They say pictures are worth a thousand words, I beg to emphasize that great pictures are worth more.
On each and every occasion I always look for a good excuse to carry out a photo shoot for the jewelry. The experience gives me a clear and vivid picture of what our jewelry is all about in a different perspective. It is a grand opportunity to appreciate how another artist can represent our handmade jewelry in an impeccable nature and give the photos the same passion we make the jewelry with.
This year I chose to work with the distinguished Eugene Muniah of “Picture Milieu” and Sophie of “I am Kenyan”. Eugene Muniah is an energetic and zealous photographer accompanied by Sophie who is a great activist, fashion stylist and model. The whole concept behind the photo shoot was to create lifestyle photography of Jewelry. The idea was to capture images of the jewelry as one carry’s out their everyday activity like enjoying a meal, working on the laptop or just hanging out.
The choice of venue was the amazing Talisman Restaurant in Karen that is popular for its breathtaking ambience, outstanding service and sumptuous meals. It is a garden restaurant that has been creatively furnished with sophisticated and elegant furniture. The play of warm colors gives the place a cozy feel.
Share with us the great moments!
