Behind the scenes - a Julie Cooper jewelry photo shoot June 02, 2015 15:38

On Monday, May 15 at Lucky No. 3 Art Studio, a group of women and one very small man gathered for a creative playdate to shoot the JULIE COOPER catalog, soon to be seen on our all-new online store.  Here are the players:

  • Kate & Morgan from Siren Salon
  • Amy from Amy Vining Photography
  • Sylvia - model
  • Persia - model (and also Sylvia's daughter)
  • Silas - 8 months old and teething, young Silas was such a trooper!
  • Angie - Runner, comedienne, caterer, and all-around support person
  • Julie Cooper - Designer of amazing sterling silver and brass jewelry for the cool chicks.

Our day lasted from about 10 a.m. until, well, dinner.  That's all I know.  We were hungry when we were done.  REALLY hungry.

Somehow, in one day we were able to photograph the majority of the JULIE COOPER line of jewelry, with Julie literally making jewelry as we were shooting.  We hope you'll enjoy our little collection of behind-the-scenes pics.  We had such a fun day.  Thank you to everyone who contributed!

The day started with two amazing makeup artists turning the Lucky No. 3 Art Studio into their own little salon.  Kate and Morgan took our original ideas and made them their own.  These girls are true artists.Silas is 8 months old, busting a new tooth and still smiling.  However, he was surrounded by a fleet of mothers and grandmothers in the room... that might have had something to do with it.Persia, Silas' mom was the picture of grace while she sat in a makeup chair for more than an hour and modeled for us the entire day all while caring for her sweet little baby.  Sylvia's pretty digits getting outfitted by Julie for a layered look.Julie tries to swoop in and out of the scene and make changes without being caught on camera.  It's going to be a challenge, but someday I'll be able to be more than her profile or hands in a photo!  She's fast!Julie's shop is located directly across from the historic Clinton Street Theater, and we took advantage of the view for a couple shots.She's not even modeling in this pic, and look at the beauty of this kid.  Gorgeous!
