i frequently find my biggest inspirations coming from artists outside my field. one of my biggest and best (inspirations, that is) is my long-time, super-talented friend, kristin morris. she has based and built her business on her passion for style and design and her ever-emerging creations are, quite often, one of a kind. spending time in her charlotte-based workspace is perfectly overwhelming and i find myself ridiculously excited and personally motivated, each time finding new energy for my own work. there is wonder in doing what you love for a living. she's doing it. i'm doing it. no one said it was going to be easy... and if it were, there would be no story.
though product does not fall neatly into one of my website galleries, i love shooting it. even simple, on white images become dynamic through placement and shaping with light. i'm looking forward to getting my hands on another round of kristin's jewelry, but in the meantime, here are a couple of my favorites i've had the privelege of shooting. you can find out more about kristin and her work through her website, www.kristinmorris.com.
