I always enjoy introducing Joan Born as my partner and letting people figure out what exactly that's supposed to mean. We are L'avenir, partners in jewelry design. We had yet to snap any kind of useful head shot for our business until this little session with our boo Katie Essick, kicking off a fabulous day of shooting while Joan was in town from Seattle. I had to force Joan to WERK! And as we are both total goofballs, it was a challenge to get a pic of both of us with any kind of serious face. It was fun tho and in the end, we pulled off a few pretty smokin' shots.
