I had an assistant on my last jewellery shoot! And by “assistant” I mean “someone who understood “help” to mean “do all the things! Be in charge! Now’s your chance!”

Which means I think somehow I became his assistant.

My 8 year old took hold of the camera, took 16 shots of up his nose, 6 pictures of the sky, 10 of me trying to get a bracelet on, and an experimental one through the wavy glass window.

I’m *really* glad this digital camera thing took hold.


Among the more “artistic” shots, there were some surprisingly good ones.

He was quick on the draw! How long does it take to set a necklace for a picture? At least 4 shots!

It’s a great feeling to get your kids involved in what you do. We had an awesome evening taking pictures, going over the shots, and choosing what to use. He’s pretty proud to get his stuff up on the internet (kids are easy to impress) Plus, now I have a helping hand! Next goal: to get him designing!
