19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Woman Embodies Forest

I was working with my friend Abigail on photographing some of her handmade jewelry for her website and we wanted to get some of the pieces on their own and some of her wearing them. While grabbing some photos of her wearing the jewelry, I just felt this overwhelming feeling of her authenticity and how her being "one with nature" was tangible and I knew I needed that to come across in my photos. To support her incredible, ethically sourced, nature-inspired jewelry, check out mysticmetalsmith.com.
