I'm extremely lucky to sometimes get the opportunity to work with artists, models and stylists that I really adore. I love it when people have a drive and give me the feeling like they know what they are doing. When they have a vision they want to realise or create. Believe me, this trip cost Floralpunk heaps of money, but I know that it will be worth it. I had a specific concept in mind, but when working with artists, rather than photographers who you hire based on portfolio, you just leave them the freedom to create anything the way they want to. In the end your result might not be exactly according to script and mood board, but I know it will be beautiful still. A piece of art, someone truly put their feelings and creativity inside.
I'm really looking forward to the results of this shooting, and besides that, I love our new products ! I'm aiming to make Floralpunk become more and more what I would consider cool or beautiful, and I definitely have to go beyond jewelry for that. The next step would be shoes. I love shoes. Shoes are essential. Shoes change everything. Shoes are everything. So I can't wait to launch the new arrivals within the frame of the grand opening of our new store. Yes. New store. And a lot of work. And costs a lot of money. But I'm confident that it will be worth it. We finished the shooting today and tomorrow we will just take more photos for our instagram and film more content for a summer vibe Floralpunk video including the shoes and sunglasses and all. I guess that will be quick though. The rest is going to be chilling and eating. Enjoying the beach and pool.
