Photography by Johanna Love – Jewelry by Sharona Nissan

We are joined today by a remarkably talented duo: Stampington’s Director of Photography, Johanna Love, and Assistant Photographer, Jessica Wolfe. They’re here to give you a sneak peek at the stunning Coto de Caza photo shoot found in this month’s Belle Armoire Jewelry.

When Sharona Nissan’s lavish, intricately fashioned jewelry collection was selected to grace the pages of Belle Armoire Jewelry, the first step was to find the perfect photo shoot location to highlight each piece. Nestled in a quiet corner of sunny Southern California, the charming family-owned farm, Coto de Caza, is just moments away from our Stampington headquarters. Beaming with life, the organic elements found on the farm add a primitive feel to the textured backdrops in the photo shoot. From a ripe harvest of green foliage to vintage heirlooms, saddles, and boots, the scenery feels like a natural home to each western-style jewelry piece.

“Johanna and I decided on my family equestrian ranch, Coto de Caza, because the jewelry seemed very western-inspired to us.  We knew that at my farm there would be plenty of rustic background options – from the railroad ties that we used as steps in the backyard to my mother’s vintage saddle,” says Jessica.
