Behind the Scenes . The Lacquerologist


I am so excited to bring you this post on a behind-the-scenes-look at Emily, The Lacquerologist! When Emily first started her blog on nail lacquer and nail art, I knew I HAD to get some pictures of her amazing work and show them off here! If this is your first time seeing her work, I encourage you to take some time and check out everything she is doing on her blog! You surely won’t be disappointed in what she has to offer the world of beauty!

If you are already an avid fan and loyal follower of The Lacquerologist, I want to say welcome to my blog! I am a beginning photographer with a passion for blogging–so I mixed the two together to create what you are seeing now! I would love for you to take some time to check out my website, like me on facebook, or subscribe to the blog! You can also follow me on twitter or pinterest. I love connecting with people, so if you have a blog yourself, feel free to leave the url in a comment below!

Emily started blogging on The Lacquerologist around the same that I started blogging here for Jen Stem Photography. We found that every time we have been together since, we talk nonstop about our joint passions – blogging about what we love doing! So, I am so excited to bring you a behind-the-scenes look at the person with the passion behind The Lacquerologist!

Emily, The Lacquerologist, is married to one of my cousins and resides in the beautiful Midwestern United States.  When she is not working on her nails or discovering new polishes to try, she is busy pursuing her master’s degree. Emily is the type of person who puts her heart and energy into everything that she does while maintaining a level of joy for life that is simply contagious. When I am around Emily, the world seems to be a brighter and greener place (both figuratively and literally–Emily is a huge fan of going green!). :)

I love everything that Emily is doing with The Lacquerologist. From her blog, she shows nail art that inspires readers to try new products or designs. From her facebook and twitter, she is always updating her fans and followers on new giveaways and any other information that is important to the world of lacquer. Her posts are as creative as they are informative. I can’t wait to see what she will post about next!

A little while back, I was able to spend an afternoon photographing The Lacquerologist at work. I hope that, when you look at the photos below, you are able to get a better glimpse into the surroundings where Emily’s creativity is at work. Below you will see the face behind the Lacquerologist, some candid photos I took around the room, and a wonderful new nail design called the sunset explosion mani that she is trying out. I had so much fun taking these pictures! I can’t wait to try this out on my nails as well!
