Business Photography Feature - Lumina Noctis // Artisan Botanical Perfumery & Herbal Apothecary

Some of you may know that along with photography and graphic design, I love natural perfumery and herbal skincare. I recently orchestrated a stylized photoshoot for my botanical boutique Lumina Noctis, highlighting some of my favorite handmade natural products. Here are a few sneak peeks of the freshly edited promotional product shots! (More are coming soon, but they won't be released until the new website is launched).

As always, Luminous Creative Studio is dedicated to supporting other small businesses and artisans. I would love nothing more than to set up a photography session for your business, whether you need new product photos, fresh content for social media, headshots, and more. Please feel free to visit www.marton.design for more examples of my graphic design / branding work as well: Whatever you dream, we can accomplish it together! 

All photographs, editing, branding, art direction, product concept, development and production are by me. Special thanks to lovely model Meg Eubank for providing gorgeous costuming and displaying these Lumina Noctis products with such elegance and grace!

ROSE FACIAL SERUM - This heavenly all natural triple rose facial serum is carefully made with a time intensive process of extracting the rich floral essence from rose petals, combined with a beautiful rose oil and lightweight antioxidant rich proprietary plant carrier oil that is excellent for all skin types. It leaves your skin moisturized, smooth, and divinely scented.

Friends, I LIVE for this serum. I use it all year long, and is an absolute life-saver in winter. I honestly don't know how people do life in winter without it! It helps my makeup go on smoothly and smells incredible. I also enjoy using it to tame flyaways, as a luxurious hair oil, and to add moisture love to any area that needs it.

Kumquat Blossom is a unique white-floral scent with a bitter orange heart to give it depth and complexity. This scent is special to Luminous Creative Studio's endeavors in particular, as it has been a hit at my wedding photography expos. I spray some of it around my booth, and within minutes people flock to my booth saying "OH, what is that wonderful smell?!"

Photography and perfumery are connected for me: branching from the same source of Romantic inspiration. With both, it is important to take in every moment by appreciating the beauty inherent in all things, and infusing layers of meaning into everyday life: whether that is an irreplaceable moment captured on camera, or an important memory directly connected to scent.
