Heiress is a diamond themed shoot infused with high fashion beauty. Beauty photographer, Jesca Cluff, collaborated with an expert team to create these elegant looks. Jesca wanted to create a series of elegant portraits to show off designer’s pieces as well as add some dramatic flair to the series by burying the models in diamonds.
