behind the scenes part 1: first collection photoshoot.

going into the shoot for the first collection, we were a mix of nerves & excitement. putting together a group of creative personalities and hoping it would just work-- that doesn't happen so easily. but it did. and oh it worked so good.

i can't say enough about the talented kendall hanna. her photography and art direction is beautiful. but her intangibles make her a dream to work with: she's one of those people who's energy and authenticity seeps into the environment and effects everyone in a good and big way.

the 6 hours shooting was just fun. photoshoots are not usually this enjoyable.

if you were to cross paths with ashley landheer, she'd stop you in your tracks. she's a ray of beauty. effortless. but it's her nature that makes us love her, and not just our shared wanderlust. she's the real deal. before she starts traveling the world, we want as much of ashley as we can get.
