Collaborating with local creatives is one of the biggest reasons I love living and working in D.C. The community here is so vibrant and it's exciting to be able to work with some really amazing entrepreneurs. Case and point: Designs by s.e.K! I worked this year with Sarah, of Designs by s.e.K; an amazing jewelry line made right here in the District. Sarah and I met as so many of us to - on the 'gram! Who would have thought that a little IG liking and messaging would have turned into this great working relationship!
I photographed and styled Sarah's Spring line and I even got an opportunity to bring some of her jewelry to Panama, and use a friend as my model to get some great beauty shots. Honestly, one of the most fun projects I've worked on to date! Sarah's jewelry has an emphasis on natural stones and beads and they photographed beautifully in the beach scenes we shot in Panama. I can totally see this jewelry being a perfect summertime staple, especially as many of the necklaces are versatile; you can wear them long or wrapped, for a layered look! Check out Designs by s.e.K and get your hands on these pieces before they're gone!
Shout out to my awesome models: Morgan, Sarah, Selina, Kara and Mallory!
