LIYA Collective

With the intention of creating minimalist, sustainably made accessories that honor the traditional skillsets of the region in which they’re made, while providing safe, fair employment and supporting the local economy, a couple of years ago Deanna started developing LIYA Collective‘s first collection of classic silk scarves while living in Bangkok. Having lived around the world working for nonprofits, social enterprises, and sustainable businesses, LIYA Collective was born while Deanna was working on an international development project with USAID. A couple of countries later, Deanna and I connected in Costa Rica in January as she was preparing for the launch of LIYA Collective’s website. From Deanna’s first email, I knew I just had to work with this awesome, creative woman to help bring her vision to life with lifestyle brand photos in Tamarindo Costa Rica — all planned, photographed and delivered within a month of Deanna’s first email! Thanks to Deanna’s clear vision, we worked closely to coordinate models (thanks Shauny + Elsa — you two rocked it!), makeup (always love workign with you Tricia!), lighting, shot list, and locations.

Deanna, thank you for entrusting me with your vision and I can’t wait to work with you again!

And thank you Deanna for your beautiful review!

“I worked with Kristen for brand photography for my accessory brand, LIYA Collective. From the moment I first contacted her, she was friendly, professional, and quick to respond. Her editing and photography style were already exactly what I as look for, but she went over and beyond to make sure she understood my vision for the shoot, through location scouting, reviewing the shot list, and recommending other vendors. She made all the women we photographed with feel so comfortable in front of the camera, and was amazing at giving prompts to capture those natural, candid moments. I’ve had the images described as “drool-worthy”, “stunning”, and “jaw-dropping” and I couldn’t agree more. Finally, her turnaround was incredible – I was blown away with how quickly she was able to deliver the final images from the session! I would love to work with Kristen again in the future and would recommend her to anyone!” – Deanna, Owner @ LIYA Collective

 

XOXO,
Kristen
