Founder Trip: Behind the Scenes

Founder Trip: A word from Kirsten


Probably the best part of our recent trip to Africa was sharing the on safari photoshoot experience with some pretty awesome co-adventurers. My husband, Brandon Dickerson was our fearless and fancy-footed photographer, Sophia was the mega talented art director, Tiffany Schwedland was our wonderful hair and make-up gal, and I was the stylist for all the new looks. We truly had a blast together.


We were so excited to work with a lovely Ethiopian model, Zayid White, and we were extra grateful that her husband, Aaron, tagged along as a much needed camera assistant. My husband and I used to work together on music videos and photoshoots pre-Raven + Lily, so it was a real joy to get to collaborate again.




We shot on safari, at the village of our new Maasai partnership, and on location at two amazing hotels: Ngong House and Tortilis Camp. What a dreamy experience. The final images are amazing, but you'll have to wait until Spring 2014 to see them. Till then, I hope you enjoyed this little "sneak peak" from behind the scenes of our Kenya adventure and photoshoot!
