This was the photo shoot I produced and styled in February with photographer Esther Havens, her assistant Constance Dykhuizen, model Lydia Hutchison, makeup/hair artist Tiffany Schwedland, and product stylist and R+L founder Kirsten Dickerson.

This past February I traveled with Kirsten Dickerson, and photographer Esther Havens for Raven + Lily to capture how their soaps are hand made in Northern India. 

These soaps are all natural and make great gifts. They come in three different scents: chai spice, honey oatmeal, and mint.

It's official. The time has come for me to begin a new adventure. My time at Raven + Lily has been amazing and I am so thankful for every opportunity meeting artisans all over the world and working along side friends like Kirsten Dickerson, Sophia Lin, Cameron Crake, Tiffany Kunz, and Sarah Mark over the years. 

I'd like to introduce you to Courtney Rafter. She is the perfect fit to take the design reins for R+L and all the special challenges that come with working with artisan groups all over the world. She is a creative and joyful person through and through. I had a wonderful 2 weeks showing her the ropes and I look forward to traveling with her to India in October to introduce her to our partnership there. She has been working with Free People as one of their dress designers and I'm excited for the new perspective she will bring to R+L's product line.
