This photoshoot has been years in the making. We finally felt like we were in a position to bring down a team that was talented enough to show you just how much we love Guatemala and how passionate we are about making swimsuits that make women feel comfortable and beautiful. Bringing that team together was an integral part of this project: we needed creatives that were not only insanely talented at their craft, but that were kind, genuine, and willing to let their guards down, make some new friends and have fun. These were people that we would be trusting to represent our brand not just via their body of work, but individuals we would be entrusting to represent the QUALITY of people Albion chooses to work with and when it comes down to it, the people we are proud to consider friends.
Ultimately, we'd be sharing a huge part of our hearts with these individuals by bringing them down to see the country where I grew up, the factory where our clothes are made, and the people and places we care so deeply about. We could not have picked a better A-team because in the end, these fabulous human beings have made our hearts bigger and our lives fuller after being with them non-stop for 8 days in a magical place called Guatemala.
We will be sharing several awe-inspiring look books from Jessica Janae Photography over the next several weeks (be ready to blown away!). But first, here is the video that the insanely talented Something Devine created for us. Enjoy!
