Photoshoot for The Golden Choke @thegoldenchoke
Photographer: NatVon Photography @natvonphoto
Model: Sarah Lynn of HMM Agency @marielynn27
Hair and Makeup: Macy Raye Graham at Vivace Salon Pleasanton @by.macy.raye
This photoshoot was a #GIRLBOSS collaboration between me and some of my hometown friends. Lanea Warren, founder and owner of The Golden Choke, creates the choker necklaces by hand, each with an added touch of a Swarovski crystal and a 24k gold bead. Her company's mission is to bring about awareness for domestic violence and sexual abuse, as well as encouraging women to embrace their sensuality. Hair and makeup styling took place at Vivace Salon, a luxurious salon with a patio and garden, in where we shot the first look. Macy worked her magic to create this flawless whimsical look on San Jose model Sarah Lynn. This is my second time shooting with Sarah. I love shooting with her because she has a beautifully unique way of portraying her essence and emotion through modeling. Soon after this shoot she shaved her head and headed off to Maui to explore. She stated that she shaved her head in order to work on inner confidence and said that, "I think especially these days girls worry about what they look like and what people think about them, but I say forget that because everyone is different and everyone deserves to be confident in who God has made them to be."
