Lyra Aoko Photography – The Elements MAJI

We finally shot underwater. If you guys have been keen, I started The Elements series in January with Moto.

Our initial shoot for Maji unfortunately had a few mishaps and we ended up postponing the entire project for a minute but God came through (like He always does. can I hear an Amen!)

The lovely Joy Kendi (One of Kenya’s top fashion bloggers and digital personalities) contacted me a few weeks later about a pretty cool project she had pitched to the team at Samsung Kenya for a collaboration feature. The Samsung s7 Edge in Coral Blue was the chosen device and the entire concept would be water themed. I was so grateful to the heavens because all the pieces of the puzzle fit perfectly with the initial Maji creative direction.

The shoot really could not have come at a better time because it’s Pisces season (Hello water children of the world).

I also got to test and use the Samsung S7 Edge in Coral Blue and the phone’s underwater capabilities truly surprised me!

View all the images from the shoot below.
