One of the things that I love about photography is that it allows you to create without having to worry about much. Show up, shoot stuff and see what you get! That's how this day went down. What started out as in impromptu lifestyle shoot, turned into an afternoon full of sun, sand and the occassional seagull fight.
Shot in Long Beach, my friend Elwa and I were tasked with showcasing one of the newest pieces from Moonglow Jewelry in Miami, Florida. We decided this would be the perfect opportunity for a Boho-chic inspired shoot that brought together the intrinsic beauty of both her and the necklace. With the help of the beach and the impending sunset, the scene was prime for some of my favorite images I've captured this year.
Thanks again to Elwa for being such a consistant joy to work with. Also, thanks to Moonglow Jewelry for providing us with the "Meteor in Silver" necklace you see below.
When it rains, it pours... and then hails... and then rains some more. That is the way this shoot began. Thankfully, it is not how it ended.
Before things got started, I knew I wanted to try something new in regards to shooting style and the way I edited the images. From the get go, I knew I wanted to use natural light because of the simplistic qualities it brings to each image. I also knew the natural look of things would be hightened by what I was planning on doing in post. As you can see, each image has it's own raw and untouched quality to it.
I'd like to give a big thank you to Tina Manera for the zeal and charisma she brought to the shoot. We trudged through every type of weather that Malibu could throw at us and I am thilled by the images we created.
