I love beach shoots, dare I say it but I think they are my favourite. There is something about being beside the sea, especially first thing in the morning. It is serene, quiet and thought provoking. Plus the colours are just so organic and lovely. I did many family shoots at the beach whilst living in Dubai and I am thrilled that I now only live 10 minutes away from the beautiful northeast coast in the UK.
This particular beach shoot …. I LOVE! It was recently featured on the very fabulous B.LOVED blog. Here is a little snippet of what I wrote for that post … ‘Cathy styled her girls beautifully, they both wore little grey tutu dresses, which were complimented by the lovely morning light perfectly. They also both wore hoody jackets to start with (believe it or not it can get a bit chilly in Dubai too), I thought this made for a fun look. As for Neve and Juno (how cool are their names?), two of the most beautiful little girls I have ever had the pleasure of photographing. Neve was the perfect 4 year old, she meet me with a great big hug (I had never meet her before) and got straight in to it, after calling me a ‘poo poo’ face a few times. Juno (2 years old) took a little longer to warm to me, but we explored the beach, found lots of fish, a cat and a pet starfish, which she tucked in to her pocket and was happy.’ – for more click here.
