My alarm was buzzing at 6:30 yesterday morning. Before the sun had even started rising I was stumbling in the dark looking for clothes and gathering camera gear. My two friends and I decided to head to the beach for a styled shoot. We plopped into one car and raced to San Simeon beach to make it before the clouds burnt off. (We didn't make it) My good friend Kelsey was kind enough to strip down to a tiny black swim suit, hidden in the forest by the coast. The trees provided shade but not protection from the brisk morning. As we painted her body, teased her hair and threw dirt on her skin she tried to keep her body from shivering.
We stayed there all day taking photos until noon until our spouses met up with us and we all enjoyed kayaking and soaking up the warm afternoon sun.
We finished the night with warm homemade cookies and football watching. All in all we called it a success.
These are only just a handful of the different outfits and styles we did that day. I will share more soon!
