While I was holidaying on the Gold Coast over Summer I had the desire to do a beach shoot so I asked actress/singer Jess Potts if she'd like to model for me. I wanted to keep the shoot simple, natural and carefree with simple styling, hair and makeup. I purchased these lovely dresses from Vinnies on the way to the shoot and also popped into the florist to get some flowers.
It was raining on and off and we managed to shoot for just over an hour. It really was a beautiful morning and it reminds me to always get shooting whenever a wave of inspiration hits (even if I'm on holiday!) because it's often these last-minute shoots that turn out to be the most magical.
