Sunsets On The Beach


A flowing black dress on the beach

Here’s one of the first sets of photos that we shot on the beach in St. Ives a couple of weeks ago. I’m sure you already know by now after seeing my St. Ives photos, just how gorgeous of a location it was, so shooting a look on the beach was an honour! I’ve never really done beach locations before due to where I live and not being anywhere near, so doing something different like this was fantastic. We made sure we were approaching the golden hour in the evening too, just as the sun was setting so that the lighting was perfect, with that gorgeous glow. I think I can safely say that these are some of my favourite photos we have ever shot!

In terms of my outfit, I can’t say that I was wearing many pieces as I only had on my RARE Hi Lo dress which is one of my favourites, my Olivia Burton butterfly watch and my Ray-Ban mirror pink aviator sunglasses. I didn’t have any shoes on as I wanted to really embrace the beach living, including having air dried hair all day to really get that beach waves look. Unfortunately the sea was freezing at that time in the evening though so I didn’t take many photos in it, but we did get a couple! After this set, I still have two more looks that we shot on holiday, so I can’t wait to share those with you this week! I truly can’t wait to go back to St. Ives and I really hope you like these photos as much as I do!

    This is such a strong collection of photos and I have to agree that you chose exactly the right time of day to have them taken. Those long evening shadows certainly add something. πŸ™‚

    It’s a beautiful dress and you look so stunning in all of these photos. My favourite has to be the one of you sat against the varied greys of that stone wall with the sun lighting up your hair the rock to give almost a halo effect around your head – and then there’s the clever little flurish of the seaweed at your feet with seems to be matching your sunglasses in colour. πŸ™‚

    I must also comment on the last photo too where you’re walking towards the sea with your back to camera. This one has such an air of mystery and intrigue to it – and I find it slightly ghostly and haunting too. :O It’s the perfect shot to end on!!! Brilliant.

      Thank you so much Steven πŸ™‚ I’m really glad you liked these shots. I really love them. It’s nice being able to do something different and shoot some different type of shots, changing it up a bit πŸ™‚

        Yes, it’s a very different place indeed. I’ll look forward to seeing the other shoots you did there too. πŸ™‚

    Gorgeous photos! I love the one of you sitting on the rock wall πŸ™‚ I wish I could have seen more of the ocean when I was in the UK, I only got to walk on the beach in Edinburgh a bit. That dress is the perfect beach dress too! Breezy and pretty. Looks like this was a much needed vacation and I’m glad you enjoyed it!

      Thank you Lana! I can’t imagine the beach in Edinburgh is much like down South though as it’s usually colder that far up North πŸ™‚ If you ever come back, you should definitely go down south!

    Love the dress! Nice to meet you Lorna. We did not get to St. Ives when were in England (had to read your about you page to see if it was the Sydney or UK St, Ives) so it was great to see photos of the beach πŸ™‚

    • June 30, 2015 / 11:20 am

      Oh wow, if you thought it might have been in Australia that proves it really does look hot and exotic there! If you ever get a chance to go, you definitely should, it’s truly stunning πŸ™‚
