Sun, sea, sand. Seapoint Beach Photoshoot.

This. The height of summer, a heat wave in Dublin. The perfect time of year for a beach photoshoot, bare foot in the sand.

I love the pastel mood of this lifestyle photoshoot. Everything looking so soft & feminine. A floaty dress is a classic for creating this dreamy romantic mood. The stillness of the water and the peace of the blue sky with barely a cloud, adds to the feeling of calm.

Low tide at Seapoint, Dublin, is perfect for stepping out on to the beach, exploring sand flats, rock pools....The rocks make perfect places to perch and admire the view. In a candy floss pink dress it was wonderful to be able to wade out further into the (...not so cold...) water towards a rocky outcrop that provided a pleasing focal point.

I love the hat too! Hats provide a great focal point. A bold circle against the horizontal line of the horizon.

I didn't need to do to much editing with these. Just some tweaks with contrast and exposure. A burst of glow. A pop of vibrance. Still keeping everything really natural and authentic. I think these would look lovely on my museum quality mat prints.

Being in Dublin in July has been wonderful and so summery this year. Long may it last!

For more lifestyle & family Dublin photoshoots in the sun, sea, sand - contact me. I love doing feminine portraits, really exploring the look & feel of the moment. Have a lovely weekend in the sun.
