A Beach Styled Shoot

July 14, 2021

How in love with this styled shoot am I? Wow it was a perfect evening at Meig's Point Hammonnasset State Park in Madison, even with the moments of heat. This shoot was put on by Colleen Lennehan and it didn't disappoint. I've done many other shoots but something was different about this one. Perhaps it was the relaxed atmosphere of a tucked away beach spot or the total number of attendees.

There were only 5 photographers and all the ladies were so sweet and there was even someone there to take photos of all the behind the scenes. There are so many photos I can use for marketing it's unbelievable. I even got some headshots taken by the hostess and I was just barely pregnant! I love that I have these to look back on during this time in my life.

Our model couple was a real life dream who are set to be married later this year. The weather was HOT and HUMID but the breeze came through off the water which was refreshing! Also the evening capped off with exploding champagne and a toast to a wonderful time together & future community!
