I love photographing Karla. She's got that cool girl vibe and can channel so much thought into her gaze. She knows her angles and does her own makeup flawlessly like a boss. We went out to beach and sand dunes, and this ended end up being my favorite look. 


Continuing on with my sand dunes o̶b̶s̶e̶s̶s̶i̶o̶n̶ series, I think this was the first time I've ever embraced shooting in direct sunlight. Sure it was golden hour and all, but something just felt right, almost spiritual. The sun was my beauty dish. And it was perfect. 

Making my selects from the flowing dress outfit, I love this image the most, because it's so natural and candid. It was our last shot of the day, and the breeze was coming in as nightfall encroached. The full moon lingered in the background against the pastel sky and everything felt...magic. 

I'm still obsessed with the dunes. It's a limitless playground full of so many opportunities, and I only wish that I'd discovered it earlier during my time in SLO. But I'm so glad we managed to squeeze this shoot into our last week of school. I can't wait to come back to these dunes and experiment with nudes! (Eeeeeeep so much excitement!) Any volunteers?
