Beach Surf Shoot on Style Me Pretty.

Did I ever tell you about this talented group of women that I'm involved with, that come together to create styled shoots showcasing this gorgeous province we live in? I'm sure I have here and here. They are all uniquely awesome in their own right. It's really a fun opportunity for me to work with them, as they are constantly inspiring me with their creativity and talent, pushing me to keep up! It forces me to think outside the box and create something different.

We've been published again on Style Me Pretty and seeing our work on their site certainly never gets old. This shoot was done on one of our National Park beaches here on PEI using a color palette of yellow, orange and turquoise inspired by the island beach landscape: sun, sand and surf. It was a relaxed affair, shot on a beautiful evening just as the sun was setting.

Here are some of my favorite photos from the shoot.

I used the picnic tables on site and covered them in burlap. Then, they were topped with simple striped runners and a diy fringe runner, using our color palette.

We received our flowers in bulk and I threw together 7 or 8 flower arrangements in a hurry! I like the relaxed feel of the arrangements using seasonal flowers. These were placed in vintage bread molds wrapped in ribbon.

What a fun evening!
