The beach has always been my happy place! I was born in Greece and moved to America with my family when I was about 6 months old. We would try to go back to Greece in the summer to visit our family there and I remember spending almost every morning on the beach. I think that those wonderful memories are why being on the beach always has a special place in my heart.
From the simmering sun, to the hot sand, to the mesmerizing sound of the waves splashing about, the beach has always been the most relaxing place for me. It has always been a place where I can hit the refresh button my brain and just relax.
This past weekend, we celebrated one of my Best Friend’s Birthday in Newport, Rhode Island. From the amazing seafood to the quaint shoppes, this little beachfront city has always been one of my favorite places in the world. It’s like being in a Hallmark movie every day.
“The ocean stirs the heart, inspires the imagination and brings eternal joy to the soul.”
For this shoot, we were a little crunched on time. My Zoom meeting ran longer than expected and we were starting to run behind schedule for the day. One of the first things I added to my to-do list for the trip was a doing a photoshoot on the beach at golden hour. It’s my favorite time of day and I really wanted to have a moment with the magical pink sky and create some beautiful content.
Because we were running a smidge late (and it wasn’t my fault this time!), I needed to put together an ensemble that I could wear to the photoshoot on the beach and could also go right to dinner with after.
