Photoshoot Friday, Charleston Tea edition

Charleston Tea

I always love when Thea pings to set up a photoshoot. She comes stocked with ideas for styling, props and location. Invariably we leave the prop bag in the car, but I love the energy she brings to a shoot. She’s so much fun to shoot with, and I think that comes through in the photos. I never have to ask her to laugh or smile, she’s always just ready.

We had a specific beachy theme in mind for this shoot, but the weather wasn’t cooperating in the slightest. We’d planned on cut-offs and flipflops, but what we got was drizzle and temperatures in the 30’s.  We drove around the North Shore for a bit looking for just the right spot, but in the end, this beach in Nahant was perfect. We got out of the car to take some test shots and it was SO DAMN COLD we decided to just knock the whole thing out right then and there.

The weather isn’t everything though, I think we got that beachy casual feeling without the sunshine and warm weather.

The pattern is Charleston Tea, by Thea Colman. (Or find it here on Rav.)

    Always so much fun to spend the day with you (and your fabu stylist), regardless of the climate!

    Just wait till you see what 3 random schemes I have in mind for next time :-) And all 3 different from the other, just to keep you on your toes. There could be a 4th if I get my act together in time, too!
