Such great weather we have been getting in Ireland these past two weeks. Summer has well and truly arrived. The sun is shining, festivals are in full swing and we can really enjoy all of the outdoor activities, such as going to the beach. Luckily, West Cork is full of beautiful beaches, one of them being Duneen Beach. It lies near the famous Dunmore House Hotel, overlooking Inchydoney Beach. As a photographer living in West Cork, it would be a shame not to use locations mother nature has given, especially when they are practically on your doorstep.
If you know me or are familiar with my work, you also know that I love conceptuality. Creative photoshoots presenting an artist’s design with heart & passion put into the process.
Ina Andriukaityte Leonaviciene is one of these artists, she is just amazing with coming up with an idea and making it happen. The outfits and accessories used for our photoshoot were all hand made by Ina! So, that’s it, a sunny Saturday at Duneen beach with Ina couldn’t result in anything other than some great images. Take a look below!
The whole idea was quite simple but required a lot of preparation. Ina made two matching outfits so we had more diversity. Fantastic designs and accessories, a beautiful, talented and experienced model, fantastic hair by Dana of HairStyles by Dana (nominated in Best of the Best in Hair & MakeUp competition hosted by Irish Hairdesser – big congrats Dana, you deserve it!), fabulous weather, amazing West Cork!
You know that feeling that you could do something better or there was something missing? Well, that feeling was definitely not the one to hit me during or after this photoshoot. I am delighted with the results. With the right people, working towards the same vision, willing to make it come true, it will happen. Woohoo!
Because who doesn’t like a few behind-the-scenes photos?
