It was fantastic to shoot again with the beautiful Jodie and Magda Dzieciatkowska, the first makeup artist I have ever worked with in my early days of working as a photographer. Seeing the girls for the first time in three years was really great and surreal, especially after so many months of the pandemic. After all the chats, a couple of cups of coffee, makeup finished, and outfits picked, we went to the beach. We were so blessed with the weather that day, it was obvious we won’t be the only ones out enjoying the sunshine. Dunnen Beach was our choice, because of all the gorgeous colours that the beach offers and all great variety of places, which can be used for your backdrop and give your images a totally different vibe. We took it easy, enjoying the process and also our stay there. We even had our kids there with us, Magda’s son and my two. Oh, how much giggles they had watching Jodie gets into the cold water!
To be fair, Jodie was open to all my crazy ideas. We went for two looks with two different makeups but kept it simple and classy. After the session, we all stayed on the beach for a couple of hours and I went for my once a year dip in the ocean. To finish the lovely day, we decided to have a gorgeous meal at the near Dunmore House Hotel.
Days like that stays with you for a long time, when you do what you love and are passionate about, spend time with your friends and family and enjoying the sunshine in the beautiful West Cork. Have a look below at the session’s outcome. Hope you like it and thanks for reading xx
