The beach is my happy place. Being there just makes me feel so at peace, so light, and so connected to nature. We were at the beach to shoot some photos for a sponsored post we had coming up. We just finished taking our photos and were about to leave, when I saw how particularly beautiful the ocean and the sky were looking. Sunsets are always beautiful but sometimes they are extra magical. The water shimmered and the sky was gorgeous shades of pinks, purples, and yellows. My heart was happy from all the time we had spent creating that day. At that moment, I just felt pure bliss. I told Bassam I’d be right back and I went skipping down the sand, close to the water. I decided that wasn’t enough, so I hiked up my dress and went into the water, frolicking, twirling, and splashing. Bassam took tons of photos and this particular one he caught just as I was hiking up my dress to go into the water. I got majorly wet, but it was worth it.
So now you know, all those twirling photos we post aren’t always staged just for the shot. Twirling is my favorite expression of happiness.
Here are some of the other shots Bassam took:
