We're sharing our first blog post with you all today by showcasing images from our shoot for Ama Bikinis!
A brand we both have been loving for quite a while and we were so excited to come together for this collab for them!
We shot with our girl Shayla, (@shaylapenera) a photographer we both met through our own separate shoots and now she is a great friend that we adore spending time with!
Living in Southern California, Yes, its beautiful, but not so much tropical, athough I must say.. We do pretty dang good making it look like we took a day trip to Oahu.
I (@_gypseaa) was driving to meet with Annalisa and Shayla when I saw the location with the elephant ear leaves as I drove by. I had realized that it would be the perfect place to shoot as I was passing, so once I meet up with the girls, that's where we headed!
It was a crazy busy street, but the photo turn out made it oh so worth it!
For the props I wanted fun tropical fruit that would compliment the bikinis, so I picked up a mature coconut, and a Hawaiian papaya! We cut/broke them open & WALLA! The perfect tropical props!
For the other locations we just walked around the beach town, and also our weekly meet up place, Encinitas! We scouted the cutest locations, grabbed some hibiscus flowers and began shooting the same looks in new spots!
This shoot was one full of laughter and we made plenty of new memories! I loved hanging out with two of my fave chicks, shooting and eating tacos afterwards to celebrate a good day!
I hope you all enjoyed the first blog post and We can't wait for much more to share with you all!
