Cool Beachy Blue // Lauren Werkheiser Photography Giveaway


Living near the ocean is still a new experience for me. Sometimes I forget that the edge of our continent is just across the street. Whenever I can, I like to wander over to the beach, not to swim or sun bathe, but to breathe in the salty air, to listen to the waves reaching the shore, to dig for treasures, and to just be still. I live so close to so many large, loud cities; and yet, I have my own little, quiet corner, where it can just be me, and this cool, blue sea.

These photos were taken by the amazing Lauren Werkheiser Photography. She is so fun to work with, down to earth, and easy going. She came prepared with a vision and was able to direct me to get these amazing shots. She is located in Delaware, and she travels around the north eastern united states. There is a giveaway at the end of this post, for those living in the NE area (open to all! not just bloggers), so keep scrolling!

I am in love with this hi-low dress from Rosewe, It flows so beautifully in even the slightest breeze. I love leaving it plain and simple like in this shoot or pairing it with jackets and sweaters. It felt like the appropriate dress for these photos- whimsical, dreamy, and blue, like the ocean.

dress- rosewe
shoes- jeffery campbell (on major sale! run small- size up)
necklaces- fifth & mae
watch- michael kors

Lauren is currently offering 25 minute mini sessions for $175 which includes fifteen retouched images on a cd and an online gallery, one 8x10 print, print release, and a one week turnaround time! She'll be offering these in Delaware on Oct. 26th and in Maryland on November 2nd; spots are limited, so book now if you're in the area!

She's also giving away a couple or engagement session to one of my readers! (must be scheduled within the next few months) You can enter, below...

I'd use it as a maternity photoshoot and wear one of the dresses that I'm hoping shows up this week :)

My boyf and I have no nice photos together, so I could take advantage of this!

Also, you look SO stunning in that 2nd b&w photo, Gentri! You're a natural beauty :)

Oops, I forgot to answer the question lol. I'd probably make him wear plaid and I'd wear my sweater dress. I have a fall theme in mind! :)

My husband and I haven't had any photos together since our wedding. i'd love to have some nice photos for Christmas cards and such. Love the photos by the sea too.

Gentri, I love love love this giveaway! I have been thinking of booking a couple session for Mike and I since we never took engagement photos. Because it's getting cooler, I'd love to take pictures all bundled up and have for our Christmas cards!

Jenelle said...

Didn't see the part about what we would wear- probably something warm, but I'm always looking for a good excuse to buy a new vintage dress or skirt.

Andrea said...

I'm seeing a lot of plaid flannel. That just screams fall to me. And I'd love to just really embrace the gorgeous fall colors in a shoot with my husband:)

If I won I would gift it to my sister-in-law who just got engaged and is visiting the area next month!

As photographer I love taking couple pictures but the last time that my husband and I have had pics taken is our engagement pictures (7 years ago). This would so fun to win.
