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.
