Beach Portraits at Sandy Point Beach | Julia B

I can’t believe it’s been a year since I made things official and started my portrait photography business! When I was first starting out, I offered a bunch of sessions to people willing to be my “guinea pigs.” Julia was one of those people kind enough to volunteer! But I guess it must have been a busy year for both of us because we only just got around to doing her portraits. Julia wanted a joyful, free-spirited session so we planned the photoshoot for sunset at Sandy Point Beach in Portsmouth, RI.

Julia picked out the perfect outfit for her beach portraits – a long, flowy sundress. I brought along a fun, floppy hat for a touch of fun and class and she totally rocked it! To capture that carefree vibe Julia was hoping for, we ditched the shoes and focused on a lot of shots that incorporated movement and laughter. We had a great time and it felt more like hanging out than a portrait session (which is always my goal!)

Julia finished her session with a splash! Wanting to capture that joyful, free-spirited feel she was going for, Julia and her cousin took turns splashing in the Sakonnet River. Just because. And why not- photography should be fun, right?
