Last week I got back from first international vacation of 2021 and it refuelled my passion and love of travel. Mark and I have a few small trips planned for August and all three are out of the country (if you are liberal and count Scotland as another country, Scotts do). The first two, Edinburgh and Chicago, will certainly be city breaks but the last week of August I hope there will at least be one or two days of sun and sand in our holiday.
I mention this because while in Madeira on two different occasions I saw girls doing photoshoots, one on a cliff edge and one on a volcanic beach. Instantly I was jealous even when I looked down and realized what I was wearing was not something I would want to shoot as an outfit for the blog (similar to what I wore at the Mayfield Lavender Farm). That said, I hope next month I can plan ahead for the location, bring a cute outfit, and get some photos like these gorgeous beach photoshoot shots below.
And no, I am not planning on hiring a photographer to do these but will be asking Mark. His skills have evolved massively over the past 2.5 years and I love how these photos he took a few weeks ago in the red jumpsuit came out. I have learned he does tremendously well with visuals so I will show him these shots and then hopefully I can recreate these poses in a beach photoshoot in my own way.

I was very deliberate in the photos I chose here because I wanted to find ones that were not cheesy couple photo shooots or shoots with elaborate drones but also were not Sports Illustrated models and super unrealistic. Between all of these I think I will be able to make something work!
Would you ever do a beach photoshoot ?
