Cocoa Beach Tropical Photoshoot
Cocoa Beach and late spring vibes in Florida are certainly goals! But what about the warm and sunny days that are just around the corner? Although Florida weather can get all crazy during the summer, it's still one of my favorite seasons of the year!
I mean, who doesn't love swimwear and sunkissed skin? Ahhh...those summer days!
Inspired by the Color of the Year - Living Coral
Walks on the beach, surrounded by nature and sipping on Piña Coladas for days! Well, this is all I thought about when I came up with the idea for this photoshoot - inspired entirely by sunny beach vibes.
I only wished I could've had the time to prepare some Piña Coladas. Instead, the pineapple is queen and it was a prop for this shoot!
A huge part of my inspiration was the color Living Coral - the Pantone color of the year. I think that Coral has all the magical feels for a summer glow. It’s also subtle, yet bold enough to make quite an entrance.
The coral palette for the makeup was super important to complement the overall look I was aiming for. The makeup artist, Maddy the Artist, did an amazing job in bringing my vision to life. Glowy skin for the win!
Beach photos in Cocoa Beach
Let's face it, Cocoa Beach is...well, it's too much to handle! With a unique come-as-you-are vibe, and world-famous for its great surfing experience, it is definitely the place to be at this summer. Which is why this was also the perfect place for this tropical fashion photoshoot.
But, I won't lie to you. It was brutal! It was extremely hot and partly humid. My model Kyra did such a great job! I still can't believe how we pulled this off starting at 10 am out on the beach for photos. Lori Wilson Park was our main location, primarily because I love boardwalks. What can I say? I just do!
