Hello friends, I hope you’re all having a fantastic weekend! Mine has been fun, productive and enjoyable. After spending a lovely Friday night sipping cocktails at The Lula Inn, I took my friend Jess out to Takapuna today for a portrait photoshoot. Takapuna is such a beautiful, diverse place to be – and to shoot. I love the variety we managed to get just by exploring the shops on Hurstmere Road, the restaurants by the beach, the trendy fairy-lit food alley, and more. My favourite photo is the very first one on this blog – we were walking along Hurstmere when this bright, radiant store caught my eye, and I just had to take a few shots. The peachy hues, gold floral decal, and Jess’s big smile made for the perfect photo!
We got hungry and ended the afternoon with delicious prosciutto & mushroom pizza and mixed berry & red wine sangria at The Commons. It is a cozy garden bar, and noticing a couch with cute cushions, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to take some naturally sunkissed portraits. Warm and vibrant, they’re an interesting contrast to some of the light and airy photos earlier in the day.
Overall, I’m thrilled with these headshots and portraits, and it is one of those days where I feel so lucky to have made my passion my vocation. I’ve added Headshots & Portrait Photography to the services I offer, so that I can help those of you who are looking for fresh new pictures to use for your personal social media, business/corporate profiles.. Or just because!
Have an amazing rest of the weekend – and, in this freezing cold winter, stay warm & well! x
