Northumberland Sunrise Session on the Beach
I actually didn’t think Fran and Dom would take me seriously when I suggested a sunrise shoot on the beach. But with Fran being an artist, she totally understood the potential of quality of the light at dawn, if there were no clouds!
As I drove up the A1 in the pitch black of 5am, fog and sea fret swirled around the car and the fields. It was atmospheric, but was hoping it would lift so that we would be bathed in golden autumnal morning light. Even when we arrived simultaneously at the our pre-arranged point I was not hopeful that the fret would lift.
Optimistically we headed over the huge sand dunes towards the sea. Max my pointer charged up and down the dunes like a dog possessed while Fran’s retriever just plonked himself in the nearest bit of dirty water he could find! Both typical to their breed.
Watching the Sunrise at the Beach
Just as the sun rose above the sea, the fret completely disappeared, giving us the most amazing colours as the light detracted onto the horizon.
Coast and Castles
Northumberland is blessed with wide, usually deserted sandy beaches and a fair few castles. It is pretty special when they are both in the same place, reminding us that the Vikings were just a long boat away.
My kind of couples
Embrace adventure, spontaneous, brave, chatty and authentic. And that why it was so amazing to meet Fran and Dominic before their wedding day in the Lake District next year. Without warning, they kicked off their shoes and a dash towards the sea followed by the dogs! I love it when people can feel so free to do things like this.
Pushing Boundaries and Creating Art
With Fran being an artist I knew that she would appreciate their photo shoot images being pushed a bit further to create a unique vision from the session.
I do love engagement and couples shoots. No timeline or guests to think about and the freedom to create images that you want to have for your gallery wall.
Want to book and Engagement or couples shoot. I work all over Northumberland, Cumbria, and Scotland. Head over to my session shop here.
