What happens when super talented women come together, MAGIC! I was planning HERE & THERE's last branding session in the ocean with two free diving (badass) ladies, when I thought to reach out to another creative, Jessica. Jessica is the amazingly talented woman behind the adorable, hand sown, swimsuit line, HALIA & JADE. She agreed and hand made these reversible suits for Natasha and Jasmin. It fuels my soul to be around such brilliant ladies and I was honored to work with each and every one of them!
This morning did not go quite as planned. We were supposed to have a beautiful sunrise session but the rain decided it had other plans. As I drove to Tumon, I hoped that it would stop and the sun gods would give us some amazing colors with all the clouds, but as the sky became lighter, nothing happened. We tried to wait it out but eventually I decided to change my plan for the session. I went ahead and put my underwater housing on my camera and we got into the water. The rain became a drizzle as we started to shoot and a hint of color came out in the distance for a brief second but that was all we got. The storm made the water cloudy and all of my envisioned underwater shots didn't turn out like I had hoped. I also learned that water specs/streaks are image killers so remember to wipe the lens port off when you are in and out of the water a lot. The upside to all of this is we had a great time playing in the water, the weather gave the images the moody vibes I like, and overcast days make for amazing light. Don't worry, you will see these mermaids again! If you haven't already on INSTAGRAM because I am behind on blog posts. XO
