Bohemian Styled Shoot in Barnegat Light, New Jersey

On a cloudy day in early June, a group of vendors got together and created this amazing beachside styled session. The goal of the shoot was to capture the intricate details of foot jewelry, hand chains and hair jewelry made by Anna at Bare Sandals.

Besides photographing the jewelry, Anna also wanted to involve unique vendors who really took pride in their work. Kite and Butterfly sent two gorgeous gowns from their collection. Twining Vines handmade a flower bouquet with bright colors and beachy accents to go hand-in-hand with the beach themed shoot. TI Bridal Designs handmade gorgeous sashes. The rings were from Boho Moon and Cecile Jewelry.

When it came to the photography, Anna knew just the man for the job. She and Michael had previously worked together on a shoot she organized a few years back. Makeup Artist, Amy Schmoldt created a soft, natural makeup and hair look for the model.

Barnegat Light had it all – gorgeous high dunes, fine sand, miles of beautiful beaches, hidden rustic “nature walks” that led through the wilderness, and jetties that led into the ocean.

By either magical force or sheer good luck – the rain held out on the day of the shoot. It was a cloudy, but warm day. Initially, Anna was not thrilled about the cloudy skies. She wanted the sunshine and bright colors of the sky and ocean. However, after seeing the photos she realized that the clouds helped to bring out all of the gorgeous details she was hoping to capture and more.
