Southern California Beach Day

Hello There Darling Nihan 

Sometimes we just need to follow our  heart and the sound of the waves when life isn't doing what you had planned. Lets just say, if we spend more time letting go of the things we can't control and focus on what we can the amount of freedom we will obtain is endless.  Here is what happened when I did just that. 

Lately, I have been feeling, like many others I know, that the world is in a funny place. I don't mean funny in a ha ha way, but more that it just has being feels off to me. So, I did what I always do when I realize this, I hop on a plane and change my scenery. 

So, what does this all have to do with the lovely you see below and in this blog title?  Well, she was a total stranger to me. I was shooting a bridal shoot on the beautiful beach here and she was an on looker of it all. Then, my scheduled boudoir client that I had set up was running late and actually ended up not being able to make it in time for our sunset beach session. This is where Nihan comes in. I took a deep breath, walked over with my camera in hand and boldly asked if she would step in as my beach boudoir model as I had 15 mins and thought she would be perfect. 

Here is the results! Oh boy, I am so glad I listened to the waves calling me to San Diego, not allowing fear to rule over me this day. I trusted my gut, 'changed my stars', yes that is A Knight's Tale quote, and got these shots. Nihan, you are stunningly beautiful, and I'm sure I'm not the only person who has ever told you that but more importantly, you trusted a stranger. You took a leap of faith with me and for that I am forever grateful. You are now an official Darling, like all my Hello There Darling boudoir clients. 

Much love & respect,
