Sonya and Owen
Mordialloc was the chosen location for Sonya and Owen’s shoot as it was the midway point between their home and ours. It’s a great place to meet people because the Bridge Hotel serves great coffee and the beach, jetty and park are great locations. This time the beach was off-limits though as it had been taken over by a beach rugby competition. Sonya wasn’t really suitably dressed to take part in that so we shot whilst we wandered down the riverside before detouring over to the park.
The shade under the trees provided some relief from the glare of the beach as Owen tried unsuccessfully not to squint, so here’s a good tip when heading off to a shoot at the beach – don’t wear your sunnies for several hours beforehand to help your eyes adjust to the brightness! Both Sonya and Owen did remarkably well though and we’re really pleased with the results!
