It’s no secret, sunrise at the Byron Bay lighthouse is one of our favourite things about living here. What a better combination we thought, than the sunrise plus a photoshoot!
Sometimes, having a tight schedule to nudge you into action is the perfect ingredient for making amazing things happen. This is exactly what we experienced last week, and look at the result! With less than three days to plan an entire shoot and rally an amazing team to make it happen, the pressure was well and truly on. We think the images speak for themselves, but we can’t praise enough, all the creative individuals who came together.
Our beautiful model Grace was leaving Byron Bay, and we couldn’t let her leave without shooting her and her gorgeous nails! River Hazel (of Hazel and Herb) drove from Tambourine Mountain to photograph the sunrise shoot at our favourite Byron spot. The 5am call time meant we were all still waking up when we arrived, but the amazing Zoe and Alisha from Byron Dry Bar were straight into action with hair and makeup, just in time to capture the first shots at the sun peeked over the horizon. Katie from Wild Goat Events was our super-last-minute addition but wow, did she deliver! Tropical fruit platters, chia puddings, muesli cups, banana nut and seed loaf, it was never-ending! The mouth-watering vegan picnic was styled with her treasures collected from her Moroccan travels, as well as locally sourced designs. We honestly couldn’t have asked for a better team to help portray our locally created nail polish.
The lighthouse at Byron Bay is the most easterly point of Australia, and sees the first light in the morning before anywhere else. We wanted to capture the true spirit of Byron for this shoot, and what better way to do so, than watching sunrise at the Byron Bay lighthouse.
