sunrise shoot

Sometimes the sunlight shines beauuuuuutifully into my bedroom in the morning. Whenever I have time I like to try and be creative with it.

On Sunday I opened my curtains to the lovely sunrise beaming through my nets and casting pretty patterns on my walls. I just knew I had to make the most of it!

Of course I would normally get all glammed up to take photos but I didn’t have time.

The sunrise wasn’t going to last forever so I set up my tripod and pointed the camera at my bed. It would’ve looked a lil suspicious if someone came in, hah!

With no makeup and without even brushing my hair (yikes) I sat by my pillows to see how the lighting looked for my sunrise shoot. But then someone else decided they wanted to be the photo subject instead…

Once I’d got my adorable poser of a dog to budge, it was time to snap some pics.

I chose to wear my gym shorts and a black bandeau. Mainly because I was tired and in a rush before the sunlight disappeared, but also because I wanted the colours to be quite neutral.

I was focusing on the light and shadows and how they were falling against my skin. That led to some distant shots and others close up.

My favourite is tied between the shadows on my back and one of the shots of me playing with my hair. Maaaaaan, that sunlight made my hair look more ginger than it ever has. I bloody love it!!

It’s funny because this is one of the photoshoots I’m most happy with and I’m at my most natural state. Tired, bare faced and a little bit naked.

I let my creativity flow with this sunrise shoot and I’m so proud of how they’ve turned out.

It also makes me feel more positive about my struggles to plan and constantly stay on top of my content, because being spontaneous this time has given me some pretty cool pics and a tonne of inspiration.
