Black & Gold on the Florida Beach | Bared Soul Photo

When we get out of the auto-pilot that we can sometimes run sessions on and create something for ourselves. That's where the magic happens. Heidi of Bared Soul Photo did just that.

Here is what she had to say:

"I decided to make 2017 the year I would start creating more of what fed my creative soul. I have been learning to find things that inspired me outside of other talented photographers, so far that has been fashion, music, and nature. So when I saw this black dress, I knew I had to put together something amazing. Paired with gold bracelets and rings, it was a show stopper.
With Amanda as the hairstylist and Candace doing makeup, these babes helped bring this gold goddess to life. The sleek low bun paired with the dramatic gold leaf on the eyes were jaw dropping. It was a sleek sophisticated look with an edgy editorial vibe. Serious dream team of talent right here!
We took Kristy, our gorgeous model, to the infamous Pismo Dunes in California for a clean minimal back drop. The white sand made the black dress pop for sure. I even stepped outside of my "golden hour" comfort zone and shot in harsh light and I now have a new love for it. It helped showcase the gold leafing and created beautiful shadows. If you haven't shot in the harsh, direct sun I definitely challenge you to do so- you won't be sorry I promise!
Initially when I was putting this shoot together there wasn't a specific theme, but as I was shooting her with the ocean in the background it hit me. She reminded me of a gorgeous Siren waiting for the next ship to sail on by. This beautiful creature luring in sailors with her enchanting voice and stunning beauty.
I am completely obsessed with how this shoot came to life, it was better than I planned for. It's always nice when you are 100% stoked with something that you created. Excited to create more magic this year!"

My name is Heidi, my business is Bared Soul Photo. I am located on the Central Coast of California, where I live with my husband and two little humans. I am fueled by being creative and I have a passion for creating beautiful things. I specialize in portrait work with an editorial feel. Photography has been a part of me for many many years, I learned on a film camera in High School, but it wasn't until 3-ish years ago I decided that this is something that I wanted to be my main focus as a career. Photography has helped me gain confidence in so many ways and opened up so many avenues for me. I love seeing my work grow and always look forward to the next path it takes me down.
