Be My Muse with Megan Durand
Today, I bless you with the beautiful Megan Durand. Remember when I had my first photoshoot with Mackenzie Chrzanowski? Well, turns out Megan has been friends with her since the 6th grade, so it was really easy to break the ice with her. We've been planning this shoot for about a week or two, and we were both REALLY excited for it.
We planned to meet at Point Dume at 11AM, and we were both so excited that we got there 30 minutes early. While I was waiting for her to walk to the end of the beach, I spent some time watching the whales that were close to the shore. They were singing so loudly that you can feel the vibrations through the ground. It truly was an amazing experience!
After meeting up, we had to climb a few rocks to get to a beautiful private section of the beach which is where we took all of the shots. When we got to the other side, we were greeted by a huge sea lion that looked like he just wanted to tan in peace. The closer we got to him, he literally started posing for the camera! I had no choice but to take some photos of him before we went our merry way.
I actually gave Megan the opportunity to choose which of my series she wanted to be a part of, and she chose the Be My Muse series, and wow am I glad she did! The photos we took are magical! Enough talking, let's get to the interview!
