Portrait Session | Portobello | Shawna ("Exploring Edinburgh")

I very recently had the privilege of meeting the wonderful Shawna of Exploring Edinburgh, a blogger and Instagrammer I’ve followed and admired for some time. Shawna’s photography style captures Edinburgh (and beyond) so elegantly, celebrating it’s rich culture and heritage, not to mention array of cafés, restaurants and bookshops around the city.

Shawna kindly agreed to let me photograph her around Edinburgh’s picturesque Portobello for the afternoon. I was so excited as this is one of my favourite places to shoot people! Portobello is blessed with just over 2 miles of sandy dunes, making the ideal coastal backdrop; everything you need for those soft, dreamy portraits!

After fuelling ourselves with baked goods from local bakery, Twelve Triangles, we made our way to the promenade to begin the shoot. Below you’ll find a selection of images from the day.
