Until The Sun Goes Down

On Thursday, Nadia and I spent the day together shopping. Afterwards, we headed to a park to take some pictures and later on we went to the beach to take pictures while the sun went down. Our mission: to take some nice silhouette shots.

When we got to the beach, the sun was getting ready to set.

We spent about two hours trying to find the perfect lighting and spots for the pictures, but it was definitely worth it. It seems that the more the sun went down, the better the pictures. These first couple were taken closer to the time we arrived.

The sun continued to set...

Still setting...

And we continued with our photoshoot:

[My favorite of her!]

[Her favorite of me!]

We also spent about an hour and a half of the 2 hours leaping and jumping around to try to get shots of us in the air.

After many failed attempts, we managed to get a couple airborne silhouette shots:

My favorite picture from the whole night came near the end. The lighting was perfect and we had finally found a really good spot on top of a small block that I think was some sort of little monument.

I'm really glad I have someone who is as enthusiastic and completely into taking pictures like this. She actually enjoyed running back and forth from the camera to the spot where we were standing for hours and she didn't care who was looking at us either. haha. I can't wait until our next shoot! :)


  1. These pictures are so pretty!! I mean it! I love the last two! haha, my friend and I also try to get jumping pictures ALL the time, it's so hard isn't it?? I wish I lived near water....

  2. All of the pictures are beautiful! I wish I didn't feel like such a dork about taking pictures, I ALWAYS feel like people are staring at me.

  3. So cute! And the lighting in some of these is just perfection. It's nice to hear your friend is into your photography hobby, it's always nice when someone takes interests in your interests. :)

  4. YES! i love this entry Sara! And of course we'll have more photoshoots and weird out some more people. :)

    We need a FIELD NOW.
