We’ve been super excited since our local street was newly paved last week and is the ultimate skate heaven for us girls. The afternoon waves were a little mixed up with a strong onshore – so we grabbed the boards and cruised Neptune to shoot the anticipated HerWaves ‘Rolling Single’ Tank.

With the past couple months bringing less than exciting swell and keeping us photographers dodging rain showers, many emails have been appearing in my inbox asking for all kinds of ‘other’ photography. Usually I’ve got weeks of surf photo shoots scheduled in my diary, and am up to my eyeballs in edits for wave hungry surfers. This little bit of unusual downtime for me has been super exciting and allowed me to branch out from my daily norm and embark on exciting projects with incredible people.
I first met Jennipher founder of Her Waves through my surf photography not too long after I’d started out. I snapped a few pics of her surfing at Beacons and she’s always frequently turned up to shoots and collected some amazing shots of herself surfing. She approached me to help with photos for her awesome start up brand ‘Her Waves’ that she needed for her website, social media. I love new and exciting projects and especially with companies that rally resonate with my core values. It’s been so awesome to work with her on this fun project, and I’m excited for many more to come.
Many of you may have seen my recent model search post. I was totally overwhelmed with your support. Over 250 people reached out to help and I’ve been stoked to be able to include so many of you in some fun projects over the coming month – THANK YOU ALL!!!
So here’s a few pics from our shoot at Beacons last weekend. Rain threatened (as usual this winter) but somehow luck was on our side – the clouds parted, sun shone and even the surf turned on! Here’s a little peek of some of the shots from the session below – and don’t forget to check out www.herwaves.com for THE MOST AWESOME apparel for surf girls!
It’s been a pretty wintery winter here in San Diego which has firmly put the brakes on a fair few days of surf photography. Instead of despairing at the dirty water, driving rain and blown out conditions I’ve taken some time to meet up and shoot with the awesome lady shredder behind an Encinitas emerging apparel company – Her Waves.
Femininity with an adventurous edge. Surf inspired clothing designed for women by women “http://www.herwaves.com
HER WAVES is a female run, female driven company that fusions together a love of surfing, skateboarding and community friendships – forget the butt shots, social stigmas and high end fashion that so often engulfs the world of women’s board sports . If you ‘love to hate’ major surf labels, struggle to find your niche when it comes to wardrobe choices and want something a little sassy and unique – look no further than HER WAVES. Their line of tees and tanks (coming soon) are printed on eco-conscious, luxuriously soft materials and come in a variety of beautiful designs and colors that will compliment every outfit in your closet. Working closely with other female artists, skaters, surfers and women who are passionate about their sport and lifestyle – I’m excited to see this awesome little company grow over the coming months.
As a photographer and small business owner I understand that high quality, professional images for your company (no matter how big or small) is at the heart of great branding and advertising for your product. I spent some time the past week with Jennifer from HER WAVES learning about her brand, her love of surfing/skateboarding and the passions that drive her company. She’s an incredible and talented visionary and I am super excited to work with her in creating content for her website and social pages!
