For a few fleeting moments, it was only us, the sand, the sea, the soft wind and the golden sun peeking over the horizon. Peaceful, with not a soul to be found, it felt like this was our private little beach and we had a front row seat to admire the spectacle, only for us to see. Describing the view as “breathtaking” is definitely an understatement.

And awesomely, all my favourite colours were present, getting together in a glimmering gathering right where the sea meets the sky… The dim warmth and glow of the sun completed my outfit, bringing out the blue and orange tones of my H&M leaf-print culottes jumpsuit. Oh, what can I say about this marvellous jumpsuit… Comfortable in its luxuriousness, sophisticated in its simplicity, it was just the ideal pick for a breezy summer day (Okay yes, I had to check in the dictionary to make sure “luxuriousness” exists…). But what really stole the show were these coral blue statement earrings, giving the whole look an exotic vibe.

Suddenly I thought to myself: “I should have brought some satin floor cushions, fresh fruit and candle holders… This could have been the perfect moment for the most fabulous seaside sunrise party (ever).”

But let’s be real now, not everything is as glamorous as it seems. Arriving on time for such an early affair, bronzed makeup on fleek and photoshoot-worthy hair ready, is no joking matter.

As I was making the math the day before, my heart sank. ‘Hmmm, so the sun goes up at 6:15 am and we have a one-hour drive until the location. I never seem to have enough time to make up and get ready, but hey! Waking up at 4 should be enough, right? RIGHT?’ Of course, the 3-hour long night could have been avoided by going to bed a little earlier, but sure enough, there was an obstacle to that too (Thank you, little brother for graduating precisely that day!).

The result: Five coffees for the photographer, an ice-cold morning (or late night if you prefer) shower for me, and the sudden desire to pose on the ground for the majority of the shoot. In spite of the sleep deprivation, my enthusiasm was unstoppable. Ultimately, this shoot greatly magnified my beach sunrise cravings. Oh well, I guess I will have to make a hobby out of this from now on!

Next Sunday, 6:15 am. I’ll see you there!
