The Magic of Cornwall: The Siren of the Sea

by marianne

Ever since I moved to Cornwall, I’ve yearned to do a shoot that incorporated some of the stunning scenery here, from the beautiful beaches to the magnificent cliffs with views over the majestic Atlantic Ocean, combined with the kind of portrait photography I want to do more of in the future. When I came across Lucie, who’s a local surfer and a model, I knew she was a ready-made Siren of the Sea, and I couldn’t wait to photograph her!

Putting this shoot together was also a chance to get to know and work with some of the incredibly talented suppliers in the local area, and I really couldn’t have been happier with our little team. Here’s to creating many more beautiful things together in the future!

I hope you’ll enjoy these images, and perhaps even get inspired to travel down to the breathtaking North Cornwall to have your very own day as a Siren!

I felt compelled to comment just to say that these are some truly beautiful photographs. I felt mesmerized by them.

Having visited Cornwall myself a number of times (and also grown up near the cliffs of the UK’s East coast), they certainly resonated with me in terms of the photography approach and also on a personal level.

Great job.
