Behind the Scenes - Devon Photo Shoot with Wake Boarder Lex Balladon - Nalu Beads Blog

Posted & filed under Featured, Lifestyle.

Two fun days were spent on our latest photoshoot, cosying up in a gorgeous Devon coastal cottage and wrapping up warm at the beach of Lee Bay and hunkering into a small local woodland.

The lovely laid back Lex Balladon was the perfect choice for a model. A keen outdoor sports lover who excels at wakeboarding, Lex brings a chilled out, contented vibe to the photo shoot. Her natural beauty and charm in a camera shot is ideal to showcase our latest bracelet designs set within in a relaxed comfy setting and within the amazing Devon scenery. Lex shows experience in modelling, giving Gareth, our chosen photographer, plenty of opportunity to capture different shots of her without having to promt her to move. Gareth captured each moment perfectly and provided Nalu with a large variety of great shots to use for future campaigns and social media.

The first shoot at the cottage started with rather gloomy weather and ended on a high note with sunshine streaming through the windows. Rae excellently guiding the photo scenarios, setting and tweaking clothes, jewellery and lighting. This lady expertly organised the shoot. There’s lots of elements to coordinate for the photoshoot to run smoothly, even before it’s even happening. We also discovered Rae’s hidden talent for fire starting, coaxing the fire in the log burner to burn brightly for the shoot. My job was the simplest, a few shots here and there of the photo shoot taking part for a morning.

We wanted to create hygge moment at the coastal cottage, a relaxed, comfy and cozy moment in time. Feeling warm in a nice safe spot, a hot brew in hand or a favourite book is very hygge. Nordic hygge is about getting back to basics and enjoying simplicity in life.

Towards the end of the first shoot at the coastal cottage the light changed dramatically, providing a lovely bright light to photograph in.
