After my recent shoot with Kristen, the Vampire Queen, for Halloween, I was contacted to do a series of portraits of a cosplayer, known as Adella, and her son in costume as the character Mera (Aquaman's wife) and their son Aquababy. The lovely Adella has a 2 year old son who is just as cute and blonde and precocious as the character and had no issue being dressed up to go play on the beach for the day with his mom.
After a slightly frantic few minutes chasing down Adella's mail courier to retrieve the package that had her key prop (her trident), we headed to El Matador Beach in Malibu a couple hours before sunset to get some gorgeous shots of Mera and her son playing in the waves and surveying their domain.
Once we were done with that look, I'd asked Adella if she'd model for me for another look I'd been wanting to do - one of a more editorial summer surfer girl look. With her huge blue eyes and long dark hair, she's perfect for that look. And catching her right at sunset we were able to get some absolutely stunning images of her in the warm light.
More to come when the final edited shots are ready, but in the meantime, here's a few teasers images.
