B+S: Beach babes in the golden Vanuatu sunset

Love story

Ben surfs barrels like he was born from the ocean. Sandrine dances on the enchanting rhythms of Tahiti with the grace of the sun. They have known each other since they were 16. That was 25 years ago. Hard to believe! They just look so young at heart and smitten, it seems like they have just met and swept each other off their feet. Honestly, if I have ever seen a man look at a woman like she is his everything, it’s Ben looking at Sandrine. And if I have ever seen a woman smile at her man like he is the only star in her entire sky, it’s how Sandrine looks at Ben. And call me corny, call me hopeless, but boy, that kind of love… sigh. I want to capture that every day. I wish that to everyone.

H + L Love off the coast of Africa

They kissed the taste of salt carried by the sea on each other's lips and it made them thirsty for more. They played and fooled around like mad people i ...

RETURNING TO THE SEA – SELF UNDERWATER PORTRAITS
Taking a couple for a portrait session underwater, to me, it’s offering them a new sense of adventure, trust and connection. It’s teaching them to touch each other intentionally, as a way to communicate. It’s teaching them to close their eyes and let go. It’s giving them a chance to experience silent interaction, to open up to an inner world of poetry. It’s cutting them from everything, even breathing. Cut them from everything, but each other. It’s making them feel the rush, the adrenaline, the pulse, together. Little things invigorate passion like salt on your skin. Little things free us from all our social restraint like gravitating freely ...
