Summer Flare Photoshoot with photographer Carley Slater!!
“When I was thinking up this shoot, I knew I wanted sunshine, water and all things summer. When I think of the Pura Vida brand….the first thing that comes to my mind is ‘living free’. No restrictions and anything goes. Anyone can wear the brand in any environment. I just really wanted to capture that free spirit style that I love and try to show some different setups that might describe that. Living in the midwest…we don’t have the ocean, but we get the benefit of many lakes and country. So I wanted to portray that in the shoot as much as I could. Gorgeous water with trees and fields. The model I chose is actually my younger sister. The reason I chose her is because she is the market for Pura Vida. She is beautiful and real. I captured her as she is and that’s what I wanted. A real girl wearing a product that she really loves and uses. She even snapped a few of me at the end too! We had so much fun!” – Carley
