I love staycations as much as the next girl, so when the stunningly beautiful luxury beach front hotel, Malibu Beach Inn, reached out for photography in exchange for a free stay on a weeknight, it took me about 0.3 seconds to say heck yeah and offer a date.
The marketing manager wanted lifestyle photos of an insider's look at staying at the hotel: the room, the food, the morning beach yoga, the works. Detail shots, wide shots, all with cohesive style. Thankfully, I'm married to a handsome model, so you'll see Dusty's cameo role in some of these shots. Also thankfully, Dusty has turned into quite the photographer (I'm so proud!) so you'll spot me in some shots as well. Adding the human element to the photos gives the images an extra little bit of life and resonance.
A sampling of the photos are below, and you can also see them doing their job over on Malibu Beach Inn's instagram account.
Are you in the hotel industry and want in on some photos like this? Shoot me an email and I'll pack a bag!
I live in Malibu, Calif.,
