White & Blue Summer Top | A Photoshoot with Dreambox

A 3:30am wakeup call to get to the shoot location just before sunrise- and it was totally worth it.

I recently worked with the team at Dreambox for a gorgeous photoshoot at a hidden (and sort of secret) location.

Our biggest challenge was just that - choosing a location in this summer heat!

But once we noticed this particular spot, and since outdoor lighting is ideal for amazing pictures, we made our way down to Jumeriah Beach in the early hours of the morning- just before the intense heat and humidity kicked in.

I'm not an early morning person, but this was definitely worth waking up for. We arrived there right before sunrise and shot as the sun was coming up. The Golden Hour lighting gave the images a beautiful light and color- this, by far, is the best time to shoot for magical pictures.

Next, choosing the right outfit.

I had about 4 different options laid out, but of course the morning of the shoot I changed my mind and went with this outfit.

This top from Mango is a current favorite. I love the tie-up tassels on the shoulders, the fringe along the hem, the cotton fabric and the design of course!

I couldn't find the link to this top on the Mango website, but you may still be able to find it if you walk into a store.

With the weather getting hotter and hotter in Dubai, I'm trying to fit in as many shoots as possible during the early morning and sunset hours. What are some of the nicer places to shoot in Dubai? Any recommendations?
