Always a fun part but especially with an awesome team, weather and the right light!

We had our yearly Miss Taranaki photo shoot at Ahu Ahu beach this year.
Photographer: Lauren Luttrell
Model: Miss Taranaki 2017 Jenna Bellve
A special thanks goes to Lois Finderup at Turning Point Modeling Agency Taranaki, who is organizing the Miss Taranaki competition every year.


It was a hot and sticky New Zealand summers day where we should have also thought about the sandfly spray!
We were so organized this year to make sure we catch the small window of the best light during the late afternoon.
Luckily we had a popular Taranaki beach to ourselves that day. Trying to use all of the stunning rock formations, drift wood and views towards New Plymouth in our shoot we were constantly on the move. Clothes and papers, towels and surf props were evenly distributed along the beach reminding me at a teenage room. Thank god for Lauren directing the crew and Jenna delivering 110% for the full 4hrs while sandflyes were biting chunks out of her .
Well done team, you are amazing!
