The Golden Isles of Georgia are a Southern jewel full of low country romance. Consisting of St. Simons Island, Little St. Simons Island, Sea Island, and Jekyll Island the Golden Isles are located just minutes from Brunswick and capture the epitome of Antebellum charm. If you are looking to avoid over populated tourist destinations and instead take in nature at it’s purest, unique shopping, traditional Southern fare, and an excuse to let it all go, then you will adore the Golden Isles as much as I do. It was for this reason I was more than excited when I was called in to work as a model for the Golden Isles Visitors Bureau along with my daughter. Imagine my surprise when they announced I had made the cover of the visitors guide.

Photographer Ryan Hayslip absolutely nailed capturing the romance and purity of the Isles. I had an incredible time working with the entire crew and the other talented models on set for two days. I can’t wait to see more of the images to come.

You can’t see much of it here but I loved the upscale, yet relaxed styling they had the models in. Here is some inspiration from the looks the stylist pulled. (If you can’t see in email go to the blog to view style board.) 

I’ll be posting more images as they emerge. Make sure to get your own Golden Isles Visitors Guide and discover the magic of one of my favorite getaways by visiting their website here.

Until then…

Enjoy the Journey!
