Born in a paradise and chasing new ones ever since, Bailey Roberts’ photography has the infectious sense of adventure in each frame. Soaked in blue waters and kissed with warm sunlight, her portraits are an ode to natural beauty, in landscape and human form alike.

Through her stunningly raw images, Roberts presents us with her own intricate utopia, presented through the flickering details; slim teenage legs on the sand, mirrored reflections in the darkening evening ocean, spiky leaves reaching out like open hands.

With her depicted wide-eyed appreciation for the natural allure of the world, it should come as no surprise that Roberts is as delightful as her sunny landscapes, introspective about the recurring themes in her fledging portfolio and happy to wear her influential upbringing on her sleeve. And with the talent she’s infused with, who wouldn’t be?
