Beach Portraits with Allison Dunbar

at the Belmond Maroma

“Mexico is one of my very favorite places – I feel wild and free when I am there” – Allison Dunbar

Del Sol Photography has a badass ally: The amazing Allison Dunbar. Allison is a super talented human and a reflection of what we consider the essence of Del Sol. She’s our Sun Goddess!

What makes Allison even more special is that not only is she a total smoke show, she also manages somehow to be simultaneously super sexy and down to earth – no mean feat!

Some of the words Allison uses to describe herself are: Silly, irreverent, mercurial, outrageous, brave, comfortable in my own skin, independent, goofy, real, vulnerable, clown, badass woman, feline, unique, kind and jackass!

Sol already had the pleasure of photographing Allison on a previous trip to the Viceroy Rivera Maya and we were delighted to meet up again, this time at the Belmond Maroma Resort and Spa.

“While I was at the Belmond Maroma, I felt the old me coming back. I knew I was strong and I would come back in full force – and I did. So I guess I always feel like a goddess when I am there.” – Allison

“The first time I came to Mexico, in 2004, I needed to escape. I went down to the Belmond Maroma for a month! I had the time of my life! That beautiful beach and jungle setting – it brought me back to life!

As an actress, model and burlesque dancer, Allison Dunbar, is a shining example of an independent and kind woman who is happy and comfortable in her own skin. She also has a wicked and sense of humor and she’s her proud of being goofy and enjoying life.

“Confidence is something you really earn with years as a woman. It’s a spectacular thing to know you are gaining wisdom, and compassion. That will make everyone more beautiful I think.” – Allison
