Your getaway to paradise at home? Yes please.

That feeling of freedom, sun soaked beach days, and magical sunset strolls.

It’s the feeling you live for, but there's one minor detail. You don't live in paradise.

Thankfully, you've finally landed in the right place...

A place that was made for you, fellow sunset chaser, beach lover, and wanderluster! A place full of breathtaking photo prints of paradise.

Welcome & bienvenidos to The Sunset Shop (SambaToTheSea here on Etsy), a place where you can bring that magical feeling of paradise home with you, wherever your home may be.

So who captures all of these breathtaking photographs of paradise???

¡Hola hola! I'm Kristen + it's nice to meet you! First things first, it definitely was love at first sunset and wipeout.😍 🌅 🌊

I'm the #SunsetChaser at TheSunsetShop.com and @sambatothesea on Etsy and Instagram. And I totally understand how it feels to be caught up in every day life and not be able to be at the beach as much as you'd like, because not too many moons ago I worked in a cubicle on the 24th floor in the concrete jungle known as New York City.

But, my life was forever changed when I made a New Year's Resolution to learn how to surf, which led me to trade my heels for a camera and surfboard in Costa Rica.

So even though you may live miles away from the ocean, you can have the beach in your every day too -- because I created The Sunset Shop full of dreamy Costa Rica art prints for you -- my fellow sunset chaser + beach lover + wanderluster!

If you have any questions about the prints, from sizing to help picking which sunset or beach print you'd like to bring home with you, message me + I’m here to help!

Pura Vida,
Kristen

Welcome to my shop and thank you for browsing my work! I am involved in every step of creating these unique postcards, from anxiously waiting for the magic moment at sunset, clicking the shutter button, editing the photo, creating the postcard, to printing the final product. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me (click "Contact" on the left hand toolbar).

I use a professional printing lab that works to create gorgeous postcards, which are printed on 100-lb., matte recycled card stock. The finish is beautiful, vibrant, and really makes the colors pop.

Please feel free to contact me if you would like to inquire about large orders (discounts available), editing the text phrase, or if you have any questions. Custom orders are welcome!
