I shot Ryann's senior photos this summer and I was so excited to do a shoot with her sisters and see her again! These ladies did such a great job not looking like they were freezing cold... because it was :)

salida family portraits
Two teenage boys and a baby... and I'm glad to say that everything went quite smoothly :) I just loved watching Sophie's brothers interact with her and keep her entertained. Plus, something tells me that Mom and Dad are going to have lots of ladies hanging around in years to come - they have some seriously handsome and charming young men :)Phew! So much blog posting to catch up on....
This one is one of my favorites from the shoot because it was a perfect, totally unplanned moment :
I like the intensity & authenticity of serious shots.
I love Elias' eyes. They're so huge and so dark and he was one of the happiest, easiest babies I've shot in a long time. He's a little male model already (just check out the second shot :) Dad wasn't sure about that little striped hat, but I think it was adorable. Thanks, Lindsay and Alex! You have a very sweet little boy :)
Haven and Matt are dear family friends, and the reason we were in St. Croix in the first place! Forget "family friends" - they count as family. Their daughter Evie is one of the cutest, sweetest, most hilarious, most gorgeous children I've ever met. I should also insert, proudly, that Evie loves my website. Every night, she'd crawl into my lap, look at my laptop, and announce, "I want to see pictures of grumpy babies. I want to see pictures of girls in white dresses." Then she'd point out her favorites. I'm smitten :)We had such a great time doing their family shoot at the beach where Columbus supposedly landed. Once again, amazing light, amazing water, amazing smiles. When they got splashed by an unexpected wave, this shoot sort of turned into a "trash the family" extreme portrait session. Yay! Extreme portraiture.. hmm. Maybe I'll start a trend. They ended up dancing, falling, playing, swimming, and I think Evie was doing some sort of two-year-old instinctual naked yoga (the last one is one of many favorites from this shoot). What cool wonderful people :) Haven, Matt, & Evie - thank you so much for everything -all the rum, all the improvisational cooking experiments, all the late-night talks, and for letting me go a little nuts with your bug zapper that one night :)
My shoot with the Morain Family in St. Croix was definitely one of the more fun family shoots I've done. They had some great ideas, so we started out at the St. George Botanical Gardens, where there are plantation ruins, total lush gorgeousness, and unheard-of flora everywhere. I'll admit, I never heard of a sausage tree before my visit to the botanical gardens. Now I know. Then we headed to Carambola Beach Resort for a lifestyle session, playing on the beach, having drinks, and hanging out in hammocks until sunset. The very last shot - I promise - was unposed. I like to think she's really that happy about living :) Morains- thanks for a wonderful session, for showing us all around the island, and for being so flipping photogenic and lovely people.
