Atlantis Family Photographer | Boys are fun!

Two young boys can make a photo session really busy but it can also make it a lot of fun! Playing on the beach with this family was a great way to spend an evening. Everyone ran and played and laughed in the sand and even got a little wet!

Planning the session to be close to sunset was really helpful. We had beautiful, soft evening light to work with.

One and Only Ocean Club, Paradise Island | Wedding at the Cloisters

It's amazing to me how quickly you can become friends with someone and feel like you have know them forever. From the moment I meant this couple at the cruise ship I knew it was going to be a good day. Their personalities were fun and real and their love for each other was beautiful and evident.

I took them to the Cloisters to do portraits and we had planned to continue to the beach for their short wedding ceremony. Upon arriving and seeing how beautiful the Cloisters are they decided it was the perfect location to say their vows. Being from Colorado they have the option to do a self solemnization ceremony which made everything a lot simpler!

I hope I will always remember what it felt like to be the sole witness to their wedding ceremony. Their heartfelt vows with infectious laughter mixed in was epic. I was tearing up behind the camera as I documented everything.  Thank you for letting me play a little part in such great event! I am definitely looking you guys up next time I'm in Colorado!

Paradise Island, Bahamas | Rainy Day Honeymoon Portraits

Sometimes a rainy day doesn't ruin everything. Since this young bride is also a photographer we planned this shoot together carefully. Wanting to take advantage of some gorgeous, early morning Bahamian sunshine we all woke up early only to find a windy, rainy day. We were pretty disappointed. After a couple of hours of waiting the wind died down some and the rain stopped... we decided it was our perfect opportunity and I am delighted with the results.

Seriously, photographing two people in love is so easy! This session was pure enjoyment from beginning to end. I love my job!

Nassau, Bahamas Children Photographer | One year old portraits

Taking pictures of this little man was the highlight of my week. Seriously. There are few things more fun to me than crawling all over the floor and playing with a child with the goal of capturing their personality with my camera.

We were also able to make a playdate out of this portrait shoot. My son, Cody, is 3 months older and they've been friends from the time they were little babies.

I love his dark hair and dark eyes. Such a handsome little man. Quite the contrast to my blue-eyed, blonde baby. These boys go way back. These next photos were taken almost exactly a year ago.

And look at them now!

I am looking forward to watching these boys grow up together.

Paradise Island, Bahamas | The One and Only Ocean Club | Family Portraits

This past Monday didn't quite start out the way I had thought it was going to. I was just deciding what I was going to accomplish when I got a phone call. Donna and her sister and niece were staying at the One and Only Ocean Club on Paradise Island  and were leaving the next day. They really wanted to get some portraits done before they headed back to the US and were delighted to find out that I didn’t have anything scheduled for the day.

As you can see The One and Only Ocean Club has a beautiful setting. The palm trees, green grass and sparkling blue water are a captivating site. It was a perfect location to capture portraits.

When I first arrived I was assured that the little girl would be the easiest one to photograph and I quickly saw what they meant. She was irresistible. Her smile and laugh had me clicking the shutter almost faster than my camera could keep up.

Donna is home now but she just called me yesterday to say that she just received her photos she ordered through her online photo album. She was thrilled with how how quickly her photo order arrived and the quality and sharpness of the prints.
