I’ve had the immeasurable pleasure to finally meet and document a family that I’ve been in contact with for some time already through the World Wide Web.
Jessica contacted me in hopes that I do Family Portraits as they’re a big family and they’ve never taken a family portrait as the family is so ample that coordinating such has its complications and with everyone on island it can be offered to mom as a late Mother’s Day gift.
Upon getting to the Marriot Aruba Surf Club they were heading to the lobby to meet me, so we got to our arranged meeting spot simultaneously. I’ve recognized them instantaneously and introduced myself.
There were a total of eight people. A mom and a dad and their kids and one, self proclaimed adoptee. After talking for a while I’ve quickly noticed that this was about to be easy. A dream family, beautiful inside and out. Picture the TV family Cosby from the Bill Cosby show, only this time in real life. I couldn’t rave enough to my wife upon getting home. Having that many children you would believe that would get a bit chaotic but all was well in line and the parents did not once had to correct any of the six that were present. Mr. & Mrs. Boyd, I salute you on a job well done raising your kids to become respectable members of society.
During our conversation, I asked what they really wanted and if they’ve had any preferred spot around the premises that they wanted to shoot at and they’ve decided to leave it into my well capable hands. So we started walking with no plan in mind as I don’t like to scope out spots I prefer the areas to jump out at me and start to inspire me. I avoid repeating my areas and my poses. I want to do my clients justice by creating something totally unique for them, so enjoy!
Mr and Mrs Boyd.
This was our first family portrait and I must say that I love this one. I see this blown up big in Canvas in the family room.
They really wanted family portraits so we shot mostly that and here is another option. I really like the relaxed feel of this one.
What is a family portrit without the sunset in Aruba, it just does not work. It goes hand in hand.
This is all the kids along with the self proclaimed adoptee, Brooke second from the left.
Sharing some sisterly love, Jamie and Maggie.
Angie and her little brother Jeremy.
The queen bee with all her little helper bees.
Theguys are really outweighed in this home so should I say, Girls Rule!
Jessica, just lounging on the Palm Beach in Aruba.
I loved this portrait so much that I’ve attempted a different (current) edit to it to see how it would look and I love the final outcome.
I know that we’ve created friends for life as Mrs Boyd let me in on a secret that this will become their main vacation spot from now on and yes we welcome you Boyd family and thank you for visiting. Contact me whenever you’re back at least for a virgin colada around the pool or even dinner with my family.
