Being the wedding and portrait photographer that I am I don’t fancy conducting sessions at the same location over and over. Aruba portrays an abundance of options in locations for photography hence my attempt at constantly exploring locations. This session was in the Wilhelmina Park in downtown Oranjestad, close to Aruba Renaissance Ocean Suites.

This is my cousin’s daughter that I agreed to photograph. At first it seemed like it would’ve of been a treacherous task but once we got into it she cooperated nicely.

This is the mom striking a pose during the session as well.

Mother and daughter expressing some love always makes for a beautiful portrait especially with one of the many backdrops that are available here on the beautiful island of Aruba.

Nothing is better than a little finger after a long photo session!

The visitors who come to the island of Aruba knows that Aruba is a picture paradise. As you step outside you step into picture greatness.

I was requested by Family Moseley to document them in Paradise. I accepted the offer and we’ve had fun with this photo session. I took them out on the Palm Beach pass the Marriott Resort and Casino close to The Fisherman’s Hut on the beach to create beautiful family portraits.

My job was easy. It’s very difficult to mess up with a beautiful family. See the results of the session for yourself.

When I say Aruba is a Paradise all in itself and that we don’t need a studio for portraits, this is proof of my statement. I was recently requested by my photographer friend Christina Fazari to take a few shots of her and her boyfriend. We went out and we’ve had a day of fun. I have so many great shots that I’m considering creating a slideshow to portray all. Here are just a few of these images.

It’s been quite some time that I’ve come to document the pregnancy of Ilaina and this is the last session that she requested to be in black and white and I’ve chosen to make her wish come through but with a twist. I’ve treated the images with a variety of B&W treatments instead of just one. I’ve just had to mix it up ala Bryan Morris Photography. You know it,  Variety is the spice of life!

Me, yours truly, Bryan Morris is not only Aruba’s premier wedding photographer. Maternity photography is another area that I’m busy in and will get even busier come 2011.

This session was shot in a studio setting as the other two were done on location. I love the results of this one and I know that Ilaina will love it too as it’s totally different and totally natural. I couldn’t wait for DA (This is my name to him) to pop himself out of the “oven” to shoot him as well. That would be fun even though he’s almost 5 months and I still didn’t get a shot at him but that is due to me being out for some time and busy on other projects.

Daniel Alejandro was born on December 28, one bouncing baby boy. He couldn’t be surrounded by more love.

Stay tuned for more maternity photography as I tend to get really busy in this area in the near future.

Blessings,

I was contacted to shoot Senior Portraits of Shannon while she visits the island of Aruba with her family for the first time. In an effort to spread my wings and transform this family into Aruba lovers and have them visit our island year after year, I’ve decided to take on this challenge to shoot Shannon’s Senior Portraits in Aruba eventhough I’m Aruba’s Premier  Wedding Photographer. The results I personally believe were exceptional as Shannon is a natural model. She never modeled before but after the shoot I did tell her that she should take up modeling as it’s a natural talent that she has, all she needs to do is develop it and who knows we will see her on the international catwalk within a few years.

The shoot was done for the most part with off camera lighting ala Strobist and I did not have my regular assistant but I must say that Mark, Shannon’s dad did a great job assisting me as my lighting guy. He was my voice activated lightstand and lighting operator. Mark, once again, thank you and you’ve done a great job. We shot at various locations of Aruba. Eagle Beach, Arashi Beach and Downtown Oranjestad in Aruba were a few of the locations that were used for this Senior Portrait Photoshoot.

Look at that smile and her crystal blue eyes, a natural model indeed.

Shannon is practicing walking the catwalk on the beaches of Aruba.

Enjoying Aruba’s nature.

Here you have Shannon strutting her stuff. Showing that she’s ready for the great world of modeling.

Here is a different look of Shannon. This is her with some attitude. She did not liked this one when she saw it in the the camera’s screen. She finds that she looks upset but that is just a different look and I say it’s more attitude than upset.

Loved the hat as a prop in this shoot, it really brought some flavor to the shoot.

Look at that smile and look at the eyes. She was surely enjoying herself in downtown Oranjestad as a model.

Why are you staring, are you not going to join me?

Just lounging downtown Oranjestad.

Aruba’s Sunset + a great model = Awesomeness

Some of you might remember this location that I used in this shoot for a trash the dress session with Shayenne.

Welcome Back!

Mar 26

I have to say “Welcome Back” to myself as I’ve been absent for some time on the blog but I’ve been shooting a little, not with the regular frequency as I’ve trying to decide on some very important crossroads in my personal and business life. I’ve however decided that the show will go on and I will be even more active than before introducing some new services for the island. So stay tuned for all the great things going on. Keep coming back often as I have a great deal of images to display.

Here you will be revealed to spur of the moment thoughts, announcements, quotes and much more. I’ll be found at #hotphotography

Sarah and George

Nov 12

Sarah and George are active divers and they were celebrating their 4th wedding anniversary so they decided to stop by the One Happy Island for a few days to start off their celebration then flew over to the Diver’s Paradise for 9 days to dive all day long. Upon contacting me I’ve asked Sarah what she wanted as a backdrop but that was left totally up to me so I decided to go at an area where we have the best of both worlds.

Sarah and George were a blast. I encouraged George to be just a little naughty (which wasn’t too hard for him to do) to start the sparks flowing and that really reflects in their images.

George just can’t keep his hands off Sarah and I don’t give him wrong, she’s a beautiful lady in and out and she’s his wife.

Gotta get one image under the coconut tree. No coconut tree, no Caribbean, right.

I has been quite a few months ago that Mr Daly and I was back and forth by email trying to set this family portrait session up.  After we’ve had it set up, I was just waiting for the day to show up at our agreed spot in order to head off to a spot and go through the session. Mr Daly entrusted me with the choice of location and as I don’t have a lack of locations here on the island it was easy for me to decide to use a location that I’ve scouted out a few days prior. I prefer not to shoot at the same location over and over and we have a great variety of locations here on the island so I constantly look out for unused locations as I’m out and about. No two photoshoots are supposed to be alike. There might be one or two staple shots but not more than that, I constantly strive to have a different look on every shoot.

So upon meeting the Daly family at their resort one early morning we’ve went out to the Arashi Beach area. Right away I’ve realized that they were an easy going family and the kids were good sports. Rushing to meet Family Daly, I’ve had 2 bloopers. Blooper#1 , I’ve placed everything in the car and thought that my wife put one box with my flashes in it in the car which was not so Mr Daly drove me home to get the flash and then upon getting to Arashi I’ve realized that I left over 40 GB of Flash Cards at my desk so again I had to go home and get them. Thankfully I live pretty close in the area. Mr Daly is so accommodating that he gave me his car to go and get my cards while they explore the Arashi Beach, that’s just how cool he is. Thanks again Mr Daly.

I must say on behalf of myself and my team mate Shayenne we’ve had a blast. I really didn’t feel like stopping although we were bound to a certain time limit but I just love my job and once I get into it I use my subjects merciless. I won’t stop until they have enough of me. Thankfully they allow me to abuse of the situation as it benefits them all the more. They’ll have a greater variety of shots to choose from.

Here you have the entire Family Daly.

Nicole and Sean jsut being casual under a tree while I experiment my strobist technique.

Now this Jen being all cool in Aruba.

The family portrait was the emphasis of the day so I’ve had different takes on it but not one of the regular same old casual way.

Here you have Sean and Jen getting it down in Aruba’s wild life.

Now, to be honest this is my most favorite shot of this shoot. The reason for this I want to believe is the lens used here.

This is a staple of mine, I do it from time to time.

Here you have Jen and Nicole, big sister little sister together.

Another twist on the family portrait.

As we started I was warned by the family but it was  Sean who emphasized that he loves to make goofy faces so we made a deal that if he not make goofy faces during the shoot I will give him a chance to make a goofy face, which I did. It was not that all goofy either to be honest I really liked it.

Here’s another family portait taken at the tree at Arashi Beach.

Bryan Morris

Family Bertus

Aug 17

Mr. Bertus did me a favor earlier this year and brought me some light modifiers and after getting them here safely I promised that I would’ve returned that favor and document his family. My schedule was a bit booked so I didn’t fulfill my promise until recently. It was a real pleasure to document Family Bertus. I’ve chosen to go to a section of the island that I haven’t shot at myself before, just in hopes of getting a different perspective of the island.

Zayenne giving the world a hug!

Ciomay, striking a pose.

Did it occur to you that I enjoy flare?

Mr and Mrs Bertus at their finest.

Zayenne and Ciomay just sitting pretty.

Love is in the air. As I see this my mind goes to the song from Paul John Young.

A different edit to my usual. I like it what do you think?

From mom to dad back to mom again.

Birds of a feather flock together. That’s what they say, right!

Just had to get some sunset action.
