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.

Mr & Mrs Miller tied the knot 20 years ago and decided to come to Aruba for the first time with their two beautiful daughters Amanda and Alyssa to celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary. I love meeting people who’s been here for the first time and question them on the island. One of my first questions to them was how they find the island. and the response was, It’s so much better than many of the other island’s they’ve visited. On behalf of the entire island of Aruba and it’s inhabitants I would like to thank you for choosing Aruba as your celebration destination. Many more wedding anniversaries. Know that now you’ve officially found friends on this side of the world.

Of course they wanted to be documented in Paradise so I took them out on the Palm Beach area and partly around the Fisherman’s Huts on Aruba for some family portraits.

The entire Family Miller just casually posing for a portrait on Palm Beach, Aruba.

Alyssa and Amanda showing some sisterly love.

It’s been 20 years but I still love you like it’s day one!

Daddy’s girl, all proud of how you’ve grown.

Mommy’s Baby is always there under her wings.

Amanda’s showing that she has all elements in place to be a model.

Alyssa’s won’t stay behind in the world of fashion either, what a better team than 2 sisters.

This should give Dina, butterflies all over again. Eric is a good thing I don’t follow my clients. You look all studly here.

Here’s to another 20 years! This was a shot specifically requested by the kids.

On to many more 20 years as one happy family.

Blessings,

Bryan Morris

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.

It’s nice to know that you’re pregnant and you have such a great support group looking forward to baby DA to pinch, hold, kiss and cuddle. I know for a fact that he will not lack any love or attention. His support group is so big that they even has to be featured in his growth process.

This is a high fashion pregnant mommy to be.

Huge part of the support group and there is still more to follow that were not featured due to the request for privacy.

Successful supportive sisters.

Another part of the support team, the proud uncle and his wife.

That’s a stylish preggy!

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.

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.

Blessings,

Bryan Morris

The previous series of images I made of Shayenne for my flash assignment was outdoors, this was taken indoors as I had to get a reflecting background so this is what I came up with. Hope you enjoy it.

As previously mentioned I’m probing into light for 2010. I’m experimenting more and more with OCF (Off Camera Flash) Here are a few images of an assignment I had to submit.

I’m not quite there yet but it’s a journey that I’m enjoying very much.
