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.

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.

I thank God continually for the great family that I have. My kids are healthy and well behaved. My wife’s health and mine could not have been better. A little over weight, yes but we’ve started collectively to work on this we’re determined to be fit within the next year or so. You’ll be hearing about this as I will attempt to start a complete other blog documenting my progress. I’m blessed to live on Aruba where people save an entire year to come and visit. I have the best job in the world as a photographer, documenting weddings, engagements, shooting family portraits. It’s been all work and no play for me but I’m working out a plan that will allow me to slow down a little. Over the summer my kids pinned me in a corner (figuratively of course) and demanded that I take their pictures. I’ve obliged, what was there to do. These are my kids and they’re great. I want to say the best in the world but I haven’t traveled the world over yet but I dare if they’re not the best in the world they are pretty close and to me they are already there. Ah forget it! They ARE the best in the world, it’s my blog right?

I’ve placed this one on my fb page as a teaser I really like it and I must say I”m enjoying B/W lately.

Here you have Ishaq and Naeem striking a pose between some rocks.

Did you figure it out yet about Naeem?

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

From the multiple family portrait requests I receive, I had the pleasure of documenting a very grounded, easy going  family here in Aruba while enjoying their vacation at the Aruba Marriott Ocean Club for a week. I took them out to the eagle beach and had a blast with them for about an hour.

Didn’t I say this kid is cool, here he’s with his mom. 

Now, this is one of the new trnds that I’ve decided to get into for this year as mentioned in a earlier post. Here you have a retro, weathered look of a portrait of Abby.  

This is another version of the family portrait at sunset at the Eagle Beach Aruba. 

Kameron the real surfer dude, just hangin’ loose. 

Abby in a cooperative moment. 

This photo will be treasured for years t come. I see this surfacing at her wedding. A real bonding moment. 

Good, times!

Mom and Dad Conner on Eagle Beach!

Chantal & Frantz

May 22

Chantal & Frantz celebrates life. Why life? Life has dealt them so much good that they have no other choice but to celebrate. They’ve purposed in their minds not to be distracted by all the negativity going on worldwide. That is already a reason to celebrate, besides they are also celebrating a combined weightloss of 110 pounds and if you think that they’re done celebrating well guess what? You’re wrong, for they are also celebrating their 3rd wedding anniversary.

Congratulations on all your accomplishments, you are  an inspiration and I’ve had a great time with you.

Since the last weeks’s sunset was so much loved and it makes many think of the island. I’ll post another sunset shot.

This was taken from my back yard.

I must also add that this entire week we’ve been having superb sunsets. I’ll try and go out and play later today. I have an idea going around my head for some time already.

Enjoy your Sunday.

On September 29, 2007

A perfect Saturday evening on the pristine powder white beaches of Aruba, Melanie Harris and Joel Cooper promised to remain at each others side until death do them part at the Eagle Beach. It was a very casual setting. They were accompanied by their close relatives and loved ones. Rev Gibson was the officiant. They were all smiles the entire evening with each other. See for yourself in the images. Melanie and Joel when the not so nice seasons approach you, just holds hands look in each others eyes and smile just as you’ve smilled on your weding day. Know that those dark seasons are nothing but seasons. We all go through them from time to time. Aruba Weddings were the wedding planners for this evening, who did a great job in setting this up.
