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!

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.

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.

Ishaq is flexing his muscles pushing this rock over.

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

Did you figure it out yet about Naeem?

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.

Imara Thomas

Aug 24

Imara was preparing to come to Aruba for vacation when she contacted me and arranged a photo shoot.  Besides being a great photo shoot, this one came with a lesson attached and I’ve decided to share this with you. I usually go into shoots with an idea more or less of what’s each client’s desire, this was not the case here. My creativity was stretched. One does not know their true potential until they like the eaglet be dropped from a height and notice that in uncertainty they are really  able to soar. I’m very happy how this  turned out. And I challenge you today to go out and do something you’re not perfectly comfortable with and see what the results are. I would say this is one of my best sessions and this is not all because of me but the subject is stunning, the location breathtaking and the willingness and determination of the subject is like no other. If you want beautiful images you have to hang out on a limb a little. The effort is well worth it.  Aruba offers a variety of awesome backdrops but at times it will take a little effort to get to them especially if you want great images in fancy clothing or wedding dresses etc. These were taken at the Gold Mine Ruins after Imara have seen the maternity session I’ve done at this very same location. Enjoy.

Blessings,

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.

My current market is not the local market but I’ve been contemplating breaking into the local market just hadn’t sit down and put the details all together as I already have a business concept for the local market but never worked out the details of execution. A few weeks ago I’ve received a call from one of my brides (Not that she’s married to me but I’ve shot her wedding. Hence, my bride.) informing me that she’s pregnant and she wants us to go out and take a few shots. She has an amazing plan to document her progress over the months. I was very happy for her and wished her all the best. This request also gave me a kick in the seat to start off the local market. I’ll now have enough images to have a gallery specifically dedicated to maternity and babies. I already tentatively have another mom to be in line for a shoot so from here you’ll continue to hear more and more about pregnant moms and babies.

I just love my island, Aruba,  I do enjoy studio work but what a contrast it draws out as you go out around the Island and shoot these images. These images were shot at the Gold Mine Ruins and surrounding area and we have plans of visiting a host of areas in the coming months. Enjoy!

Sexy Momma posing in the ruins.

Her eyes closed, smiling, enjoying every moment of her pregnancy.

I call this one “GOD”, it’s just so spiritual. Shining light, thus showing the way but yet covering in this period of pregnancy.

She was a real trooper going up to get these shots.

Only in Aruba!

Ilaina, congratulations and I wish you all the best with this new baby.

I’ve had an appointment with this family to document a piece of their vacation in Paradise that is Aruba.  I’ve met with them at their hotel and we’ ve transitioned to  Eagle Beach  to capture these breathtaking images.

How can one pass up a family portait shoot in paradise, Aruba has some of the best backdrops in the whole world. See it for yourself. Anytime you’re coming to the island feel free to contact me to schedule a family portrait session with us here at Bryan Morris Photography (http://www.bryanmorrisphotography.com/)

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
