Grace Bay Club family portrait

July and August were busy months for us photographing family portraits here in the Turks and Caicos Islands. The Obasanjo family was one of the many family photo shoots we did at the beautiful Grace Bay Club resort.
On August 18th, one hour before sunset, I met with the Obasanjos in the Grace Bay Club lobby and started the session with some photos in the colorful gardens before moving on to one of the most stunning beaches in the world, Grace Bay. We are very fortunate to have this amazing background of white sandy beaches and blues skies for our family portraits and weddings. It provides the perfect backdrop for the memory of a lifetime.
During the family portrait we had time to do a few formal shots as well as lots of fun and more natural photos of the kids running and playing with their parents. Here are a few images from their session at Grace Bay Club…..

A Water Escape family photo shoot

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to do a Water Escape family photo shoot. This is one of my favorite shoots to do as we get to visit some other islands than Provo and snorkel some of the best coral reefs.

On March 27th we picked up the Braden family at Grace Bay Club and then we got into our private bot charter from Caicos Dream Tours.  After a ten minute boat ride we did a quick stop to find some conch for lunch.

After getting some conch and doing some snorkeling around the waters outside the barrier reef we went to Fort George Cay for some island exploration. This is a great place for collecting shells and swimming around it’s very shallow waters. Just before heading back to Provo we did one final stop to another reef to do some  more snorkeling.

Here are a few images from their photo shoot….

Tara and Nick bring the kids to the beach.

Villa del Mar is a great base for family vacations in Turks and Caicos. It has great rooms, a lovely pool and is a short walk to the Grace Bay Beach. Tara and Nick and their two young children clearly had been having a great time and it was a pleasure to carve a little time out of the vacation for some family pictures. I really believe that  it’s a big advantage  when photographing kids to be a parent yourself. You know the tricks, the looks, the turn of phrase that helps get them into having fun and relaxing. With Kelan and Kali, it was just great fun – we ran, we jumped, we chased…what a great time on the beach..Read More »Tara and Nick bring the kids to the beach.

Even grown up kids have fun at Grace Bay Club.

With the family moving on its was a great opportunity to capture them all together in Turks and Caicos. the Grace Bay Club as always was a beautiful backdrop. it turns out they live only a few miles from my relatives in VA  -literally around the corner..what a small world.. Just a fun family time..Read More »Even grown up kids have fun at Grace Bay Club.
