Windy Turks and Caicos family portrait

One of the things I enjoy about being on Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos islands is being able to get from one end of the island to the other in the time it takes most people to get from the suburbs to the motorway. This was particularly beneficial for my Island Escape shoot with the Huh family. It turned out to be a blustery old day we had penciled in for our shoot and when I arrived to pick up Anjean, Sang, Andrew and Ashley, it was evident that some effort had gone into preparing for the shoot. Everyone was very well turned out in appropriate clothing which complimented the whole family. The main focus of the shoot was going to be Ashley, as it was arranged to be predominantly her ‘senior portrait’ session. Ashley had therefore gone through a little more effort with hair and makeup and the bending of the palm trees in the wind at the Gansevoort was not a good indication. We decided however to see what we could get in the first hour, and possibly reschedule. Our litmus test was at Sailing Paradise in Blue Bay Hills. Thankfully Ashley is blessed with lovely thick, strait hair, and we could actually use the wind to get some dramatic movement for a few shots before being sorted out by simply running her hands through her hair. The north side of the island was not ideal though for an extended portrait session, so we ventured to the sheltered south side to Sapodilla Bay Beach. The contrast was palpable. It was as if a great calm had descended. Ashley had also brought a couple outfit changes, so it was therefore a no brainer to continue the shoot in the relative tranquility of the bay and enjoy another wonderful sunset at the beach.
