Curaçao- La Isla Bonita

Curaçao, located just a few miles of the coast of Venezuela - is a Dutch Caribbean island, part of the Netherlands Antilles.  It also happens to be the birthplace of my father and where my paternal family still reside.  Almost every year since my birth, our family heads down to reconnect with our roots, and bask in the sun and sea.  I never take for granted the beauty of the warm azure blue waters, candy colored streets of downtown Willemstad, and the sincere embraces of all our family.  The arid backdrop of the Curaçao’s natural flora and fauna only intensify the surrounding colors of the architecture and sea.

This is our family's happy place, where we come to escape the Northeast winter, relax and rejuvenate our souls...

First Beach Family Shoot

Pat and Shauna are loving parents to an adorable girl!  During this sunset shoot, the family strolled along First Beach's shoreline and boardwalk, enjoying the salty breeze.

The Sybor Family Middletown shoot

The Sybor's are a fun and vivacious Navy family of five, stationed in Newport on a sanctioned educational sabbatical.   The original plan was to meet out at the beach - but the wind was whipping that day, so we quickly came up a Plan "B."  Photographed near sunset, the beautiful bucolic backdrop made for a perfect summer family session.
