My boyfriend’s family came down to St Maarten for the holidays… Jesse and I had such an awesome visit! It was so nice to see everyone for more than a few days, and I got a chance to get to know his parents a bit better, who stayed for a week longer than his sisters. Jesse’s mom had been wanting to do a family shoot for awhile, and with the family living all over North and South America, it is rather difficult to get the 5 of them together, and myself to shoot it. I had done a session with Renee when she came to visit me last February, and was really excited to shoot her and his other sister, Liza, together. They photograph beautifully, and at 6′ tall, I can’t seem to take a bad picture! I had been dying to do a session at La Belle Creole, the abandoned resort on the french side, for awhile now. It is so lush and tropical, I can’t wait to shoot there again! There are hundreds of locations throughout the huge resort for photos, and the lighting is just fantastic there.
