As a photographer, it’s hard to travel to a beautiful destination and not want to squeeze in some work while there but for this particular vacation; my husband and I were taking our daughter for the first time (she is 6 months old) and I told myself no work for this trip! As the days went by and our trip was coming to an end I was itching to photograph a short session (specifically motherhood or family) so I reached out to Mami (mama in these photos) after seeing that she is also a fellow photographer and has two little ones, to ask if I could photograph her and her kiddos and she agreed! She even offered to photograph my own little family!
Coincidentally, the beach she picked happened to also be our favorite on the island also so we all spent the evening together; playing, goofing around and getting ourselves extra sandy & salty as the sun went down, a special evening for sure.
Mami is such a beautiful & strong single mama; it was an honor to document how free-spirited she and her kids are and the joy they bring to one another.
