Andrea & Anthony Day After Session, Conchas Chinas, Mexico

What is better than photographing a couple on their wedding day? A day after session, of course!

I had a lot of fun reconnecting with Andrea and Anthony a couple of days after their wedding day for some relaxed beach portraits at their hotel, Costa Sur. The view was just amazing and even though it was sunny, it was such a beautiful time to have a session.

There is literally nothing more spectacular than two people in love with such a beautiful beach backdrop.

Baby Chema Bucerias Maternity Photographer, Mexico

I get asked often what I do for a living, and when I was first starting out, I would feel really silly proclaiming that I was a portrait photographer. Or a photographer in general. At the time, I was so immersed in perfecting my craft that I felt like everyone was becoming a photography. It’s like when you’re looking to buy a new car and then you suddenly see the car everywhere.

After 10 years in business, I’ve learned that in order to continue doing what I love, everyone must know that I’m a photographer. This is particularly difficult for me since I’m naturally an introvert and don’t like talking to strangers on a superficial level.

But this means that even my landlady knows that I’m a photographer. And when her son and daughter-in-law were looking to have their maternity photos taken, she thought of me.

You see, sometimes, you might be the only person people know who does what you do. So never shy away from proclaiming your talents, passions, and career choices.

You just never know the wonderful people you may meet. Monse and Chema were so fun to photograph and they came to me with a truly unique idea that I just love how it turned out!

Congratulations you two are going to have a lot of fun with your little baby boy!

Ito Family Vidanta Resort Nuevo Vallarta Family Portrait Photographer

Not only did I have the absolute pleasure of photographing the Honrado family, but the Ito family too! They are actually sisters who were vacationing together here in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico.

I'm so glad that Jo decided to do a portrait session to remember their beach vacation! I had a lot of fun and love that my clients are always the nicest!

There is something wonderful about capturing your family during a beautiful beach vacation. Especially if that beach vacation is in Nuevo Vallarta! The long stretched beach and beautiful grounds at the resort make for a mesmerizing background.  Add in a few splashes in the water and you get real vacation portraits.

Loved spending time with these kiddos exploring the resort and getting splashed on in the water while they had fun in the sun!

Family Session in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico

I love being able to step away from the beach and take portraits of families at the resort where they are staying. It helps to really commemorate their time there and remember their vacation as a family.

In this case, Katy reached out to me and invited me to take these really gorgeous photos of her and her family! I'm so glad we met because she is really sweet and just the nicest! She is also a photographer in the Delaware area so if you are looking for someone to take family portraits - mainly maternity and newborn, she's your girl!

We walked a bit and then took many in front of the fountain at the entrance to the hotel which made a really nice background.

That's the great thing about visiting Nuevo Vallarta, Puerto Vallarta, and the Riviera Nayarit, is that there are so many great places to have your session. 

It was a gloomy day but it made for such great colors and light. Thank you Katy for having me spend such a wonderful time with you and your family! Next time you come visit, it's tacos and margaritas ;).

Toews Family Bucerias Sunset Family Session

I am so happy to photograph such beautiful families who come to Bucerias and Puerto Vallarta and spend a few days in the sun and sand. Nothing like spending time together and getting to witness the most beautiful sunsets on the pacific coast.

Everyone in this family was just sweet and they were such a joy to be around. Thank you to everyone for having me take a little bit of your time on vacation to capture your beautiful family!

And isn't this baby just adorable! Loved her! 

Sunset sessions are laid back and easy. If you're visiting this area let me know and we'll schedule your session so that you can always remember your time on a beautiful Mexican Beach Vacation.

Bergert Sunset Family Session in Destiladeras, Bucerias

Destiladeras is probably one of my favorite beaches in the Riviera Nayarita.  It is so incredibly beautiful and a hidden gem between luscious vegetation on the way to the famous Punta Mita.  A deep shoreline and calm waters make for beautiful sunset portraits, gah! Just beautiful!

I had the pleasure of photographing the Bergert family while they were visiting from Minnesota, where it's currently snowing! 

It was so much fun and I love getting the opportunity to photograph such beautiful people while they are enjoying themselves in one of the most beautiful places in Mexico.

If you're visiting the Puerto Vallarta, Sayulita, Bucerias area, let's get a sunset portrait session done. 

You won't regret it when you look at your large wall portrait of your family on a beautiful beach, slowing down, and enjoying life!

McKay Family Portraits Playa Destiladeras, Nayarit

This family was just the most fun loving, happy, and playful family I have photographed in a long time! Then again, all of the families that hire me to photograph them have lots of fun during the session!  

Visiting Bucerias from Canada, they came to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary, which is no feat, and deserved a very fun photo session! It was very endearing to see the couple so in love, their family having fun, and the all around great vibe they gave.  They light up any room!  

If you're visiting this beautiful area of Bucerias, Sayulita, San Pancho, and Puerto Vallarta, make sure you schedule your family portrait session, because there is nothing like these beautiful beaches and even more beautiful sunsets!

Puerto Vallarta Beautiful Sunset Portrait Photography

Really? These sunsets over here are just magical.  I am in awe of the sunsets here in Puerto Vallarta.  Technically, we're in Bucerias but it's same side and 15 minutes from PV ;).  

I used to live in Southern California and they have nice sunsets, but these top those on a whole different level.  Not sure what it is, but they are stunning.  And photographing people during this beautiful golden light is even better. 

This is the last of these mini portrait sessions.  I'm hoping to do more soon! Lots of things are changing soon for us here (no we're not pregnant or moving, again, lol) but just lots of changes and they are all great changes that God is guiding us towards.  I'll keep that annoyingly vague for now ;).

I have been having so much fun photographing these families during the beautiful sunset hours, and some not so sunset but it just goes to show that you can't take a bad photo of a family having fun splashing at the beach.  Add a cute flowy dress and flower crowns and I just can't get enough of it!
