Kao Family Nuevo Vallarta Beach Portraits

Getting to hang out with fun families with cute personalities are my favorite. These little guys were just the most fun kids at this session!

At the end of our session, dad told the boys to thank me for capturing their family memories and it made me smile from ear to ear and then on the way home, it brought tears to my eyes because that is EXACTLY what I aim to do for all families: CAPTURE FAMILY MEMORIES.

People come from all over the world and take the time to get portraits taken on one of Mexico’s most beautiful beaches and it’s a perfect time to really soak in being a family, hanging out together, and getting one of kind portraits taken.

It’s a perfect time to capture your children making sand castles. Wearing their favorite colorful sunglasses when they were three because they are only three once. It’s the perfect time to capture that wave that wet everyone and made your whole family belly laugh!

Those are the moments we all want to remember, looking back at photos of ourselves with our family living our best lives. Even if it means getting wet from head to toe. Or getting to hang on dad because he’s so much fun. Or kissing your brother because you love him so much.

Because kids grow, get older, and forget that when they were three, they got to splash in the water and not worry about a thing.

Don’t let these moments pass you by, get your portraits taken.

Babymoon Jessica & Jon | Puerto Vallarta Maternity Portraits

I have a big spot in my heart for maternity sessions. It’s absolutely miraculous and so incredible how we grow, care for, love, and build an intimate relationship with a person we haven’t even met yet!

It truly is an honor to be able to photograph such a momentous life event for my clients. Can’t wait until baby C is here and these two beautiful people can enjoy the miracle of having a baby!

Anyway, here are the photos, taken on the beach in Conchas Chinas, Puerto Vallarta.

Three families vacation at Banderas Bay, Nayarit

Families that vacation together stay together…

Can we make that a thing? Because let me tell you, every family that I have the honor of photographing is just amazing and when family gets together to vacation all in one spot, it’s even better.

Photographing vacationing families during these once a year, sometimes it’s more of a gap, makes the photos even more special!

Tracey, Bonnie, and Vicki: You three have such amazing families and thank you for trusting me even though it was super hot and really bright at midday!

Big family vacation at Nuevo Vallarta

There are big families, and then there are BIG families! I love all families and big ones seem to be the norm around here!

I’ll never get tired of photographing these families because I feel like for a couple of hours, I’m a part of the whole clan. Seeing, playing, photographing moments that happen right then and there. Never being able to be re-created.

It’s a magical feeling when I can capture a family truly the way they are. Smiling, having fun, and enjoying each other. Families full of love.

And every family is unique which makes each session feel new and fresh! I’ve photographed several families here on this beach in Nuevo Vallarta, at the Grand Mayan resort and it never ceases to surprise me how each session can be so different from the next.

Thank you to all of my wonderful clients, like this family, who trust me with their memories and offer up vacation time to get photos taken! Makes it so special.

Turning 2 on vacation in Puerto Vallarta - Garza Blanca Resort, Puerto Vallarta

I love when people come to Puerto Vallarta to celebrate, relax, and just immerse themselves in the beauty of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico! I love it even more when I get to spend time with amazing people and cute families!

It was a true honor to spend time with this little cutie on her second birthday! We played, jumped, sang, ran, and had so much fun during our session!

Toddlers are so fun because they’re coming into their own and letting them play and have fun while taking their photos best shows their personalities! We can see how adorable this little girl was and she gave the best hugs!
