Capturing Mrs New Jersey’s Family portrait in Turks & Caicos

When Eleni first contacted me, she mentioned being a USA stylist looking for a family photo shoot at a unique and private beach area. Little did I know that I was going to capture Mrs New Jersey International’s Family portrait in Turks & Caicos!

Besides being a fabulous woman, Eleni is a motivational speaker, an active volunteer, a wonderful wife and a dedicated mother of three incredibly beautiful children. For over 10 years, she has devoted all her passion and service to advocating for Alzheimer’s Awareness and funding. She will continue her fight until we find a cure.

Family Photos at The Somerset Grace Bay

Two years after their first family photo shoot in the Turks & Caicos, this elegant family is back on island for more family photos at The Somerset Grace Bay. The twins are now 11 and they are more beautiful then ever: a new hair cut, a few extra inches, the same great energy and connection.

It’s spring time and the bougainvilleas at The Somerset are in full bloom: magenta, orange, white over a carpet of green leaves. A colorful background for a great family portrait, followed by the always amazing blues of Grace Bay beach.

Each one has an unique story to tell, an experience to share, a fascinating life where I’m kindly invited to enter for a few hours, a day or years.

Cake Smash Turks & Caicos

Cake Smash Turks & Caicos: a messy, adorable, fun-filled, exciting way to capture an early years birthday.

Ishan is turning 1 this month: to celebrate this special day, mom and dad planned a beautiful family portrait on the beach followed by an hilarious cake smash around the pool of Oasis at Grace Bay. After a few seconds of hesitation, Ishan tested the delicious blue cream, loved the sugar, the fluffy feel, the cheers and claps of the parents and friends. In not time there was cake all over the adorable baby: the experience made his day, and brought laughers and tenderness among all the adults invited to share the moment.

The beautiful and delicious cake has been freshly made just a couple of hours before the photo shoot by Caicos Bakery .

The family left the freezing city of Calgary to enjoy a relaxing and sunny vacation at Coconut Beach Villa, in Providenciales.

Groom + Groom – Same Sex Wedding, Long Bay, Turks & Caicos

I have been fortunate to photograph a few same-sex weddings over the years. Although gay weddings are not legally recognized in the Turks and Caicos yet, several same-sex couples have come to the islands and simply married one another in their own terms, celebrating in their own way. Anytime real love manifests itself in two people, I’m honored to be the one chosen to show the world what that looks like.

Jeff and Don celebrated their 20-year anniversary of commitment to each other by getting married in long Bay, Turks and Caicos, on Valentine’s Day. Their best friend gladly accepted to be the officiant and her fiancé their witness. What a wonderful day!

“Beautiful Together”: a project to feed and shelter Aleppo orphans

This post is different from the others: it does not speak about a wedding nor a family, it does not feature my work, nor the Turks & Caicos Islands. It shares a message of compassion and love, but also violence and heartbreak.

Beautiful Together, by the amazing portrait photographer Tamara Lackey and her husband Steve, work to improve the life of children. The project to fee and shelter Aleppo Orphans touched my heart and want to share it with you.
