Portrait: The Gruska Family - Tucker's Point, Bermuda

I had a wonderful time working with the Gruska Family at Rosewood Tucker’s Point! This resort is a wonderful place for a photo shoot and is undoubtedly a photographer’s dream!  The family traveled down to the tiny island of Bermuda from New Jersey for a little “R and R” with their daughter.  We explored the ins and outs of Tucker's: the library, the unique architecture of the resort, the croquet lawn, the spa pool, although their goal for the photo shoot was to make sure their daughter enjoyed the beach! Their daughter had such a fun time at the beach that she passed right out from pure excitement!

Portrait: The Flanigans - Tidal Basin, Washington DC

It was a “picture-perfect day” with the Cherry Blossoms in bloom at the Tidal Basin in Washington D.C. when I took family portraits of Amanda, Shane, and Avery!  It was amazing to watch little Avery experience the pink Cherry Blossoms for her first time.  A fun fact about these beautiful trees: they were a gift to the United States from the mayor of Tokyo in 1912 as a symbol of friendship between the two countries.  As we explored the Tidal Basin with the flower petals floating through the breeze, all three of us enjoyed the peaceful sentiment behind this 105-year-old gift.
