Heather initially e-mailed me this past March to inquire about booking a maternity/family photo shoot while in Bermuda for vacation. It’s always a treat for me to get to know my clients a little bit over e-mail before I actually photograph them. Heather noted that she, her husband, Jeff, and son, Rowan, would be flying to Bermuda from Colorado! After a few back-and-forth messages to discuss location and island transportation, she chose Warwick Long Bay and Southlands’ Estate Park.
During the photo shoot, Heather and Jeff told me they had previously lived in Huntsville, Alabama – where mother’s family is from. Our shared connection to the South sparked a great dialogue between all of us! Perhaps one of the more memorable conversations of the day came from young Rowan, who told me his favorite number was five. While in Southlands’ Estate Park, Rowan carefully selected five flowers for his dad to wear in his shirt pocket. Like most young boys, Rowan also liked picking up sticks! With the second baby on the way, Heather and Jeff wanted to capture their vacation as a family of three – soon to be a family of four!
