With roughly sixty percent of all of St. John designated as national park. We have some of the most pristine picturesque beaches on earth. Although I firmly believe that wherever you are is the best place for a family portrait to be created, the Virgin Islands does have a way of making that portrait look just a little bit happier. With over fifty beaches just on St. John there is never a shortage of locations. My favorite morning beach (time of day that the sun lights up the beach water pretty tropical blue) on St. John is Hawksnest Beach. I have been told that the name came from the nesting of the hawksbill sea turtle but, I can honestly say, that I have never seen one nest there. What I have seen and do know is that it is a wonderful place for family photography.
Whether a large or small family, it is always special when the parents want images of themselves without the kids. I love these family photography sessions. Just pure developed love. The kind that happens after years of nurturing one another. The true sweet kind where all distractions are gone and what you have left is pure and refined. It’s these images that happen naturally and unprompted. I love capturing them. You can see and feel it. Like an unusually beautiful day, you know it special and thus you take notice….I noticed. Thank you for allowing us to photograph your beautiful family and also you.LL
