The Stunning Venetian on Grace Bay
Fun Family Portraits with the Francis Family
The Francis family isn’t like every other family out there, in that they decided to celebrate their thanksgiving in paradise in the Turks & Caicos islands! This is their 10 year in a row visiting the islands and they are very familiar with just why Grace Bay has been voted the number one beach in the world and how that status lends it to being one of the best photography destinations worldwide. The girls took a bit longer to get ready per usual and I had a chance to become a little more acquainted with the man of the household, Jim. I soon learned that everyone was from very near to my hometown of Annapolis, Maryland and that we all had a great deal in common. It’s a small world and an even smaller island- once everyone joined, we proceeded to make a portfolio of fun and beautiful portraits throughout the property.
The Venetian has a lot of gorgeous columns and European-inspired architecture that made for fantastic backdrops right from the beginning of the session. Diane and Jim’s daughters were full of energy and great photo subjects, needing very little direction from me at all! We were greeted at the beach by a hallmark Grace Bay sunset. The dramatic clouds were lit very softly in contrast to the bright, blue glowing water. It was an amazing scene to work with and everyone’s outfits matched seamlessly. At the end of the session we let loose a little bit and did some more off-the-cuff groups and poses, which the kids especially enjoyed. I look forward to working with everyone again soon, as I’m sure they will be back in no time!
