Coming to Barbados for your vacation means leaving everything behind and just being. Being with yourself, your partner, your friends or your family. Too often we forget to stop to breathe, stop to enjoy a view, stop to really watch your kids grow. This is what being on vacation means. Why not document your family - just being together. In the end, that’s what your family is all about, isn’t it? ⁣ ⁣ Real Life. Real Families. Documented. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ •⁣ •⁣ •⁣ •⁣ •⁣ •⁣ •⁣ #familyphotography #familyphotography #familyphotographer #modernfamilyphotography #documentaryfamilyphotography #shamoftheperfect #fearlessandframed #thedocumentaryapproach #dfpcommunity #documentyourdays #thedocumentarymovement #barbadosfamilyphotographer #docfamawards #huffingtonpostparents #natgeoyourshot ⁣ at Sandy Lane, Saint James, Barbados


Yah sure you can look at me and smile. Or. We can talk about “do you remember the time when......?” And all laugh altogether - incredulous that someone remembered “that” story. ⁣ ⁣ You choose. ⁣ ⁣ ❤️⁣ ❤️⁣ ❤️⁣ Live Loud.

This moment gets me every time. I don’t know how I’ll handle getting my girls ready for their wedding - hello emotional train wreck over here! When a client isn’t sure if they want getting ready coverage, I show them images like this. Sure you can spend your time on your wedding day taking portraits with your new spouse. But something like this is going to mean so much to you in 30 years. ⁣ ❤️⁣ ❤️⁣ ❤️⁣ Live Loud.

Holding the camera way up high in one hand, and the other around my 7th month pregnant belly, I slowly walked down the pool stairs and into the water.

I don’t think we could have had a more gorgeous setting for their wedding. I mean seriously. It was absolutely stunning. ⁣ ⁣ Live Loud.

I watched in awe as the pen danced across the deckled paper as though the words had been rehearsed time and time again. ⁣ ⁣ The feelings she wrote and would shortly speak to her groom came pouring out along with some tears. ⁣ ⁣ Live Loud.

I realize I’ve been neglecting sharing images of my family clients. Which is not cool because photographing the moments that happen in your everyday life, be it joyful, funny, or painful is why I make photos - it’s why I always have a camera with me. You’ll be seeing a lot more of my documentary family work here. Hope you’ll stick with me as I continue to photograph and share the fascination, delightfulness, humor and honesty in the images of both my incredible wedding clients as well as the families (who are often wedding clients turned family clients!) I document who recognize the wonderful, amazing, beautiful simplicity in their everyday lives. #documentaryfamilyphotography #fearlessandframed #documentaryphotography #modernfamilyphotography #familyphotographer #familyphotography #barbadosfamilyphotography


I’ve just returned from a month vacation in Italy with my family. For one month we ate and ate and ate some more. Had adventures at the beach and in the mountains. It was incredible. I promised my family to be present 100% and I made it to about 98% 😊. I won’t lie, when we got back I had the “return from home holiday blues”. Getting the house ready for some changes happening around here, getting back to emails and business. It was tough. What turned this around, was when I went through that stack of mail (which let’s be honest was mostly bills), I found this gem. A Thank You note from one of my favorite clients. I Can’t tell you how much this meant to me. Post holiday blues went right away. Thank you so much @mrs.amandavalentine for trusting me with your day, and for thinking me special enough to take the time to write your incredible note. This right here makes it all worthwhile. Live Loud. Love Loud. #weddings


I’m more of an open book, he stays behind the scenes. He’s the one who makes sure we’ve eaten, (and well!), the one who locks the doors and windows at night and then wakes up later to make sure it was done. He will help comb out their hair give them dress advice. He’s my rock, our teammate, and always by my side - At home and at work. He’s an all star living legend. #sicily #summer2018 #italy #break at Mazara Lungomare Mazzini


Too long since I’ve just been with my girls. Time is not a thing here. If you can, pull yourselves away, far away, and just be with them. Although I think @adi.emtagedeane is having a better time on her phone than doing nothing with us. :-) #documenteverything #italy2018 #summer #sicily at Baia di Guidaloca


Back in Italy for the summer with my famiglia. I never post about me here but I figure if I have the honor of getting to know so many wonderful people through my job, it’s nice to share a bit about me :-). I’ve worked so so hard this year and it’s been a year of personal ups and downs and professional highs - it’s been a kick ass year all in all, and I know it comes from faith. There also comes a time when you have to stop and look in the mirror and make sure you are taking care of yourself. You have to look at your kids and make sure you haven’t spent all your time on your business and missed them growing up. You have to look at your husband and make sure that the nights when he just wants to spend time with you, aren’t increasing as you shout “I’m coming! Just 5 more minutes!!” and 2 hours later you find him sleeping on the couch. We creatives don’t know how and when to stop because we soooo love what we do. I’ve decided for the month of July, I’m stopping for a bit. And turning my head away from the computer and looking at my family. at Monastero San Daniele


They literally drove off into the sunset, and with the biggest, most gorgeous smile on her face, she looked back. Magical. @kasmirads @pcschmidt #weddings at Mustique


Last week we traveled to the incredibly gorgeous island of Mustique to document the wedding week of these two amazing people. Their families - huge, crazy and completely awesome welcomed us with open arms. They were the true meaning of beautiful people. @kasmirads @pcschmidt - Thank you. Live Loud. Love Loud. #weddings at The Cotton House


The minute she went into her dads arms, she couldn’t hold back her tears. Live Loud. Love Loud. #weddings Wedding Coordinator: @island_bliss_weddings_barbados at Radisson Aquatica Resort Barbados
