When three gorgeous best friends (no really…are these three models?) and their equally beautiful families planned to travel together to a tropical paradise, was there really any better time to schedule family portraits? When Christin reached out to me, explaining that this would be their first trip together since they had all had children, I immediately picked up on how special this trip was going to be for them and was instantly excited to meet them to document a piece of their vacation in these best friends getaway in Puerto Aventuras portraits.
Despite a stormy morning, we decided to move forward with our evening shoot, and just on schedule, the storms passed and the sun broke through the clouds.
Christin, her husband and her adorable baby girl, whose pouty little lips I couldn’t get enough of, were so full of warmth. Jordan and her husband, who had the smiliest baby boy in all the world, glowed with light and laughter. Brooke and her husband, parents to a slightly older, super energetic boy and girl, knew just how to make their children giggle and grin by swinging them through the air and sending them to splash in the ocean.
While all three women wore white, a choice I generally steer groups away from, they used accessories to add pops of color to their outfits, giving them just enough interest without going overboard. A dash of turquoise here and a few floral accents there brought what could have been a wash of white beautifully to life. The lightweight, organic look of the fabric, along with the relaxed hairstyles, was also a perfect choice for the beach, giving the images that much sought after boho look.
When the three best friends came together for their own set of portraits, you could see in their radiant smiles how much love they have for each other, and when we brought the husbands in to join the fun, you couldn’t help but want to be apart of this fun-loving, laughter-filled posse. It was such a treat to photograph this unique and special Best Friends Getaway session. Check out a few of my favorite images below!
