Christmas Photo Session: Mendy and Luke
The end of the year is a busy time for many photographers…especially here in Puerto Rico! There is always an event, and holiday photo shoots are in demand, which is why I usually offer some kind of special. When you are looking for just one perfect image for a holiday card, a half hour is usually enough time — as long as the weather is good and you are shooting outdoors or on the beach!
This (adorable) Christmas photo shoot with my friend Mendy and her husband, Luke, was a blast. Since Mendy had a knee injury and couldn’t make the hike to this perfect little cove, we borrowed an off-road vehicle and had a little fun getting there.
Mendy had an idea of what she was going for, so we set out to capture those images first. We grabbed a coconut on the beach and put it to good use for a distance shot.
The next shot is my favorite of the session. So sweet and classic. I processed this one with a vintage feel.
Next, we went for some fun shots, trying different backgrounds and positions. We ended up with the spontaneous shot below after some splashing around in the waves.
I loved this shoot (I love most of them, really). This time of year is one of my favorites because people are more willing to do something creative. There will be more coming, since I’m booked every day this weekend. Christmas will be here before we know it!
