So when some blog followers (and fellow bloggers) emailed that they were going to intercept us as they traveled up, and we headed down the Exuma chain we said "heck yes!" to a meet-up. When Katie added that she was also a professional photographer and would love to shoot our family on the beach, well, how could you say no to that?
Shortly after we set our anchor in the soft, white sand of Shroud Cay, we were greeted by Katie and Ben in their "pink dink" and made a date for a photo shoot on a nearby beach later that afternoon. Having never had a family photo taken since the infamous "white turtleneck" debacle of '91 (yes, it would *absolutely* qualify as an 'awkward family photo') we didn't really know what we should wear, so we settled on casual attire to match the incredible Bahamian hues that surrounded us. Corny? Perhaps. But I think the photos turned out fantastic and we are so grateful for Katie for taking these for us. Below are just a few of the many great shots she got for us.
Katie and Ben: it was SO great to meet you and spend some time with you guys! Thank you SO much for taking these fantastic photos - we will treasure them forever. Fair winds and we hope to cross wakes again some day.
