Family Photo Shoot: Bahamas Style

Considering our lifestyle, professional "family photo shoots" are not high on our list of priorities.  Sure, we take a TON of photos and have been known to use the self timer every once and a while, but most of our "family" photos are candid shots taken ourselves.

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.

Drinks, laughter and good company ensured on Asante post-photo shoot.  The only downside was that they were going up, and we were going down.  Fair winds Buckeye sailors!

That dress! It's precious! Looks like it came from somewhere special, but do you mind if I ask where you got it? Sweet pics! Dreaming of beach weather up here.

Corny outfits ... now way! Nothing but casual would fit that beautiful tropical scenery. Love Isla's little dress!

These pictures make me smile, as it reminds me of the great times we had with our little girl. She just turned 21 and just got engaged ... it flies! Those first few years were the best, and we weren't cruising ... what a great time in your life! Your smiles show it too!
