Sharing family moments

Every session is a unique adventure. I had the privilege of participating in a private photo shoot for a very special family in Playas del Coco. But what started out as a simple photo shoot turned into an unforgettable experience full of unexpected connections and surprises.

The house where the session took place had a breathtaking view of the bay of Playas del Coco.

The perfect setting to capture unforgettable moments.

As I began photographing them, I found myself immersed in their world, capturing moments of laughter, hugs, and complicity. Each family member had their own unique personality, and my goal was to capture the essence of each of them in every photograph.

But what really made this session special was the connection that formed between us. As the minutes ticked by, the barrier between photographer and family began to fade. We became accomplices in the search for the perfect shot, sharing stories and laughter as we explored different poses and scenarios.

At the end of the session, the roles of photographer and model were reversed. The family, with their spontaneity and infectious joy, made me the subject of the final photo. It was a fun and unexpected twist that captured the dynamic and surprising nature of this work.

We left with full hearts and precious memories. It was more than a photo shoot; it was an experience that brought us together for a unique moment in time. I learned that large group sessions are always full of surprises, and that the connections made through photography are just as important as the images themselves.
