While I get caught up on things, I have many updates on the Typhoon Haiyan aftermath on Facebook; just click through here: https://www.facebook.com/Bantayan.Island.Philippines

Bantayan Island's cleanup has gone better than I was expecting; most hotels are open, as are some restaurants, and things are slowly coming along, and I'll be writing more later - stay tuned.

Family Vacation Portraits on Bantayan Island Philippines: Peter & Family from New Jersey USA

In May I did a great vacation shoot with my friend Peter from New Jersey who sought me out to do his Family photographs while they were here enjoying the Island, and these are some of the primary edits that made the cut from just under 200 images taken that day, on location at South Beach/Kota Beach in Santa Fe, as well as HoyoHoy Villas the next day,  for a group shot.

The weather was great, and so were Peter's Family in front of the camera - we all had a great time getting some really nice images that went way beyond the usual (and dull) phone camera snapshots most people come away with, when they try to do (important) pictures themselves - so I'm pleased with Peter giving me creative license to do what I do best.

Enjoy this compilation, and if you'd like the same for your Family while you're here, just contact me to schedule your own photo shoot, and we'll go from there.
