These twin 4 years olds are just beyond cute. Such sweeties with matching personalities.
It is funny when you start chatting with families and you realize how much you have in common. Luckily the twins were cooperative because after the family portrait session, the adults were able to chat at length about their mutual love for the Virgin Islands, both the US and BVI. Funny how paths cross. The conversation about the Soggy Dollar Bar on Jost Van Dyke and the surly customs officers in St. John (I don't get it, how can you be surly when you are surrounded by paradise?) brought me right back to one of the most special places in this hemisphere.
Keith and I fell in love a long time ago with that area of the world. We loved it so much that we were married on St John surrounded by 65 of our closest family and friends. We have made several trips to that tiny little island in the BVI, Jost Van Dyke. Any one who has ever been there (painkiller, anyone?) knows how easy it is for your mind to think for a minute about staying there forever.
As wedding photographers, we have also had the good fortune of being hired to photograph destination weddings on the islands. Keith and I often let that crazy thought of relocating to paradise cloud our heads. We think about setting up shop as a photographer in Cruz Bay (I can envision it now) - and then reality sets in. Where would the kids go to school? Could I live on an island? What happens if someone gets sick? What about the grandparents?
I'll stop dreaming, I guess that's what vacations are for!
