The McPherson family

By Jim Gates - 4 Oct 2014

Barefoot, casual dress and complementary Caribbean colors…my favorite combination for a shoot around the Ritz Carlton, Grand Cayman. Couple that with the McPhersons, a good looking and laid-back family and this shoot was a breeze!

Most people only have the beach in mind when they inquire about a portrait session, but in my opinion it’s wise not to overlook some of the garden areas the Ritz offers – backdrops that are equally as beautiful and still retain a unique Caribbean feel.  One of my favorites is to catch the evening light just before sunset on the way to the beach, and have my subjects surrounded by lush foliage and palms with bright colorful flowers in the foreground. If you’re coming to Cayman don’t forget to book an evening slot, they can go fast!
