Baby Bump Photos in Tamarindo, Costa Rica || #BooCroo Family:

The #BooCroo certainly does family vacations like no other. With Daymien, four year old Chevelle, 13 month old Juriah, and one on the way, Chelea and Jordan showed their little family one heck of a family vacation in Costa Rica. Starting in the jungle in Arenal, the family explored the hanging bridges, Lake Arenal, jungle trail walks, natural hot springs park, and some awesome pool time at their hotel. Yes, for sure doing it like no other before heading down to the beach in Tamarindo!

Once in Tamarindo, the family instantly fell in love with the beach. They played in the sand, took surf lessons (Daymian rode a wave all the way to the beach!), and had some great meals beachside. And on the last afternoon of their family vacation, I met up with this awesome family for one epic golden hour family photo session. From the moment I met up with the #boocroo, there never was a dull moment.

Daymian immediately found a small hermit crab, followed by several other ones as we explored the beach. (Seriously, I don’t know how he found so many!!) 13 month old Joriah, affectionately known as JuJu, was such a doll — one of the happiest and well behaved babies I’ve ever photographed. And sooooo photogenic — JuJu loved looking into the camera! Little Señorita Chevelle was full of sass and kept her family laughing the whole afternoon.

As the sun started to pass over the horizon, Mother Nature started to put on a show. Chelea slipped into a beautiful purple maternity gown that the wind gracefully swept into the air. Juju had a blast being tickled and thrown into the air by his dad, Chevelle showed me her best surfer stance, and Daymian kept finding hermit crabs! To top off a gorgeous afternoon and a stunning sunset, Chelea got a tad bit sandy and showed off her beautiful bump as the waves crashed around her. Holy wow!
