Hacienda Pinilla Family Photos || Boyle Family:

They ran through a royal palm tree grove, danced on the beach, met some pretty awesome beach cows, found some pretty awesome shells, played with a couple Costa Rican beach dogs, and raced each other on the beach. Only a year each separates siblings Sloan, Blair, and Pierce, but despite their close age these three siblings are unique. Sloan loves to dance, Blair loves to have a good time, and Pierce – – well, let’s just Pierce definitely likes to get dirty.

But these three siblings do agree on three things – – their love for the beach, ocean, and Costa Rica. From boogie boarding, horseback riding on the beach, zip lining through the jungle, to surf lessons at Playa Avellanas, Sloan, Blair, and Pierce are three adventurous siblings. To say the least, these three certainly kept me on my toes in the best possible way during family photos at Hacienda Pinilla last week. Sloan, Blair, Pierce, and I explored the pristine beach at Playa Avellanas, dodging a passing rain storm that just-so-happened to create a spectacular, dramatic sky backdrop. Kinda like this…badda bing, badda BOOM!Siblings playing on the beach in Playa Avellanas Costa Rica with a magical cloud sky. Photographed by Kristen M. Brown, Samba to the Sea Photography.

After a fun afternoon of exploring the beach, collecting sea shells and chasing cows, what better way to end their family photo session than by splashing in the ocean with their good clothes? Sorry mom! Pierce at first seemed to be dominating the splash fight, but low and behold eldest sister Sloan walked away from the splash fight the driest of her siblings!
