family Christmas vacation in
Playa Potrero
CostA Rica

Persinger Family

The Persinger family have been coming to Costa Rica since their oldest daughter, Shea, was a baby. With the years passing by, and several trips to Pura Vidadise, Catharine and Greg, mom and dad, decided to finally do family photos on the beach in Playa Potrero, their favorite place. And their two daughters, Shea and Ainsley, couldn’t have been cuter for family photos, with their brightly colored dresses and vibrant red hair! Traveling all the way from their home state of Alaska, the Persingers took full advantage of their family Christmas vacation in Playa Potrero Costa Rica.

Beach Engagement Photos in Playa Langosta || Laura + Richie

Tamarindo has a special way of bringing people together. Like Laura + Richie, who met each other in this tropical beach town a couple of years ago. I had the pleasure of knowing the two of them before they met each other, and the first time I saw them together, I could feel that they had something special. Fast forward to 2020, with Costa Rica’s borders closed and the whole world on lockdown because of the ‘Rona, COVID brought Laura + Richie even closer together.

The majority of family vacations in Costa Rica typically are for one week. But, there is so much to do and see in Pura Vidadise that the time goes by so fast. My first week long trip to Costa Rica, I definitely felt like I didn’t have enough time, so my second trip I booked for 10 days. And then my third trip…well I ended up packing up my NYC apartment and hopped a flight to Costa Rica for however long I wanted to!!!
