family vacation beach photos in
CostA Rica

Pusch Family

The month of November by far is my favorite month in Costa Rica. The earth is super lush and green from six months of rainy season and the temperatures “cooler”, but with the beautiful weather of dry season. And having been away from Pura Vidadise for 8 months thanks to the ‘Rona, it felt good to arrive back during my favorite month. And to top that off, what better way to get back into the photography swing than with some of the most fun clients?! 

Two and a half years ago the Pusch family first visited with big brother Knox and his then little 3 month old sister Charlie, and ever since our photo session at the Four Seasons Papagayo during their family trip to Costa Rica, they couldn’t wait to come back! The Pusch’s decided to stay at The Andaz Papagayo this trip, and to change up the scenery, we decided on doing their family photos in Tamarindo. I of course was super excited to be able to show them the best locations on the beach in Tamarindo in my tropical home base, and most importantly, capture some beautiful family moments. 💕 

Gabi, Anthony, Knox, and Charlie…I can’t wait until next year and to continue our tradition of family photos in 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.
