Winter Family Session On Cala Olivera Beach
I hooked up with Lindsay Jay, Ivor and baby Hercules on a sunny December morning. Lindsay's favourite beach, Cala Olivera, was totally empty - not a single soul! This December was simply magical in Ibiza, 20+ degrees of sunny blue skies, warm enough for Lindsay to ditch the scarfs, blankets and layers of clothes. We actually ended up shooting skin on skin. It was so beautiful seeing baby Hercules cuddling Mummy and Daddy, giving them kisses and reaching for Lindsay's boobies from time to time. I always feel so intrigued by babies and Mummies (and Daddies of coruse).
I love seeing how our bodies adapt to be Mothers, to provide, to care for. To give life.
Lindsay and Ivor are so genuine, both very hard working (running an increadibly successful fitness business), they are real, fun and totally in love with each other and with being parents.
I don't shoot family portraits often and I'm super grateful for having an opportunity to have this new family in front of my lens.
