Family Photos at Las Catalinas, Playa Danta
We really lucked out with these family photos in Playa Danta, Costa Rica. It's always iffy trying to book a photo session in Guanacaste in October, because you never know when it might rain. We got rained out in the evening and rescheduled for the morning, which was beautiful!
There are so many amazing places for photos around Playa Danta, it was hard to choose. I love this bridge!
This one is my favorite. Three generations of women! Babies, mommy and grandma.
Playa Danta, Costa Rica is one of my favorite places for family photos.

Family Reunion Photos in Playa Langosta, Costa Rica
This family reunion was a blast. Parents, kids, grandkids...everyone got together for a big family vacation in Tamarindo and Langosta, Costa Rica. We got a killer sunset at the end, too, for silhouettes. SO FUN!

One of my favorite Tamarindo family photos of the evening.
I just love these rocks in Langosta. They are perfect for family photos in Costa Rica!

Guanacaste School Play and Race for La Paz
I'm combining this into one event because both of these happened over the same weekend. The kids in the Beachnuts theatre production are SO talented! As are the kids who got up at the crack of dawn to run in the La Paz fundraising race.
The costumes at the Beachnuts Production were incredible!

My favorite costume from the evening, hands down! Such a cutie pie.

Getting warmed up - good music is essential for a good race.
First Communion Ceremony in Playa Brasilito Church
The beaches surrounding Tamarindo, Costa Rica also make surprisingly great places for ceremonies like first communions. This ceremony was held in a beautiful church in Playa Brasilito, just 25 minutes from Tamarindo.
