I’ve known Lauren and Duccio for a while now ever since I shot their incredible wild, infamous 3 day wedding in Ibiza back in 2010. If you aren’t familiar with it, it’s the one and only wild 3 day big party of a wedding celebration…… with a 1920’s themed attire for one day, a hippy chic theme for another and yes, topless tasselled dancers on daybeds greeting guests as they arrived at the drinks reception and soul legend Barbara Tucker singing their first dance live overlooking the Mediterranean sea. There may even have been a pole on the dance floor……
So fast forward 4 years and the Duranti couple have become a fully fledged family. Avid Ibiza fans, they now have a home here too, and it was only fitting that Ibiza would be the location for their family portraits, with Lyla and her baby brother joining the shoot this time around, along with his godparents.
Now babies dictate the time you shoot, so there was no sunset shooting here. Shooting at midday poses it’s own challenges but a beautiful all white modern apartment provided the cool and shade and stylish backdrop, and then we all headed to the beautiful Sa Caleta beach, one of my natural favourites, with it’s red rocky cliffs and crashing waves. I think we had all of 90 seconds before the kids called it a day, but we just managed to get that quintessential shot of everyone on the rocks.
Lauren and Duccio, it’s such a pleasure to document your growing family and I look forward to seeing you again in Ibiza soon! Hasta Luego!
