Aruba's Caribbean Ocean & Coral Reefs

Photography plays a big part in my life. I love capturing moments and being an avid snorkeler I decided to capture the beauty as I see it under the sea.
Four years have gone by with underwater photography and creating a blog for what I have seen is to be shared for everyone. Aruba's ocean is slowly dying, locals don't seem to know the facts of  the critical matter at hand with our coral reefs dying out and the government is doing little to nothing to protect, preserve and save the reefs surrounding the island.
As everyone knows about the Great barrier Reefs coral dying off due to climate change it is also here in Aruba. This global trend needs attention that is why my family and I  decided to take action in photography and graphing the locations to get the word out and let locals, tourists and the world see what soon will be a destruction of our marine life as we know it.

Birthday Wishes for Addyson

Happy Birthday Addyson
by Angela Munzenhofer

The Speer family return to Aruba but this time bring their adorable girl Addyson on their Aruba Vacation. Amanda and her husband Shawn have visited many times as this was Amanda's parents vacation spot. Amanda's parents Mr. & Mrs.Petrone first visited on their honeymoon and brought both siblings back to visit Aruba ever since. They loved the island so much that they wanted to share the beauty of sun, sand and beach with their daughter Addyson who turned one. A family/birthday photo session to capture for memories to come.

This was Addyson's first trip to Aruba and by looking at the images you can see that she loved the beach fun especially with the sunglasses. Addyson was a joy to capture with her outfit changes and her smiles.Mom and dad enjoyed the romantic fun moments as well.
