El Bob Relaxes in Cancun

El Bob makes his way to the east coast of Mexico for the first time to Cancun. Thankfully he stayed at a family friendly resort, Now Jade, instead of fighting his way through intoxicated Spring Breakers. While El Bob could have gotten all his eats, sun, and water in the all inclusive resort, he was able to check out some local beaches too. Do you recognize the boat he’s sitting on?

Corazon from Mexico

During my destination wedding trip to Cancun, Mexico, I had the pleasure of meeting Corazon who lives there and models freelance, originally from Oregon. My beach shoots usually consists of renting a car and scouting the area for local non-touristy and secluded beaches to photograph. I find that locals outside the U.S. care the least about photo shoots, while even American tourists can get upset about having a nude model on the beach they’re visiting. I like to drive down the beach highways and when I see exit signs for local beaches, I pull in and scout. Paamul beach was a narrow long road that led to a security booth, where the guard gave us a long speech in Spanish and I thought he was going to kick us out for whatever reason. When asked to repeat in English, he was just warning us not to bring our own food/alcohol, and other miscellaneous beach rules. Off we went to find the right spot by the water, and the other beach security guards didn’t bother us setting up a photo shoot. This is never allowed in the U.S.! It was a fun and easy shoot, Corazon is a great model to work with and a treat to have during my trip!
