Just Two Little Girls | Miami Lifestyle Photographer

Here’s a simple day, like any other summer day in Miami, filled with sunshine and laughter. My girls were having a blast at the park… until they realized they were surrounded by mosquitos and ants, and then my four year old announced it was time to go:)How is it that these two little babies are getting so big already? My baby #1 is about to turn FOUR and the little bug is on her way to two without looking back. I love the little people they are becoming, but I wish them to be my baby girls forever. I’ll always remember our fun adventures on hot summer days and I hope they will too. Here are a few photos of our last park day before Alice started pre-k.

p.s.  The little one is much harder to catch these days!  Look for more of my baby Sofi next week.  Now that we have all morning alone together, she’s going to become quite familiar with my camera!

Megan - Your girls are gorgeous! I love every day photos – these are the ones we’ll look back on and cherish :) I know how you feel about them getting older, its bittersweet!

SugaShoc photography - Beautiful children and wonderful location! Love the colors!

Naturally Baby | Miami Newborn Photographer

I just love to photograph newborns as they are, simple and beautiful, nothing added.  There’s something so special about that impossibly soft skin, those itty bitty fingers, those squirmy little legs.  Newborns really are miracles, magical little humans that make us marvel.  We get to gaze upon these tiny beings, so fresh and new to the world looking back at us like everything is amazing, like everything is unique and interesting.  We should all be so lucky to look upon life this way once in a while.

Almost 4 | Miami Lifestyle Photographer

This is Alice.  She’s going to be four in a few weeks and she’s amazing.  I don’t know what it is, maybe the lazy summer, but she has been so creative lately.  She’s been making up silly rhymes and games so complex that it’s hard to believe she’s only three!  Here is a very creative drawing she did of our family yesterday.

Instead of regular people, she drew us all as talking flowers!  That’s her tiny baby sister at the bottom, her in the middle, her Papa on the left and me on the right.  The mommy flower even has long eyelashes:) Then she decided to draw a family of talking clouds above us.  Her mind is just amazing.

I’m so proud of this creative little bug.

Renee - I love that she drew you as flowers!! How adorable and creative! I love your lifestyle photography!

Let Her Sleep | Miami Lifestyle Photographer

I’ve always loved watching my babies sleep, their little bodies curled in blankets, faces scrunched up in dreams.  There is truly nothing more peaceful in the world.  When Alice was a baby we used to read, “It’s Time to Sleep, My Love,” before bed. I’ve always loved this part… “And as you dream inside your sleep, the fishes crooning in the deep, and all the songbirds up above will sleep and dream of you, my love, of you, the one I love.” - Nancy Tillman child sleeping, Miami lifestyle photographerchild sleeping, Miami lifestyle photographerchild sleeping, Miami lifestyle photographerchild sleeping, Miami lifestyle photographerchild sleeping, Miami lifestyle photographer
