Miami Newborn Photographer | At Home Session

It’s funny how often second newborns are so much more mellow than first babies! I don’t know if it’s the toddler sibling, or a birth order thing, but it is really amazing. This little newborn guy was awake for almost the whole photo session, but he was very content to just look around and snuggle his parents. He didn’t even complain when big sis wanted to hold him and kiss him.

And look, SO darn cute…

The Beach | Miami Family Photos

The orange glow of sunset mixed with the cool blues of the ocean… does it get any prettier than the beach? This mama wanted to capture a few moments with her gorgeous toddler son. It isn’t easy to photograph children at this age, but it’s very rewarding. They don’t pose, they don’t follow directions, they don’t give fake smiles or stand still. What you get from a toddler is genuine, weather it’s a tantrum or a laugh. It makes those smiles and moments really special, because you know they are real.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Mommy, the record keeper, the photo taker, the memory maker. She’s always behind the lens, making sure to capture those little moments. She knows they are only little once, and for such a short time. She feels them grow, change. She sees it before anyone else. She tries to capture each milestone the best she can, any way she can. Her heart is full of pictures.

Today, make sure mom gets in the picture. She wants to remember this time, this day, and her babies do too.

Moms, take selfies! Hand the camera to someone else. Snuggle your babies close and snap some pictures. You deserve to be in the frame. Your little ones will thank you one day when they look back through the albums and see your funky clothing and hairstyle, your smile, that look in your eyes. They might not remember being little, but they’ll love seeing the joy in your face, knowing how happy you were to be their mom.

Happy Mother’s Day!

The Beach Vacation | Miami Family Photographer

A few weeks ago my family and I spent a long weekend at the beach near Melbourne, Florida. We rented a lovely beach house right on the sand and got to spend a couple of days as close to the ocean as we could get. There’s really nothing like waking up and being able to walk on the beach at sunrise. It gets into your soul. Don’t you think so?

As a photographer, there’s nothing I like more than motion and light at the beach. As a person, there’s nothing I like more than being relaxed with my family. We need to get to the beach more.

Anna-Liisa Nixon - Beautiful images! Makes me realize we should really
get to the beach more often!

Editor - Thank you! We should too. We try to go often but it’s not often enough!

One Year Photos | Miami Baby Photographer

I had tons of fun doing an indoor/outdoor session with this little one-year-old baby! He is lucky to live near the beach, so we started out on the sand and then walked back to his house for the indoor photos. It doesn’t get much better than that!

I always love taking pictures at the beach. You can’t beat the light and the beautiful colors of the ocean. But, being at home is so much more relaxing for little kids. It was great to see the baby relax and get comfortable with the camera. I think he had fun too!

Indoor/outdoor photo sessions are awesome! Especially here in Miami where we have such beautiful outdoor spaces 🙂
