Delano South Beach Hotel Engagement Photo Session
These two happened to be in Miami at the same time, coincidentally at the same hotel. Both were with a friend hanging out at the pool by the Delano Hotel in South Beach. They ended up talking for hours over drinks and hit it off right away. They shared a lot in common and knew there was a connection. They kept in touch over long distance and now here they are several years later, engaged. They thought it would be a good idea to head back to where they met for the first time. It was funny as they spotted the couch where they had their first conversation. After spending some time at the hotel, we headed to the beach before sunset for the remainder of the session.

I love photographing engagement sessions and will work with you to figure out the best location for you and recommend the best time for lighting. You can opt to wear one outfit for the whole session or change mid-session for a different look (one more dressy, one more casual for example). It’s totally up to you! Best advice I have is to be yourself – always wear what is comfortable and makes you feel really good – and just enjoy being with your partner. I give plenty of direction on what to do during the session but am always open to any ideas you might have. It’s normal to feel awkward at first being photographed but as the session goes on you’ll get more comfortable and feel more at ease 🙂
Miami Maternity Photo Session
These two came down to Miami Beach from Ocala, Florida and decided to schedule a beach maternity session while in town. They were so easy to photograph! Their love for each other really shows, and this momma-to-be looked especially radiant. At seven months pregnant, it was the perfect time to show off her belly. Sometimes the husbands aren’t exactly thrilled to take part in a photo session, but he was so sweet and gladly obliged with all my ideas. I’m so excited for these two future parents! Can’t wait to meet the little one next time they’re in town.

I generally recommend scheduling a maternity photo session around 7 months, when you’re showing but still feel pretty comfortable. This is of course up to you – it could be scheduled at 6 or 8 months depending on your body and how you’re feeling. Once the baby arrives, I love photographing the newborn stage. This can can take place n the comfort of your own home (any room with lots of windows and natural light works best) or outdoors in a very shady area.
