Large Family Photography Beach Session at Sunrise in Miami, Florida

So grateful I was able to photograph this Cuban-American family. The great-grandparents are just the sweetest couple, and every one in this extended family just radiated kindness and warmth. We met at South Pointe Park for a sunrise session. We took a variety of photos: the entire family together, each individual family, all the cousins together.. and my very favorite set of images, one of the grandson’s dancing with his grandmother. It was one of those rare moments where an entire family gets together, so getting to photograph them together was a special event.

You can also take a look at all of the photo sessions at South Pointe Park and sunrise beach sessions. Contact me here to book a family or couple photo session in Miami.

A big thank you to Manuel for the review he left me on Google after the session:

Exceeded my expectations! Absolutely gorgeous photos, great at communication and I could not be more happy with the results. I found Tova from a google search and I would highly recommend to anyone!

If you need ideas on what to wear to a family photo shoot, this Pinterest board has ideas for what to wear. White photographs really well on the beach, as you can see from this photo session. All white, white + khaki, white + jeans (except in the warm months), are easy to coordinate colors with a large, extended family and it looks good on the beach and by the greenery. You can also change it up by everyone wearing different colors (a mix of whites, blues, pinks, etc.). I think it’s best for everyone to feel comfortable in what they’re wearing, so wearing different colored outfits is fine, too!

I loved working with this kind, warm couple to photograph their maternity session.For this session we met up at South Pointe Park for a beach session before sunset. I loved the lace dress she wore and his complimentary outfit of white + khaki. She had no qualms getting in the water for some gorgeous reflections. They’re expecting a baby girl and I’m really happy and excited for them!

Check out all of the maternity photo sessions on the blog. If you need help choosing a location, I compiled a list of some of my favorite spots in Miami for a photo session. If you need help deciding on what to wear to a maternity photo shoot, this maternity Pinterest board has some ideas to get you started. Contact me here to book a session or email me directly at info@tovaphotography.com.

Maternity sessions are best scheduled around 6-8 months of pregnancy or when you are very obviously showing but still comfortable to walk around for a little while (30 minutes-1 hour). For beach sessions, the best time is around sunrise or 1-2 hours before sunset. For shady locations, the timing is more flexible so late morning or early afternoon can work.

Brickell Boat Surprise Proposal Photographer Miami, Florida

The Plan: Evan originally planned on proposing to Alex on the dock before getting onto the boat. I had scoped the area in advance and had been in touch with Evan as to exactly which boat it was so I knew where to stand. After proposing, they would go on a 3 or 4 hour boat ride around Miami.

How It Went Down: I arrived at the marina in Brickell next to the Four Ambassadors a little early and after speaking with the boat captain, he suggested that Evan propose on the boat itself instead of the dock. It was a Catamaran and there was a small flat area where he would be able to get on one knee. He got in touch with Evan who agreed to the new plan. I was going to pretend to be the captain’s first mate so she wouldn’t be suspicious.

I took off my shoes and socks, rolled up my jeans and discreetly placed my camera bag on the side. Alex and Evan arrived, and just as we planned, the captain introduced himself and then introduced me as his first mate. Evan had the captain hook his phone up through bluetooth so he could begin playing one of their favorite songs, Frankie Valli’s Can’t take my eyes off of you, from one of her favorite movies, 10 Things I Hate About You (see the Youtube clip of Heath Ledger singing the song to Julia Stiles). Evan got down on one knee to Alex’s complete shock – she had no idea. She said yes, and he placed the ring on her finger.

We took off on the boat for 20 minutes or so to get some photos out on the water, and then came back to shore to drop me off so they could continue on their boat ride. It was an amazing moment to capture and I’m so grateful I was able to witness and document their special day!
