Cake Smash on the Beach Family Photography Session

This sweet family was visiting from Israel and found my work on Instagram. I try to keep my social media accounts updated (Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest), and I have to admit that sometimes it feels like a pointless endeavor. It’s been nice lately to have gotten some clients through Instagram or Facebook; that’s when it feels like all the time I’ve spent uploading posts has paid off.

We met at at South Pointe Park before sunset. First we took some family photos and then it was time for the cake smash. The last 1 year old cake smash session I did the girl wasn’t very happy about getting her hands dirty but this boy was all in. We were laughing as he dug into the cake with both hands and looked up with a smile that said it all. His sister wasn’t too happy that it wasn’t her cake smash session. She sat herself next to her brother and cried. Minutes later the whole family was enjoying the rest of the cake, and she finally was consoled by having the cake to herself.

Can’t wait for them to see these photos when they’re all grown up! I imagine they’ll have a good laugh.

South Pointe Park Surprise Proposal and Engagement Photography

Bare with me while I am still catching up from blogging sessions that took place nearly half a year ago. It’s been a busy year.

I can still remember this day distinctly. I was anxiously waiting for them on a bench behind Smith & Wollensky. They walked past me and I began to follow them from a distance. The plan was for them to walk straight down the pathway to the beach, but there was some sort of film crew blocking the path. He ended up proposing at the end of the pathway out of view from the film crew, and I can still remember people behind me watching in awe (gasps of “oh my gawd!”) as he got down on one knee and proposed.

After the proposal, we walked to the water where the wind was blowing up a storm. This happens from time to time, it’s the beach after all, where we are at the mercy of mother nature. We walked to the top of the pier and I had them stand in a direction where the wind blew her hair back. After that we walked off the beach to an area with tall beach grass – the first photo, my favorite from the session, was in that area. The light was soft but not too blue; the sun had yet to set. For the last set of photos, we walked toward an area where there are rocks lining the water. He lifted her up, with the last remnant of light illuminating their smiling faces.

For this extended family photo session, we met at Pine Tree Park in Miami Beach. What’s nice about this spot is that there are so many trees providing ample shade. It’s a great place for a late morning or early afternoon session. In open areas such as the beach, the best time is close to sunrise and sunset when the light isn’t as harsh. For this particular session, we met for a late morning session.

I photographed each individual family, the entire family, and the grandparents with all of the grandkids (some of my favorite photos!). I loved working with them and am grateful to another client who referred them to me.
