Miami Beach Botanical Gardens Family Photography

It was on a weekend afternoon that we met at the Miami Beach Botanical Gardens. They have two delightfully friendly, adorable boys and another on the way. The mother mentioned to me beforehand that she wanted to focus on family photos not just maternity pictures. The importance was to document their family at this point in time, and I love the moments that resulted.

As a photographer you generally have to give lots of direction – setting people up, providing ideas, etc. (otherwise you’d have a bunch of people standing around wondering what to do). But with young kids there’s only so much control you can have. Sessions can be a little hectic but at the same time, there’s beauty in that. It’s those moments you don’t plan for that can sometimes lead to the most unexpectedly beautiful photograph that you’re most proud of. For example, in the third to last image of the boy lifting his shirt up to mimic his mom’s pregnant belly – that was entirely unplanned. But it’s so adorable that it makes me smile every time I look at it.

The parents were so laid back yet at the same time extremely loving and in-tuned with their children’s needs. Their boys are equally warm and loving. They relished in the attention they got from their parents, showered in hugs and kisses. I’m looking forward to seeing them again when they’ll be a family of five 🙂

Miami Beach Botanical Gardens is a great spot that I adore for family photography. There is a small fee for photographing here, but it is so worth it in my opinion! Other Miami photography locations are listed on my website.
