Miami Beach Family Photo Session
I had such a great time photographing this family! We headed to South Pointe Park for a Miami Beach family photo session that combined mostly greenery shots with a few beach pictures. My favorite photos are of the parents and grandparents interacting with the kids. I especially loved when the grandparents laid down in the grass beside their 4 month old grandchild and when they crouched down to play with their other granddaughter. There was a lot of love and laughter, plus a few breaks to feed the baby who was much happier with a full belly 🙂 It was so easy and fun working with everyone that the time really flew by. We got the remaining golden minutes of sunlight on the beach, a great end to a fantastic session.
This session was the beginning of a very busy week of photographing families, I think the busiest of all of 2016! After I sent them their gallery, I was really touched to get this feedback:
Tova was wonderful and we’d definitely work with her again!! We had quite the group – 8 adults and two small babies and she was so easy going and completely ready with props and all to make the babies smile and grab their attention. When we arrived my daughter had just thrown up all over her dress and my niece was super fussy. With a very calm demeanor, she helped us all pull it together and get some great family photos! We were so thrilled with how lovely they came out, but we were also so happy to have someone professional and calm like Tova. It was a lovely experience thanks to Tova! (Read the review on Google)
Honestly, it’s messages and reviews like this that really makes it all worthwhile. Photo sessions aren’t always perfect, but what is? And define perfection. Is perfection having every strand of hair in place or a mother laughing with her child or a father getting a hug from his toddler? Or a couple hugging each other tight or laughing as one picks the other up and kisses them on the shore with the sound of the waves crashing behind them, their hair windblown from the ocean air? It doesn’t mean that I still don’t try to let people know if something looks out of place (like a phone bulging out of their pocket lol), but it’s simply when the love and spirit between people comes through that is most important to me. And it’s a total collaboration between the subject and photographer.
