Miami Beach, Florida

South Pointe Park

South Pointe Park, Miami BeachSouth Pointe Park is a great spot in South Beach. It is a large park with greenery, palm trees, hills and rocks lining the bay and ocean. It is next to a beautiful beach with a large expanse of sand. South Pointe Park is a very picturesque spot that is quintessential Miami with the best of both worlds – the beach and greenery! Check out this engagement session and family session at sunrise, another family session before sunset or check out all the sessions on the blog that were taken there.

 

Miami Beach Botanical Gardens

Miami Photography LocationsA small, yet beautiful, botanical gardens in the heart of South Beach. It’s right next to the Convention Center and just a 5-10 minute walk to Lincoln Road Mall. Even great for little kids – it has a cute red bridge that runs over a little pond with fish – great to capture the little ones attention! This green living space is a great spot for family or engagement photos. Check out some photo sessions from Miami Beach Botanical Gardens on the blog. There is a $50 fee to photograph here.

 

Art Deco District

Miami Photography LocationsThe Art Deco District runs through the South Beach, from 6th Street all the way down to 18th Street and contains over 800 historical structures built between 1923 and 1943. This would be a great, fun walk for an adventurous couple looking for something a little different for their Miami Photography.

Lummus Park

Pine Tree Park

Pine Tree ParkPine Tree Park is a small park in Miami Beach with a lot of trees providing shade. Photo sessions here can be scheduled in the late morning or early afternoon because of the ample shade so we don’t have to deal with the harsh, mid-day sun. It is also a popular spot for dogs – just something to be aware of 🙂 Here is a family newborn session that was taken at Pine Tree Park.

 

Coral Gables and Coconut Grove, Florida

Coral Gables Prado Entrance

Miami Photography LocationsA unique spot in Coral Gables located at 57th Avenue & 8th Street, the Prado Entrance has two beautiful walkways with blooming colorful flowers and elegant archways. See a photo session from the Coral Gables Prado Entrance on the blog and a short video on YouTube. Here are all the photo sessions that were taken at the Prado Entrance.

 

 

Matheson Hammock Park

Matheson Hammock, Coral GablesOne of my favorite spots in Miami, Matheson is a huge park with several different sections. There is a trail for walkers or cyclists where you are surrounded by native mangroves, another huge section with beautiful, large oak trees lined with moss, in addition to a charming little beach by the bay – perfect for families and couples. If you want Miami photographs which show a unique side of Miami that is more hidden from popular view, this would be it. Matheson Hammock is great in late fall and winter in Miami. See a  family session at Matheson on the blog and another here.

 

 The Deering Estate

The Deering Estate is an environmental, archaeological and historical preserve, originally home to Charles Deering until 1927. This 444-acre Estate encompasses globally endangered pine rockland habitat, among the largest blocks of this ecosystem remaining in the United States, as well as coastal tropical hardwood rockland hammocks, mangrove forests, salt marshes, a coastal dune island and the submerged resources of Biscayne Bay. There is a fee to obtain a photography permit.

 

Vizcaya Museum & Gardens

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, MiamiVizcaya was created as James Deering’s subtropical winter home in the 1910s and today it is a National Historic Landmark and accredited museum. While photography is not permited in the museum itself, the enchanting gardens make a perfect backdrop for Miami photos which show a unique historic aspect of the city. A photography permit is required. On the blog you can see a family session at Vizcaya and an engagement session at Vizcaya.

 

The Barnacle Historic State Park

Miami Photography LocationsThe Barnacle was built in 1891 on the shore of Biscayne Bay and is the oldest house in its original location in Miami-Dade County. The Barnacle is a wonderful retreat from the hustle and bustle of Miami. A walk into the park passes through a tropical hardwood hammock and leads you into a view of the historic structure and further down a view of the bay. Here is a photo session that taken at The Barnacle.

Key Biscayne, Florida

Crandon Park

Crandon-Park-Key-BiscayneCrandon Park is a beautiful beach spot in Key Biscayne with lots of colorful palm trees on the beach itself.

In-Home Sessions

Miami Photography LocationsIn-home sessions are a great option for natural photos of small families in a setting that children are very comfortable in. They’re particularly great for newborns and babies where they are out of the sun and in a place where you can comfortably feed or change them. My style is to capture natural and genuine photos of you interacting with the baby – cuddles and snuggles, reading to the baby, etc. Rooms with large windows allowing in plenty of natural light are necessary for photo sessions at home. See my blog post of an in-home photo session that was taken when the baby was just a few weeks old.
