Family Photo Session: Coral Gables Prado Entrance
I had such a great time photographing this family! We met at one of my favorite spots called the Coral Gables Prado Entrance. It’s not a very large area but I find that there are quite a few different spots to use that even spending an hour here you can get different backgrounds.
Their kids were a little shy at first, especially their son. But it wasn’t before long that he completely warmed up and was such a personality. Their daughter would look at me and give me a great gaze, peering directly at the camera.
After taking a few family portraits and some of just the kids together, we let them be. They loved running around and playing hide-and-seek. We ended the session with the parents playing with their kids, throwing them in the air and spinning them around. This equals pure joy on the kids faces, my favorite kind of photos.
If you are looking for a unique location with a mix of architecture and greenery (this place has great coral arches and decaying fountains that are still beautiful), this place would be it. It’s a great place for couples, maternity or family sessions. I also photographed one of my favorite sets of business portraits / business headshots at this spot. You can check out all the photo sessions I have taken at the Coral Gables Prado Entrance. The light is beautiful here in the late morning, a couple of hours after sunrise, or in the afternoon just a few hours before sunset.
