Coral Gables Photographer Holiday Photo Session

Last year I photographed this family when they were still a family of three. Was so great to meet their newest addition who is crazy adorable and all smiles! We met at the beautiful entrance to Coral Gables called the Prado entrance. I LOVE this place. The light is simply beautiful in the morning and the coral structure is so unique to Miami. Last year we met at Matheson Hammock, another one of my favorite spots in Coral Gables.

We got some family photos for their holiday card, some sweet moments with grandma & grandpa, plus some candid moments documenting their family at this point in time. I love comparing the yearly photos and the little ways everyone changes, but it always seems most noticeable in the children who grow up so fast.

Last year they brought along their son’s favorite fire truck, which I thought was an awesome idea! This year they brought along some bubbles which captured their attention for a short while. While the youngest one is just a baby and still crawling, I can’t wait to see what next year is like once he’s running around!

The look we were going for for this session was a relaxed professional look in an outdoor environment. The company she is creating is about wellness in the workplace for women leaders, so a “softened business vibe” is what we were aiming for.

For the location, we ended up going with this really quaint spot called the Coral Gables Prado entrance. It has a coral structure with plenty of pillars and flowers along a small pathway. It’s a great spot for a morning session once the sun filters through about two hours after sunrise.

The 1 hour flew by, we had a blast laughing most of the way through! I love the two looks she wore- she did an impeccable job on the colors and styling. Everything was thought through – the colors she wore will match the resulting website.

I realized during the session how much I enjoyed this style of business portraits. Outdoor Miami business headshots and lifestyle portraits are so much more dynamic and interesting than indoor, bland portraits on a backdrop, in my opinion.

If you are a business entrepreneur, author, speaker, lawyer, etc. and are looking for a photographer to take pictures for your website that are more natural and showcase your personality, please contact me and tell me what vision or vibe you have in mind.

I photographed this family back in 2012 and had even more fun with them this time around 🙂 The kids were so sweet together, love when sessions are filled with lots of love, hugs & cuddles.

We headed to Matheson Hammock Park in Coral Gables for this Coral Gables Family Photographer Session. Matheson is one of my favorite locations and I couldn’t recommend it enough for a family session. I have it on my list of Miami locations and for good reason: it has a huge park with so many different spots to take photos; it’s simply beautiful and unique!

If you are looking for a Coral Gables Family Photographer, I would love to discuss your vision and what you have in mind for your photo session. I would suggest looking a my post on what to wear for a session. You can also check out my top five tips on how to prepare for a family session.

As a  Coral Gables Family Photographer we can talk about locations nearby or some that are a bit further away. Another favorite spot of mine if the Prado entrance on 57th Avenue and 8th Street. It’s a quiet spot that is really pretty and has great light in the late morning.

A photo session at Matheson Hammock is best in the early or late morning or in the afternoon around two hours before sunset. Depending on the time of year, there can be mosquitoes in the park so I recommend bringing along mosquito repellent. Feel free to bring along a change of clothes, but it’s not necessary.
