I photographed this family last year at the Carillon Hotel. This year I met them at Solé Miami in Sunny Isles Beach, Florida. It was so great seeing them again and their adorable daughter who is now in the I-will-do-what-I-want-to-do stage. She is miss independent. We were basically following her cues haha. She loved exploring the beach and pointing out the blue tinted Portuguese Man-of-War (similar to jellyfish) that were washed up along the shoreline. But most of all, she LOVES being thrown in the air by her dad – so high that her mom and I were freaking out a bit 🙂
I photographed this family from New York last year and was excited to photograph them again this year. Their adorable little daughter was now running around, and wanted to do what she wanted to do. Ha! She wasn’t a fan of the beach and the feeling of sand in her toes. With kids they usually love it or hate it, and right now it’s just not her thing. So we went to the boardwalk where she picked flowers and ran around with so much energy at 7:30am, just after sunrise.
Had a blast with this family from Chicago! I met them where they were staying on Allison Island in Miami Beach. Her parents joined in for some photos, too. We photographed by the waterway, and then when the sun became too intense we moved into a shadier spot. So much love going around for this adorable little boy.
