1 Hotel South Beach Family Photography


1 Hotel South Beach Family Photography

Erin contacted me about setting up a beach photo session to capture the love they share and the memories they’ve made together as a family. Even though they didn’t plan for it in advance, somehow they had the perfect wardrobe wearing white, cream, light blue and pink which stood out well against the blue of the water (see ideas for what to wear to a session).  They couldn’t have been more fun and easy to work with. As a photographer, you can suggest ideas and poses but you need the connection and love between people for magic to happen. The ones of them laughing are some of my favorites 🙂

They were also extremely flexible with the timing of the session. Some days can be cloudy with less light to work with, while this particular day was very sunny so I asked them if they were okay with postponing it to a bit later to get the golden light (and less squinting!) which they quickly agreed to. We managed to finish the session just as the sun was setting.

For this photo session, we met up at the beach behind the 1 Hotel South Beach. Because lots of the buildings along Collins Avenue can block the sun, I try to head to areas in between the buildings where the light comes through. We found a spot close-by on the beach which worked perfectly.

Their adorable little boy was very friendly from the beginning – I looked at him and he broke out in a sweet smile. Playing peek-a-boo from behind the camera we were able to get a great family shot of all three smiling. After playing with dad and going on a walk with mom for some individualized attention from each parent, we went to the beach. He started getting tired but what I love about that is that he was finally happy to relax on his mom’s shoulder’s (some of my favorite moments) after wanting to run off by himself in the beginning!

Family of Four Photography Session

Really enjoyed meeting and photographing this family of four. In the beginning of the photo session, the boys acquiesced to giving their parents hugs and kisses. Soon they were off and running, scaling the small hills at South Pointe Park. They ran along the water at the beach and then with their arms around each other, they watched the cruise ships slowly pass the port of Miami. We managed to squeeze in one more fun family photo, lying on the grass with their heads pressed closely together. Soon they were off and running again – their two boys have boundless energy! We ended the session with them rolling down the hill and tickling their parents under the fading golden glow of sunset.
