 Amanda Jane Daley at 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach

Amanda Jane Daley is a Business Mentor for Health Coaches & Wellness Entrepreneurs. To quote from her website:

Known for her online marketing mastery (with 18 years of experience) Amanda has earned recognition by the world’s top advertising awards — and in just a few years, has built a high six-figure coaching business. As owner of the thriving Health Coaching practice ‘Fuel Urban Wellness’, Amanda now combines her health, wealth + business expertise to mentor other entrepreneurs and coaches achieve the same goals. Driven by a dream of shifting the way the world values health, Amanda has become the go-to expert for healthy entrepreneurs who desire a heart-fuelled business and a freedom-based lifestyle.

She wanted to have a meeting she was having with some clients documented. I met this ambitious and driven group of women in a hotel suite at the 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach. Besides for photographing Amanda in action, I also photographed each woman individually so they have some professional portraits for their websites and social media platforms.

We then headed to Plnthouse, a restaurant by chef Michael Kinney, which is located inside the hotel. The restaurant itself is beautiful. There is so much natural light streaming in and potted plants throughout give it a natural, environmental feel. (See a photo of Plnthouse.) It was a dream to photograph there (location is everything!) I took some portraits of Amanda that are some of my favorites from this session, and photographed the group as they continued their meeting.

Also check out Tatiana Amico’s website, facebook and instagram account. These health coaches are not only kind, easy-to-relate to women, they are also some pretty fierce women who I would highly recommend to help you get healthy and fit.

Family of Four Miami Beach Photo Session

This family of four was so easy to photograph! The kids were extremely well-mannered and especially sweet toward their youngest sister. We headed to South Pointe Park before sunset. We initially took photographs on the side of the bay, where the water was blue and sun shining. Typical Miami weather, we headed to the beach where the wind was picking up and a bit of cloud cover settled in. Off we headed to the green hill, out of the wind’s mercy. We got some really nice portraits of the kids and some great shared moments of laughter. Luckily it started to rain just as the shoot was over! Luck was on our side.

Miami Beach Botanical Gardens Family Photography

It was on a weekend afternoon that we met at the Miami Beach Botanical Gardens. They have two delightfully friendly, adorable boys and another on the way. The mother mentioned to me beforehand that she wanted to focus on family photos not just maternity pictures. The importance was to document their family at this point in time, and I love the moments that resulted.

As a photographer you generally have to give lots of direction – setting people up, providing ideas, etc. (otherwise you’d have a bunch of people standing around wondering what to do). But with young kids there’s only so much control you can have. Sessions can be a little hectic but at the same time, there’s beauty in that. It’s those moments you don’t plan for that can sometimes lead to the most unexpectedly beautiful photograph that you’re most proud of. For example, in the third to last image of the boy lifting his shirt up to mimic his mom’s pregnant belly – that was entirely unplanned. But it’s so adorable that it makes me smile every time I look at it.

The parents were so laid back yet at the same time extremely loving and in-tuned with their children’s needs. Their boys are equally warm and loving. They relished in the attention they got from their parents, showered in hugs and kisses. I’m looking forward to seeing them again when they’ll be a family of five 🙂

Miami Beach Botanical Gardens is a great spot that I adore for family photography. There is a small fee for photographing here, but it is so worth it in my opinion! Other Miami photography locations are listed on my website.
