 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.

Small, Intimate Miami Wedding Ceremony at Sunrise

While I specialize in family and couple photography, on occasion I’ll photograph very small, intimate outdoor wedding ceremonies that are usually no more than an hour or two long. I love the intimacy of just having close family members present, or sometimes it’s an elopement with just the couple, minister and myself. There’s no chaos involved, no crazy stress, no wedding planner, no hall, no intense planning. Just the couple committing themselves to each other. Saying their vows, declaring their love for each other, in an intimate ceremony with no additional bells and whistles to distract from what a wedding is really about.

This wedding took place just before sunrise at 6:45am on a cool Miami morning. Their closest family members were present, dressed in mostly white and cream colors. It was a beautiful ceremony, when the vows were said there were tears and smiles. After they were married, there was a palpable sense of joy and love. After taking some family portraits, we spent the remainder of the time capturing just the two of them under the golden glow of the rising sun.

The location for the wedding was on the beach behind the Soho Beach House in Miami Beach, Florida.

Family Photography in Miami Beach

You know how it can take time to get comfortable and feel at ease with strangers you’ve just met? Sometimes a photo session can start off a bit like that… and then after a short while the fun starts to happen. I like to start with the formal, more traditional photos that’s always nice to have. Then as time goes on, kids and adults feel more comfortable being themselves in front of the camera and things can get exciting and sometimes even a little chaotic 😉

After we took some group photos in the greenery we walked to the beach. The boys were hoisted onto the backs of their uncle and his partner where they finally had some real smiles and laughs. The parting jumping shot was so perfectly synchronized that no do-over was needed 🙂 I love that the session ended on a high note with everyone energized and in a great mood after spending quality time with their loved ones.

For family photography in Miami Beach, I recommend taking a look at these locations for a photo shoot. Or, send me your own ideas! If you have young kids, it’s always best to schedule it around when they’re happiest – after napping, eating, etc. It’s also handy to have drinks and snacks on hand for them. The best parting advice I can offer is to be super loving, affectionate and energetic at the photo session. The moments that are most cherished are ones that highlight the relationships we have with our loved ones.

This session took place in South Pointe Park in Miami Beach.
