Love these portraits we captured as the sun was setting. You wouldn’t know it, but it was a Sunday afternoon with a packed beach. It’s not easy for most people being in front of a camera with lots of people around, but she nailed it! Loved her fierceness and confidence.
I really love working with women who want a portrait session, it’s one of the best gifts you can give yourself. Bring an outfit change or two and we’ll head to your favorite spot. I also love working with business professionals that are looking for natural, outdoor portraits that are different than your typical (and boring!) isolated-on-white headshot.

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.
