Miami Beach Friends Photo Session

How awesome are these two friends?! We had such a blast photographing at South Pointe Park. We started off with some portraits by the greenery. The sun was still intense but beautiful, illuminating their faces and highlighting their hair with a golden glow. We ventured to the water for more fun and adventurous photos. That headstand? They nailed it on the first shot. And then there was the 360 degree flip. Are you kidding me?? I can’t do a cartwheel or even touch my toes (seriously. I’m not flexible at all). I love the last shot where they ran into the ocean together, not caring that it’s winter in Miami (aka 80 degrees. Sorry.) and the water is definitely not 90 degrees anymore. Free spirits + adventurous is what this session was all about.

If you’re thinking of of having a Miami Beach friends photo session, you don’t have to bring anything along. But you can get creative and bring along some beach balls like these high school friends did. Or anything else you can think of. Celebrating a birthday in Miami Beach is so much more fun when you can have a professional take your photos for a full hour or two (the time goes by much faster than you think!). Here are other friends photo sessions in Miami. (I’ve taken so many more sessions of friends but the blog does get neglected from time to time… New Year’s resolution is to keep this blog updated for once.)

See all the photo sessions that were taken at South Pointe Park. All of my favorite spots for a photo session are listed on my website.

One of my favorite photos from the last session we did several years back:

South Beach Family Photography Session

I photographed this family several years ago for a South Beach family photography session. We met at South Pointe Park and headed back to this gorgeous spot for this year’s session. It was so nice seeing them again; they are so easy to work with and I love how relaxed the session was since it felt like seeing old friends again.

We started off with some photos in the greenery where the light was just beautiful. I have a favorite spot in the park where the wind is calmer (read: less crazy hair blowing in all directions), the sun acts as a hairlight, and the sidewalk in front of them is like a reflector that illuminates their faces. My favorite family photo – the last black and white one – was taken in that spot.

Just as we began heading to the beach, the wind began picking up as dark clouds started rolling in. We took a few by the sand dunes just before it started raining, and then pouring (I know, this seems to be a new pattern!) Luckily we made it to a fairly protected spot before they were completely drenched. The rain quickly passed a mere ten minutes later so we walked back out to the water and ended with some beach photos. Can’t wait to photograph them in the future and see how they change!

There are a number of options for a South Beach family photography session: South Pointe Park (obviously), Lummus Park, Miami Beach Botanical Gardens, Lincoln Road Mall, New World Symphony park, and a walk through Miami’s Art Deco district. See a full list of Miami photography locations.

What a perfect afternoon with these three. They were so easy to work with, and such kind and sweet people. We had the most gorgeous golden light before sunset and made use of both the greenery at South Pointe Park (I keep discovering new spots there where the light is just perfect) and the beach. So happy with how the photos turned out. Their mom brought a small little blue blanket which worked out perfect for the photos where I had them sit on the grass and on the sand.

If you follow my work you know I go to South Pointe quite often. If you want beach photos it’s one of the best beach locations (except for most weekend afternoons where it can get quite slammed with people). The greenery there is also quite beautiful, with a variety of native trees (seagrapes, coconut trees) and tall beach grass there’s really no shortage of scenic spots here.

As a South Pointe Park Family Photographer I am extremely familiar with this area and will take you to the spots where the light is best. I’ve done plenty of couple and engagement shoots here as well since South Pointe provides a variety of backdrops so the photos don’t end up looking static.

Contact me to book your next family or engagement session in Miami. Take a look at my other best spots in Miami for a photo shoot. See all the photo sessions at South Pointe Park on the blog.
