Matheson Hammock Family Photo Shoot

I photographed this family last year at the Miami Beach Botanical Garden. I now realize that must have been right before the pandemic hit and things started shutting down locally. This year when I met up with them we talked about how so much had changed in such a short time.

We met this year at one of my all-time favorite spots – Matheson Hammock Park in Coral Gables. While the beach is always a beautiful place for photos, the parks have their advantages: lots of shade from the sun so it’s easier to not squint; beautiful sunlight that peers through the trees and acts as a hair light; and it’s also easier to engage babies at parks because the ocean really draws their attention so it makes it much more difficult to get them to look at the camera. The only downside is the mosquitoes in the summer but I use this mosquito repellant which has no odor. (I used to use deet but it reeks!)

Back to this photo shoot. The girls wanted to have fun and explore, so they climbed trees, ran through the forest of large oak trees and also posed for some photos so we could get some of my favorite close up shots. It’s always a delight photographing them!
