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.
