Goodness, time flies… • beach photographer miami

It’s so redundant to say how time flies, I mean we’re down to a little over a month before 2013! Yet, it’s so much more palpable for me as I watch all the babies I have photographed since they were born now turning 4, 5, 6, 7, 8…calling me by my name (which always melts my heart into a puddle), doing sports, Communions, dancing, losing teeth, getting braces….*sigh*. I’m so blessed and so grateful to get to do what I do. I’ve seen Melina and Kalia grow from the beginning and get so excited to see them every year and plan their shoot with their awesome Mom. This time around Kalia (the little one) was really friendly and calling me by name – yes I died from cuteness overload. :) Love this family so much and the beautiful slice of time we get to spend every year talking, laughing and taking a few pictures in between. Here’s a highlight of their shoot, great outfits right? Enjoy! ♥ Vanessa

P.S. The oldest (Melina) is on the header of this blog – big cheeks, big curls, looking through the gate with umbrella in hand…

Just another fun day • Family photographer in Miami

When you have a family of six (with four kids) it’s quite a task to get everyone excited about doing family photos. So we decided to have it be like any other day of fun in the backyard…and what fun this was. Swings, trampoline, dancing, shooting the basketball and finally some family shots on the boat. Love the happiness in the swing shots. They were flying really high which brought back many childhood memories of doing the same. This first one is a favorite. Enjoy! ♥ Vanessa

Noelle’s 6 months • baby photographer in Miami

It’s hard to believe that it’s already been six months since Noelle’s newborn session. It always brings me such joy documenting all the babies’ stages; capturing the new expressions – specially the funny ones – but even more is seeing the wonder in their eyes as they absorb a new experience, like the feeling of grass in their hands and feet. Noelle LOVED the grassy mossy wall I photographed her against. She was completely hypnotized by the textures and colors. Can’t wait to see her walking! Here’s a snippet of her shoot. Enjoy! ♥ Vanessa

Knock knock… • Miami newborn photographer

…who’s there…don’t bother answering, I’m already here! :) That’s how fast Cameron came into this world. In a completely natural birth, his arrival came and went in a matter of two hours! We did his session about a week later and Cameron was a ball of delicious goodness. You saw this gorgeous couple’s lovely maternity session a few weeks back, and this session was equally beautiful. I have many favorites in this one (including some of big brother Lucas – which I posted on Facebook), but all the black and white’s on here rank really high on my list. Alana and Brian, your gallery is on its way. Enjoy! ♥ Vanessa
