The Jassir Family • Miami Lifestyle family photographer

I had the pleasure of photographing this lovely family in their beautiful home a couple of weeks ago. They have the most comfortable backyard I’ve been to in a while. It feels so natural and lived in, you can just tell they spend a lot of time there and truly enjoy their time together. It was a relaxed afternoon and, while I was a little under the weather, the day could not have been more perfect. We may only have a handful of weeks left before the heat and rain begin again so take advantage of every perfect breezy day as much as possible. Summer will be here in no time. Enjoy! ♥ Vanessa

Thank You…

A year ago I went to visit my good friend and fantastic photographer Aris Wells in Greensboro, North Carolina. I was going through a very turbulent time in my life that necessitated a withdrawal from my surroundings. I called Aris and told her I needed to get away….without hesitation she extended me an invitation to spend Thanksgiving with her family. I got on a plane and headed her way. She picked me up at the airport and as soon as I saw her I started to cry. I learned many things that weekend, about myself, about relationships, about families, and about my passion. The weather was mostly cold and gloomy, almost a complete reflection of how I felt. Yet, on one day, the sun came out….and it shone like a beacon in the darkness. I took this image on that day…the sun shining through a leafless tree, which, to the naked eye, appears dry and lifeless, but whose heart was still beating just waiting for Spring in order to blossom again….and Spring always comes after a fall.

Thank you ~ friends and clients ~ for continuously supporting me, cheering me on, and showing me immense patience and love throughout this year…I’m eternally grateful and honored. Thank you “mi amiga”, for taking me in when I most needed it, you may never know how much that small gesture impacted my life. Thank you God, for never leaving me, for always guiding me even when I didn’t want to listen and for always teaching me…thank you.

Sending you much love this day and always…. ♥ Vanessa

Thank You
