Alana & Brian – Expecting • Miami Pregnancy Photographer

Not 10 days ago did I photograph this gorgeous happy couple….and, last I checked today, Alana is probably giving birth as I post this! Brian contacted me trying to decide on whether they should do a maternity shoot or not, specially given that they were due in about 3 weeks. I’m so glad they went for it and we were able to arrange everything in such short notice. It was the most perfect Sunday afternoon, at the most adorable quaint location, with incredibly sweet light…couldn’t have asked for more. We wrapped up the shoot at their apartment with an incredible view, more scrumptious light, and Lucas, their first “baby” – a cutie greyhound rescue that simply melted me. The last one of Alana standing in the balcony is my favorite. Can’t wait to photograph the little guy next week. In the mean time, enjoy! ♥ Vanessa

Cheryl - I agree with you on the favorite, the last one of Alana on the balcony. I’m also partial to the one of Brian and Alana together, eyes closed, hands on the baby and of course, the one of Brian with horns. ;-)September 26, 2012 – 7:06 pm

Vanessa - Thanks Marcus!September 26, 2012 – 9:48 pm

Janis Johnson - All the photos are very beautiful. I wish I could have had photos like this done when I was pregnant. The ones of Alana, especially the one of her looking off into the distance, “just beautiful”. She can show that to her son in the future and tell him how she was thinking of his arrival. I also like the photo of her and Brian in black and white, so well done.September 26, 2012 – 10:51 pm

Lulu - I absolutely love these pictures! Alana should be a model for both pregnancy and non-pregnancy shots! Amazing job too, by the photographer! Brian should model too! What a beautiful family! Lucas too!September 26, 2012 – 11:19 pm

Alana - Thank you so much, everyone! We had a really good time spending the afternoon with Vanessa, who is willing to do anything (even lay down on Espanola Way) to get ‘the shot!’ She made us feel comfortable and we are thrilled with the result!September 27, 2012 – 12:51 pm

David Robinson - Wow! Some stunning shots of some beautiful people. Well done.September 27, 2012 – 1:20 pm

Constantine’s World • Miami children photographer

Typically, most shoots deal with Moms trying to get their kids into nice outfits and the kids whining about it. When I arrived for  Constantine’s shoot I noticed he was really put together – sporting a very stylish outfit with dinner jacket and all. To my surprise, Mom said that it was all his doing. She said that he dressed himself, that he loves wearing his jacket, and that he doesn’t feel like he’s well dressed unless he has a jacket on (won’t take it off no matter how hot it gets). I knew I was in for a treat! Once the session started it was clear that that was no joke. Constantine knew instinctively how to pose, stand, look at the camera and just be at ease in the spotlight. He showed me his black Spider-Man costume and insisted on doing photos with it, so we did. And I’m SO glad we did. LOVE the Spidey shots. By the end, he had pulled out a full-size Spider-Man costume for me to wear. He is the awesomest 4 year old ever! ;) Enjoy! ♥ Vanessa

It’s clear…sort of • Miami Baby photographer

In typical summer fashion, there were about four reschedules due to bad weather before I got to photograph little Eduardo. Fortunately Mom is a really easy-going sweet lady and had no problems with that. On this day it was finally clear, well, sort of…clear enough and pretty enough for beautiful soft pictures. Eduardo’s Dad is Brazilian which of course means there had to be photos with their soccer uniform! He looked soooo cute. We did a couple more outfit changes, went to the beach and had a grand ole time eating some sand and hanging out butt nekkid in the water…well, he did at least. ;) Here are some favorites. LOVE his eyes…so expressive. Enjoy!  ♥ Vanessa

Baby Kai • Newborn Baby Photographer Miami

Beautiful baby Kai has arrived! Big brother Zayden is not too thrilled about it, but will surely warm up to the idea – in a couple of years maybe. :) You might remember him (a.k.a. my boyfriend) from Mom’s pregnancy shoot. It was no different this time around. While I photographed Kai he kept holding my hand and even cried when I went home. Such a cutie. While Dad was nervous and embarrassed that Kai was not falling asleep, he was an absolute angel. Love these images. Enjoy!  ♥ Vanessa

Finally Valeria • Photographer Quinces Miami

Since meeting Valeria when she was only thirteen, we’ve been talking about doing a photo session for her. She went through braces, growth spurts and finally her fifteens arrived. We finalized the outfits the day before the shoot and planned a straight forward classic shoot. Her fabulous aunt, who is gifting her the session, helped her style the shoot, great job right?! Everything flowed beautifully including the gorgeous day. They’re waiting anxiously for her photos so I’ll get to it. Great job Valeria, you’re stunning!  Enjoy!  ♥ Vanessa
