Sugar & Spice • children photography miami

It was 2008 the first time I photographed this fun family. At the time, big sister Naomi had the family all to herself. We made a nice coffee-table book of that session through which little sister Sloan has flipped many times prompting her to ask where was her book. So, to even things out, here’s Sloan’s session – it’s going to be a beautiful book! This sweet and spicy ballerina experienced the full range of emotions in this shoot. My favorite is the one of her getting some consoling love from Daddy after she fell and scraped her knee. And of course, I love the family one too, just beautiful. Enjoy!  ♥ Vanessa

SarahInParis - Oh my what a little cutie!! Love that first photo Vanessa. The colours are just divine. So lovely to pop back to your blog and be wowed my friend!! Gorgeous family and gorgeous photos.August 17, 2012 – 3:31 am

Gemma the Gem! • Kids photographer Miami

This little gem of a girl is Gemma. She came on vacation with her family all the way from Texas. Mom had the brilliant idea of doing a photo session while here and I can’t tell you what a happy shoot this was. Looking through the images I kept smiling at my screen seeing all her different expressions, which reminded of me of something I couldn’t quite place. I kept thinking, “seriously she needs to be animated”, and, suddenly, I realized she reminded me of the title character in the animated film Ponyo from the master filmaker animator/director Hayao Miyasaki who also wrote/directed Spirited Away winner of the Academy Award for best animated movie in 2002. The last two images on this post are straight out of an animation, just priceless. Gemma was all spunk and talked up a storm, even though only about 5 words were recognizable. Here are a handful of my favorites. Enjoy! Vanessa

Smiles Galore! • Quince Photographer Miami

It is nearly impossible for Alexa not to smile. And I don’t mean just just smile, but SMILE! A big, bright, light-up-a-room kind of smile. That’s why I love the last photo on this post. It was near the end of the shoot so she was a little tired, and it is just then where you can see her big dark eyes – soulful and sweet. It was a great shoot; hot, muggy and buggy, but spectacular. Beautiful job Lexi, Mr. Bieber would be nuts to pass you up! ;) Enjoy!  ♥ Vanessa

It’s a rare thing during the summer months to have the first try at a location session go without a weather hiccup.

He simply adores her and she him. Can’t wait to meet baby boy when he arrives in September. Here are a few favorites. Leave them some blog love won’t ya? Enjoy!  ♥ Vanessa

Princess Sara • Miami Baby Photographer

The name Sara means princess and this little princess was all about Daddy…and Daddy was all about her. This first image is one of my favorites with the third one down being a close second. Such tenderness. There was a lot of joking, laughing, feeding and, lastly, some sleeping from Sara – giving me some photo sweetness. There are a few with Mommy too, but I’m saving those for her gallery. In the meantime…Enjoy! ♥ Vanessa
