Bright Smile – First Birthday Portraits in South Florida

Have you ever seen a more shining happy little boy? Well this little guy had everything to smile about, he was turning 1 and he was all smiles for the camera. Best part of the session was when it was time for him to smash up his cake. What a mess but I might say it is always entertaining to see these beautiful babies enjoy their cake to pieces, literally.

sibling bliss – Children Photography, Miami, Florida

Happy Monday!!!! So this post is a little late for “Sibling Day” but I wanted to show off these three little cuties. As a mother of three children myself, I know first hand the energy required to keep up with my own little bunch (although they are not so little anymore). So needless to say, I am always ready. And despite that, this beautiful trio made my job almost effortless. Can you say “SUPERSTARS” ? ♥♥♥ TTFN   ~R

moments like this – beautiful child photography Davie FL

I am so grateful for moments like this. I am easily inspired by simplest things in life; childhood, a giggle, beauty, beautiful days, the afternoon breeze etc. What inspires me the most is a child’s honesty because they are so pure and so REAL!!!  These two amazing little girls INSPIRED me. What a gift!! I am truly grateful for the trust I am given time and time again to do what I love the most. ♥♥♥ “A child’s attitude toward everything is an artist’s attitude.” ~ Willa Cather TTFN   ~R
