Miami Quinceanera Photographer – Sweet 15 Photography

As a Miami quinceanera photographer, I love nothing more than creating beautiful sweet fifteen images for my clients. Most little girls dream with a princess theme party when they grow up. Sweet fifteen’s, sweet sixteen’s, quinceanera or however you wish to call it, it’s a wonderful celebration that makes the transition from being a little girl to being a young woman official. Of course with that comes planning the quinceanera photo shoot which in its own right is just as important if not MORE important than the actual party/celebration. Okay maybe I took it too far but what I have learned over the years is that the idea of the “celebration” has changed. Nowadays it is quite normal for the traditional quinceanera celebration to be replaced with a family vacation, a popular one being a family and friends getaway on a cruise ship. But one thing is for certain the tradition of getting your quinceanera photos done still stands the test of time. Your special moments, your joy, your laughter are to be remembered through your photographs for many years and your generations to come. We share the same goals and would love to be a part of your joy […]

Outdoor Maternity Photography in Miami

Outdoor maternity photography sessions are gorgeous at sunrise and at sunset. Is it just me, or are these just the most beautiful pregnancy photos you have seen?! It isn’t hard to create such gorgeous pictures when your subject is as gorgeous as this mom-to-be right here. What makes outdoor photography sessions so special is the glow these expecting moms get to show off in the excitement of waiting on the arrival of their little ones. How precious is it to be able to witness and document the love you can feel in these photos between these moms and their babies? There is nothing quite like the feeling knowing you will be meeting your whole world in a short matter of time- and that’s what makes these photos so sweet. To add to the beauty of maternity shoots, I utilize the beautiful South Florida sunshine we get here year-round, and it emphasizes mama’s glow so much more. So don’t be afraid to take your maternity pictures in Miami outside. “Giving birth and being born brings us into the essence of creation, where the human spirit is courageous and bold and the body, a miracle of wisdom.” ~ Harriette Hartigan Outdoor Maternity Photography Miami […]
