Miami Newborn Photographer – Baby Photography Miami

Pretty in pink will be what this beautiful family will have in store with not one but two precious princesses. I was excited to hear about her arrival and extremely curious to know if she was going to be bigger then her older sister who weighed a little over ten pounds when she was born. Little Miss L may not have weighed ten pounds but she is perfect in every single way, and quite squeezable I might add. ♥ “Grace was in all her steps. Heaven in her eye.

Sunrise Miami Beach Photography

Sunrise Miami Beach photography sessions are the best. Early bird gets the worm they say. But no worries if you haven’t booked your holiday session yet there is still time. This beautiful family took me up on a sunrise beach session, LOVE IT!! It started off with a little rain before sunrise but it cleared up just in time. And these two little beauties were ready to go.

Best Miami Maternity Photographer

Best Miami Maternity Photographer – Having more to love is a wonderful thing, isn’t it? I think so. Over the years I have enjoyed watching so many of my client’s families grow from being a family of two to a family of three, three to a family of four and so on. My gosh, I have even seen families of five become families of six. It is a such a beautiful thing to see and most importantly it is a true blessing to be able to photograph such a wonderful memory for them to cherish for years to come. With that said here is a beautiful maternity session of one of those growing families I speak of. I can remember photographing their first baby like it was only yesterday. ♥ “Where there is love there is life.” MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHY MIAMI Ritz’ maternity photography Miami is fresh and modern yet timeless.

Miami Family beach photo session

Peek-a-boo little fella… The long weekend has come and gone and here we are again it’s FRIDAY. I am sure many of you are ready to enjoy another weekend in sunny South Florida. Thought I’d a few minutes before heading out for another session to finally show off this little handsome fellow. We had a great session documenting his 2nd birthday at Matheson Hammocks in Coral Gables. Look at that swag!!! Love it! ♥   TTFN ~R   Ritz Rivera Childhood Photography is a South Florida maternity photographer, newborn photographer, baby photographer, children and teen photographer and Miami’s Family Photographer.   When seeking a professional child photographer, the person needs to be patient and calm.

Miami Beach Mini Photo Session

Check out this lovely Miami Beach mini photo session. I hope you all had a wonderful Easter Sunday with your loved ones. It was definitely a gorgeous day in Miami. Just stopping in to share a lovely Mother & son session from a few months ago. I was reminded of this session just a few days ago while I was at Matheson Hammocks photographing a family on the beach. I love seeing the sailboats cruising through the bay especially when it is close to sunset. I have a love for ANYTHING to do with the ocean. So there is no doubt beach sessions are always fun for me. Of course, I’ve worked with duo many times before, always a pleasure. I couldn’t believe what a big difference a year had made since I saw this little guy. He no longer looks like a busy little toddler, he is a growing handsome boy. He reminded me so much of my son at this age. ♥ “Blessed is the boy who begins life with a mom in his corner.” ~ Julie Sanders TTFN   ~R

Miami Lifestyle Newborn Photography

“Light up the darkness”…. just one of my many favorite Bob Marley quotes. This quote came to mind as I prepared the images for this post. I guess it is because of the beautiful light that seeped into this clients home despite the gloomy skies outside. Just as I arrived it started to rain naturally it became dark inside my clients home. So the question was do we reschedule the session or just shoot? I usually reschedule photo shoots if it is a dark gloomy day and I am unable to get enough natural light. So of course I was so happy to learn that mom and dad were totally feeling the dim lighting. I was too was feeling the dim lighting because it is not often that I get to shoot in low light unless it is a personal project. The cherry on top was that this little princess was a wonderful model, no complaints not even when we placed her one of dad’s drums. I LOVE LOVE LOVE how this session turned out! ♥ “Every moment of light and dark is a miracle”  ~Walt Whitman TTFN   ~R

Matheson Hammocks Beach Photo Shoot

Child Photography Miami – Family Photographer Miami FloridaIt’s time for “happy smiley goodness”!!! Yes, my profession is a lot of fun and it makes me very happy to do what I am passionate about. Of course, it has its ups and downs like any other profession. But come on, when you are working with such awesome, amazing, SPECTACULAR cuteness, how can one possibly complain about that? I know I can’t, not even for a second. Talk about a perfect scenario for a photo shoot; a beautiful Miami day, the beach and an awesome family to photograph. And the boys, there were THREE!! These handsome little guys put a huge smile on my face. Too much cuteness for one afternoon. Kids will be kids and when you allow them space and time to do what comes naturally you are sure to capture beautiful expressions. These boys were such a pleasure to work with, kudos to Mom and dad for raising such fine boys. ♥ “Promise me you’ll always remember: You’re braver than you believe and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.”― A.A.

Stylish Miami Family Photo Session

Chic Holiday!!! Who doesn’t love a Chic Holiday?? I surely do. I had so many great holiday sessions but simply did not have enough time to post over the holidays. It was a crazy busy time for me.

Check out her newborn photo shoot HERE. She is just darling. We certainly had fun during this session. In fact, we did two mini sessions on two different days. Talk about mixing it up.
