Miami Baby Photo Session – Baby Photographer

Beautiful baby, you are perfect. There are quite a few milestones babies and children must get through in life; each one just as important as the last. One of my favorite milestones to photograph is the half-year mark. I just love the yummy baby fat rolls, the sucking on the toes, the balancing act of trying to sit up, I can go on and on.

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. This session is just awesome, of course I MUST post it. This little princess is growing so fast. She was just a newborn the other day. I know, I know times flies when you are having fun. 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. It was totally worth it, these kiddos knocked it out of the park, pardon the pun, ha-ha. Let’s see if you can spot the two little posers. Those two cuties were not going to be left out of this photo shoot; they are professionals at getting their photos done, I LOVE IT!!! ♥  “Fashions fade, style is eternal.” ~Yves Saint Laurent TTFN   ~R

smile baby – Newborn Photography, Miami, Florida

This family certainly has something to smile about, a house full of little girls, THREE to be exact!!! Little Miss “Z” is just as beautiful as her older sisters, whom in my mind were also just born YESTERDAY! Time escapes me so quickly. I think I spent the entire session with a smile on my face or in a constant giggle because big sister could not get enough of her baby sister. I can hear her little voice in my head saying “Ohhh, she is sooo cute!”.  Such a girl thing, adorable. ♥♥♥ TTFN     ~R RITZ RIVERA CHILDHOOD PHOTOGRAPHY LOCATED IN MIAMI IS A PHOTOGRAPHER SPECIALIZING IN MATERNITY & NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHY INCLUDING BABY, FAMILY, CHILDREN AND LIFESTYLE PHOTOGRAPHY Miami, Florida | Maternity, Newborn, Baby & Family Photographer | Contact | Phone 305-321-5465 © Ritz Rivera Childhood Photography   Ritz Rivera Childhood Photography is a South Florida maternity photographer, newborn photographer, baby photographer, children and teen photographer and Miami’s Family Photographer.

busy little bee

Wish I can get to this blog more often. I have been meaning to share some yummy images from one of my favorite big sister’s. I showcased her new baby sister in my previous post but its time for lovely little miss “A’. I cannot believe I haven’t shared these before. I have been photographing her since she was a tiny newborn with many sessions in between. A true little sweetheart! ♥ TTFN   ~R Ritz Rivera Childhood Photography | Maternity | Babies | Children | Teens | Family

a splash of fun

Time to show off another cutie. This little guy was ready for just about anything as you will see. And he is just as dreamy as his big brother whom happen to be my very first newborn client….time flies. Can’t wait till our next session to see what how  much he’s grown. ♥ TTFN   ~R Ritz Rivera Childhood Photography | Maternity | Babies | Children | Teens | Family

sweet little boy

As you can imagine, I have worked with many little newborns but I must say I still gush everytime as if I haven’t seen a baby in forever. I just love the itty bitty babies. This little boy is another lovely example of why I love babies so very much, he was just so sweet and well very sleepy. TTFN     ~R Ritz Rivera Childhood Photography | Maternity | Babies | Children | Teens | Family

divine light

It’s a tough decision choosing which session I am going to post next, I want to share them all of course, only time escapes me. This beautiful family came to mind today as I was reminded how the light from the setting sun can be so heavenly; so I knew this would be the session I would share today.  We could not have asked for a more beautiful day. TTFN   ~R Ritz Rivera Childhood Photography | Maternity | Babies | Children | Teens | Family

princesses & giggles

This session felt way more like a playdate then an actual photoshoot, too much fun and quite a few giggles. Little Miss S is just the sweetest, she made me imaginary pizza and it was so very yummy. And of course Litttle Miss G totally had her time in the spotlight, after a little nap she was smiling and ready to GO. I love watching my little newborns grow!! TTFN    ~R Ritz Rivera Childhood Photography | Maternity | Babies | Children | Teens | Family

watching them grow

I am so fortunate to witness so many of my newborns grow, it is  one of the benefits of this job of mine. This little princess is a wonderful example. She is just a beautiful doll and I cannot want to see how much she has grown at our next session. You can ask any photographer that does what I do and I am 100%  sure they will agree with me when I say ” I love what I do”!!!! Okay, is this family beautiful or what???? I think so, I am sure you will all agree. TTFN  ~R Ritz Rivera Childhood Photography | Maternity | Babies | Children | Teens | Family

all smiles

Love showing up to a session and meeting a great family even moreso when you have such a beautiful property to shoot on. Another visiting family all the way from Ohio. This little cutie had just the right energy for our session, she was a true joy and full of smiles. TTFN   ~R Ritz Rivera Childhood Photography – Maternity | Babies | Children | Teens

from a far

I love my local clients but I am also very fortunate to meet many out of towners vacationing here in the beautiful MIA. This lovely family was visiting from Trinidad which I am sure is just as beautiful and as tropical as Miami. It was a true pleasure meeting them all… TTFN   ~R
