The search for miniature tigers… ~{Miami Shores Family Photographer}~

Anyone out there with a two-year-old knows that they have their own ideas about precisely what they want to do and how. But when it comes to working with children, I think recognizing their voice and helping them feel like their opinions matter is what it’s all about. Because if they like what we’re doing, then, chances are, I’m going to like the images, too. Which is precisely what happened during this shoot. I let my little friend here tell me what he wanted to do, and I just gently guided him along the way. We told silly jokes to one another, played peek-a-boo, and went on a few fun “adventures,” including a wild animal search – have you ever found an invisible miniature tiger hiding in tall grass? Well this little boy has, and I have the enormous smiles to prove it!  Let me not ignore mom and dad, who arrived looking uh-maaaaazing – are Miamians the most beautiful people in the world, or what?! Those two weren’t only looking great, but they had no problem whatsoever getting comfortable in front of the camera and really letting their love for their son, their family and each other come through. Take a look and see…


He had so many wonderful expressions and smiles for me!

This was right around the time we found that invisible, miniature tiger. Can you see it, too?…

Dad joins in the fun!

But mom isn’t far away!

Yeeeah. This is how we make ’em in Miami – ridiculously gorgeous. Dad looks like a pro athlete-turned-model, and the mom looks like she stepped out of a magazine. That dress, those legs! I couldn’t dream-up a more beautiful couple if I tried. And please take note – she lifted her toddler up over her head repeatedly while wearing those amazing shoes? She pretty much rocks.

So now you can see where my little friend here gets his good looks.

We changed locations (and wardrobe!) to get some pretty shots amid Miami’s lush greens.

So much love…

G Family – I can’t tell you how much fun I had photographing you and spending time with your incredible boy. It was a joy for me. A complete and total joy. <3

My next blog post will either be a crazy-cute and chub-tas-tic newborn,  or another love, love, lovely family…I just can’t decide. Stay tuned!
