Memories of her father…~{Miami Family Photographers}~

I’m sure you remember the beautiful Nathalie Cadet James from my blog entry almost one year ago to the day titled “What do you get the man who has everything?” That previous shoot did not include Nathalie’s husband because it was a surprise photo session she arranged in order to gift him some lovely canvas prints of her and her girls for his birthday. But here he finally is: the man who has everything – a wonderful wife and two gorgeous daughters who love him like crazy! The family came back to me again this year for a shoot and the pictures are nothing short of amazing. They were styled perfectly, of course. This came as no surprise since style and design is part of Nathalie’s job as head of Luxe Fete Event Planning & Design , one of Miami’s premiere event planning companies.

But the family brought more than just good looks and fresh Miami styling to their shoot. They also brought their love and adoration for one another – which I think shines through these images like a ray of golden light. This family just “gets it.” They know what life is all about : Family. Love. Each other. It was my privilege to capture all of that for them. Do you want to see it? Well scroll, my friend, scroll on down…

When Nathalie saw this photo, she paid me one of the most amazing compliments I’ve ever been given by any client. You see, Nathalie lost her dear father not long ago. And when she saw this photo at her proofing session, she gasped and said “It’s like I can see my dad there on the beach with us!” I almost cried, you guys. It was kind of major. ♥


Girlies on the loose!

I know you want to see these beautiful children up close. How cute are they?!

This child – she just laughed, and laughed, and laughed.


Little sis got a kick out of her older sister pulling silly faces behind me.


You know what I love about this next set of images? Everything! Seriously, everything – the dad with his girls, their huge, giggly smiles. It’s all just totally incredible. I feel like I can still hear the kids laughing…


But how about mom and dad alone? I think they are among the most beautiful people in the world both inside and out. Seeing them in the glow of this warm, sunset light was like *sigh*


Kisses! No post from me is complete without them!


The gorgeous mama with her girls!


So there you have it – your daily dose of something extraordinarily lovely. I hope you enjoyed these images. If so, go ahead and tell me about it in the comments section below – I love to hear from you!
