My own…sorta! ~{Miami Family Photography}~

You regular readers already know what my three daughters look like. And yeah – these girls are not them! But they are still mine… sorta! These are my gorgeous nieces and their parents, my sister and her husband. You guys can do the math on how much fun my three girls have with their three girl cousins when we all get together. Let’s just say that the high-pitched giggles and squealing reaches the rafters. But I wouldn’t have it any other way! My nieces are little treasures to me and I am so grateful to have them in our lives. Family – that’s what it is all about! And, being that we are family, I simply MUST shoot their holiday card portraits each year – even if it means squeezing them in between my regular clients at this hectic time of year. But it’s all good – I love documenting how the girls grow, and it also gives my sister and her husband a good excuse to drive down to Miami and spend the weekend with us – it’s a win-win!

And now, without further ado, meet my people – aren’t they beautiful?!


This is one of the shots they chose for their holiday card this year – doesn’t everyone look so happy? I ♥ them so much!


Ahhh, my oldest niece. She is so beautiful, and sensitive and sweet. She’s also an accomplished violinist and ballet dancer – such a talented kid!


My middle niece is smart as can be and has a real sense of fashion. This adorable pixie haircut she’s sporting was totally her idea and it suits her so well! On any given day you can find her changing clothes three different times and coordinating each outfit with the *perfect* pair of shoes.


The youngest girl is the cutest little firecracker you’ll ever meet. She may be the tiniest of her sisters, but that word could NEVER be used to describe her huge personality. She loves to perform and will regularly treat you to a song-and-dance “show.” She has the most fantastic hair – which she absolutely will not, Not, NOT allow you to insert a barrette or hair bow into. Sister-friend needs to be FREE, y’all – no hair bows gonna hold her back!

I’ll end with a little collage of everyone – including a sweet shot of my gorgeous sister and her handsome husband together. I only wish I had a photo like this of me and my husband!  I hope you enjoyed meeting my people – they are so very special to me. ♥

Good heavens. I think I have said it before about your family but it extends through the whole family apparently……it should be illegal to have so much beauty in one family!! I can totally see this is your sister:) You are both so beautiful! And her girls are just adorable! Love these and your sis is one lucky lady to have such an amazing photographer for a sister:)
