The best prop for a family photographer? Relaxed parents! ~ {Miami Family Photographer} ~

There is no prop more useful in family photography than relaxed parents. And this family certainly has that going for it! This mom contacted me, and after we’d emailed each other back a forth a few times, I could tell she was an easy-going, laid back sort of person. This told me that shooting her family would be a smooth process. And that says a lot because her son is newly two – not exactly an age where a child loves to take direction! (I know you parents of two year olds out there are nodding enthusiastically in agreement!) But it turned out that this adorable little two year old was easy-peasy to shoot, and I really do think that it is because his parents had the perfect attitude going into the session. There was no scolding. No “why can’t you just stand right here?!” No “hurry up and smile, already!” Just a family hanging out at the park and letting their son do his thing. What a gift to me as their photographer that they knew what to do (and what not to do!) to get the images they wanted! Namely, to just ride the wave and let the child’s wonderful spirit shine. And shine, it did…Take a look!


How beautiful is this boy?


Look at those sparkling blue eyes!


The lovely family all together. (Yes, readers, this woman has a two year old. Want instant inspiration to get fit? Bookmark this page and refer to it often!)

Mom and son share a few moments together.

If there is one thing that I know a two-year old child loves, it’s having dad toss him high in the air!


A little wardrobe change – doesn’t he look adorable in this tie? Love!


W Family, I enjoyed every minute of working with you! I hope you enjoy these images for years and years.
