{Image of the Week} My Two Front Teeth

Recently, a client mentioned that they want pictures done of their kids before they start losing their teeth. At first, I agreed. Of course, you want them to have all their teeth in the pictures. Aesthetically, it looks perfect. Hair is in place, clothes are clean, and all their teeth are where they are supposed to be. But, then I started to think… When my kids lost their teeth, they were so proud. It’s almost a coming of age moment! A war scar. They lost their first tooth! That means the Tooth Fairy will be visiting them that night. I remember their excitement and how anxious they were to look under their pillow to see what the mystical winged lady brought for them. How important is that for them! I guess, my mind has changed. How can you NOT document that momentous moment? Years later, when they look back and see those pictures, they will remember… It was important to them, so it was important to you. There is really no perfect time to photograph your family, there is only right now.

copyright PS Photography | www.PSphotography.net | Miami Children Photography Victoria is turning two. It seems crazy, because we have had the pleasure of documenting her since she was nice and warm in mommy’s belly. And, now see her celebrating her second birthday leaves us speechless! We truly love our clients, and Victoria is no exception. So, when we heard she loves the movie Frozen so much that it is the theme of her party, we needed to include Anna and Elsa in her shoot. And, what little girl doesn’t love a tea party? And, this secret garden was a perfect location to host all her stuffed friends to a spot of tea. Happy Birthday, Victoria.

{Bader Family} Holiday Session | Miami Family Photography

copyright PS Photography | www.PSphotography.net The coolest kids on the block are definitely part of this family! So this idea of props and crazy silly faces were inspired by me taking a peek of Bre’s Facebook page. The first picture I see on her facebook page is Mason cross eyed with her tongue out (cutest picture ever by the way). So I pitched the idea to Bre, and her response was “that idea is so us”. So we had the idea, I found the props and we got some super silly photos. When I designed their holiday card, I thought to myself, “This client is totally going to veto the picture I chose for the front of the card.” It was the goofiest photo of the five of them, and even a few faces were partially hidden by some wackiness. Well I was wrong! Bre loved it and was all for it! I decided then this was the coolest families I know. And let me add, they definitely had one of the coolest card of 2013!

{Esquivel Girls} Miami Holiday Session

Holidays are here! Our favorite but most busiest time of year! I’m very excited to show off this session of the Esquivel girls. Their mom styled the shoot and I showed up with a smile on my face. The girls’ outfits were trendy and different! Just shows that a little effort can go a long way. It’s easy to play it safe, but this family chose a different direction in outfit choices and I think it paid off!

Happy Birthday Erin! I was so smitten with Erin this time around. I have done a few shoots this last year of her but she is now one and she is yummier than ever! The shoot was not only celebrating Erin turning the big one, but also Erin will be a big sister soon! We did this shoot at a neighborhood park close to their so I met them at their house so that we can leave together to the park. Well lucky for me when I got there they were running behind schedule so I got to feed Erin her bottle and read a few books with her, oh sweetness. She is just the sweetest baby, she wanted me to hold her and play with her the whole time. I even helped dress her. My boys are 2 and 5 already so I found myself missing this stage, oh how time flies. Needless to say I had a great time spending time with this family. We ended the session with a little fun. I had this idea of putting Erin in a tin tub with bubbles, and a rubber ducky. I am so happy that Katie went with the idea and helped put it all together because Erin full of bubbles is just way to much to even handle, take a look for yourself. This is the first time trying out this bubble bath concept but I am thinking it may be a request from clients after they take a peek of these pictures. Note to self remember to bring a thermos of hot water to add to the bath, poor Erin was freezing. (more…)

A rainy, ugly day in Miami did not stop this mom from completing her mission! Geraldine had no intentions of postponing a family shoot any longer. She has been longing to take professional photographs of her family of four for the longest and made it a priority. No rain, or lack of outfits would get in the way.
Before arriving to the shoot, I already made up my mind that I liked her, LOL. As I approached the house, I found myself in a seriously funny comedic movie where the mom is literally juggling her kids and 50 other things. I quickly get out of my car and help her with the 10 bags in her hands. She then is putting shoes on Connor and holding baby Kyle all at the same time (supermom for real). And of course, as this is all happening the rain starts gushing and JP’s lego tower decides to fall over and crumble on the sidewalk, which is followed by JP’s wails. Well, we all ran into the house and I looked at Geraldine and she just has a smile and starts laughing….I knew I was right, totally like this woman. What Geraldine and I planned was to do a lifestyle shoot. PS’s fresh and raw approach to lifestyle shoots have quickly become popular. It’s all about real life, real moments, creating memories; no fussiness no props… just everything that makes your family a family. So what began with a few shots of baby Kyle on the bed evolved into a tickle fight then jumping on the bed. As you can imagine, everyone including mom and dad had a blast- having fun and creating memories with the ones that are most important to them. I can picture this family looking through these photographs 15 years from now and sharing laughs and tears reminiscing on this day… and isn’t that what photography is all about?copyright PS Photograph | www.PSphotography.net

These images just make me smile. Not only are they amazing and capture the fun relationship of this family, but because of how special this family is to us. We have been photographing Kori + Darrell and their family for years now! So, to us they are more like friends than clients. And, it always is so nice when it’s time for a photo shoot, because I get to catch up with what’s going on in the life of the Searcys.

Parker’s session was so much fun. His personality is amazing, he smiled the entire time, such a happy baby. It could be that he sees me so often! This is Parker’s 3rd session (not including the baby bump session where he technically was there). For this shoot, I wanted to incorporate a barn like feel, and found the perfect spot! And, just in time, because they started construction on that street right after the shoot. Parker played the perfect farm boy with his adorable suspenders and contagious laugh…  Can’t wait for the next one!

Let’s just say that at this shoot, I had my work cut out for me!  For starters, this was the family’s first family shoot ever.  Talk about pressure!  I knew I would have to pull out some tricks from my magic hat.  Oh and let me not forget to mention that the shoot had to be on a particular Friday at 5:30pm because the family was only here for 24 hours before they left back to their home in New York.  So the date was set, time set, outfits picked, location chosen, and of course it rains…. all day- Welcome to Miami!  So plan B it was…the train museum.  I love it when the back up plan works out better than the original plan!  Two boys at a train station- what could be better!  We were able to do get some ridiculously cute photographs of the family!  The boys had a blast as you can plainly see!copyright PS Photography | www.PSphotography.net copyright PS Photography | www.PSphotography.net copyright PS Photography | www.PSphotography.net copyright PS Photography | www.PSphotography.net copyright PS Photography | www.PSphotography.net copyright PS Photography | www.PSphotography.net copyright PS Photography | www.PSphotography.net copyright PS Photography | www.PSphotography.net copyright PS Photography | www.PSphotography.net
