Wynwood Lifestyle Family Photographer | Hartley's Bat Mitzvah Pre Shoot

This young lady will be celebrating her Bat Mitzvah this fall, and we got together this evening to celebrate with some mitzvah portraits in the bright, colorful, and fun area of Wynwood in Miami, which was the perfect complement to her vibrant personality. We were supposed to shoot at the beach, but it’s been so windy, we decided to move our session inland, and I’m so glad we did, because Hartley and her family totally rocked their lively session and embraced the wind.

Her theme is going to be watercolors. We found several walls to match, and her family created their own painting at the end by throwing paint-filled water balloons at a canvas full of push pins! I can’t wait to continue celebrating with you!

Wynwood Lifestyle Family Photo Session | Susan, Brett, Riley, & Coby

This session from last fall was special. When a family tells me they want to dress up and take photos in an urban setting, my answer is always, “yes please!” We started shooting just before dark, so by the time their outfit change was complete, the sun had set, and we continued shooting into the night for a unique after dark effect! This family brought lots of love and fun, and I admired how well these siblings got along! I hope they always love each other this much! And if they do fight, as most brothers and sisters do, I hope they will look fondly on these moments, frozen in time.

I’m scheduling sessions for this fall. October weekends are almost full, but if you’re looking for a September or November session, click the contact button to find out Erica’s availability to freeze time for your family!

Danny's Mitzvah Pre Shoot | Wynwood Miami Photo Shoot

This session was special. This family was such a joy to photograph. They were completely relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera, and it shows! And once mom shared a video of Danny doing some aerial Tae Kwan Do earlier this weekend, we of course had to incorporate lots of action shot into the rest of our photo session. I even made a gif of him doing an awesome cartwheel, keep scrolling! I am so looking forward to capturing his mitzvah later this fall!

Miami Wynwood Photographer | Adam's Mitzvah Pre-Shoot

Adam became a Bar Mitzvah and was called to and read from the Torah this morning during a beautiful weekday service. The sunlight streaming in provided gorgeous lighting to compliment the bright spirit of this boy and his family. We met at the Wynwood Walls Art District in Miami a few months back to capture an informal portrait session, which mom used for his sign in book, montage, and a large print to greet and welcome his guests this morning. Congrats Adam and family! I can’t wait to edit and share the images from today, but until then, I hope you continue to enjoy these!
