Ratafia-Perera Family

Let me stop for a second to tell you that I am seriously the luckiest photographer in the world. My clients are always so amazing to work with. That’s true of my session with the Ratafia-Perera family, too!

I met up with them in what I consider one of the best locations in Miami, because of the open space and the great lighting. The weather was great for photo-taking. It was a beautiful sunny day which made it perfect for my golden hour images. While the weather and location was fine, it was the Ratafia-Perera that made this shoot such a success.

As you can see from  the photos below, this family is not only photogenic, but also a close-knit group who clearly love spending time together. Benjamin, Clementina and Santiago are lucky to have each other. And both parents Chelo and Caro are outstanding parents, raising 3 amazing kids.

Speaking of parents, the children’s mother, Carolina did a really wonderful job choosing outfits  for our session.

Okay, moving on to what you’ve been waiting for. For your viewing pleasure, pictures of the Ratafia- Perera family!





Vazquez -Vera Family

Enrique and Carola  are officially expecting a little girl to join their family.  The little bundle of cuteness is set to arrive in just in time for the holidays. So far, Carola has had a somewhat easy pregnancy. Like most moms in their final trimester, she is counting down the days until Fatima is welcomed into our world!! But she is in good hands the father to be happens to be an excellent and very  respected Obstetrician-gyncologicts in Miami.


These kiddos are too adorable for words. I mean, how can you resist their grins? And the outfits? Perfection!

STYLE_4Even though  Carola expressed she was  somewhat doubtful about a maternity session, after all she had already been through it 3 times before, and this was her first maternity session. Can you believe that? And look at her- she honestly looked stunning!Their little baby is definitely a lucky one — look at all that love!! Cant wait to meet you Fatima.






See? I told you she was beautiful! Can’t wait to meet little (baby’s name) when (she/he) finally arrives!

A very special Superhero party

When your birthday is on October, you know you are going to have a costume theme party.  A couple of weeks ago, we celebrated my girl’s 6th birthday!!! And I was thrilled that she chose a superhero theme for her party. I loved every minute of planning this party with her. Like all little girls, she looked forward to her party all year round, and loves helping me decorating and planning everything, and like her mom, she can be quite the bossy lady!! It runs in the family!!

So the guests arrived and we started with a photo shoot on an improvised Photo Booth with some props and the girls just loved posing!! Each girl was given superhero cape as a party favor. Can you imagine how cute all the girls looked running around the party in their capes???!!! Plus, the girls came dressed up so this made them looked extra adorable!!!


Now to the food, Ximena is obsessed with donuts so we made some small donuts at home which to be quite honest, didn’t come out as cute, but they where ok. Then we toped them with pink frosting, which every girl loves. The colors where her favorite, pink and aqua-aquamarine like Ximena calls it, which is basically light green. I had to negotiate a little with the black, since she is a girl and wants everything with bright colors, so we came to an arrangement.


Now to the activities, which were also chosen by Ximena. She wanted three things in her party: a hula-hoop contest, a slime station, and her favorite thing, which is to draw. So we had a slime station where each girl was given their individual kit, then we had the hula-hoop contest and I printed out a huge backdrop of buildings where they painted throughout the party.






Hold on to that wish Ximena, and when you grow  up remember,  once upon a time you where a little girl with big dreams that promised you’d make real one day.

A big shout out to my amazing family; to my husband who is my biggest supporter in all of my crazy ideas, and to my wonderful parents, I couldn’t have done the party without you. Thank you for always being there, you are the best father and grandparents someone could ever ask!!!

Ximena is so lucky to have all of you in her life!!

If these faces looks familiar to you, it’s because I’ve photographed this family before.  They where actually  one of  clients when I started in this business,  so we go way back.

I was so excited when I got a call from Fernanda, saying she wanted to book a session this year.  I just love family traditions!! I was happy to know that they enjoyed me as much as I enjoyed them!


As expected, Mom and Dad did a wonderful job preparing for our session. And this year location couldn’t be have been better! Even there dog Roco joined in on the fun.

Because each year session with them goes  so well, I knew it wouldn’t be any different this time around. And I was right! Check it out for yourself:



Alonso Family

Oh how I just adore the family I’m blogging about today. I’m lucky enough to say I’ve been photographing the Alonso  family for 3 years now! I truly can’t believe how much the children have grown and changed since I first met them.

When Alexina called me to take their photos again, I don’t think I could have scheduled them fast enough. I immediately began counting down the days to our session! I couldn’t stop smiling the rest of the day.

And to top it all of they couldn’t t have chosen a better location, this  is one of the best kept secrets in Miami. And I will be forever grateful to them for showing this place to me!! It  has definitely become my new favorite location.

And as for the day of the shoot, I had a great time! They had a pretty great time, too.

Okay, enough text. Check out the wonderful Alonso family!



Barriero Family


I recently had a fantastic session with the Barriero  family. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I truly have the best clients ever! This family was no exception, either. This family was just so easy and fun to work with. The kids were amazing, they didn’t complain one second and they loved having their picture taken!! Even dad was asking for pictures by himself, with the kids and coming up with great ideas!! All the family members were in such a good mood , you could feel the good vibe!!

We met at Virgina Key. I love shooting at this location, because it just gives you so many options to work with, the mosquitos and the wind can be challenging, but after all it is Miami!! 

Now lets talk about the outfits, kudos to moms who make an excellent job picking up the outfits and making sure everybody looks amazing!!


Okay, enough text. Check out the wonderful Barriero family!




Waiting for Gabriel.

The photos I’m sharing with you today turned out so beautifully. As I was editing all the preview pictures for this blog post, I kept getting more and more excited with how they all turned out.

For this maternity session I met up  this amazing family at one of my favorite locations in Miami. As soon as we got there  I knew we were in for some awesome photos  and as you can see from the pictures below, Claudia  was the perfect soon-to-be mom. Any photographer would be lucky to photograph her. She was also the best sport, taking pictures, even in the hot humid weather of Miami, we had to take a break, but she decided to keep on going.  “No, she said its all worth it for the picture let’s finish it”

And how about  Juli, let me tell you she was the funniest girl I have ever photographed. She kept coming over to tell me that she was going to loose her first teeth. And then even took some great shots of her parents making them make silly faces. She was just to cute.c25blog claudiaC18c15

Overall, we had a really great time together and I know that Gabriel is going to be blessed to be part of such a wonderful family.
