We all know that a Mom to be is the star of the show when it comes to a maternity session, but there’s no denying the sweetness of having the entire family in the frame, too. I love capturing the raw candid moments between parents and siblings, and pressing pause on a moment in time that would otherwise go by so quickly.


My shoot with Andy and the rest of her family – including Dad, and their 2 children, Allegra and Felix – offered lots of those moments. The session took place a couple weeks ago at  Key Biscayne , and it was a non-stop shutter clicking extravaganza! The whole family had such good energy and you can totally see their love for each other. I mean look at the parents look at each other, both of them are radiant.

Specially kudos to Dad, who despite the hot weather didn’t complain once, and even took the kids away so I could focus on the amazing mom to be.


First lets talk about the girls, when I asked Andy what they liked to do as a family. She answered we love to hear music and dance, so of course I brought my portable speakers and it was a hit!!! Just look at mom and daughter having a blast with the music. Allegra’s name comes with her personality she is truly the must cheerful girl I have known, once you meet her you can’t stop smilling.


And what can I say about Felix, I mean those eyes and that playful smile is just too much. You can defiantly see that he is the sweetest boy and brings on so much joy into this family life.


ok now what you have all been waiting for.  I  really can’t get enough of how glowing Andy looked in these shots! And how about these images below? Stunning!


My shoot with Andy and the rest of the family offered moments they will always remember. Today the are a family of four, but soon they will become complete with their new addition.
