Lena & Jimmy – Sunrise Maternity Session

Sunrise sessions are fast becoming my favorite time of day to photograph maternity portraits. With Miami summers bearing down on us with flash rainstorms and high humidity, dawn is the best way to escape from the heat and still get that beautiful beach portrait. Yes, it’s early, but the beaches are empty and the calmness of the day starting creates the perfect setting for taking a step back to enjoy this time in your family’s history. Lena was my first friend when I moved to Miami. We bonded on a bus ride to the Orange Bowl, the first football game of the year (and my first as Miami Hurricane). Ten years later, Lena and her hubby Jimmy are expecting their first baby! Lena & Jimmy were married on the beach at The Atlantic Hotel in Ft. Lauderdale four years ago, so it was the only logical destination to capture this next chapter.
