I’ve known Manny for several years now. Last year he married a beautiful & wonderful woman named Erin, and their first child, James, is due in about two weeks! I was so excited to be given the opportunity to capture their growing family and Erin’s gorgeous 9 month belly bump!
We captured our session on Fort Lauderdale beach, which ended up being quite the adventure. Although you wouldn’t know it from these photos, the beach was actually packed with “spring breakers” having a giant beach party! Luckily, Erin & Manny already have two qualities that every parent needs: flexibility and a laid back attitude. They didn’t stress the crowd at all, and we were able to find our own little corner of the beach to have some privacy for our session.
As the sun began to set and the beachgoers started to pack things up, we headed down to the water for some of my favorite shots of the evening.
The sunset behind the trees was just beautiful, but of course Erin’s amazing and gorgeous bump took center stage!
On our walk over to the beach, I saw this amazing art wall, and just knew we needed to use it in our session. I love how these turned out. Finding those unexpected places to shoot is one of my favorite parts of on-location portrait photography. I love the dolphin giving Erin’s shoulder a “kiss!”
We ended our session as the sun was setting over the water. It was a beautiful spring evening and the breeze and water made for a calming effect as we wrapped.
Thank you so much to Erin & Manny for allowing me to capture this special time in your life! I can’t wait to see baby James! =)
