Okay, ladies. Don't hate me when I say this, but this is the first face I've never had to "Photoshop". At all. Pinky promise. It was kind of surreal.
There's a reason for that. This beautiful woman is none other than Miami's Award Winning Makeup Artist, Aimee Ortega Rodriguez from Chic Makeup by Aimee. (Hint, hint: she's your girl for your wedding, special event, commercial or personal photography session >>> http://www.chicmakeupbyaimee.com and Instagram @makeupbyaimee) Frankly, I'd like to make an extra room in my house and see if I can convince her to move in. She'd probably miss a couple of really important people in her life, though. Take a look at her sneak peek. ;)
At just 7 months old, he's "ready to walk"...or so he thinks. He. is. adorable.
When Aimee contacted me to do their family's first portraits with their new baby, I was so honored. Spending the day with them on South Beach was an absolute pleasure. The day could NOT have been more perfect. 72 degrees, barely a cloud in the sky, light breeze. That's why we live in Miami, isn't it?
Isn't she stunning?
Loved this quick little series of moments.
They were so cute together.
I adore this image. Not posed, she was just being playful with him and I turned quickly to catch it. Those are the best moments.
Can you even stand how cute this is? He looked straight at the camera AND smiled. What a good boy!
Aimee, thank you for allowing me the pleasure to document this beautiful afternoon with you and your lovely family. What a perfect age your little guy is for this family session...happy, alert, playful. He did amazingly well. (And thank you to your sister for helping to keep his attention!)
Can't wait to meet with you and show you the rest! By the way, you're just as beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside. There's nothing more important than that.
