Did I mention I visited Miami a few weeks back? It was for an amazing maternity photo session and it was a blast! While I was there I got to do this session at the beautiful Hollywood Beach Broadwalk, one-of-a-kind oceanfront promenade, named one of America’s Best Beach Broadwalks, which was amazing!
We also got to do the photo session at the Ancient Spanish Monastery. Did you know that this monastery hold one of the fascinating historical stories. Even though the Monastery of St. Bernard de Clairvaux was constructed in Northern Spain, the structures were purchased and dismantled stone by stone, packed in more than 11,000 wooden crates, and shipped to the United States in 1925. Later, the cloisters were purchased again and presented to the Bishop of Florida until now. What an amazing story!
But enough about history. What a better thing do on such beautiful places than documenting the love between two people and their labor of love. Meriana and Iwan are the cutest couple, so sweet and so in love. You know when you see a couple and they just look like they belong together? These two were just that. Meriana was 32 weeks pregnant when we were doing this photo shoot. Since baby Emma Claire can’t wait to see the world; that’s why by the time these pictures are posted; she has already captured the world with her smile.
Congratulations, Meriana and Iwan for your beautiful angel, Emma Claire. I was honored to take pictures of this momentous time in your lives.
