Maria + Mckenzie // mommy and me in Coral Gables

Hey, friends! I've always heard about "mommy and me" sessions and seen plenty of photos of this trend - matching outfits, rosy cheeks, glittery backdrops - on Pinterest. I always thought it was an adorable idea to capture such a strong and special bond. A lot of my mom friends are always selflessly behind the camera taking pics of their little ones' every moment and milestone but rarely set aside time to be IN the photo. Well, kids grow up fast as do those moments. So I completely understood how Maria felt when she reached out to me to do a session with her adorable and sassy 5-year-old hija, Mckenzie.

M&M donned matching white floral dresses, tan strappy sandals and flower crowns. I tell you, style, hair, makeup and dimples were on POINT. And the historic Coral Gables Ruins set the scene for a chic yet enchanting session.

So after we opened Spotify on my phone to find the hottest Disney movie soundtracks, the dancing, laughing and picture-taking began. Enjoy some of my favorite moments. ~faith & glory
