Meet a Mom with Photographer Tami Jill | The Miami Moms

What do you love about Miami, How long have you lived here?
I’ve lived in Miami for 13 years! I love my little neighborhood in Sunny Isles because you can walk or ride your bike everywhere… to school, to starbucks, the beach, etc. Miami is also filled with so many healthy food and juice bar options, so that always comes in handy! 

 Please tell us about your photography business. 
I specialize in family photography, everything from maternity & newborns to toddlers and teens. My style is very natural and sun-kissed. I’ve been in business for 11 years! Its been such amazing journey and I’ve met the most incredible mothers along the way! I started off in the wedding photography industry, then after I had my son Benjamin,  Family Photography just felt more like my calling! 

 What do you love most about your job?
Connecting with families and capturing emotional moments that have true meaning. Family memories are my #1 most important thing in my personal life, so it feels really natural for me to want to capture memories for other families! I read an article from a child physiologist saying that when children see family photos around the house, it makes them feel like that have a strong support system and makes them feel confident and loved so I’m happy knowing its for a greater cause [Symbol]  

 How has this community been instrumental in getting you to where you are now?
The Miami Motherhood community is truly amazing, my business has grown over 11 years and I see my clients year after year capturing their growing families through my lens.  I always joke that I feel like I have hundreds of little cousins because I have captured my clients children growing over so many years I have a special bond with their kids  

So great to hear that! So what’s something that would surprise people about you?
I’m pretty minimalistic. I’ve been living in the same condo since age 23 and I’m 37 now with a 7 year old! My husband and I really enjoy living simply in our small space, not having a lot of stuff makes life really easy for us and I get to just concentrate on being creative and living simply! 

 Where are your favorite places to capture Miami’s beautiful scenery?
My all time favorite spot is South Point Beach, the light is amazing and clients get so many different backgrounds from the tall sea grass to the large rocks in the ocean, it’s the perfect Miami setting! 


 What do you consider to be the best part of   motherhood so far?
Life just feels very complete; I’m not searching for anything or needing anything else other than family time, friends and nurturing my business… No space or time for anything that doesn’t feed my soul! 


 What’s your favorite meal to make for your family? Do you mind sharing the recipe? 
I love being in the kitchen, when I’m not working that’s usually where you can find me! I’m really into smoothies for Ben, you can pack so much nutrition into one smoothie, here’s his favorite lately: 

  • Coconut water 
  • Spinach 
  • Frozen Pineapple 
  • Frozen banana 
  • Kale
  • Banana flavored Probiotic powder from Gryph & IvyRose
