1. Stunning seaside condo with “the tallest view on the East Coast”
One of Miami’s most famous features is its beaches. And if you’re doing a photoshoot in Miami, it’s a great idea to take advantage of the fantastic ocean views. This condo, with its large balcony, is allegedly the tallest residential view on the East Coast (it’s on the 70th floor, to be specific) — you’ll be so high up in the sky that you’ll be able to easily see as far as Fort Lauderdale, South Beach, and Key Biscayne. That’s what makes it a standout among our top maternity photoshoot ideas near Miami. What a breathtaking backdrop!
2. Spacious outdoor garden in the heart of South Beach
By day, this is a sunny and spacious (3,500-square-foot!) tropical garden, with private cabanas and an outdoor bar. By night, you’ll find dramatic mood lighting, as well as fire torches that create a cool, dramatic ambiance. Either way, surrounded by the garden’s variety of lush plantings, you can’t go wrong with this spot!
3. Classic Miami home in a tropical setting
Here’s another one of our top maternity photoshoot ideas near Miami. This home is a total Miami classic, built in 1948 and featured in leading architectural publications like Architectural Forum magazine. The private, fully fenced and gated home is filled with luxurious furnishings, and its flowing downstairs floor plan and large windows blend perfectly with the outdoor spaces. On a quarter-acre of space, you’ll find a large pool with fountains and waterfalls, tropical fruit trees (including coconut, mango, starfruit, and banana trees), rock gardens, and a wide lawn.
4. Well-furnished, contemporary home in Miami Shores
This open-layout, three-bedroom home looks out onto a glorious tropical backyard that epitomizes the feel of Miami. Inside, you’ll find plenty of thoughtful and welcoming decor, including original paintings by local artist Fabian Valle. You’ll feel totally at home here — in fact, you may not even want to leave when your photoshoot is done!
5. Spacious mid-century home in a residential neighborhood
This private, 3,500-square-foot home, located in the quiet, suburban Miami Shores neighborhood, includes four bedrooms and three bathrooms. In addition to the expansive living spaces, which are all on a single floor, there’s a welcoming and secluded pool (the dynamic and mesmerizing look of reflective water always makes a great backdrop for a photoshoot). As one reviewer commented: “Great space, wonderful experience.” We think you’ll feel the same!
6. Picturesque 1600-square-foot urban art space
One reviewer described this location as “absolutely beautiful with a modern, urban feel,” while another simply called it “amazing.” Located in northeastern Miami’s Little River Arts District, it’s a perfect gathering space for the neighborhood’s growing artistic community. It’s picturesque, too, with 14-foot ceilings, huge windows, and skylights that lend the space an airy feel. And, most importantly, there’s always tons of art on the walls. If you’d like to cultivate a creative atmosphere for your maternity photoshoot, this is a great choice.
7. Awe-inspiring multi-purpose warehouse studio
A lovely indoor oasis, this studio has plenty of space (2,600 square feet, to be exact), making it especially suited to a photoshoot that involves a great deal of energy and movement. If you’re a dancer, for instance, you might try snapping maternity photos that incorporates your dancing! But even a calmer, more stationary photoshoot will benefit from the airy feel created by all this space and natural light.
8. Bright and beautiful 1000-square-foot daylight studio
Another extremely spacious location, this daylight studio is the definition of airy and open: it’s 1000 square feet, with four massive southwest-facing windows, and crisp-white walls. It’s also located in Miami’s Arts and Entertainment District, so you can soak up some of that creativity and allow it to inspire your photoshoot.
9. Majestic 360-degree ocean views from 51st-floor condo
The apartment itself is gorgeous: a spacious two-bedroom and two-bathroom home, professionally decorated with tasteful, comfortable furniture and appealing decor. But what really stands out about this space is its view of the ocean from the 51st floor. It not only includes a huge balcony — it’s got ocean views everywhere you look! There’s no better scenery for a maternity photoshoot.
10. South Beach rooftop with picture-perfect city views
Speaking of unbelievable views, here’s another photoshoot location that has them in spades. It’s a 2500-square-foot space with what the hosts describe aptly as a “lovely South Beach vibe.” We could describe it in detail for you, but it’s best if you just take a look at the photos yourself — they showcase how breathtaking this venue is for nighttime snapshots, especially.
