WOW what an awesome weekend full of limited edition holiday sessions with and without Santa in the studio! The kids were AWESOME and the families were also. I absolutely LOVE seeing my families every year and watching them grow. And meeting new ones also! These families are so lucky to have holiday memories every year to look back on.
Santa was a BIG hit and I secretly think all future holiday sessions will be offered with or without Santa each year. It was SO special to see the children be able to interact with Santa for more than just the standard 1 minute at the mall. He was able to talk to them, look at a book with them and then give them a special gift. The kids were SO excited and even the little ones that were unsure were able to have a few minutes to warm up. We were able to sneak in some tricks to still be able to capture the moment.
These holiday sessions were SO POPULAR this year that I am opening up another short day of them on December 12th. It will be a VERY quick turn for your images so that you have plenty of time to get out cards and holiday gifts. There will be limited time slots open so make sure to click HERE to read more information and register.
Here are just a few of the families that joined us this year for Simple Holiday Sessions 2020. Many families want to wait for sharing until holiday cards are out but I can’t wait to share those also at a later date!
WOW! It has been a long haul with no end in sight! Knowing that everyone has their own struggles through this and I am far from alone! I have watched many others “seem” to thrive with the lack of schedule, extra time and a shift in priorities. I am not one of them. I had GREAT intentions! LOL! But they never quite panned out. I totally lost focus. I am not sad or depressed just all over the place! No clear plan, no clear focus. I realized that even though my kids are older (13 and 17… both celebrating pandemic birthdays) when they didn’t go back to school after spring break I could never get my groove back! For example, no summer camps, canceled vacations, birthday celebrations changed, NO SCHEDULE!
So…. here we are, feeling like this sweet little one! We celebrated her first birthday at the studio during the pandemic but even with a mask it didn’t stop me from loving every minute of it!
What happened next?
Yesterday my youngest went to sailing camp! YES!!! It was like the first normal day we have had since quarantine. My daughter was out for the day. She was doing productive and fun things and I felt like…. NORMAL! I got things done, was motivated, working and staying off social media. It made me realize how much the kids being home and off schedule has effected me. I thought because my kids were older it would be easier. ALL THE COMPASSION for moms at home with younger kids!!!! But I was wrong…. It was hard for me also. Harder than I realized.
Once I had some quiet time I was focused. Just like this sweet baby. She had the BEST time celebrating her pandemic birthday. She wore a sweet little outfit from Lily and Max and the elegant cake was beautifully created bySugar & Bliss . It was so yummy, that mom and dad took home the the remaining parts to take home and eat! This family is (was) a member of the New Beginnings Plan and we are in the final stages of designing her first year album! I can not wait to share it with you!!!
Love this session?
No matter if we celebrate in the studio with a pandemic birthday or a newborn session, we would LOVE to chat with you about it and how special it is!
I want you to know that we take the health of our families very seriously. We are taking all precautions possible to make sure the studio is safe from Covid-19 for all families. Here are just a few of the things we will be doing to ensure safety for our families …
We will communicate before your session about your feelings moving forward with scheduling. We will talk about the below safety precautions in the studio or on location. I will confirm that no one participating in the session as had any viral symptoms in the last 14 days. Upon entering the studio, each family will be asked to sign a form that says they have not had any symptoms of Covid 19.
Upon entering the studio all family members will be asked to wash their hands. There will also be hand sanitizer readily available to be used at anytime during the session. I will also be washing my hands thoroughly before, during (if needed) and after each session.
You are welcome to bring your own masks but Tracy will have them also. She will be happy to wear one during your session if you prefer. She will also have them available for you if you prefer to wear them.
Disposable gloves will also be available. Tracy will happy to wear them if you prefer. You will also be welcome to use them if you prefer.
You will be asked to remove your shoes while in the studio. If you will be wearing them for your session, you will put them on to wear in the shooting area and then asked to remove them for the other areas of the studio. The floors will be disinfected after each session.
Family and session frequency
Until further notice, only immediate family members will be allowed in the studio. Only those participating in the session. ALSO- for now, sessions will be scheduled every 3 days. Although the studio will be disinfected thoroughly after each session this will ensure an extra measure of precaution.
After each session the studio will be disinfected with medical grade disinfectant and all wraps, props or wardrobe clothes borrowed will be washed and disinfected.
I hope all of these precautions will help you feel safe and comfortable before, during and after your session. If you still have concerns and would like to chat about covid-19 or anything with Tracy you are welcome to reach out. She is happy to address your concerns and reschedule or postpone your session if you are more comfortable doing so.
I am so excited to share a real sneak peek inside a session with ME at the Tracy Gabbard Photography studio! It showcases what the real experience when you choose Tracy to capture the most important time in your life. Wether a new baby, a milestone session or a family session Tracy strives to give you not only custom created albums and wall art that will last a life time BUT ALSO an amazing experience. She wants you to walk away with your heart full and with your home full of the joy of your family. It took many hours of hard work, a WONDERFUL family and a talented videographer Shannon Kelly to pull it all off! It will now grace the home page of my website tracygabbard.com. Check it out when you have a chance! But for now… here it is!
*Disclaimer…. we did this peek inside video BEFORE social distancing. So, if you are uncomfortable meeting in the studio for consult we can do it via video until this all passes! :). We are enrolling families, children and babies for summer months. If our situation does not change with the virus dangers all prepaid money will be refunded if cancelled because of COVID-19.
It’s crazy out there! We all want to say “NO Corona“. I understand, we are all concerned about so many aspects of this new virus and how it might effect our lives, health, finances and even on an entertainment level as more and more things are being cancelled we worry about tickets we have purchased and vacations we have planned.
For those mommy’s expecting a baby or with small children they have even one more worry. BUT I am here to tell you… “Don’t worry TGP mommy’s, I have you covered in at the photography studio“! We are taking ALL precautions at the TGP Photography studio. We are stepping up our game even more that normal to make sure that if your baby or children are in the studio we are PREPARED and doing everything possible to ensure your families health.
To Stay Safe
Here are a few things that we are doing (some of them we do anyway, all the time) to help make sure we all stay healthy!
LOW volume! My studio is ALWAYS a low volume studio. I choose to not take on too many sessions per month to make sure I have enough time to devote to my clients and my family at home. I DO NOT have many families in and out of the studio ever! and rarely have 2 sessions in one day (in the studio at least). Right now I will GUARANTEE at least 3 days between studio sessions in order to keep TGP photography studio sessions health. Even if that means pushing a newborn session a couple days past when I would normally schedule them. It looks like many news sources are sharing that this virus lasts up to about 3 days on surfaces. So that will hopefully ensure that any germs that may have been left after disinfecting will also be gone!
2. DISINFECTING everything after every session! We always do this anyway but we will be much more vigilant now. Wiping down furniture and disinfecting floors. Thankfully the studio is VERY simple so there is not much to disinfect! We also use safe disinfectant that is not harmful to the environment to say “No Corona” to the virus! BONUS!!!
3. WASHING all laundry! Again – this something we ALWAYS do after every session. Anything a baby or anyone uses gets washed. We also use safe, non toxic laundry detergent to ensure your baby doesn’t have any reactions to any blankets or wraps that their delicate skin may touch.
4. DOGS – We love to welcome dogs to sessions with their new babies but at this time we will not be able to schedule any sessions with fur babies! It is just to risky to any other families that may be headed into the studio, even if it is 3-4 days later. We will let you know once we are able to welcome them back! We will certainly miss them!
5. PLAY AREA – We have a nice little area with toys and things for children to do in the studio. Until further notice we will remove the toys from this area. We will ask families to bring in some small baskets of toys from their home to help keep the kids busy while they wait. This is just to ensure that children are not playing with toys that other families children have played with. This will also keep us from worrying that we missed something when disinfecting them.
6. GLOVES AND MASKS – We always have hand sanitizer out in the studio and I use it frequently when working with newborns but I will also have gloves and masks (until they run out LOL!) available for myself and any moms and dads that would like to use them. I will also use them during your session by request. I have NO problem doing this to help ensure your confidence!
7. SCREENING. All clients will be contacted with in 24 hours of their session to make sure no one is exhibiting any symptoms of any type of sickness. Most families are very respectful of this normally and reach out to let me know if they or their babies are not 100%. However, I will be reaching out personally just to make sure we are all on the same page.
8. CHANGE – you are welcome to change your studio newborn session to an in home session! This may give you a different look and feel to your session but we can do so and it will be just as beautiful as a studio session. If that is something you are interested in just let me know and we can talk about it!
I hope this helps reassure any families that already have a session scheduled or are thinking about it but are unsure because of any reason or particularly the corona virus that we are taking every precaution to say “No Corona” to the virus, and more to keep our studio a HEALTHY studio! Please reach out if you have any questions!
I have been blessed to see this family for the entire year! They are members of the popular New Beginnings Plan (NBP), the TGP’s 1 year baby plan. We have planned their session for the entire first year. Each of their sessions will be unique with each one including something different. Their fur baby, each set of grandparents at different sessions and I “think” the fur baby will come back for the first year session! The New Beginnings Plan includes a minimum of 3 sessions but more can be added for no additional session fee. They chose to add a 4th session. This session is what I call a “heads up” session. It happens around 3-4 months of age when they are holding their heads up really well on their own and smiling at their favorite people.
They have chosen to do the New Beginnings Plan album. An album that will build throughout the these sessions and will be printed and delivered after the last session. They are also building a wall gallery that will include a favorite wall print from each session. We have 1 more session left and I am excited to design their album! I will make sure to show it to you when it comes in!
Here are some favorites from her newborn session with her best friend and a few more I couldn’t leave out!
Here are a few favorites from her “heads up” session. I am so jealous that I did not get professional pictures of my babies with their grandparents! What a special memory for not only mom and dad but baby too!
Last but not least… here is a sneak peak of her first year wall gallery design on their actual wall! We add a piece to it from each session. I can not wait to see the final outcome!
I adore this family! During their family session their littlest has the most “sassy” (I mean that in a GOOD way!) personality. She is so fun to interact with and she loves to be silly. Just wait until you see the pictures at the end of this post. And a video of the beautiful album they purchased! It. is. to. die. for!
We fought some heavy cloud cover through out this session but the rain held out and we were able to get it done. When I schedule location sessions, I like to schedule them places where we can travel a little bit through the location and use some different spots to create some variety in the pictures. I always get to the location about 30 minutes ahead of time to make sure I can see where the best light will be and where the sun will be shining. We were able to get the most beautiful locations for this session!
I love to get the classic smiling posing images because I know they are important to families but my favorite types of images to capture are the interaction ones where it shows the real connection between families. You can see the love and joy that they have when they are together.
Photos of Little One
At the end of the session I decided to keep taking pictures of her! It was getting dark but she was being so funny I didn’t want to stop. I think these might have been some of my favorites from this session! She CRACKS me up!
This family decided to have me design and create a family album from their favorite images from their session. Many families have albums from each year they have a session with me and they are building their library of family albums! I know their children (and them) love to look at them often!
This little guy decided to make his way into the world a little earlier than expected and decided to have a nice hospital stay! BUT he was soooooo worth the wait! His little rolls are so yummy and those lips….. I loved each moment at this early newborn photography session.
I love all his hair! You never know how long newborn hair will stay but I was so happy he had so much for his photo session! Especially since we scheduled his session much later than I normally schedule newborn sessions.
Newborn Session when?
Newborn sessions are usually scheduled between 7 and 14 days after birth but this precious baby was several weeks old before he was able to come in to the studio for his session!
Big Sister at his Photo Session
His big sister had a special dolly that she brought with her to every session (and still does) so this special giraffe will be what he brings to every session. I can not wait to see how he grows with this special toy by his side!
He is so loved by his family! His big sister will be the best sister! I can already tell how much she loves him! She was such a big helper at his session and always ready to take pictures with her special new baby!
This newborn was such a great sleeper but I loved that he gave me just enough awake time to capture his eyes! He was so comfy all wrapped up and warm and was staring right at me!
I am always excited when a baby gives me lots of good sleep during their session but also a little bit of awake time so that I can capture them awake. Awake newborn images are some of my favorites!
If you would like to schedule a complimentary consultation for a newborn session I would love to hear from you! Contact the studio at (727) 491-6476 or fill out the contact form. We take a limited number of newborn sessions per month, it is really never to early to get your scheduled!
Time goes so fast and it is already time to start planning for your holiday session pictures! We are ready to reveal this years set experience, dates and times and registration is open NOW! 🙂 .
Holiday Session sets of this year will not only be VERY family friendly but as always, a fun experience! Great for kids and adults! Plan to get your winter coats, scarves and boots out to have a great time in the SNOW!!! Not only will your kids have fun in what feels like real snow but the portraits created from this set will be one of a kind and perfect for updated holiday pictures and cards.
Limited Edition SNOWFALL sessions!
These holiday sessions are beautifully lit with holiday tree lights, lanterns and SNOW! The set is designed to be simple and classic! All about the families and the winter season! All colors will look great here complete with holiday dress or simple casual looks work perfectly also! Tracy has a Pinterest board with many wardrobe ideas to help out with any questions! (Tracy DOES NOT recommend heels for girls or moms for this set- the snow is slippery, boots or other types of shoes will be best)
SNOWFALL holiday sessions are 20 minutes. The perfect amount of time for dads and kids! LOL! This gives just enough time for family (if all members are participating), siblings and the kiddos alone! This experiences will be for ONE weekend! Early bird special on Friday, Nov. 8th and regular sessions on Saturday November 9th and Sunday November 10th!
A little late night loving! Snuggles from your baby are the absolute best! As your sweet babies grow snuggle time becomes less and less!
Believe me, I know! As I have watched my “babies” grow I miss these precious times. I wish I had taken the time to captured more of these times.
Did you know that Tracy works with you to make sure she captures your favorite moments with your baby? Sessions are not all about classic smiles (there’s lots of that to) but they are about capturing those precious times you cherish as a family and with your little ones. Call or email Tracy to find out more!
I’m trying….. as hard as this sweet baby is trying to take his first steps… to get back into the swing of things! It’s a new month I have lots to share I just need to get back into the swing of things!
But getting back to this sweet family… These moments are priceless.. never to happen again! I wish with all my heart that I could go back for just a short time and enjoy my babies when they were this little. I still get to enjoy the excitement of older kids “firsts” but somehow it is bitter sweet. Now it’s just a few short years until I know they are out on their own making all the “older” firsts seem so long ago. I’m so lucky to be able to watch all these other babies grow and experience their “firsts” through their mommy and daddy’s eyes.
Capturing the connections between families has all my ♥️♥️! If you want a totally different photography experience and want to create art work that you can enjoy on your walls and in your homes. Family art work that you can experience together as a family, that can be enjoyed for all the years of your life from first steps to innumerable, then the TGP experience could be for you. I walk you step by step (just like first steps of this sweet baby😀) through the process. Through what to wear, hair and makeup, a stress free session and then all the designing and ordering of your chosen art work (even possible delivery)! If you are ready for something different, something easy to help you capture these precious moments then feel free to reach out so we can talk about what is important to you!
Chat with me about your baby’s first steps at my Facebook Page.

We’ve been showing you a lot of beautiful Photography Sessions at Tracy Gabbard’s studio in the Clearwater area.
The Silver Bells collection, was absolutely gorgeous this year, and she was able to share a great time with families wearing their Holiday outfits. Beautiful dresses, silly poses, gift opening, and reading were some of the highlights on each Silver Bells Photography Session.
Today, we want to bring you a different one. This was an outdoor Holiday Session, for a young family member. A very casual and fresh look. Of course full of seasonal flowers in the background. They give a warm tone to the canvas.
This was definitely a different day outside the studio. Full of color and vibrant tones, Tracy found shiny tree lights and included them in the background, for a pretty effect.
Overall, a nice walk in the park with his favorite pets. Two beautiful dogs that were enjoying the natural surroundings. The nice breeze and weather outside made this a very easy, smooth session.

What’s better than one baby? That’s right! Two babies. Family Photography Sessions are always better when there are two babies!
At Tracy’s studio, Family Photography Sessions are filled with laughter and fun. Sometimes, we are lucky to have beautiful twins and siblings with some small or long age gap that makes every session very special.
Even though babies grow fast, their age gap can be noticed a lot more when they are younger, especially during the First Years.
You can definitely see their expressions and capture their personalities on these special occasions. The older siblings are always loving and protective towards their younger brother or sister. Tracy does an incredible job at capturing this with a high-end creamy and soft finish, keeping sharpness and quality in every photograph.
Tracy finds it interesting, and she likes to play with this characteristics as they become possible. For example. In this photograph, you can see these two little ones have a big age gap. It was a great opportunity to create this heartwarming canvas.
Family Photography is Tracy Gabbard‘s passion. She loves having families coming to her Studio in the Clearwater area and creating different concepts to portray their client’s memories.
It is also very commonly desired by parents, to use the same outfits and match them just for fun. Sometimes they would do it for twins but other times just because it’s a fun thing to do. With this white background, Tracy created a very smooth and refreshing look on these siblings.
Sometimes, Tracy loves getting out of the Studio and shoot at special locations. Some locations have a special place in the client’s hearts or are simply stunning, Family Photography can be shot either at the Studio or Outdoors as well.
Last but not least, sometimes everything is even better when there are three! We want to wish you a great weekend! Thank you for reading!

This trend has become a tradition now, Cake Smash Photography is a must!
We teach our kids not to play with food, but for only ONE day, this rule is meant to be broken. During the First Year, babies are growing at the speed of light. And to finish with style, booking a fun Cake Smash Photography Session is the best idea.
Tracy Gabbard is one of the top Professional Photographers in the Tampa Bay area. She offers these creative and colorful Photography Sessions to celebrate the Baby’s First Birthday.
Today we brought you a compilation of the sweetest (literally) photographs captured in Tracy’s Studio. Balloons and colorful outfits are the best props to contrast the white background and natural lighting at her Studio in Clearwater, Fl.
For the Cake Smash Photography Sessions, parents pick the colors to use. Usually going as blue for boys and pink for girls, but some other great options go from blue to purple and orange.
Besides being colorful and fun, it’s a great way to capture their smile. Most babies enjoy smashing the cake and eating it during the Cake Smashing Photography Session, babies love sweets and treats, so this themed session is definitely the most fun for them!
These Photography Sessions are the complete contrast of the usual sessions that Tracy offers. And this is because it’s a very special occasion, especially when it is their first time. It brings a beautiful, organic chaos of sweet cake! It’s messy but fun and memorable.

There are times where the best props are special objects that will belong to the baby. It’s a beautiful memory to be able to show when they grow up. To look back and see how much their parents loved them, even before they were born.
First and foremost, it is Family Photography time, whether you take them with your family or you book a high-end photo session with Tracy Gabbard.
The weather is gorgeous and it is the perfect time to get together and bond as a family. Maybe it is just you and your baby, you and your spouse and kids or the whole family. Family Photography is one of the most classic forms of photography and for a good reason.
Family comes first. With them, you grow, you evolve and you learn every single day. If there is someone who is always going to be there, that would be your Mother, Father or those who raised you.
Sometimes, life makes it hard for the family to get together. And since most people have the opportunity, members of the family will travel across the globe to share time with you.
Maybe you are even luckier and are expecting a baby. This would be just the perfect time to book a Family Photography session with Tracy Gabbard.

Make sure to ask for the special custom products she offers besides the digital files. There are beautiful products such as canvases, high-quality photo albums and many more options to display.
The Holiday Celebrations are about to start this week with one of the top Tampa Photographers.
Tracy Gabbard has been working super hard at her studio in Clearwater, Fl these days.
Today we want to share our love with the Fall colors. Those creamy and soft tones that match every baby’s skin!
And we start this list with our best friend. Because pets are angels with paws. They spend so much time with us, they become a family member, so of course, they must be included in the photographs!
Here we have a beautiful example of cute props at the studio. Babies look adorable with these creatives ideas. Tracy is always innovating and trying new things at her studio, which makes her stand out between all Tampa Photographers.
This photograph is very sharp and detailed. And the texture of the blanked that is covering this beautiful Newborn makes its skin peachy and smooth. It’s a magical contrast between textures.
Tracy is very passionate when it comes to Newborn Photography. She enjoys placing babies in these perfect poses while they fall asleep. She has a great ability to calm the newborns to achieve the perfect photograph!
Another tiny baby turned into a teddy bear! This baby is so small, makes everything else look gigantic! Look at the rug. It is heart-melting.
A little more on the coral tones but incredibly sweet picture, it’s refreshing and calm, portraying the beauty of those first days on a Newborn’s life.
Have you noticed how fast baby’s feet grow? It’s one of the first things parents want to portray when they come into the studio for a Newborn Photo Session.
The love of a mother, her arms and shoulders are a baby’s safest place to be. It’s a special and unbreakable bonding experience that every lucky mother gets to experience.
Don’t forget that there is one more chance to register for TGP Limited Edition Holiday Sessions this year.
It’s no secret. Tracy Gabbard loves Newborn Photography.
Today we are taking you back to basics. And you probably guessed right.
Firstly, “White” is Tracy’s favorite color for Newborn Photography sessions. And it is for many reasons.
White is elegant, full of light and it portrays purity and cleanliness. It is used for many reasons to give a fresh and harmonious feeling to any photo session.
Tracy has been a Newborn Photographer for over a decade now. She has a special ability to capture the most heartwarming photographs of the youngest members of the family.
Tracy knows how important this event is in the life of every expecting family. It makes her feel proud to have the opportunity to be the Photographer to capture the first years in the newborn’s life.
Families come back all the time to capture the different stages. Tracy usually offers a special package that is only available for local families in the Tampa Bay area. The First Year photography sessions.
With this plan, families have the opportunity to capture photos of their babies during their first year of life, and the results are amazing.
It’s impressive how much they change in a single year.
Sometimes, families have their best friend in the studio as well. This lovely dog matches the set. They bring a warm touch to the canvas and overall laughter to the sessions.
Newborn Photography is an investment for your family.
Tracy not only offers digital photographs but also, custom-made products such as framed canvases, floating canvases, and high-quality albums to keep those valuable memories for a lifetime.
The top colors for any Holiday Photography Sessions are without a doubt Red, Green, and Silver! Especially Silver!
Even though the TGP Limited Edition Holiday Sessions are coming to an end, remember you still have a chance. This Saturday 11/24/18 is the last chance to schedule a very special Holiday Session with Tracy.
Today we bring you a couple of beautiful photographs Tracy has taken in the past years.
This beautiful Newborn baby was dressed up in a delicate Santa Claus costume. Maybe to be part of Santa’s fabric and bring gifts to all well-behaved kids around the world!
Tracy performs with such delicacy when it comes to Newborns. Besides being her passion, she enjoys capturing their facial expressions and in this case, the details in the blanket that is covering the newborn. She has the ability to make her stand out and show a beautiful yet delicate flower on the forehead.
In this special occasion, during a Holiday Photography Session, Tracy had the opportunity to have parents that love animal print, and mixing it with Holiday colors, they created this creative look. Such a lovely, wild one!
Tracy has the unique talent to safely handle Newborns and the tiniest babies that come into her studio in Clearwater, Fl. She has a special ability to lay them on their best angle to show every detail. In this last picture, you can see the newborn’s toes and fingers, as well as the peaceful expression on the face.
The year is about to end and this is definitely the best time to capture beautiful, unique memories with Tracy Gabbard.

The weather may still be warm, but it’s the best time for a Family Photography Session.
Fans of fall are fully aware of the changing leaves, crisp air, and smell of Pumpkin Spice Lattes in the air.
It’s the best time of the year to enjoy a Family Photography session with Tracy. We are lovers of sweater season. But while we love the beautiful colors, cozy nights, and treats of the season, there’s one other reason why we’re always excited when autumn rolls around.
Here are a few reasons why we consider fall to be one of the best seasons for Family Photography.
The weather is perfect
An adult, nothing makes you feel worse than sweating like crazy during your entire session. For a few months during autumn, the weather is gorgeous. Sessions go smooth and comfy, and the weather makes your life easier.
You have more outfit options
Once autumn arrives, your outfit options increase dramatically. It’s still sunny enough to slip in some warmer options, but not too hot to wear something long sleeved or heavier if you prefer. You can wear those warm boots and jackets that you like so much!
There’s no way we could make it through a post about fall in without mentioning the beautiful leaves. The different tones in the leaves make the sessions look warm and cozy. Definitely a great time to capture memories.
You have an excuse to do a Halloween themed Session
Sometimes, families are full of creativity. Maybe it is a small prop or a full costume, but this time of the year is a great excuse to dress up. Maybe even do a full costume group. It is super fun.
Contact Tracy for more information about photography sessions in the Tampa Bay area.
This family got together in the studio to celebrate life and take memorable photographs of the entire family.
The little ones dressed up with their favorite fantastic characters. A cute aquamarine mermaid dress that fits her perfectly, while her brother is loving his “Cars” costume.
They are all celebrating their youngest daughter’s first birthday. They dressed her up all in red, to represent love and passion and included one balloon to represent her age.
Tracy loves Family Photography because it allows to bring together the family in the studio. This time they also adventured at the outdoors in the Tampa Bay area, for a very fresh vibe.
Also, featuring red attires, they set a Picnic scenario to capture the family in this very important milestone. These closeups with mom and dad are too cute. You can see her smiling every time they hold her.
This Family Photography session was filled with a lot of emotions, the youngest little one went through a whole lot of emotions during the session, but to show how much she loves mom and dad, she smiles the most in the photos where they are together.
It was definitely a fun session. Themed Family Photography sessions are always filled with personality, laughter and creativity. Halloween is a great time for this type of sessions, are a great idea to capture this time of the year and a great memory to look back to.

One thing is for sure. This little two-year-old is a happy kid. She filled the studio with laughter and the incredible mix of colors make the canvas look absolutely energizing.
One of the skills that make Tracy stand out before other professionals who offer Children Photography, is her ability to handle the little ones and shape them into a great environment filled with positive energy.

This little one didn’t bring a real-life pet with her but, thanks to Tracy’s outstanding digital editing skills. She was able to role play in the studio and add the cutest fish to the small water bowl for a natural effect.

Kids have an enormous imagination, feeding it with this themed photos was absolutely fantastic.
