OMG! Puppies Galore!

Puppies Photography

TEN puppies in the studio!  It was SO much fun to play with these little ones and doing puppies photography in the studio!  We had a great time watching them try to sit and walk.  I LOVE how all their eyes look so blue and they absolutely LOVED to snuggle with each other!  They continuously would dig their little heads into each other so they could snuggle, stay warm and sleep.   I was even able to use some of my newborn session tricks to get them all to sleep at one time. πŸ™‚ . There were lots of hands on deck to help corral them all together and keep them comfy. 

In this litter of puppies there were 4 sets of twins and 5 boys and 5 girls.  A perfect littler!  I love the second picture as the middle puppy yawns and the other one tries to eat it’s siblings ear.  There were so many fun pictures to post it was hard to decide but here is a few of my favorites.  They will all make you smile.

Very similar to newborn sessions

This session was similar to an actual newborn session.  We kept the studio warm, tried to keep quiet, relaxed the puppies by rubbing their little noses right between the eyes and evened “shushed” them a few times with the “shhhhh” noise.  If you have ever had a newborn session with me, you know those are all things I do with the babies to keep them sleepy and relaxed.  

I thought it would be fun this summer to photograph a few other things that I love besides all my babies and toddlers. And, of course puppies was at the top of the list!  I had a great response to my shout out for a litter of puppies and it looks like I may have another set at the end of July.  There might be some other baby animals in store for fun this summer also so make sure to keep your eyes on social media and the blog!

Limited Edition Mothers Day Sessions

Mothers Day Sessions!

They are finally here, the long awaited Limited Edition Mothers Day Sessions! I am so excited to see all the mamma’s, grandmamma’s and children and capture memories for them that will last forever. These sessions have been designed to be interactive and to capture sweet moments between mom’s and children. Moments that will be remembered through portraits that are looked at and enjoyed everyday.

These captured moments are meant to be professionally printed and proudly displayed for enjoyment. They are meant to make your heart “pitter patter” each time you walk by and look at them. They are to create keepsakes that will be passed down to children and grandchildren.They are special, they are priceless. They are for all ages from babies to grandma’s but they are for mom’s and children only. The goal is for all products ordered to be back in time for Mothers Day.Please don’t let this opportunity pass you by. If your babies are little you know how fast time goes and if your “babies” are big, you understand that even more!

Mothers Day Photo Session

Here’s how they work…

You will choose 2 dates.  One for the session itself (i.e. Saturday, March 24th) and the other one for your selection/viewing appt (there will not be any on line galleries).  At that selection/viewing appointment you will see all of your images from the session and you will order your products at that time as well.  You will be able to see all of the products offered at your actual session so you will have a good idea of what you would like from the session at your appt.  I will be there to guide you through the process and help you select the products that are right for you.  Click on Product Guide to view details.  There will be a few other products offered but these will be exclusive just for the Mothers Day Sessions. These will not be offered in the studio at any other time.

Limited Edition Mothers Day Photo Sessions

The set is designed to be light and airy with flowers and pastel colors.  Blues, yellows, purples and light greens would look great for boys and girls could easily wear the same!  Simple patterns or solids will show off your portraits best.  Email Tracy if you need more ideas or have questions about wardrobe.

The session will last about 20 minutes or so which is plenty of time to capture some sweet moments and classic portraits.  The viewing/selection appointments will be scheduled for an hour but will probably take around 30 minutes or so.  Registration is 189.00 and 50.00 will be applied back as a credit to your order at your selection appointment (as long as you order at that appointment).  If you have looked over the product guide and are ready to schedule your session, we are excited to have you and capture some very special moments!

Close Ups by TGP – Look At Those Eyes!

Grabbed some of my favorites!

Let’s talk about close ups!  At each photography session I always try to do a few close ups .  I love the way they capture the details of the eyes and for the little guys their little teeth (or lack of :)) It’s fun to capture silly faces and serious ones as well.  They don’t always have to be smiling to make an impact and evoke emotion.  Sometimes non smiling photographs end up being my favorites.  I love them for babies, kids and older children.  I reached back several years to grab some of my favorites!  You may have seen some of these before but a few of these kiddos are 5 and 6 years old already!  Time flies!  Do you see your little one (or older one :)) in these photos picked by me from the collection of Tracy Gabbard Photography Albums?
