baby's first birthday

Celebrating baby’s first birthday during a pandemic

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 by Sugar & 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!

 

Newborn Photography – Worth the wait

Newborn Photography

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. Early Newborn Photography by TGP

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!

This colorful Family Photography Session will definitely melt your heart.

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.

4 Years Of Life Celebrated With a Children Photography Session ♥

Celebrating four years of life with a Children Photography Session in the Studio with Tracy Gabbard.

Tracy is a skilled photographer in the Tampa Bay area and located in the Clearwater area.

She has a natural lighting photography studio that brings the best environment for the perfect photos.

This time we have two little brothers in the studio. Children Photography has a very special place in Tracy’ heart because it gives her the opportunity to watch them grow through the years.

Most families who come to the studio while they are pregnant or in the early stages of their new family member’s life, come back to capture every important milestone with her. Especially birthdays and important dates.

This time we have two little ones that are not so little anymore. They are best friends and have a great relationship. Older and younger brother got together to celebrate another birthday together.

They have, like all brothers, different personalities, one prefers red, the other one loves blue. Contrast colors look great together.

Tracy loves to use light colors such as gray and white, and they go very good with the choice of clothes for this set.

She enjoys capturing the kid’s expressions and personalities through every photo. And you can tell how comfortable they look during the session.

One of the abilities that make her stand out in front of other professionals who work with Children Photography, is precise, that she can bring the little ones into a fun and happy mood that make photo sessions very smooth and relaxed.

Celebrating 4 Years Of Life With The Top Photographer In Tampa Bay

Happy Monday everyone! And today we have this little one but not so little!

Not everything is Babies and Moms and Dads! Tracy is a very skilled photographer in the Tampa Bay area and she loves photographing families through their whole lives if preferred. It is a dream to work with families for over ten or twenty years and look at the timeline and say, “OH MY GOD!” And entire lifetime.

This very handsome boy turned four years old and Tracy and his family decided to get outside and take advantage of the perfect weather and natural lighting to celebrate that amazing birthday!

He posed for the pictures in a very natural way, he is totally comfortable in front of the cameras and he looks so happy! His smile captivates us in absolutely every single picture.

His green, beautiful eyes goes with everything, the natural scenery and even his clothes. The selection for this was simply stunning.

Fresh, clean and modern. And just to make it even better, his brother joined for this amazing photo session.

They are very close together, and you can even tell from the distance, they look so alike, with only a few inches apart and little age gap, they almost look like twins.

This was such a fun and sunny session out there at the natural scenery of Tampa Bay.

Every year is important, specially when children are so young, because they go through so many changes and they grow so fast, it’s important to capture those beautiful memories of moments that won’t come back.

This is why Tracy is so passionate about photography and to show families how valuable these photos will be in the future, so they can look back and say “Wow, you were so little back then!” and bring a smile to family and friends.
