Simple Holiday Sessions 2020

Holiday Sessions with and without Santa

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!

Family Session in the park

Family Session Outdoor

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.

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!

Tracy Gabbard Family Photography, baby's first steps

Baby’s First Steps- Family Photography

Baby’s First Steps

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.

Family Photography

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!

Double Trouble! 5 Beautiful Siblings from Family Photography Sessions

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!

Happy Thanksgiving from Tracy Gabbard, time for Family Photography ♥

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.

We encourage to pay special attention to your family these days. Make memories, have conversations and make that bond even stronger. 

In these modern days, we celebrate Thanksgiving by spending time with our family. Don’t forget to make sure you express your love and affection.

 

Every year, families join Tracy at her studio in Clearwater, Florida for a special Family Photography session. She is devoted to her clients and enjoys bonding all the way through the sessions. It soon becomes a tradition. 

These special moments are valuable and won’t come back. Book a high-end photo session with Tracy Gabbard before the year ends.

Four Reasons Why Fall Is The Perfect Season For Family Photography

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!

The leaves!

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.

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.

Cutest Children Photography Session Of The Day!

We celebrate the second year of life with a very colorful Children Photography session with Tracy Gabbard.

 

 

Not everything is Newborns around here.

That’s only the first step. As they grow old and move forward with milestones, families always come back to the studio to continue to capture their journey behind Tracy’s camera lens.

 

 

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. 

 

 

Red is the color of passion, red, emotion and it’s a warm color that is very powerful. A photo like this would stand out wherever it is shown.

She loves Elmo from Sesame Street and they didn’t think twice to add it to the session. 

 

 

A beautiful thing that comes with growing up, is that moment when the little ones start sitting up. It’s a great opportunity to capture their first steps without the help of parents. 

 

 

Tracy is a mother of two and she is passionate about Children Photography. She has over ten years of experience with children and you can see how easy it is for her to portray the best expressions! 

 

 

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.

 

 

You can definitely see it in her face, she is having the time of her life, and everyone in the studio is laughing and enjoying as well. 

 

 

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

 

Reasons Why Dogs Are By Far Our Best Friends + Heartwarming Puppies and Babies Photos!

There is a reason that dogs are awarded by being to as “A man’s best friend”

Tracy Gabbard is a Photographer located in the Tampa Bay area, check out the cutest photos taken at her studio, she knows that when you have a dog as a member of your family, regardless of whether it’s simply you and the puppy, you and a partner and the dog or you and a group of five or more dogs, there is a bond there that exclusive a puppy darling can really know.

Life is loaded with festivities and battles and here are four reasons dogs are the best friends to experience both the great occasions and the awful occasions with than most pets out there.

 

  1. They don’t pass judgment. It’s hard to believe, but it is true, dogs don’t realize what judgment is. They will never say I told you so. They will just twist up with you on the love seat or the floor and adore you for you. They couldn’t care less what any other person on the planet considers you. They cherish you for precisely your identity.

  1. They know the correct words are no words. They can recognize a pregnant woman baby’s heartbeat. When we are sad, they keep us company. We need somebody to embrace us and keep us company in the hardest moments. Dogs are life savers and they will be there in the hardest times of your life.

  1. They are never grumpy. Puppies don’t wake up on the wrong side of the bed. They are glad to wake up and welcome the day. Every day is a play day! People could learn a thing or two from them.

  1. They are dependably up for whatever you need to do. Going for a run? They’re in. Need to relax in the sun? In the shade? On the shoreline? On the love seat? All in. Constantly. Indeed, even companions aren’t constantly. Puppies? They are there forever.

And of course, all the pictures above were taken by the top Tampa Bay photographer, Tracy Gabbard, she specializes in Newborn Photography and Family Photography as well, but when the family comes with extra paws, she is more than happy to include them!

The Beauty Of Pregnancy + Beautiful Maternity Photography by Tracy Gabbard

Pregnancy is really a special time in a woman’s life. Not every person concurs, but rather pregnancy truly is a extraordinary experience.

Pregnancy comes with good and bad times, and here and there it tends to be difficult to acknowledge your new, pregnant shape. Yet, pregnancy is the most beautiful ability women have to create new life and something that must be celebrated!

That is the reason why I must give you 7 reasons why pregnancy is lovely!

1. Creating life

 

There is nothing more astounding than creating a new life! Simply consider all the stunning changes that will be happening to your child every day during those 9 months. That is delightful!

2. New shape with a purpose

As that life is made, your shape will change. It’s on purpose! It’s not on account of you’re not practicing or not eating great; this is a direct result of that astounding new life. Cherish it!

3. Flawlessly femininity

Is there anything that can be compared to pregnancy? It’s a unique experience, the ultimate female gift!

4. Physical rewards

A great deal of ladies do encounter silky hair, nails, bigger bosoms, and so on while pregnant. Why not appreciate it?

5. Those little kicks!

Knowing that inside your belly, there is a genuine, live child is truly amazing! How many of you simply sit and watch the infant move at times?

6. No stressing over additional weight

For once, you don’t need to fuss that your hips are somewhat more extensive, or your thighs are kissing. Regardless of whether the additional weight you gain isn’t in your fault, it is there for a reason: to feed your baby! Love your pregnant shape overall!

7. Baby Arrival

That little one and its arrival, regardless of how it happens, is an beautiful thing. There is simply nothing else like it. Encountering the birth and afterward holding the infant that developed in your body every one of those months… stunning!

Top Reasons Why Family Is Important & Family Sessions with Tracy Gabbard

Dive into our gallery to check out Tracy’s Family sessions. We gathered some of them for you to see how heartwarming they all are. She is one of the top best photographers in the Tampa Bay area.

There are many reasons why family is the most important thing you will ever have:

  1. Your family is made of individuals that draw out the best in you. In spite of the fact that you can’t pick your family, they are the ones you can identify with the most. They are the general population who are continually giving a shout out to you and really need the best for you.
  2. Family is the absolute most essential impact in a child’s life. From their first snapshots of life, youngsters rely upon guardians and family to ensure them and accommodate their necessities. Guardians and family shape a child’s first connections.
  3. They are a little one’s first instructors and go about as good examples in the proper behavior and how to encounter their general surroundings. By supporting and showing children amid their initial years, families assume a vital part in ensuring kids are prepared to realize when they enter school.
  4. Children flourish when guardians can effectively advance their positive development and improvement. Each parent realizes that it’s occasionally hard to do this imperative work without help, bolster, and extra assets.
  5. Parents can show kids about feelings by giving them particular feeling words to portray their emotions. Studies demonstrate that marking emotions with words diminishes misery and makes it more outlandish than an irate individual will follow up on his or her outrage. Words enable us to make the move from responding to reacting.”

Tracy is a very family oriented photographer and she cares immensely about her clients and their bond as a family. She makes sure the best memories are kept forever in every session and express their feelings through every photograph.

This time, Tracy decided to take a very clean, fresh approach and the result is very heartwarming.

This picture intends to capture the beauty of the smallest feet in the family, it is a very special moment in their lives.

It was such a fun moment when Tracy wrapped him up with this soft cloth. You can see that little smile. Tracy always makes sure to  handle all babies with care and keep the environment very safe for everyone.

And last but not least, a very romantic picture of the new family. More photo sessions are yet to come and tell a new story.

Tracy’s passion for children and families dates way back before her photography career took off. Tracy started working in a preschool at age 18 while working on her degree in Elementary Education.

After directing and owning her own preschool for more than 10 years, she found herself still wanting to continue to work with pre-school age children. As she began to capture the precious beginnings   of her newborn son, she quickly fell in love with photography. Nearly 12 years later, her passion as continued to grow in learning and perfecting her craft of Newborn and Family portrait photography.

Tampa Family Photographer

OMG!  These 2 are hilarious! As a Tampa family Photographer I have been SO lucky to photograph them since the they were both newborns.  I don’t think we have missed even one year.  They are both crazy, funny and SO much fun!  After 8 years of following them through their little lives I have literally watched them grow up before my eyes.  It is fun to find new places to have sessions… we have done local parks, clearwater beaches, Tampa universities, the TGP studio and now downtown Tampa.  We just did a little story on their session from last year here.… My heart is full when I get to spend time with them and mom gets a break since I take them off on my own.  Their personalities crack me up and I LOVE that they know me and are comfortable with me.  There is always lots of laughing and giggles throughout the time we spend together and you can see how fun they are in this picture as he reacts to a silly secret his sister told him!  

 

During the session, unprompted by me, big sister asked me to take a pretty picture of the flowers she picked…. how perfectly girl like and sweet… 

Now for the funny part….. a little later in the session, Mr “C” asked me to take a picture of….

yes…. the ANT crawling on his arm! LOL!  TOTAL girl and boy representation there!  I am fairly sure that the picture of this ant will NOT be a large portrait above the fireplace BUT I bet it makes it into and album page because it is SOOO him and shows exactly what both of these awesome kids are like at this age!  And after all, isn’t that what portrait sessions are all about?  

Today We Bring You A Colorful Family Story.

 

The first year has been the cutest photography session for this family.

Loving his full head of hair and creamy baby skin. Tracy chose warm colors that bring out his perfect skin tone. 

 

Such a detailed close up, showing his tiny feet and the resting position on a peaceful moment. Tracy has an special ability to calm down and keep babies in a great mood during the sessions. It takes a mother and a children oriented person to understand and manage such young tiny humans.

In this picture, Tracy wanted to capture the beauty in the difference of skin colors, and how tiny the feet are. It is one of the cutest parts of the body when they are so young, because you can feel how fragile and young they are.

We often show a close up of the mother and the baby, but this time we want to make sure you experience a close up with the father. Their bond is extraordinary. You can almost feel how smooth the baby skin is just by looking at the photograph.

We know its just early August, but we want to sneak a peak for the amazing Holiday Special Photo Sessions that are coming up these year. Stick around to check out more in the next few months.

 

Holiday Sessions are very limited and they are usually sold out really fast, don’t miss your chance once the time comes, contact Tracy for more information about this, specially is you are waiting for that special new member to arrive to the family this Christmas!

They Are Celebrating The Arrival Of The Youngest Son And You Will Love It!

This family got together at Tracy’s studio for a special request. They picked the First Year Plan for their family photography sessions and you can really see them growing in love together through the entire year.

Tracy wants to capture those sweet moments when the son is in the first steps in life. They gathered his favorite toys and even made him into a living cozy bear with blue eyes. 

The moment he starts crawling on the floor and working his way up to sitting up is a very special journey, it is definitely a special moment to be immortalized on a photograph.

This picture represents the special bond that he will always have towards his mother, and how happy she is to be with him. It is a classic pose that expresses a strong message.

The oldest sister wanted to be part of it as well, it is definitely one of the happiest times in the family. It is important to take in consideration that the little boy will grow up and be really grateful to have this high end quality pictures forever.

And a big picture including mom and dad is absolutely a must. It captures the love and bond of the family and how it is growing with the arrival of the new little member.

He was so small, he fit in this tiny bed and representing an older figure, we can see the older sister about to read a fairy tale to her little brother.

This plan is exclusive to the Tampa Bay area and provides families with priceless memories during that treasured first year. Everyone knows how fast that first year flies by. The New Beginnings Plan makes it easy to capture those precious milestones during that first year. It is exhilarating, amazing, exhausting but yet cherished and wonderful. The New Beginnings Plan makes it easy to capture those precious first milestones during the first year.

This Family Photography Session Will Melt Your Heart

Tracy is very passionate about performing photography sessions in her studio, but she is also always excited to get outdoors with families and shoot at a different scenery, with colorful backgrounds and taking advantage of the warmth that the summer brings. 

This time we want to share this session that took place at a nice outdoor spot in the Tampa Bay area and it’s meant to express the love bond that this family grows together every singe day.

 

The vibrant colors from the grass bring a very warm and fresh vibe to the photos, which is exactly what the family have been looking for. These memories will decor a wall in their homes or a page in their album. Tracy offers a variety of options for prints.

 

They are a very loving family, they enjoy playing together and thought it was the best idea to show a playful pose. You can feel the adventure and active side of the portrait in the father and son pose and you can see the more loving and caring side in the pose the mother and daughter hold for this particular photograph.

He loves playing with cars and it’s becoming a big collector of them. Tracy thought of it and decided to take a photograph of his favorite cars and as the years go by, he can go back and remember his first collection. It’s an unforgettable memory.

Have you seen photos that make you feel exactly what the person in it is feeling? This is one of them. Tracy captured the emotion and excitement that the daughter felt by visiting the park with the family. It was a fresh day with the perfect light and tone for this session.

 

Your family is the most important thing in life. The moments you live today won’t come back tomorrow, but you have the opportunity to invest in a photography session that will capture the best moments. Moments when you love, you laugh and love.

Don’t miss the opportunity to make incredibly sharp memories with your family. Contact Tracy for more information about her services in the Tampa Bay area.

Moments that will be remembered through portraits that are looked at and enjoyed everyday.

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.

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!

Happy Pumpkin Day

Pumpkin Day - Pumpkin patch collage
Happy Pumpkin Day – My Kiddos, 2008 – Current

Since 2008, one thing I do every year is take the kids to pumpkin patch and take a few pictures.  I will not lie, it gets harder and harder each year as they get older (especially with a middle schooler :)) BUT with a little bit of coaxing, arguing and of course some laughter I am still plugging away at it!  I love seeing the changes and even some of the things that stay the same year to year!  Happy Pumpkin Day everyone!

Family Photography at Florida Beach with Tracy Gabbard Means Lots of Fun

Beach session inquiries are in full swing so I thought I would do a little “throw back” from a beach session a few months ago.  These images are a true representation of this amazing family.  Their lives are crazy busy with 2 little boys but also they know how special this time is and these images will always remind them of a time quickly forgotten as their lives change and their boys grow.  Beach sessions with little ones include lots of play and games to make it fun and keep them going.  I think you can see that here! 🙂

Newborns and their big brothers and sisters

Brand New Big Brothers and Sisters in Studio (Tracy Gabbard Photography)

Photographing a newborn with a sibling (younger ones especially) is one of my favorite things in a newborn session!  I will not lie, much of the time it takes A LOT of patience and MANY clicks of the camera to capture a handful of sweet sibling photos but once they are captured, there is nothing sweeter!!!  What makes it so difficult to capture those precious moments?  Well…. let  me explain!  First of all newborns are typically photographed with in the first 5-12 days of birth.  Younger “big sisters or brothers” have just had their world rocked with a demanding baby!  After those first couple days when the newness of the baby has worn off for them, they often want NOTHING to do with this alien that just invaded their world.  Younger (preschool age) children can be difficult to photograph without the newness of a baby sibling SO throw that in the mix and you have a potentially challenging portion of the session.  I LOVE when the siblings interact with the baby.  These two below were “helping” cover the baby.  Sometimes encouraging them to “help” is a good way to get them in the same spot for a quick photo!

Newborns and their big brothers and sisters TracyGabbard.com

Trying to get a newborn to stay asleep while getting a preschooler to cooperate and “pose” is not easy.  Many times the best way to do this is to put the baby on something instead of having the sibling hold the baby.  Often young children don’t feel comfortable holding their new baby anyway and it can be dangerous as they are unpredictable and may possibly get up without warning and leave the baby.  I always have moms and dads helping hands close by for the baby no matter if he or she is in the siblings arms or in a prop.  Safety first, always!!!!  That is not to say that it is impossible to get a preschooler to hold their new baby!  It can be done but always safely on the floor and with adult arms close by to help.

And then there are always the “smiling” looking at the camera pictures”  Those are classic and always favorites.

I often think it would be funny to record the sibling portion of a newborn session!  With mom, dad and me working together to keep the older child in an area of the baby, and all of us acting silly trying to get them to look at the camera or bribing with little treats!  Maybe one day I will try to capture that on video! 🙂

Beautiful in Blue – Photo Sessions at TGP Clearwater FL

Beautiful in Blue – Many times, I find it exciting to make newborn photo sessions, sitting up photo sessions, even family photo sessions with blue as the theme.

Blue is traditionally associated with boys but little girls do look great in blue! Look at that sweet young lady, ‘looking up’ down there.  Doesn’t she appear wonderfully cute in her blue polka dots? What do you think about these babies in their stylish blue beds during their nap time? Oh my! I love staring at them. And, in that family photo, you can feel the close physical and emotional integration of the whole family wearing different shades of blue. I love them all so so much.

You, too, can create memories of your own like these at Tracy Gabbard Photography Studio, Clearwater. For more and latest photography visit frequently TGP at Facebook, or click on Contact.
