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 Beautiful Family Wants To Show You Their Amazing Year

With Tracy’s help, this beautiful family of four had the opportunity to capture the beauty and love in their lives by celebrating their daughter’s arrival to the family.

The New Beginnings Plan makes it easy to capture those precious milestones during that first year.

This session is meant to capture the vibrant energy of the newborn and bring warmth to the entire family. A single photo can be very powerful and a memory that will be portrayed in the memory of her family.

We can say the session is successful when we can all feel the love and kindness in her mother’s smile through this photograph.

And of course, a proud brother, we know he will take care of her little sister as she grows up.

Each session can be different but always unique, on this one Tracy created a beautiful canvas with roses and using pink to represent her femininity.

This photograph is special because here you can see how small she is in comparison to the box, but in the next picture you will see how fast she is growing and evolving, and that’s the beauty of this New Beginnings Plan, to show the timeline and the difference between day one and the first year.

You can see how much she has growth and how happy she is to be back at the studio with Tracy. It’s always fun times, every session brings positive energy and amazing memories.

We want to show how they can now stand up and start walking together, their bond is getting stronger every single day.

She looks like she has a secret to tell, such bright eyes! 

Time to lay down for a bit!

We made it to her first year, but the adventure is only about to start. There is so much more to capture through the years, and this is what drives Tracy to continue to provide this services.

This plan is exclusive to the Tampa Bay area and provides families with priceless memories during that treasured first year.

Baby's First Year Photo Album tracygabbardphotography.com

Baby’s First Year Photo Album – NBP

First Year Photo Album – Part of New Beginnings Plan

Look at all the gorgeous baby’s first year photo albums going out next week!  These are part of the New Beginnings Plan (NBP) of Tracy Gabbard Photography (TGP). These albums are amazing keepsakes that will be passed down for many generations!

Can you imagine having one of these to look at of your grandparent or great grandparent? What a lifetime keepsake! Digital images are wonderful for preserving and archiving but there is NOTHING like a quality printed print, wall display or album that you can touch, see everyday and/or share with loved ones. Sitting down on the couch with your child looking through an album is an experience that uses all the senses and that is priceless.

Flipping through some digital files on a computer is different. There is not an experience associated with that. Hence the families who have their baby’s first year photo albums are so lucky! They will all sit on the couch one day and share this with their children! 

Please visit TGP’s New Beginnings Plan (NBP) which includes Newborn Session, Sitting up Session, First Birthday Session and this lovely photo album. TGP will hand pick photos from each session for your baby’s first year album to create his/her 1st year story.  You can see some video samples by clicking on albums

If you have any question about the album, or want to join NBP, click on Contact Tracy to send your query or message.

A Few First Birthday Smash Cake Photo Sessions

First Birthday –¬†Tracy Gabbard Photography – ¬†When is it okay to dig in and really love all that messy cake? At their first birthday Smash Cake Photo Sessions. Listen for the laughter in their bright smiles and sparkling eyes.¬†Look at these delightful birthday performers! This darling girl is dancing to the stars and the boys are birthday cake drummers. Each child looks as yummy as the cakes and I love frosting mustaches!¬†You know what, this pink and blue cutie really did fall into the cake after that last picture. LOL!

Believe it or not!¬†The¬†soft blues and the tie perfectly fit in that one year old young man’s personality. I love how my camera¬†could¬†capture the exact way he approached things – when he first considered the cake with a solemn touch and when he was without his hat¬†ready to dig in. The best picture is the one when he is looking at the camera with a solemn smile, covered in a frosting beard.
