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?

WOW! (clearwater high school senior photographer)

(clearwater high school senior photographer)”Wow”,  is all I can say about this adorable senior!  She was so beautiful and so much fun to spend the day with.  She choose to go for two sessions (in studio and on location) to make the most of these once in a life time images and she did a great job!  She brought lots of outfits, props, her bunny and even her sisters to the beach!  It’s no secret I LOVE when clients bring special things with them to sessions.  (clearwater high school senior photographer) Heres a quick preview 🙂

More of the class of 2011 (tampa high school senior photographer)

(tampa high school senior photographer)  More fun in the studio with this graduating high school senior! It’s always so much fun to get to know these “kids” and most of their time a member of their family comes for support as well.  This great senior brought along mom and a best friend.  Even though they are not in the sneak peak they  jumped in a few shots and had some fun with her!  It’s so much fun to watch these seniors loosen up as their session goes on.  We turn on the fan, turn up the tunes and have a great time!

Studio Fun (tampa high school senior photographer)

LOVE having Tampa HS Seniors in studio or on location!  It is fun to photograph people that can actually stand still and follow directions for more than just a few seconds! 🙂  This amazing graduating Senior was so much fun to work with!  So, all you graduating Seniors that have procrastinated your senior pictures, time is ticking….

BRRRRR! (tampa high school senior photographer)

BRRRR! But she ROCKED it!  You would never know that it was windy and COLD on the beach this night!  This high school senior was SO much fun and so was her family that joined us to keep us company!  She was willing to do anything and in between warming up in a jacket braved the cold in short sleeves and tank tops!  She even got a little wet in the water… just a little but I know it was SO cold!  And a shout out to the class of 2011…the end of the year is fast approaching so if you live or travel to Tampa, Clearwater or surrounding areas…. get your groove on and schedule your Senior sessions with TGP NOW! 🙂

High School Senior Photography 2011 (tampa,dunedin high school senior photography)

I love photographing all high school seniors this one came from the tampa/dunedin area!  As much of my photography is family and children (which I of course love as well!) it is fun to have a “subject” that actually stays where you put them! 🙂  This senior from Dunedin High School is an awesome baseball player with a cool car!  We had some fun at a local baseball field and instead of trying to change locations we made the most of the area we were at!  I think we accomplished lots of different looks and fun images.  Tampa high school seniors DO have a choice for senior portraits.  Yes, they MUST go to the contracted photography company for the yearbook picture BUT there is NO obligation to purchase.  Save your money and choose a custom tampa photographer (preferably TGP of course!)  that can offer lots more choices and time so that each senior can be themselves and have images from this special year that they can be proud of and that represent who they are. Being a tampa high school senior photographer, I always encourage seniors to bring things such as clothes, hobby items, pets, etc… that they love.  These make the photos more personable and unique.  It’s also fun to have some changes of clothes.  Even a school t-shirt of their high school or the college they will attending.  TGP offers amazing Senior albums that combine images from the whole session.  They are wonderful keepsakes that will last a life time.  Check out a sample album HERE.  On another “note” have you received the new TGP “E” letter?  It is full of great information, upcoming specials, reminders and soon Holiday Mini sessions and at times info on high school senior photography to! Yeah! If you haven’t received it sign up at the bottom right hand corner of this page and you will be added to the list.  I am even going to start adding a section on how to take better pictures with your own camera!  Lots of “chit chat” in this blog post about tampa, dunedin high school senior photography, and other things, now lets get to the fun stuff…. great tampa, dunedin high school senior pictures!

Well deserved blog post (tampa, clearwater family photographer)

Wow- what a session or half of a session I should say!  After a mushy, mucky beach, gathering dark  rainy clouds, a nice but graceful (ha!) fall from the photographer (yes, thats me!) and then some serious technical difficulties that actually ended the session early and caused us to schedule the other half another day…. I thought this awesome family deserved a quick post of a few of the images we did manage to get!

Isn’t she beautiful! (tampa, clearwater high school senior photographer)

I had such a great time with this Senior for her in studio session but such a hard time narrowing down her images for a blog post!  She made them all look awesome!  Congrats to this 2010 graduate!
