Many couples come every year to start this beautiful journey with her, to share it with the world and keep the memories forever.

The beauty of Pregnancy sparkles in every mother’s expression. You can see how happy they are. It’s the sweetest waiting time in any woman’s life.
Everyone has a different story. Sometimes she would have couples by themselves. Some other times it would be a family with kids who are expecting another baby. In every case, happiness is portrayed in their photographs in a tasteful way.
There are times where the best props are special objects that will belong to the baby. It’s a beautiful memory to be able to show when they grow up. To look back and see how much their parents loved them, even before they were born.
Let’s talk about that red, invisible thread that will always connect a mother to her baby and how we capture it through Maternity Photography.
It’s an eternal promise of love, an unbreakable bridge, the ultimate proof of love.
Pregnancy is the miracle of life and when the newborn arrives, it’s a before and after in the lives of millions of people in the world every single day.
Today we want to take a moment to show you how expressive these pictures are. And how immensely powerful a mother’s love can warm up our hearts and be kept in our memories forever.
You can see it and almost feel it in the way each woman holds her baby.
They are all different women, coming from different backgrounds, different stories and cultures, but they all share the same kind of love that only motherhood can bring to life.
Today we want to wish you an outstanding Friday and wanted to share with you some of the most beautiful pictures we have gathered from different photo sessions.
Tracy is a mother and she knows how deep they feel about their children, she offers a unique service to help families watch their children grow in front of the camera with a variety of packages that will fit your family’s needs.
And this is one of the favorite poses for every mom that comes in the studio, because especially when they are super small, they fit in their arms and they feel so warm and fuzzy. Plus it definitely reflects how similar mother and baby can look like.
And as they grow up, they start learning how to crawl and sit up before they walk and run around like crazy. It’s definitely a beautiful moment that every mother wants to capture.
Contact Tracy for more information about photo sessions, she is always available to answer your questions, have a happy weekend!
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!
This family decided to break the routine and get outdoors with one of the top photographers in Tampa Bay; Tracy Gabbard.
This maternity session was so much fun with such a sweet family. They were so excited to meet their new baby but started early so they could capture the beauty of pregnancy. It was a beautiful day with just the perfect weather. All the way to the sunset, they went for a walk and found really beautiful spots for their photo session.
Beach maternity sessions create the most precious memories from that special time in their lives, they were so much fun to work with and laughed through the entire session in such a positive photo shoot. Tracy was very excited to capture all their emotions and the love between them.
The beginning of a new chapter in your life is always one filled with joy, excitement and most of all, anticipation. With the arrival of a new baby, chances are, you will spend hundreds, even thousands of dollars on baby furniture, clothes, and even toys. And while many of these things are necessary, almost all of them will at some point be re-sold, given away or even tossed in the trash. What will you keep forever? The priceless images you invested in throughout the years your baby grows. Professional, timeless, quality images are not something to be taken lightly. These will be your memories that will be passed down and valued for your lifetime and your baby’s.
Don’t miss your opportunity to capture these beautiful memories for your family, contact Tracy’s studio today for a free consultation.
Tracy also provides photography services in the studio and offers a variety of packages for families, newborns, babies, children, and families, including her First Year Plan which captures the first milestones of the first year of a baby.

TGP Style White on White – it is my very favorite color!
I am always drawn to white in my portraits. To me, it is so beautiful, simple, clean and classic. In my eyes it represents a modern yet timeless look that captures the simplicity of a baby, child or family.
The Tracy Gabbard Photography studio is WHITE and it captures the light beautifully. White makes the baby, child or family “pop” because they become the color, they become the focus, they become the memory. Not the surroundings around them.
So in celebration of “white” 🙂 here are some of the many white on white images that I have been lucky enough to capture!
Look at that hair and those chunkers! She was super sweet and so snuggly for her session today. She LOVED being held (right up my alley! To bad I have to actually put them down to take their pictures! LOL!) and I loved snuggling her when she wasn’t modeling for her pictures! Mom is n’t on Facebook (yes, I know there are still a few left! :)) so giving her a quick peak of her session on the blog today! (tampa newborn photographer)
(Tampa maternity session) LOVED this session (even though it was pouring rain and sooo dark in the studio!). This mommy to be was beautiful and although she couldn’t share this time with her husband they will have special memories of her beautiful belly bump! (tampa maternity photographer)

(tampa maternity photographer) So I have to say that these two were absolutely adorable during their maternity session on this warm summer afternoon. I was so happy that the weather worked out for us! We were at a local park for this one and the sunlight was awesome! As a tampa maternity photographer, I can still remember how thrilled mommy and daddy were for the soon expected arrival of their sweet bundle of joy. Also, they love love love FSU (if you couldn’t already tell 🙂 Can’t wait to share their newborn session soon ! Stay tuned! (tampa maternity photographer)
(tampa maternity photographer) This awesome couple was lots of fun. They traveled from Plant City all the way to Clearwater Beach for their beach session. Their love for each other was totally obvious during their session and as a Tampa maternity photographer I love being able to capture that for them. The pure joy for their new baby truly makes the images so real and meaningful.
It was an absolutely beautiful night (as you can see). We thought it might be chilly but it turned out to be gorgeous. The wrap material on the beach was all Mommy’s idea. She braved changing on the beach (thankfully it was not to busy that night) and we even thought the “beach police” were headed our way at one point as she was changing! She was covered with a towel but we were all like nervous teenagers! LOL! We had tons of fun and captured some really great images for their maternity session. The couple’s newborn session was just as awesome and I look forward to sharing their precious baby girl soon! Stay tuned! (tampa maternity photographer)
(clearwater baby photographer) This special little thing was super interested in everything going on in the studio during her session! She didn’t want to miss anything! She couldn’t stay awake for the entire session but close to it! I am so excited to have her as one of the newest members of the New Beginnings Plan (although there are lots of new members lately). You can see her mommy and daddy’s beautiful maternity session here…. But for a special sneak peak of her newborn session just look below… (clearwater baby photographer)
(Tampa maternity photographer) Scheduling a beach session at this time of the year is always challenging with the unpredictable weather. Well, who am I kidding- scheduling a beach session at anytime of the year is challenging in Florida as we NEVER know when a rain shower could arrive but during this time of the year there are other elements to consider as well. Wind and cold temperatures are at the top of the concern list for this time of the year. It was not different for this tampa maternity session. We had it scheduled for just a little bit later but this smart mommy to be was watching the weather and contacted me to see if we could move it up a few days since a cold front was expected our our originally scheduled day. It was GREAT move (as you can see) since we had amazing light, beautiful temperatures and only a little breeze!
I am really looking forward to getting to know this couple this year as their next session will be their newborn session (delivery expected in just a few short weeks) as part of the TGP New Beginnings Plan. They choose to add on a maternity session to the plan and I think it was a very smart move considering how their session turned out! They will have amazing images to look back on and remember this special time of their lives! This will probably be their last “easy” beach session as I am sure any that they consider in the future will include an adorable child! LOL! (tampa maternity photographer)
(Tampa maternity photographer) Wow! We sure lucked out with beautiful weather for this beach session. This special couple is TGP’s newest member of the New Beginnings Plan. Can you believe this mommy to be is due in just a couple short weeks! She looks so amazing and so happy (daddy does to of course but I know it’s no secret that is is “all about mommy” during this time)! 🙂 We actually moved this session up a day early and it was pure luck that we did since the night we had originally scheduled ended up being one of the coldest nights of the year. But this evening was absolutely perfect! (tampa maternity photographer)
(tampa baby photographer) This sweet bundle of joy has only been in the world for seven days and he’s already melting hearts. I was lucky enough to get together with my close photographer friend and spend the evening with this little bundle of joy. We had an absolute blast with playing with him and although he was hungry at sunset he was the perfect model for the rest of the session. The lighting was perfect and so was the company 🙂
*Disclaimer- baby was safely spotted for all shots and specifically on the swing, the baby had hands on him at all times the rest was done in photoshop. 🙂 (tampa baby photographer)
(Clearwater maternity photographer) Ahhhh, the wind was in full force at this on location maternity. I know we were all worried about how the pictures would turn out with this special couple in a wind tunnel for much of the session but we were able to find a few spots that weren’t quite as bad and even the ones where the wind was blowing turned out amazing! I LOVE on location maternity sessions. It is so fun to be able to incorporate the natural beauty of outside with the natural glow of a “mommy to be”. I know for sure the couple is SUPER excited to meet their new baby as it has been a VERY LONG time coming. I can’t wait to meet the baby too 😉 That will be their next session in the TGP New Beginnings Plan. (clearwater maternity photographer)
(clearwater maternity photographer) I could have blogged these images a few days ago but I had such a hard time choosing what to show because they are all so amazing. This couple will have a super hard time narrowing down their choices! They are also members of the TGP New Beginnings Plan and their baby will be arriving VERY soon. I can not wait to meet them again only this time as a family of 3! There are lots to look at since I just couldn’t decide!
(Tampa maternity photographer) I am so excited to show off these maternity images to one of the newest members of the TGP New Beginnings Plan. Can you believe this mommy had her baby 3 days after this session and she was only 2 weeks early! She looks amazing… I know, don’t hate her! Just wait until I can show off her new daughter! BEAUTIFUL and yes of course, tiny.. oh so tiny. LOVED our session together! For now, enjoy these favorites!
(tampa baby photographer) There are some things about newborns that just capture me. Besides their innocence, and tiny little features, I love their peeling wrinkly skin and their jerky, uncontrolled movements (also know as the moro or startle reflex) and even that little umbilical cord stump. All of these things show how little they are and it is the only time in their life that these things will occur (at least naturally anyway LOL!). These things are characteristics of a newborn and I love when I can capture some of them on camera. I have a little series of the feet picture below (although I am only showing one here) and I must say it is one of my favorite pictures! Anyway, a special last minute welcome to this family to the New Beginnings Plan. I am the lucky one that was chosen when this family was left last minute with out a photographer to capture those first precious days of their babies birth! (tampa baby photographer)
(tampa newborn photographer) Ooooo SO SWEET! Last minute newborn session! I was so lucky to be the one she called and I was able to fit her in! Double bonus! 🙂 Happy Holidays to all! (TAMPA NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER)
(tampa newborn photographer) This little guy was so special… once he started sleeping he hardly woke up. His brother and sister were so proud of him and mommy was completely in love (as she should be!)! He one of the newer members of the exclusive TGP New Beginnings Plan and I am so happy because I can not wait to see how he has grown at his next session! Here is a sneak peak for the patient family awaiting their gallery! 🙂 (tampa newborn photographer)
(tampa maternity photographer) To go or not to go… to the beach for this maternity session….it was literally up in the air as I was driving to meet them. This mommy to be joined the TGP New Beginnings Plan had her heart set on a beach maternity session but the weather was NOT cooperating. This couple went down early to enjoy a bite to eat before our session. So they were there watching the clouds pour in (literally!) 🙂 Her first phone call was…. “I know it’s cloudy but I think it will be okay”. So, I packed up for the beach. On my way down her second phone call was “It’s raining, I think we better switch to the studio”. So, I slightly changed directions and headed there. Her third phone call was “I think it’s clearing up. Let’s try the beach”! So, I headed to the beach (which is one of my favorite places to shoot)! Well, as we all know, Florida weather is SO unpredictable and as it turned out, it ended up being windy, cloudy, cold AND rainy. But we made the best of it and I must say we captured some of my favorite maternity images ever! The weather made it a truly unique session and we were able to create some images that could have never happened with a perfect sunset. (tampa maternity photographer)
So, I am such a bad blogger, especially during the busy season. But I love to share special sessions and families that I get to meet. I am going to go back, pick a few sessions and share their stories and images. Tomorrow you will get to see this couples newborn session. He is SUCH a doll baby. I can’t wait to see him at his next session.
(tampa newborn photographer) So excited meet the new families that took advantage of the exclusive New Beginnings Plan discounts! Can’t wait to meet those little ones coming SO soon! If you are interested or know a mommy to be that is going to deliver in January or February don’t let this offer pass them or you by! It is the gift of a life time! You can read more about the New Beginnings Plan here or contact Tracy for more info! [email protected] or (727) 491-6476 (tampa newborn photographer)
(tampa maternity photographer) Oh blog…. I am sorry you have been so neglected lately! I am as backed up blogging as I was over the holiday season. Lots more to share and I will try to get caught up soon! Anyway, my soon to be niece is in that tummy and I can’t wait for her to arrive (which we are hoping any day now (she is due on 9-10-11… isn’t that cool? Especially since it is my husbands bday) we are hoping she will be early… of course! I am so excited to get my camera lens on her and snap away! 🙂 Anyway, I am so luck that my sister in law is truly one of my closest friends and I have NO idea what I would do with out her and her family! Since she has already seen these, it is not really a sneak peak for her but just a fun share for me. Enjoy! (tampa maternity photographer)
(tampa maternity photographer) I know, another gorgeous mommy to be! Seriously, she is due to have the baby in about 2 weeks! Oh yes, I can’t wait to meet their little bundle as they are new members of the TGP New Beginnings Package so as I am sad to see some of my little ones graduate I get to look forward to seeing new families grow. (tampa maternity photographer)
(Clearwater maternity photographer) What an amazing session to kick off my first session in my new studio! I will post images of that in the next few weeks as I finish up the details and put all the finishing touches in place! So, far all sessions in studio have been natural light which will probably mean the only sessions that will need studio light will be evening or really cloudy days. Anyway, these two love birds were so connected and happy it made for an easy going, laid back atmosphere helping to create awesome images that really shows their excitement and love for each other and the little one coming their way! (Clearwater maternity photographer)
(TAMPA MATERNITY PHOTOGRAPHER) I know, look at her…. she is due in TWO, yes, I said “TWO” days! Can you believe it? This session was a great as she looks (and you to dad…. don’t want to leave you out! :)). I can’t wait to meet their new little bundle arriving anytime now. They are part of the TGP New Beginnings Collection so I am lucky enough to be able to photograph them this whole year and watch them grow as a family! (tampa maternity photographer)
I love the maternity sessions with my New Beginnings Collection members. It’s great to finally get to meet them (if we haven’t already) and spend some time getting to know them and maternity sessions are just the time to do that. The next time I meet them they have a baby and we all know how the rest of the sessions go from there 🙂 Personal, “getting to know you” chit chat is VERY minimal as EVERYTHING is now about that precious little life! Its fun to watch these couples grown with their babies through out the year. This couple was special in many ways but one of them is that they have chosen to WAIT (yes, I said WAIT) until the baby is born to find out what it is! Okay- that tells me they will be amazing parents, to wait for that bit of news tells me that they have amazing patience! A trait we all know is a must have for kids! Anyway, I can’t wait to find out what they are having but I will have to wait with everyone else. At least I am on their “Call list” when the baby is born so I can find out right away! 🙂
Wow… I had the most difficult time trying to decide what images to blog from this Tampa maternity session! This special mommy to be is a member of the exclusive TGPNew Beginnings Plan. Maternity sessions are so special and each one is unique to the new mom. This Tampa maternity session was no different! This couple was amazing to work with and so much fun. We had perfect Tampa weather for this maternity session(okay, well maybe there were just a few drops of rain but they were quick to leave us). In order to make a really great maternity session it is always good to have a few changes of clothing. I have a few things as well that I always bring, just in case. I also LOVE when my families, pregnant mommies and high school seniors incorporate personal items into their session. This maternity session included a pair of baby shoes (shown below) that “daddy” wore as a little guy. As a Tampa maternity photographer I love to have sessions all over the Tampa area. The Tampa bay beaches always provide us with beautiful images but other fun “Tampa” places are Ybor City (or any local downtown area), local parks and many families choose their own homes for sessions. That makes it really personal! Anyway, here is a big ole’ sneak peak for this couple as I could not choose any less images to share. There are so many more great ones!
