The Best Holiday Gift ♥ Maternity Photography

It is undeniable that Maternity Photography is in the top gifts you can give to an expectant mother or family this year.

Or any time of the year. But especially in these last days of the year, it is the best opportunity to give, share and be thankful for everything this year.

Whether you are giving this to someone else or to yourself, booking a Maternity Photography Session with Tracy Gabbard is the best idea. 

If you are looking for either indoor or outdoor Maternity Photography, Tracy Gabbard will make it happen. Her classy and elegant style will make any expectant family look incredible. 

She offers high-end quality Photography at her Studio in the Clearwater area in Florida. With outstanding natural lighting, she captures incredible photographs for her clients. 

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

Tracy has special Photography Packages for local clients. They are designed to start a Photography Journey. They will be able to capture every step from Maternity to Newborn Photography and all the way through the First Year.

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.

Motherhood: A Unique And Wonderful Journey + Mom & Baby Heart Melting Photos

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!

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!

You’ll love these Beach Maternity Photos but #15 will Steal Your Heart!

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

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!

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!
